It is just as twisted if not more so than the actions of those you are acting on. The old eye for an eye type of justice is just barbarianism.
    It is a toxic influence on the spirit, but one could dismiss such an argument as the words of someone who hasn't suffered to the point of hating someone enough to want them to be brutally punished.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Im not sure if this is true or not but I was talking to someone from Canada and they said there it is legal to nullify a newborn babies reproduction processes if it is born with retardation. She said her neighbors kid was born with down syndrome so they gave the baby a vasectomy..... If this is true I say Canada needs to change their laws or im going to congress and proposing America declares war. :p

    What part of "just because you can doesn't mean you should" was confusing to you? Let's go over it slowly so that you can understand, ok?

    The forum moderators decide what you CAN do. So we have established that you CAN get yourself involved in discussions about domestic British politics, you are indeed allowed to do that.

    Your own sense (or lack thereof) of decency should dictate what you SHOULD do.

    Get it now? There are quite a few things that are legal to do, but still not right to do. Just because we don't legislate morality doesn't mean you should go around doing whatever the hell you feel like doing.

    I don't get the impression he had anything forced on him.

    The article makes it sound as though everyone agreed he should have the procedure done but doctors can't do it because he doesn't have the mental capacity to consent. It looks to me like he went to court specifically looking to have it done.

    We have enough problems on our own.
    What does being British or American have to do with talking about something in the news?

    Well, if you're British, you have to decide whether you want to live in a nation where this sort of sterilization is permitted. You have skin in the game, so to speak.

    If you're American, you're just shooting your mouth off, pretending like you know what's best for Britons when actually we're two different cultures.

    Oh well then you do realize you are going off on someone that has nothing to do with you for going of on someone that has nothing to do with them right? Pretty hypocritical if you ask me. Whats the point of saying "Its none of your business." When I can just say "Im interested therefore it is my business, but it isnt your business that I am interested unless you are interested in making this hoopla your business."

    You're overthinking this.
