And there you go making really stupid posts again.

No one wants to shoot you but we do want to follow the Constitution, the Rule of Law, acknowledge that all humans within the jurisdiction of the US have basic rights and show empathy towards the needs of others.

Nobody is forcing you to live here. Saud Arabia is nice and not liberal.

Don't forget Jesus said compassion is for wimps. And he hated anyone not in His tribe; remember the parable of the Evil Samaritan.

Oops, you're right. Russia, then. Lots of Christians and about as right wing as you can get. Trump adores the place and its government.

Re: This is the response I wanted to give
Sad if people do things illegally and in spite of all the best effort to prevent the saddest outcome have to suffer for their illegal acts.

Which is not entirely unlike the Spanish Inquisition imprisoning Jews for secretly practicing their faith.

That was illegal on the part of these Jews.

But you don't see what the Spanish Inquisition did there as wrong, do you?

Because they were just punishing lawbreakers and such.

Right?

Who can fathom the devious mind of a Marxist?

Pretty sure you were projecting in the other thread when you claimed that if my posts were reviewed, we'd discover that I'm always trying to attach some kind of label to you. Turns out, you're the one who does that.

Re: This is the response I wanted to give
Just a matter of fact I must clear up: I'm always writing against the inquisition here because the Roman Church is not Christianity, and the main people they tortured and killed were Protestant-type Christians -- at the rate of something like fifty million in the 600 years of the General Inquisition, and another seventeen million Jews, Muslims and others. The Inquisition is similar to Islam in its zeal to exterminate anyone of a different point of view. Jews and Christians seem to be their main target too.

I disagree with most of the rest of what you said as well.

Re: This is the response I wanted to give
You didn't address anything I said. As usual.

The Spanish Inquisition was operating legally. The Jews who secretly practiced their faith -- lighting that menorah on Friday evenings with the windows and doors shut -- were acting illegally.

So you should have no problem with Spanish soldiers smashing down that door.

I know what you said and I consider it the usual trickster kind of argument and wasn't interested in it. Sorry.

Are you actually equating US immigration law to the Spanish Inquisition?

Not the laws at all. US Immigration laws are generally okay.

It is the implementation of the laws under the Trump Administration that amounts to ethnic cleansing.

Immigration Laws and Cheap Labor.

The crazy intuitive side of me says that Trump is more of an antichrist than he is Cyrus the Great. And as you know, I'm not extreme liberal nor conservative.

I'm liberal enough to support social welfare and conservative enough to make sure the whole planet doesn't get it.

My Union is doing well, but we fear Right To Work laws because research shows that the average wage drops in such states.

Corporate business backs Trump because Trump is anti-union. Fewer people will earn what they want.
