So, thanks!

Really? You can quote someone saying, "Hey, you're a child molester!" or "blah, blah, blah, you child molester."

Because i'd like to see that quote.

Of course, we don't have people calling others n***r or f*gg*t, or p**sy and getting away with it
Even in the Wild West days of the forum, where you could say that kinda shit without repercussions, no one did.

Given your forum persona becoming increasingly pro-right wing I gotta say the question levied at you is inappropriate. However you have aligned yourself with people who seem to think that molestation is a lesser evil than a terminated pregnancy
Octavious (1704 D)

@ brainbomb

In what sense? I have consistently said I am pro-choice. Consistently.
brainbomb (284 D)
16 Dec 17 UTC
Or rather that having the fundamental belief abortion may be a necessary evil.

Molestation is never acceptable and never necessary. There will never be any argument anyone can make for molesting people having a positive influence on society


Whereas even the staunchest pro-lifers slow down at the prospect of a young rape victim needing an abortion to terminate a life-threatening pregnancy. Granted thats not all pregnancies but laws are made to protect the heinous exceptions. Think about it.
Octavious (1704 D)

What exactly am I meant to be thinking about? I am anti molestation and a supporter of the UK abortion laws. Once again I have no idea what point you are making.

No use arguing with these clowns Croak & Oct.
They proved in the other thread that they cannot handle arguments they can't easily mock and subvert with some logical fallacy.
There's nothing TO think about. NO ONE in the other thread even halfway suggested that abortion is a bigger evil than molestation. BB literally pulled that out of thin air.
Ogion (4263 D)
16 Dec 17 UTC
Except, Octavious, I didn't call you a child molester, I associated your holier-than-thou gays-are-making-it-up-attitude with the well documented history of child abuse in Christian circles. So, except for that that superb failure of logic, you'd have a point.

Don't be silly Ogion.

I'm very much on your side of the political spectrum, but don't be silly.

If I said "Hey Ogion how much coke did you snort today?!?" it would not be completely illogical for you to assume I was accusing you of being a cocaine user.

You implied, quite heavily, that as a religious person Octavious was a potential child molester. I think that if you did not mean to imply that, you should at least apologise.

@Jamiet: Trump has apologized for that statement and it has widely been acknowledged to be locker room talk. Kind of gross but no where near as bad as Hillary calling people 'Super Predators' or her silencing and covering up for her husband's sexual abuse which was proven true.

Still I vote on the issues and Trump has/had much better positions then Hillary Clinton and (((((Roy Moore should have won on the issues not on some unproven allegations from 50 years ago)))). It's a travesty what happened and it needs to be fought. People deserve due process.

eh if you disagree with these people they just spew out some vile SJW rabble and disappear. They aren't interested in having a scientific discussion or any kind of intellectual discussion. We all know that the modern Left/Cultural Marxist/Marxist left are anti-science.

They refuse to admit that a human fetus becomes a human, duh.
They buy into a hoax AKA global warming
They reject a host of other scientific issues as well.

It's pointless to really try and debate the anti-science, modern left, unfortunately. Don't expect anything less @Brad.

-----


Basically this pivoted the conversation into a philosophical debate about doug being the inferior candidate for being pro choice. That WAS the pivot in the conversation. And then people began entertaining passionate arguments on whether abortion was right or wrong. The point was the guy molested people. Hes a sicko and a creep. This is a disgusting defense of this person. The sheer fact ND tried to change the subject implies to me he thinks doug's position on abortion is fundamentally worse than Roy Moore being a likely child molestor. He even goes as far as to use the lapse of time since alleged misconduct to justify it.

It doesnt matter how long ago it happened. Molestation is still a horrible disgusting act. It shouldnt be watered down. It shouldnt be ignored because of time lapse. Its sick. Hes clearly attempting to claim abortion is worse than molestation.

If you cant understand why this defense of moore is disgusting by ND then you dont belong in the category of rational thinking. Regardless of your political leanings. Victims should never be treated like liars. The current wave of people coming out with stories of abuse is unprecedented. Its hit all political sides, its hit celebs, its hit the rich and powerful. Trump had multiple women who were victims come forward describing his misconduct. Moore had caused life-long psychological problems to numerous victims. How in gods name can anyone with a shred of decency come out swining in his defense like that? You gotta be some rush limbaugh bitch to try making that defense
