Re: The Random Political Cartoon Thread

My post was actually a so I have deleted it
- but in my opinion the cartoon shows more than a large shadow, it shows a shadow that extends from the east to west AKA The United States (North Korea is not provoking Canada or Cuba). It is something that can no longer be ignored or just let China deal with anymore.

Or ignorant about actual religious doctrine.

But when has that ever stopped the armchair experts?

Yeah, I agree that the vast majority of anti-religionists tend to be rather simplistic in their outlook.

Re: DVDTalk Politics & Religion Forum: Nuance is not a strong suit around here.

The comic is just a way to hide behind hate by using a ridiculous future scenario that will never come to be. Kind of like objecting to gay marriage because "I guess animals will be able to marry next?"

Re: The Random Political Cartoon Thread

I like how the jackbooted thugs in that cartoon are the people who want to take the statues down and not the side that is literally murdering people who dare to disagree with them.
