    When would you have closed it?
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

        Gotcha. Other than the HBofCJ distraction it seemed to stay mostly on topic.

            The topic was the confederate flag being flown on a fire truck. Everything, other than the HBofCJ distraction could be tied back to that, even the religious sidetrack.

            By the way, I have been told worse than "yer outta yer bleedin mind!" by better than you!

              I don't believe that religion was a "sidetrack" at all in the discussion. The flag has a direct connection to slavery. Religion was used to support slavery. The fact that religious morals didn't eradicate the practice shows this.

                I agree with you. Truth is religion, including Christianity, has been used to justify some horrendously evil deeds.

                    They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

                    I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

                      I'm sure part of the reason was the whole PC attitude that everybody, including major corporations such as the company that owns this site, feel that they have to adhere to, which in the end limits discussion and actually infringes on our1st Amendment rights.

                      I'm sure that they were concerned ...... actually probably a better word would be scared ...... that something would be said to trigger a reaction from the PC group and the left, given the hot button nature of the topic.

                      Right or wrong, everybody that could be impacted financially by any type of negative, or non-PC, discussion regarding any of today's hot button issues will be doing more and more of this. It's really quite sad as slowly but surely we will see the right to free and open discussion in any public forum disappear over time (and not an especially long time).

                              There were a LOT of Christians that opposed it and died to get rid of it... guess you never heard of the abolition movement. get your facts straight, religious morality did help get rid of it.
