Re: Serious question

Unless there is a safest way to do it, I think it would be best to give the crotch. It would be better to pass by face to face and smile. Now, if the other side was a ledge or rail to hold onto, then it would probably be safer to give the arse. Imagine making your way sideways down a row of seats at...

Re: Priest–penitent privilege

1). This is true, but the fact that it's an accepted belief and is in the Constitution indicates it is a widely accepted concept with historical roots and if you want to change it, then the onus is upon you to come up with acceptable reasons why that should be so. 2). You miss the point, not for th...

Re: Kinky Christians.

That's not quite how it works, Charles. You have tried to make a point with several outlandish statements. I've asked you to explain some of them but instead you try to ignore your own comments and change the subject. You can't just speak a bunch of nonsense to support your point and when called on...

Re: Kinky Christians.

To answer your questions, of course the 50,000,00 or more recent deaths caused by the mass atheist/communist movement were triggered by atheism. It was done in the very name of atheism. Yeah right. The victims' religiosity was an outlying result in Pol Pot's efforts. Not denying he persecuted those...

Re: Priest–penitent privilege

Unfortunately, the answer to your question requires an understanding of American history........ which puts you at a disadvantage here, Charles. Much of American colonization was triggered by a desire to escape religious persecution. Eventually, this led to a widespread acceptance of the belief (wh...

Re: Why should the rich pay more taxes?

Does "more" mean more dollars or a higher percent?

If a person is rich and he has more to protect from burglars or an invading army, wouldn't it be reasonable that he pay more for this protection since he has more at stake?

And what about the attorney who defends the killer who knows the person is guilty but because of attorney/client privilege and/or the case of a lifetime still puts on a show to let them go free.

Spark Plugs replaced by Lasers?

If you own a car that is less than 10 years old, you probably don't change your plugs, points, rotor and wires anymore. Its too complicated. It took my a half hour just to find my eight plugs in my 1998 F-150. Here's something that might revolutionize the efficiency of the combustion process. Lasers...

Priest–penitent privilege

Disclosures made to clergy members while in active practice of their clerical duties as spiritual advisors are protected from disclosure. What do you think? I think this stinks if it is true. Priests/clergy should not be exempt from any legal proceedings that "normal" people would be. (Same goes for...

Re: Would you support Drafting U.S. troops to defend Israel?

What do you believe the US should do under such circumstances? My gut feeling is he wouldn't attack back with nukes. Perhaps everything short of that, embargo, invasion, occupation, and this would probably occur with near unanimous worldwide support - more than existed for Iraq. This would be more ...
