“I see - you're ok with it having been done to you so you're find with millions of infant boys being mutilated without their consent.”

“Everyone believes in what they are fighting for.  The guys who flew into those buildings thought they were buying a ticket to paradise.  
Terrorism is about tactics.”

“I'll go along with that... but if you are fighting for freedom and recognition on your own dirt, to me, that's something special.”

“Circumcision does not impair a man's normal functioning, and is not intended to. Comparing it to female genital cutting is, quite simply, ludicrous.”

Lysdexic1 on Dec 9, 2013 at 10:15:11

“In fact it does. For example, an erect circumcised penis draws lubrication out of the vagina and causes painful sex if the act is prolonged. When a natural penis is inserted, the skin stays in place and the shaft moves under the skin, keeping the vaginal lubrication where it belongs.
Additionally, the fact that so many pleasure-producing nerve endings are destroyed cannot help but impair response.
Then of course there are the botched ones that we don't talk about.
Your assertion is silly on it's face.”

“"those whom think this practice is normal should be shunned from society"

You want the great majority of Egyptians to shun themselves? These kinds of traditions can be changed, but it is not easy. When such a large majority of the people in a country believe in something, outrage in nations that are thousands of miles away and light years removed, culturally, matter little. Certainly, insulting people who believe in what the members of their society almost uniformly believe is not going to change anything. It is people like the woman in this article, who wants change but does not view her neighbors and family as monsters, who will change things, if change is to be had.”

“None of which changes the fact that the RCC has never fully come to accept capitalism, and that underlying the Popes speech is a intellectual tradition that is pre modern and hostile to capitalism.”

“Limbaugh is wrong about the Marxism. The RCC critique of capitalism is based on thinking that is premodern. He is right, though, that the Popes thinking is inconsistent with our freedoms and our way of life. But this should surprise no one. The form of Christianity that most influenced our founding was Protestant, not Catholic.”

“It is a warped perspective that reduces the allure of beautiful women to "meat." A woman does not lose her other qualities when she takes her clothes off. And her body is as much a part of her as her intelligence or her sense of humor. The great majority of men know this. But some people, often viewing themselves as feminists, don't get it. Mostly because they don't want to.”

“I hope this  is not a double post.  Hate typing on this tablet.  Anyway, the RCC is as far from a fundamentalist church as you can get.  The RCC filters the Bible through over a thousand years of theological thinking .  It is , in fact, deeply hostile to the very premise of a fundamentalist church, which is that all one really needs is the Bible, which is open to anyone's understanding.   RCC opposition to gay marriage, for example, is based more on a theological  conception of what is "natural" than on a simple reading of the Old Testament.
The fundamentalist churches were, and are, a reaction against the RCC.  ”

“Whether or not you can control your desires you can control your behavior. It says something about our times that anyone can think that the fact that people have adulterous desires somehow means that monogamy is so difficult as to be practically impossible. Guess what? You can't have everything you want. Why this should be a difficult concept to anyone I do not understand.”

“Exactly, that I was thinking when I read that line. Whoever wrote it is just looking for an excuse to behave badly. If humans couldn't control their "desires" there would sadly be even more violence than there is now in the world. It would be bedlam.”

“ You treat the women as though they have no moral agency in the matter.  You infantilize them.  And you see every john as the equivalent of some cheating husband.  Neither party has the upper hand here.  The woman is selling something the man wants to buy.  They both have their reasons, which could be any of a hundred different things, arising from their particular circumstances.
If it should be illegal to buy it should be illegal to sell.”
