“Obviously.
I was disagreeing with Mr. Tuttle on how traveling to the future would be impossible.
You would have understood my response to him if you had read his comment.”

“If time travel were possible, moving forward in time would cause you to simply vanish until your arrival date where you would reappear to a world that continued without you.”

“They were talking about people that travelled back here. We can't search facebook for events that haven't happened yet.”

“*cue fanfare*
A giant leap, I would say.
Total equality will happen eventually.

The rock is rolling too fast now. I don't think anything could stop it now.

Just let it roll. There's too much wasted money fighting it, and there could be so much money to gain by letting it all pan out completely.

Big businesses have children overseas work for poor wages in sweat shops, but when two people of the same gender want to get married, it's preposterous. Something is really screwy about that.
Congress will only follow whichever companies are deepest in their pockets anyways, right?”

“Doesn't sound like a church at all then, if what you say is true.
It sounds more like a non-exclusive club.

Even the Baha'i, with their envelopment of many beliefs still adhere to a singular ideal.”

“There need to be less counselors in school and more viable forms of reprimand for bullies.
I've broken my hand defending children with special needs from their attackers when I was in high school and that really seems to be the only way bullying stops these days.
Take away the paddling and the capability for teachers and school staff to punish children, take away rights of parents to punish their children in more effective way than grounding and taking their cell phones away, and crap like this happens.
I firmly believe that the threat of detention or suspension is too easy. You think children dislike these things? All that matters to a bully is to get in their victims' skin and make them do crap like this.
Children are cruel creatures and if the school system and parents aren't allowed to do anything, then it's up to the children to defend themselves.
Thing is, it's apparently politically incorrect to teach your children to fight back. News flash, people: if you can't teach your children to take control of the situation, you don't deserve to have a child, and children tend to take themselves away from you in this same fashion.

So do all your protests and PTA meetings. Until there are viable ways of removing the issue at it's source, it will be up to the children to even the field out.

If jerk kids don't learn young, they won't know any better as adults.”

“If a person feels no need to date another person because of a different bone and skin structure, then these people are terribly hypocritical.
One of these kids could end up disfigured because of an accident or act of stupidity and end up on the shelf like they are putting Jews.
This article goes to show how stupid educated people can be. Intelligence is obviously not a sign of maturity.”

“I think the whole thing is a stunt and offensive to anyone with a brain, frankly.
Each of us knows who we will and won't date for whatever reasons, and there is no need to broadcast it.”

“It's still considered a Christian system with a Christian point of view. It's that "Free Christianity" thing.
Thing is, regardless of what it's called, every system still adheres to it's foundation regardless of how much it supposedly changes.
I mean, unless my sources are incorrect, this Univeralist thing still has the "Christian" affix, which means regardless of what is said, Christianity is it's core.
Funny thing about Agnosticism, of which I am (in practicality) Agnostics tend to not agree nor disagree with any kind of belief; we tend to believe there may be something and may not, so we research all facets.
Joining a singular entity with such a history tends to lead a person in a singular direction instead of allowing one to find their own path, such as the organisation in this post.
It reminds me of the history of the Freemasons. Even though they are more publicly accepted these days, it does not negate the fact that they still practice things they had long ago.”

“It is not a church in the sense of teaching supernatural ideas, but we do value the seven principles, those help in keeping us united, even when we disagree with each other on God and other issues.”

“A few Unitarian Universalists still consider themselves Christian, but most nowadays don't. Some consider themselves Buddhist, some Jewish, some Wiccan, some agnostic, and some even atheist. Maybe a few consider themselves with other beliefs. I think a few consider themselves deist. It is a big tent religion, with a lot of variety of beliefs, but we generally like the seven principles, though some would like to amend them.”

“That's one out of a massive laundry list of offenders.
Though, I would assume that most people who do not have the faith of the church wouldn't join anyways.”

TomMartin on Dec 2, 2012 at 05:04:05

“The Unitarian Universalist Association has a list of seven principles, none of which mention God. So I, as an agnostic, had no trouble joining. Of course the principles are very different from the ones written at the time the Unitarian church and the Universalist church were founded a couple of centuries ago, when they still universally believed in God. But then all religions change.”

“I support this wholeheartedly.

I agree that people need a place to really study to find their belief instead of constantly being bombarded by zealots.
There are pros and cons to every system of belief, and it really helps when you can sit down with the same group of people and go through them all before you decide.

Can't do that at a church or a mosque. They all tell you the same garbage how they are right and everyone is wrong.

Before anyone makes any decision, one needs to really sit down in a neutral environment and look deeply into each possible religion before they choose.

We were given the ability to choose. It's fairly stupid to use that ability to choose to follow blindly.”

“In a Unitarian church you can join even if you don't believe in God. So not all churches are alike in this.”

“Funny how people don't differentiate between the people of a country and those who are from a country.
Thing is, if these kids aren't Native American, they technically shouldn't be talking smack.

“Yes, I have made the assumption, however it is fairly difficult to argue with numbers.
The book came out and brought it more into the general public.
More people get involved and more crimes in the relative area are going into the news.

I'm not saying that everyone in this situation is inexperienced, however one cannot argue the fact that more and more inexperienced people are getting involved and expecting something that just won't happen.

I don't mean to sound prudish, however. I am myself of college age, a fairly fresh 22. However, as said before, when the general public is introduced into something, there will be and are people who will attempt to get involved for the sole purpose of just doing it. It plants a seed in one's psyche and it's up to them ti deal with it.

However, it's painfully obvious that with the rise of abuse reports, that people really need to assume that people are inexperienced until they prove that they aren't for their own personal well-being.”

“Leave it to a popular book to not only spur interests in the subject, but potentially endanger people by allowing brand new, inexperienced participants together, as assumed because of said things.

This reminds me of the slew of children ramming into train depot walls in the UK after Happy Potter came out.

I've been associated with BDSM for 4 years now, and to be honest, a singular book's popularity is NO reason for someone to get into it.

Also, it's to be assumed that since there have been reported cases of abuse, there are no people of experience looking over activities. Safewords and such are only viable when they are enforced. People are in a very vulnerable situation, and anyone who abuses a person deserves a bit more than just someone throwing them out the door.

Overall, these people who get into BDSM because it's a popular subject really need not join any get-togethers, especially with any other inexperienced people.

If anyone is interested, I suggest you find someone with at least 4 years of active experience to teach you the safety rules, tool cleaning, etc. They are VERY important.”

“Just because the article brings up the book, that doesn't mean these students don't have the same kink impulses as anyone else who gets fulfillment out of BDSM.

And, would that be four years of once-a-month experience, or one year of daily, live-in experience, or two years of weekly experience, or three years of every-other-day?

Your comment is rife with assumptions.

I've been involved with BDSM---and especially rope bondage---for many years now, and I know many college-aged men who are intelligent and experienced enough to provide a safe and fulfilling experience. And I'm sure there are women of that age group with comparable levels of skill; I just don't know them personally.”
