@JK "What is the state if not a political philosophy backed up by de jure and de facto power? Every major religion has some mystical shit behind it, and most encourage the use of force to kill other people for offenses other than murder."

I don't see how arguing that the state is a political philosophy somehow necessitates that we should not have our own independent philosophy. I know of absolutely no one who believes that their country is perfect. We believe that our country gets things wrong - therefore, if we believe that the state is a philosophy embodied, it is either a not entirely correct philosophy or it is incorrectly embodied. Not to mention the countless atrocities committed by countries (including our own). "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." If enough people in the right time at the right place had held their countries to a higher standard, what parts of history could we have avoided?

As to most religions encouraging death, I don't think this is true in the modern world. The Catholic Church condemns execution for any crime, and that makes up the majority of all Christians by itself. I'm less familiar with other Christian denominations and religions, but even the strictest evangelicals I have met have not advocated execution for anything other than murder. Maybe my bubble is too small, but that just doesn't match my experience.

@Octavious - If it isn't a white religion church, then local authorities have blocked allowing their using properties on some of these grounds. Courts have had to decide if those were legitimate concerns over being used to discriminate against Muslims and others in violation of freedom of religion.

In Arizona, the Satanic church has become very active in going after this type of hypocrisy by demanding the right to give the invocation at legislative openings and in school activity groups.

@ Random

I'm not up to speed with American terminology and don't want to resort to assumptions. What is a white religion church?

The Satanic church... are they a bunch of jokers like the Jedi, but with more sex and political activism, or are they brainwashed deluded idiots like Scientologists and Mormons

A white religion church is one from white Europe and North America like Catholics and the various Protestant denominations. As opposed to Musilim, Hindi, and
African religions.

The Satanic church, at least in this case are more political activism in that they are going after politicians promoting Christian religion in government and schools by taking advantage of loopholes in the law. They are forcing the politicians to go on record and specifically explain what is allowed and showing hypocrisy.

My one friend from Nigeria goes to a protestant church that's almost entirely African American.
Is that a white religion church?

Actually, Catholicism has seen a huge shift in demographics. Although the research I found only gave region and not ethnicity, it was still quite interesting. Now, only 24% of Catholics live in Europe and 8% live in North America, with Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia-Pacific make up 39%, 16% and 12% respectively.

Poetry opportunities..?
There used to be great organizations that worked through my school for poetry in youth, but now that I actually have an appreciation for poetry it seems like there aren't as many opportunities to perform or compete with poems.
Is anyone aware of prominent high school poetry organizations?

Is this game getting less popular?
I remember using this site years ago and I felt I could always find games to join, or if I made a game it would fill up in a couple of days at most.

Is there another site that people are using to play? It still seems like this one is the best at least from my quick google.

Must See Movie Reccomendations
So I like movies a lot and one of my goals in life is to watch every movie that is worth watching. I've seen most of AFIs top 100 and I have a to-watch list that is 168 films and counting. As such, I was curious if anyone here has some must-see movies that I may not know about.

Why no love for Sum of Squares scoring?
Personally, I'm not a big fan of Draw Size scoring, because it rewards the power that hung on with one dot the same as the 17 SC power that was a hair away from the solo.

What I've noticed is that almost every new game is Draw Size Scoring. Is that just because it's the default option or are players here just not fond of it.
