Exit

I don't have a problem with moderation when something gets out of control, personal attacks are involved, or derailing is taking place, but I feel we've crossed into policing opinions or policing perceived insensitivity with this latest Orlando tragedy, and that's not something I'm willing to contin...

Let's just all appreciate yet again how woody (and now Thorne) are proposing that the victims of a horrific mass shooting share some amount of the blame for not carrying guns themselves.

Thanks for that, Vision. You're wrong and you've missed the point. The truth is sexual desire is not on the level of physical traits. That's as ridiculous as it is convenient. Furthermore it's a small or dishonest mind that tries to put everyone who doesn't agree with homosexuality in a single box f...
