Sep 4, 2015 LML commented on The Federalist: Baptists Aren't Christians.
Dan, Dan, Dan. Once again you demonstrate your misunderstanding of religious liberty. The 1st Amendment was intended to prevent the kind of religious persecution that took place in Europe. You know, where the "real Christians" (whichever denomination happened to be "real" in that given country at that time) burnt the "heretics" (again, this varied depending on time and place) who dared to call themselves "Christians." You obviously fail to understand that Baptists are HERETICS, not REAL CHRISTIANS. So, because of our proud tradition of religious liberty, Kim Davis will refrain from burning Baptists, Catholics, and other heretics at the stake for their abomination before God.

@1 I was not on Ashley Madison. I would think, however, that individuals who were involved and don't want to draw attention to themselves would be more likely to share confidential information with a reporter from an established new organizations than with an advice columnist. No offense to Dan, but there is a solid tradition (and legal precedent) of journalists maintaining the confidentiality of their sources. Also, I am not sure what a judge would say if Dan tried to invoke confidentiality of sources--but I suspect that it would not work because Dan would not fit the definition of a journalist.

And, of course, no atheist, agnostic, or other non-Christian was EVER forced to read Christian literature in college (and high school) English classes.

Dan, Dan, Dan. Always missing the RELEVANT question: What would Jesus do?
Apr 23, 2015 LML commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: A Medievalist Schools Dan on Medieval Attitudes Toward Sex.
To say that medieval religious leaders were hypocrites who kept brothels does not indicate that they were all that different from today's religious extremists. ISIS and similar extremist groups rape women and take "war brides," for example. George Rekkers and others of his ilk preach anti-gay Christianity while hiring male prostitutes. Sounds like today's fundies have a lot in common with their medieval counterparts to me. Both now and then, the rules were meant to be applied to everyone else, not them.

"Elder sex expert"?? You're taking sex advice from Mormons?
Jun 28, 2014 LML commented on SL Letters of the Day: Response Required.
"Look at it this way: If foreskins made sex more difficult, R.R., evolutionary forces would've selected against foreskins and they would've disappeared long before we appeared."

Dan, Dan, Dan. this is just yet more evidence that GOD CREATED MAN with the FORESKIN precisely to make sex more difficult and less pleasurable. ;)

I haven't heard anything about excommunicating gun nuts like Jared Michael Padget, the Mormon leader/Troutdale school shooter.

Our patriarchic culture is very relevant, but we must remember that BOTH men and women participate in reinforcing this culture. Women who slut-shame other women? Part of the problem. Women who virgin shame men? Also part of the problem of reinforcing the patriarchic culture.
