then again i know why there is no logic in that, they posses no logic, no rational mind, they are minions to their own creation
The judge didn't take the kid away from his parents, just told them that they can't raise him in their faith as it would 'confuse' him.

I'll have to see if I can dig up the new report.

That's the news article. It turns out that the ruling was later overturned!
See the story here: http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/a ... /508180520
Which is great news for the family, as well as for Pagans everywhere.

Look up "The Orkney child abuse case". Prbably best to google it. THAT will let you into their "logic" a little.** #-o

The second parents have more chance of anything. Consider that the prison population of the entire Western world is more than 80% christian.

** Or go to www.bbc.co.uk , Or Times newspaper (London Times), and use their search engine.

I had noticed. :-D :-D

One thing though Kelreth; When I get like that I allways think "Is this worth doing State time for?" Normaly the answer is "No".

Life is short enough without wasting months, or even years, making number shields.

There is allways a better, and more satisfying way.

"Mental assasination" is fun, and keeps the brain fresh. :lol:

but I don't agree with this:
Anyway, it is the fault of women for putting up with it.
For one thing, those who are raised in an Fundy environment with conservative views on women feel they have no choice in the matter. If they go against it, they're going against their god.
Maybe this notion of mine is due to growing up with a surprisingly liberal catholic family?
I was always told (despite enduring a large amount of abuse) that I could be whatever I wanted to be and that I could have out of life whatever I needed out of it...even by my own father.
My father told me that if a man does not treat me as well as he does then I should just leave.
Mind you all I did have a very violent childhood even......the difference I think is that the women punched back.
I think that too often women enable themselves to be treated poorly.

I just have to say, I love when things generate discussion.

You guys are great!

oh really.

Well it's spelt wrong, and used in the wrong context, as it is in most of those definitions in the link.

The word you should have used was "zu".

No. Just "zu". As the rest of the sentence is in English, there is NO correct context.

"pissed" does not exist in German.
