    You've said the same thing before, and it was a lie. A Real Man doesn't renege on their vows

    This brings us back to the fact that in the past, you actually became angered when I claimed your self-created religion...which you have said you drew on and created from multiple sources...places you as the actual deity, since you created all His laws and precepts. Because as inventor, it places you as the ultimate Authority, and the 'deity' is just some figurehead. I mean, it's 'your cafeteria-plan' for the belief system.

    So yes, you can kill on a whim, or justify your 'theocratic government's' doing so. I know such a world where everyone says and does and thinks exactly as we say so appeals to some people. That can even be done beneficently. Or punitively...as your system describes.

    But their justice system is perfect for your belief systems. You can learn the language.

    A real woman understands that her place is not to be imposing her desires or thoughts onto the Man. In a proper society the only opportunity for the woman other than staying with Him is to return to her family (if they'll have her) or become indigent.

    Science has no relevance in anything, so far as I'm concerned.

    Adultery requires sexual activity. Not medical procedures.

    Adoption is fine, as are step-children.... In a HETEROSEXUAL couple's relationship. There is no situation in which it is proper for a homosexual couple to even exist, so there can be no situation where it is appropriate for them to be allowed to interact with children.

    100% correct.

    It is what I believe. Nothing is going to change that. So debating it would be a total waste of both of our time.

    Moralistic Government, not Theocratic. Who ever talked about being befeficent? Society's role is maintaining Law and Order. That makes it a punitive concept by definition.

    It may be, but I don't speak their language and I'm too old to learn a new one.
