    Sadly, yes. The merchants of hate convince them that oppressing and abandoning their children is loving them.
  2. What position?

    "Believe my testimony"?!? What planet are you on? You are no more supposed to "believe my testimony" than Fitzroy was supposed to "believe Darwin's testimony" that the slaves might be saying what...

    Under duress? What the hell are you talking about? It's her personal Twitter, and there's no indication that anyone did anything more serious than vocally objecting to the theoretical course of...

    Yes. "Color" is a mental category. It describes the natural world, but does not exist in it; it is the name for our subjective perception of the wavelengths of reflected light. It can be categorized...

    In some places, certainly. That doesn't make it either morally defensible or historically inevitable.

    You seem to be responding to someone else's post?

    Then please use your scissors and paste to present the Bible passages which teach that slavery is a grotesque evil which debauches the slave owner. Find us the Biblical prophet, teacher, or speaker...

    Reading the book by hunting through it (with mental scissors in hand) for "clobber passages" to support your political projects is, I would argue, definitely abusing it. That isn't how books are...

    Why did you write that? Did a middle aged man on the internet claim to know what she thinks?[/QUOTE]

    I know Mrs. Berry is black, but that does not make her a slave. Such confusion of centuries...
  9. A woman is cast to play a cis male character:...

    A woman is cast to play a cis male character: "Omigod the seas will burn if James Bond is ever played by a woman! This is an outrage to all good decency and artistic sense!"

    A woman is cast to...

    Ah, silly me, asking a woman what she thinks. I should have remembered to ask a middle aged man on the internet what she thinks.
  11. You're acting like you're defending Berry, but...

    You're acting like you're defending Berry, but she seems to understand the situation a lot better than you do, and is fine with it. So you attack her too, and suggest that she doesn't know what...
  12. No need, as you have not really contradicted my...

    They are so pro-science that their fear of Covid goes far beyond the scientific data available about the dangers of Covid.



    You're now going to tell me I said Covid is completely safe and a...

    Good luck! We're not going to just forget which political party tried to sell us all out to a brainless proto-fascist race-baiter, and who opposed him. The only people who will still be Republicans...

    Funny how, when the police force and court system are stacked with white nationalists, they never find that "mysterious deaths" were hate crimes.[/QUOTE]

    Holy Crap. I had no idea. Could you...

    Also, wouldn't taking the party largely online tend to benefit the Bernie Bros? Moderate Democratic politicians tend not to be very computer literate relative to their younger, smarter colleagues....

    Really? The Democrats aren't the anti-science party, I see no reason to doubt the stated purpose of these rules.

    Black people call other black people "nigger" far more than white people do. Are they racist against their own race?[/QUOTE]

    Words aren't inherently racist or not. People are. Context and meaning matters. Why words are said matters. We're living in a world where words are routinely taken out of context.

    It's weird how he (and the other white nationalists) think the Squad is some kind of major power to be reckoned with in Washignton, while their own party tends to sideline and ignore them.

    You know, one of my college room-mates was writing a senior seminar project on a very similar premise. But I'm not versed in physics well enough to comment.

    It is said that St. Francis knocked holes in his chapel so the horses outside could witness the adoration of the Host along with the rest of the congregation, if they so chose. It's amazing such a...

    I've always thought Ezekiel was the most trippy member of the anthology. Though it is worth considering the sort of times it was written in. It's not really possible to diagnose mental conditions at...
