    No, you just don't like the fact you got bested in a debate we had.Let's be honest - when the conversation goes against you and you have tosomehow explain an indefensible position, you *do* start swearing, andthen leave.
    I thought that was Brian? OK, maybe it's both of them.

    well, Brian stays around and at least tries to explain his position.
    Tony does not. He gets angry, swears at you, and leaves the conversation.

    Something about the heat and the kitchen or somesuchthing

      to attend church on the Sabbath; lying, swearing, and drunkenness; and
      the
      playing of games (such as cards, dice, and shuffleboard) in public.
      They
      also mandated more severe punishments for crimes committed on the
      Sabbath
      and regulated the sale and consumption of alcohol. Violators of blue
      laws
      might be assessed monetary fines, be whipped, be forced to spend time
      in
      the
      stocks, have body parts burned or cut off, or even receive the death penalty."
      What I don't understand is how Tony can say that a statement that Blue
      laws
      (that penalized the population for things like failing to attend church
      on
      Sunday) were a violation of the separation of church and state is "bulls***". I think it widely accepted that these violated that
      principle -
      therefore they have been taken off the books. Well, gee, Joy. We were talking about alcohol sales, and you've completely changed the discussion and attributed my position to it.
      Huh? Alcohol sales? We weren't discussing alcohol sales, we were
      discussing blue laws- which were far, far broader than alcohol sales.

That would be the "thou

        the
        > blue laws were enforced that was the religious practice behind it. They aren't forcing you to worship any particular God. And last I knew, not buying booze on Sunday was not part of my particular religious doctrine.
        I think you missed the point. The dominant religion of the time believed that one should not do business on Sunday. Therefore they passed laws that said you could not do business on Sunday. Therefore it was legally enforcing a religious doctrine.
        So what? The dominant religion at the time thought killing was wrong. Sothey passed laws against killing. Therefore it was legally enforcingreligious doctrine.I get it. It's not enforcing religious doctrine if YOU agree with it.
        OK, Tony, now look it from the other extreme. Suppose that
        the majority of people in your community demand that you
        sacrifice your firstborn to Moloch. Or a bunch of people
        move in who think that stealing and killing are OK. Do you
        agree that their views should set the standards for the
        community?

        At the moment, a fairly big issue in this part of the world
        is whether the inhabitants of Pitcairn island should be
        allowed to ignore British law.

        If you can be bothered to read this, would you like to get
        back to us and tell us if you approve of "their" community
        standards?
        Kind of like requiring plain brown wrappers on porn mags in the convenience stores. No, this was NOT like requiring plain brown wrappers on porn mags. This was requiring people of differing religious views to fall into line and not do business on Sunday.
        It's called "community standards". If you don't like them, move to adifferent community.

        Actually, this is in a rural, very conservative, very, very, very unenlightened area.
        Do you seriously believe that Christmas, in American society today, has anything to do with Christ?
        To an awful lot of people, it does.
        That's not what I asked.
        -Tony (Who wears a wristband every year that says "Jesus is the reason for the season" ) My point exactly.
        But that's just me. Ok, I think Abortion is a sacrament of radicalfeminism. So we should not use federal money to support someone'sreligion.So there.
        You are free to think what you wish, but I will point out
        that the cost of an abortion is orders of magnitude cheaper
        than paying for child support for unwanted kids, as well as
        the increased cost for schools, police, prisons, etc.

        If you, or your religion, opposed abortion, then are you or
        they willing to bear the increased costs of these other
        services?

        Regards,
        "nilkids"
