"Debunks"; "scored a double hit"; "blew wide open the fallacy"; "demolishing the US led tolerance"; "nail the intolerant backlash"...
Unsubtle and very telling expressions of praise — at the very least support — for a most unfortunate and fatally myopic world view. However, I'd say you've done a workmanlike job of debunking, double hitting, and blowing wide open the original post.
Just a guy selected by a bunch of people to be the head of their group.
That pretty much puts it in perspective. Nicely done!
His holiness the pope is setting out to deny the findings of social science for the last hundred years or so.
That's funny I was thinking about all the social science his statement accorded with but, yeah, you're right, he's basing his conclusions on a much longer time-frame than 100 years.
I'm suspending disbelief at some of the more preposterous dog poo postings appearing in this thread until after Christmas but would take this opportunity to simply wish all my forum friends and fans a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.
Doesn't matter to me what one's "religion" or belief system is. Pope, Rabbi, Master Electrician... what I'm listening for is that person's unbiased POV. His/her acceptance of beliefs/practices/orientation/etc. that may fall outside his/her own — as well as for a logical, transparent rationale for his/her position and statements.
Nor do I discount those beliefs that are steeped in history and tradition — as long one acknowledges the that was then, this is now principle. Without history, we've got no illumination on the path to the future. But our learnings from history have to be adaptable to the future and the present, too!
Yeah well you think everyone's anti gay who doesn't believe in gay marriage - from the President-elect sideways to 99 per cent of all humanity. The strident and intolerant shouting of your message alters not the fact that yours is a quirky and minority viewpoint.
