    Dude, we can't have experts deciding things that they're experts on! That's elitist!

    It's like those damned pilots. Always acting like they know best how to fly the plane. I vote we let that guy in seat 32D fly, he seems like someone I'd like to have a beer with. Whose with me?

    Yes, and all the other times pedophilia is brought about in a thread about homosexuality it does not seek to make a point. I guess the difference is... well there is no difference really. You're simply splitting hairs.

    No I am not. His response was accurate and was used to show a point without inferring in any way homosexuality has anything at all to do with pedophilia. It was about the judge, not pedophilia. That just happened to be the case.

    You mite want to take the board out of your eye, lol.

    More hair splitting. Yes, Blackdog, as we all know whenever people bring up pedophilia in a homosexuality thread it does not seek to find a link between the two. Even though that's the exact intent each and every time. Please stop being intellectually dishonest?

In that case, as in the current Iowa situation, the people decided at the next election that the judge lacked the qualifications and temperament to keep his job.

    Politicians are not the only ones who occasionally suffer from a case of terminal arrogance.

    Then please point out where in his post he was comparing or making it known homosexuals are pedophiles. He did not even imply such nonsense.

    Notice no mention of the sex of the victim or criminal.

    Ah I see you're well versed in the art of strawmen. Here is what I said.

    Pedophilia. Godwin's law for Homos.
    Care to tell show us where I said he compared anything to anything? I said he brought it up in a thread about homosexuality. Just like every other time somebody else brings up pedophilia in a thread about homosexuality in an attempt to draw a link between them. Do you have anything to add to the thread? Or are you going to continue creating straw man arguments?

    I'm proud to see that judges are denied he ability to legislate from the bench.
