Great link. Definitely some ideas for people to challenge themselves to objectively (ie. critically)consider. Some generalization directed at both camps, but if challenging yourself to acknowledge the similarities instead of how to justify "That's not me" some real insight to be gained. Good find.

I just looked at the video that soulra posted...wow...I had to shut it off...I could not watch the whole thing.

If my kids logged on and saw that...I would be making a few phone calls.

If you ever put something like on here again, you should be totally banned.

I had no respect for you before, and now think you need a lot of help.

Actually, I do find it surprising, seeing as religious indoctrination probably wasn't a factor, and how many kids would make a choice that involves giving up sleeping in on Sundays? I had a best friend who was atheist, both his parents were as well... funny thing is that his sister became a Hare Krishna. I find a lot of kids even end up driving the same make of vehicle as their parents, so again, I find it surprising as most kids probably assume their parents know the right choices to make... until they hit their teens of course... then they somehow know it all. :127:

Listen you little mouth piece...YOU posted it on a family site with no warning after biotching about parkinsaon rec...
How the he!! do you know my 8 year old wasn't standing next to me? Or my other 11 year old didn't clck on the site on his own.
You, are pathetic, and deeply disturbed.

YOU can take YOUR opinions and jamn them where the sun don't shine, as people are a little tired of your BS!

Either way I look at it...you need help...

Links to potentially shocking or offensive material are acceptable in the context of a mature discussion, however you must issue a warning with the link in your message.

Just in case anybody missed this in the rules.
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

Um, yeah, whatever you say. Let me guess, you invert it. Spoil the child, spare the rod. Nice way of reinterpreting something that you would find unacceptable in your holy book into something more palatable. I haven't seen that one before....nope not ever.
