Re: Calling All Liberal Race Baiters

SteveKlinko, I met your typical liberal race-bater. She said you missed the point entirely and would have no argument against it if you were to understand it. The whole Conspiracy Theory type of outrage over Police Racism and Brutality is a complete Paranoid Delusion perpetrated by Liberal/Media/Po...

Re: personhood

I would like some clarification, please. Flash & Henry: Can there be personhood without morality? IC, Belinda, Seeds: Can there be personhood without God? The morality thing is a side issue, although I believe this whole thing started in a ethics dispute about that and so perhaps the personhood thi...

Re: Calling All Liberal Race Baiters
