What does any of this have to do with the idea of teaching people not to be offended is better?

It shows that such an idea is already taught and no changes are necessary.

Are you so in the dark that you don't see what is happening everyday?

That is my question for you to answer.
I have backed up everything I've claimed.
You have not.

Any example we can look at to see if it has factual foundation or not? (about something that "shows what riVeRraT is trying to talk about in regards to people needing to not-be-offended over PC language")

Are you just asking me these questions because you are avoiding the topic and you are just trying to find something to nit-pick about that has nothing to do with the topic? It's really not hard to use google.

I'm asking you to show us some meat because you seem to be unable to do so.

You've brought up a few horrific ideas - but we all agree that they are terrible and should be fought against and don't seem to have much to do with PC language.
So I keep asking... do you have anything that actually backs up the point you're trying to make?

Or maybe you don't actually know what point you're trying to make?
Maybe you just want to yell out about this or that for a little and make yourself feel better?
I hope you got your frustrations out.

Re: No one?
Funny how one doesn't hear the Left condemning the beatings of right wingers by the misnamed Antifa if it's "illegal" according to them. Nobody stops them, even the police are in cahoots with them. I suspect there are plenty on the Left who applaud them.

Re: Respectful Offense
You are ignoring my one simple point: The written documents of Islam directly address the reader with commands to murder infidels. That does not exist in the Bible or in any other religion that I know of.

If you hear it said about one of the towns the Lord your God is giving you to live in that troublemakers have arisen among you and have led the people of their town astray, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods you have not known), then you must inquire, probe and investigate it thoroughly. And if it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done among you, you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. You must destroy it completely, both its people and its livestock.

Deuteronomy 12:13-15, Faith. And unlike the bits of the Qur'an that give you conniptions, that's not taken out of context.

It certainly IS taken out of context, you are utterly illiterate to think otherwise. That js part of the Law DIRECTED TO THE ANCIENT ISRAELITES AND NOT THE READER OF THE BIBLE Why can't you read, Mr. Genius? Same to all the usual suspects who gave you Cheers. You're all illiterate partisans, not an honest thought from any of you.

And besides, how many Christians do you know who have taken such a command from the Bible and shot up a crowd or drove into a crowd or did a suicide bombing as if commanded to do so?

Historically, lots of Christians have killed for Christianity.

Liar. If you mean Romanism they killed Christians, that institution is not Christian even if there are some poor deluded Christians who are still captive to it.

If fewer do so now it's because people don't believe so much any more --- no-one cares about usury any more, or thinks of giving all their money to the poor, or worries about voting for a man who has based his life on the Seven Deadly Sins rather than the Ten Commandments.

What are you talking about? WHO are you talking about? The Seven Deadly Sins are ROMAN CATHOLIC TRADITION, not Christianity. And who ever KILLED for "usury?" At least we didn't vote for the WOMAN who is an even bigger violator of everything truly Christian. And we voted for Trump's policies, not his personality. Your cheering section are as politically biased as you, not a shred of interest in truth.

The very good and the very bad of Christianity have alike drained out of society...

I agree that the Church is in bad shape these days, both cause and effect of the evil culture I'm afraid. But that's not Christianity as I use the term, I'm always talking about true Biblical doctrine, not people. People can be all degrees of deviant from the true doctrine, but the doctrine stands no matter what and that has not died away and never will no matter how far many Christians fall away from it..

... leaving only a gritty residue of scientific ignorance, spiritual pride, and homophobia.

Spoken like the usual Christianity-basher. I have hope that the Church will yet rise from its present miserable state.

Re: No one?
there is no right wing violence, but there is lots of left wing violence against MAGA people. And the Left needs to soundly denounce Antifa and take measures to eliminate them or I don't believe any of their claims to oppose them.

There certainly is, and one of the things Antifa does is protect people from it.

Re: No one?
There is no right wing violence?

You've lost it. One of the many news items when you Google "right wing violence'".

quote:
Attackers motivated by right-wing political ideologies in the US have committed dozens of shootings, bombings and other acts of violence over the past decade, far more than any other category of domestic extremism, according to a new study.

https://www.presstv.com/...ightwing-violence-Washington-Post

Too close to reality for you, of course.

Plenty of people have denounced antifa when appropriate, and when they break the law they are arrested. When they are not breaking the law, which is most of the time, they have First Amendment rights. Really grinds your gears, that Constitutional Rights stuff, amirite?

Antifa attacks people who are merely attending a lecture. They beat them up for merely attending a lecture. There is no such violence by the right wing and if you've offered any evidence it's behind a link and I'm not going there. Quote it. Not generalities, specifics.

There certainly is, and one of the things Antifa does is protect people from it.

That is a big fat lie and you can't name one such instance. Antifa always attacks people who are not committing any kind of violence whatever. They actually have the nerve to accuse people who merely have an opinion they disagree with of committing violence simply by holding their opinion, and I don't even think they need ahny proof of that if the person is of a race or class they attribute such views to -- and no more than that in their sick minds justifies their physical violence. They are dangerous nutcases and if you all agree with them about that you are the same kind of dangerous nutcases.
