    Nobody says life is fair, but refusing to hold the irresponsible accountable because some innocent might get harmed only encourages further irresponsibility. Take those children out of the home and put them elsewhere. I've said that before.

    Cephus your first post was "I think people that have children that they can't financially support should be sterilized immediately and that child removed from their home" I don't understand having someone come in after the child is born and screw things up even more. And I can't square any of your opinion on this subject with your Libertarianism.
    Quote where I said that because I never did. You, my friend, are full of it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Where? Who will pay for it? You don't want to pay for anything beyond your own nose already, so I don't expect you to happily pony up the dough. We have a shortage of quality foster parents already, so do we bring back institutional orphanages?

    Define "irresponsible". Is it when a woman gives birth and gets public money? Is it permanent, or temporary? Would a family whose parents lost their jobs in the recent recession, and are thus either in a downturn or even getting food stamps, irresponsible and subject to having their kids taken away? Where is the line between irresponsible bad parent and poor good parent?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
