    You say in your description of yourself that you are clinging to your Bible. Do you think threatening a lawsuit in order to get a settlement is biblical?

    A yes or no answer will do, preferably with a supporting passage from scripture.

    And being on laptops for an hour with headsets off ...yeah....right. I wonder if they were joined in a hot liaison instead and just lost all track of time in the heat of the moment.
    Northwest rules specifically permit pilots to be on their laptops. Delta rules, the rule-set that the airline was in the middle of switching to due to a buyout, does not. I'm certainly not defending their hour-long escapade but to say that it shouldn't have happened at all demonstrates a misunderstanding of commercial piloting. Most of the time, pilots are little more than passengers in the cockpit.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That wouldn't mean they have actually committed reckless endangerment, that means you perfected your ability to scare others into submission. Big difference.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
