realize that Ron Paul is one of those people who are opposed to abortion, do you not?
You seem very proud of the fact that you take the "far left" position on every social issue. Well bully for you! We're all very impressed! What you don't seem to realize is that having an opinion
isn't really worth a whole lot in and of itself, especially when you're unable to produce a fully-examined reasoning process that yielded that opinion, one that in turn could be used to persuade others of the same.
You believe what you believe because that is what you believe. Like I said, that's terrific, but what's disturbing is that you seem unwilling to grant the same degree of intellectual sovereignty to people who are religious.
And no, it doesn't help if you make smirky faces while talking about religion like Bill Maher did in that first video you posted.
"'This is what I believe.' Yeah, you believe it, and I'm gonna say why it's dumb."
Actually, that pretty well sums up this whole thread.
