    P1. If all angels have wings, then some angels have wings
    P2. All angels have...

    For me, it’s not the robbery itself that is worthy of death; it’s the immediate threat of a life-ending scenario playing out that captures my attention. It doesn’t matter WHY the gun wielding person...

  8. I admit error. I have some things to mull over.

    Yeah, yeah, sure.

    It's just that Catholics were upset that their kids went to school to be led in a Baptist Prayer. That was the first Church/Separation lawsuit. And the decision was to separate...

    But there’s nothing in the constitution that would have us think that. It would take a whopsided interpretation of the constitution to believe that. It’s wishful thinking.

    If it’s an imposition at all, it’s just someone exercising his own right to free speech in earshot of another. That the person may not remove himself from the conveyed message is a different matter....

    State-sponsored mandatory secular atheism is an imposition of someone else's religion on me.
