re: So, we're not a theocracy, but there are religious morals being forced in school - Mephistopheles
[quote]Me ONE, you ZERO [/quote] Not even close. The whole point of declaring humanism/atheism/agnosticism a religion is a simple trick on human inability to judge percentages correctly. It goes like this, person A doesn't believe religious (i.e. deist) views of the world are supported b...

re: Report: Schools implant IUDs in 6th grade girls -- no parental notice... - Mephistopheles
[quote] This program certainly isn't. Not for log. The stuff in the OP isn't just a moral issue. It's an unethical and illegal circumvention of the parents rights and authority over their child.[/quote] I can't claim to know the law on IUDs in Washington, but in Texas (and it seems in al...

[quote]Based on a CNN poll released this morning. 57% of Americans believe the battle flag to be more about southern pride and less about racism. Only 33% of Americans believe the flag to stand for racism. LINK [/quote] Ok. You'll be interested to know about a similar situation from last...

re: Report: Schools implant IUDs in 6th grade girls -- no parental notice... - Mephistopheles
[quote]It's about coming to ridiculous conclusion based on a possibility. If these kids "may" be abused, why is the solution giving them an IUD? Why isn't it dealing with the possible in abuse? [/quote] They're not mutually exclusive. One should be mandatory, the other a possibility. CPS and the...
