    I rest my case.
    Poor analogy. If we were discussing genocide and I only cared about the genocide of Americans, then maybe this analogy would work. But we rarely discuss genocide on this forum, probably because everyone agrees that it's wrong.

    We discuss the issue of religious freedom on this forum frequently, yet you only comment when there's an event that affects your religion. And it's not like I referenced cases of Muslims being denied the right to build a mosque in other countries. It's happening in the US. It has probably even happened in the state you live in right now. It might have even happened in the city you live in right now. That's a far cry from something that happened on the other side of the world a generation ago that we all agree is wrong.

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    You clearly did not read my post from the Volokh Conspiracy at the Washington Post:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/v...ght-to-choose/

    It's about Muslim cabbies.

    What did you write? I don't see any posts by DiscoBiscuit.

    LOL, what?

    You linked to a Washington Post article implying that proves you care about religious freedom for Muslims, but I don't see any comments by DiscoBiscuit. If you commented using a different a name, I wouldn't know. That's information you'll have to provide.

    I've got this thing called a job that prevents me from having the time to post like I used to.

    But here's the post itself anyway. The fact that I agree with it won't matter to you, but I do.

    Oh, so you linked that article and I'm somehow supposed to know something about your views based upon that.

    I don't even read most of the articles you link. You link far too many and don't put your own thoughts out there nearly enough (unless you're insulting someone). If all you're going to do is post links, you might as well not even post. You're as useful and annoying as website banner ads.

    I function more like a news aggregator really.

    If you didn't read it, that's your problem not mine. And it's pretty easy to get a grasp of my opinions if you read the articles I post.

    I would expect you to at least make sure what you accuse me of is accurate before you do so

    You could easily be replaced with a bot. That would actually be an upgrade because then we'd get the articles we won't read without insecure snide comments.

    People not understanding you is their fault, not yours for failing to properly communicate, right? That girl you were after in your relationship thread dodged a bullet not hooking up with you.

    There are plenty of fish in the sea buddy.
