but of course there's nothing rational about this baker, so applying logic will leave you empty handed.”

“Why should they not just go to another vendor? For the same reason that blacks should not have just "gone to another hotel or restaurant" when they were refused service in the segregated south. When you say "just ignore the haters" you allow them to thrive and to continue their illegal discrimination. The people who won't stand for it are brave, and they are the people history will remember. Even when it's just about cake.”

“Why should they go to another baker?  Same question in reverse: why should they spend their hard earned money to benefit those who dislike them?  This is not an easy question with easy answers.

“I hope not too. But last time I was in Paris (2011) there were plenty of supermarkets in Paris.”

UnePetiteParisienne on Dec 6, 2013 at 04:07:20

“Depend on what you call a supermarket... maybe I should have said there are no LARGE supermarkets in Paris. There are small ones but in my book anything not really larger than my Paris flat is closer to a covenience store than an actual supermarket (which you can find mostly in suburbs in France).
We do have large department store (Galeries Lafayette, Pintemps) and this very specific concet that is Monoprix but otherwise, no, not in the city center and it's fine because we can continue going to our local real market with its good bakery, fruits&vegetable stalls, fromagerie etc...”

“And sadly that French way of life may not last. The supermarket is crowding out the small shops as the French want the convenience and lower costs, and fewer people have time to shop every day, with more women in the workforce. Some needed social changes were overdue in France, but in some less fortunate ways they are becoming more like us.”

Calentura on Dec 5, 2013 at 16:48:47

“We (French) actually create the "supermarket model". What you describe can be true in some lost places (where 60% of french people live) but not inside the Urban Areas. Poeple continue to leave in the center of the cities where their is no places for big supermarket wich are far in the suburbs. So, poeple use to buy general alimentation in the little shops or outside traditionnal markets between their metro stop and their flat.

Oh, and in many ways French and Americans are not so different (We remain two major democratic individualist western culture founded by a revolution that supported light century ideas).”

UnePetiteParisienne on Dec 5, 2013 at 16:01:57

“Hopefully not.
Don't get me wrong, we do have large supermarkets (not in Paris where I live though) but i) even large supermarkets in France tend not to sell too much crap as far as food goes and ii) many people (present company included) tend to use them for basics (anything from toilet paper to cereal, vinaiger or whatever) and still have their close local boulangerie, fromagerie, boucherie, poissonerie etc..”

“I agree, though it's natural to question what she knew about him since she knew him best and they lived in relative isolation. If shooting were the thing he excelled at then you can understand why she'd encourage the hobby. But you can do that at a range without bringing the guns home. A parent with a mentally ill or just emotionally unstable young adult living with them isn't wise to keep loaded guns in the house or make them available to the kid, that makes absolutely no sense. He tried but failed to buy his own guns. He used her guns to kill her and the children, there's no getting around that fact.”

“I agree with you rbud, in this particular case it doesn't even appear to be a church associated with any demoniation or having oversight over ordnation of this man, assuming he even was ordained or has a degree of any sort. The story does not say. It's not even clear what seminary he attended because there is more than one baptist seminary in Kentucky.
http://triblive.com/news/adminpage/5118908-74/teets-girl-police#axzz2lUbu5L4b
This is the local news account of this story, which has better details about the serious nature of this case. Pastors today know not to be alone behind closed doors with children, ever. For the protection of both.”

rbud on Nov 23, 2013 at 13:43:43

“In the Baptist church, local churches make decisions about ordination of ministers and licensing to preach (there is no license to pastor), neither of which is required to pastor a church. The seminary is a school holding to a particular discipline, in this case religion. Many people hold seminary degrees who are never ministers and many pastors do not have seminary degrees. In the Baptist church the local congregation is autonomous.

Thanks for the additional link.”

“If their crime involved a sexual assault of any kind, but especially one involving minors, then no that person should never have a position of authority of families and children. Most churches now do background checks even on volunteers, staff members should be very thoroughly checked out. Primarily churches want to be safe places, but they also face serious liability if their employee commits a crime of this nature, and they failed to do due diligence or supervision.”

“I don't disagree with you, but nothing you've written implicates the school, the subject of this thread. Teets was not in a position of authority at the school, was not an employee of the school. He was a student. Like any other student in any other school.”
