  1. When you are right, you are right!!
    I wish the whole nation could read what you just stated! They need to see it to perhaps let it sink in!!

  2. I think the reason why some people rally so hard against evils they commit themselves is because they know how evil these things are first-hand.
    Is it hypocritical? Sure. But, perhaps they are theh most qualified people to know what to look for and how severe it really is.

  3. Ooh, ooh, pick me! I know the answer. It’s a psychological defense mechanism called ‘Reaction Formation’. It’s like the guy at church who wigs out about permission slips, multiple chaperones and scrutinizes youth leaders only to turn out to be a pedophile himself. It’s a fairly primitive one, but it is an unconscious (as all defense mechanisms are by definition in the Freudian system) way of dealing with feelings, attributes or proclivities that someone finds distressing. It is also hypocritical, but you were more on the money when you said it was psycho and recommended counseling.

  4. Dossy, you don’t let drunks decide what the legal limit is… you can’t let pedophiles make the rules, even if they happen to be on the harsh side. You make them recuse themselves.

  5. The founding fathers of this country were a bunch of civil disobedients and they set the foundations for the legal system in this country.
    Sorry Kevin, this pattern happens all the time.

  6. I’m not saying the pattern doesn’t happen all the time, and I don’t think I was talking about civil disobedience at all. I’m talking about what amount people who are unable to deal with their own guilt and shame making laws that make criminals out of themselves and others who haven’t really committed a crime. If they were actually Christians and had any amount of empathy, we’d be in a better place. But no, they’ve gotten all messed up because they’re not only repressed, they’re stuck in repressive religions that make them unable to deal with their own issues. It makes them lash out at others instead of dealing with their own problems. It’s a disease, and it shouldn’t be codified and the rest of us shouldn’t have to put up with it.
