    (the point of my post: whether the Roman Empire was a good or bad thing is too complex a question for a simple answer.)

    Now, someone is cutting the BSA off for accepting homosexuals and everyone is down on them with harsh criticism.


    Action A and Action B are identical.... an org says "we can't support the BSA in their policy" and denies access. You cheer one and denigrate the other because the action is taken for opposite causes.


    So apparently... it's perfectly fine to "stand on principle"... but only when you agree with the principle being stood upon, right?
    The BSA were wrong to discriminate against gays.

    The BSA is right to no longer discriminate against Gay scouts.

    This is about condemning bigotry and discrimination.

    I don't support genocide against the Muslims. What I support is any measure that beats down monotheism in any form-------anywhere, any time......................

    Standing on a good principal is good, standing on a bad principal is stupid or evil. So, basically, yes. Doesn't everyone think so?

    Does this include the Holocaust? The number of monotheists went down by a good 11 million from that event.

    There are no "exceptions". Monotheism must be halted, and, hopefully, reversed wherever and whenever it rears it's ugly head. It's a war, baby.......................

    And when that jumbled sentence was pointed out I showed how it still was inaccurate.

    False, I did no such thing. Unlike you, when I make a mistake, an error I admit it instead of trying to change topic and move goalposts.

    And what mistaken claims do you assert here? That's twice you invoked that without proof.

    This is a lie. Your list included several from the OT, not just one.

    It seems that you are guilty of that which you accused brothern of:

    You're not convincing us who are christians, we can see your error.
