re: Flight Logs Put Clinton, Dershowitz on Pedophile Billionaire’s Sex Jet - Bestbank Tiger
[quote]I would wager the majority of those who have sex with children or adolescents do so because of the years of suppressed sexuality and not because they have a burning desire for kids. [/quote] So how do you explain (proven) Jerry Sandusky and Roman Polanski and (allegedly) Michael Jackson? A...

[quote] What a strange thng to believe[/quote] He's referring to perfect contrition, which is contrition based only on the fact that you offended God, with no other considerations. Most people aren't capable of that. They're motivated by repentance but also by fear of earthly and/or eternal repe...

[quote]The crime-fraud exception also does require that the crime or fraud discussed between client and attorney be carried out to be triggered.[/quote] That raises a question--should Michael Jackson's lawyer have been required to reveal their communications? (I'm using him as an example because ...

[quote]I actually know what piece you're talking about, and I wasn't a fan of it either. Hitchens did that often though, and he made a good point about justifying those attacks on the recently deceased.If we use the 'recently deceased' argument every time someone dies and spare any mention of their ...

[quote]I can make reasonable distinctions on an individal basis without sweeping everything under a single label[/quote] I prefer to sweep everything under a label called the Bill of Rights. Even when it results in outcomes I dislike, like letting a horrible criminal go free. Attorney-client p...

[quote]but all are expected to abide by the civil law of the state and religion does not exempt them from that law.

[quote]If expecting priests to be held accountable for not turning in murderers and rapists means I desire to trade freedom for secuity then so be it. I find it unfortunate that religious ideology makes that statement anything other than an obvious good to some people. [/quote] Why don't you work...

[quote] This is pretty much what everyone is suggesting. We need to protect people from being abused (well no doubt I'm completely for that) but we are going to take away fundamental rights to do so. (yeah I'm not ok with that) [/quote] Yep. We all agree on wanting to prevent abuse. That's why ...

[quote] Stop with the hyperbole. I get that this is a deeply held conviction but its bringing out an ugly and irrational side of yourself. [/quote] Objecting to conscription is ugly and irrational? Pointing out the inconsistency in your polygamist argument is hyperbole? (Unless you oppose SSM...

[quote] You set up a bunch of strawmen and then furiously knocked them down[/quote] How is any of that a strawman? I'm pointing out what happens if you apply your logic to those other situations. You either believe in the Constitution even though it sometimes protects bad people, or you trade li...

[quote]Religious freedom is defind by what is socially acceptable at the tim and always has been.[/quote] So why even have a Constitution? That basically means freedom is just whatever 51% of the people think you should be allowed to do. By your logic, the judges who are ruling in favor of sam...

[quote] I havd no idea where this tantrum came from.[/quote] How is it a tantrum? You're saying innocent people can potentially be harmed unless we do away with religious freedom. That same logic can be used to justify all kinds of other government intrusions, like the ones I listed. Do yo...

[quote] If I want to play with 4 outfielders and no second baseman, then that's what I'll do. [/quote] Teams do that sometimes--in reverse. Bottom of the 9th, tie game, bases loaded, one out...they play with 5 infielders and 2 outfielders....

[quote] so throw out the freedom of religion? [/quote] Basically, yes. The Constitution applies only when he agrees with it. We should also abolish all due process protections. Those are based on an archaic, 18th-century document that borrowed those concepts from even older precedents. What i...

[quote]I thought Belichick's main point was that the footballs are calibrated to the proper weight in the warm locker room.
