Re: Re:

Who are you trying to fool? All those groups have intermarried in this country. And uncomfortably close to where I live, unfortunately. How is Jimmy Savile? Although those men up your way should have and hopefully will be arrested one day. But whilst we're on this matter where were the English pare...

Re: Re:

The same goes for 'multiculturalism'--another addition to the PC dictionary. Different cultures don't mix and never will, which is why you find so much crime in 'multicultural melting-pot' areas. You don't often find Chinese in Somalian gangs, or vice versa. Whilst no friend to the phrase "mul...

Re: The God Who Guides But Does Not Cause.

Atheist though I be, I’m going to stand up for the idea of the omniscient God who gives guidance here. God, being omniscient, will know where His guidance will be effective and where it will be ignored, or ineffective for some other reason. He will therefore give His guidance where He knows it will...

Re: Bill O'Reilly"s downfall

... Name one. Just one. One will do. The ethos of silence and cover-up by the BBC and the police force in the 70's and the 80's.

Re: Bill O'Reilly"s downfall

... Because we sure can't jail any "mascularchies." I have to worry that the "culture of abuse" explanation is actually too morally weak to change anything. We'll never find this "culture," and we'll never change what needs to be changed if we can't. Well IC might not ...

Re: Bill O'Reilly"s downfall

... So what is your specific example of such a culture? Sure. Fux News where presumably it was fairly common knowledge that the CEO and the top anchorman were letches who used their power and positions to try and get sex and take liberties with staff, in O'Reillys case to the tune of 13 million dol...

Re: Bill O'Reilly"s downfall

Second, institutionally, the Fox News culture is one of the sexual harassment of women, I'm not a "Fox" fan, but I can't see that this is true. If you identify one person there who is doing something bad, like harassing people, that hardly justifies the word "culture". How do yo...

Re: The Failure of Linear Logic?
