Shove it, Sink.

Between that and your request to 'stuff the Kleenex', I think those unresolved issues you still have from potty-training are interfering with your ability to post anything rational.

Or even interesting, for that matter.

Typical. You seem to think you have some authority around here, telling posters to leave and "get lost."

Flies get fly-swatters. You're a fly.

Nope. YOU go pound sand.

And you accomplished exactly nothing, unless making yourself look foolish was your goal.

Again - I ask you to refute it. I'm always willing to learn, and can change my worldview given the right information.

What the article says is not always what is observed in real life among those who claim to be Christian Reconstructionists. Perhaps that's the problem.

I've read the thread, and you've done nothing but whine, throughout.

Indeed, if your goal was to have more people think you're a jackass now than before you began posting to this thread, you have been a smashing success.

Go pound sand.

Your anal fixation is disrupting your cognitive function.

LOL! What does any of that have to do with Reconstructionism?

You, like Polycarp, have a personal vendetta against CP. It is a violation of FR's guidelines to drag your animus from thread to thread.

Like I said, you've done nothing but bitch, and continue to, even after Da Boss has told YOU to get lost!

Regardless of any presumed etymology, your anal fixation is interfering with your cognitive function.

The primary evidence for this is that your arguments are crap.

Wishful thinking. CP has been discredited, and this article repeatedly revealed for what it is. That is success.

And CP's basic premise has been derailed and forgotten. That is success.

You've chosen your alliances very poorly, sink.

Da Boss has told YOU

Jim Rob owns this site, but God is Da Boss.

You, like CP, have forgotten that in your anti-Christian orgy.

Jim Rob's ONLY power over me is to pull my posts or ban me from this site. He may do so at any time. BFD. His ownership and control of this site has absolutely NOTHING to do with defining right versus wrong, Truth versus deception, so his OPINION doesn't mean a thing.

You risk your eternal salvation here, Sink.

I don't have any "alliances." CP and I disagree often, especially about Catholicism.

But, you've let others take on the article, while you've whined to mommy.

I wonder if they gave credit where credit is due or did they claim this was their orginal thought. Looks like they lifted their arguments, such as they were, whole cloth from the article.

You can't copyright an idea or even an argument. You can copyright the language you use to express an idea. The article you reference was copyrighted, but it's uncharitable to assume it was used without permission. Instead of alleging unlawful behavior, you should contact Chalcedon first to find out the facts.

If by 'flying' the thread you mean 'not responding to requests to substantiate contentions and support arguments, whining like a toddler and generally dodging all questions', you are quite correct.

I never saw it before it was posted in the Religion Forum. From the context and empty keyword and subject lines, I suspected it was originally posted to the News forum and banished to the Religion ghetto, regrettably.

I protested it being moved to the Religion Forum. It should not have been put here. It should have been put in the SBR or pulled.

Only a very small percentage of freepers visit this ghetto, so I guess itwas better hidden here than staying the news forum.

God works in mysterious ways.

You know, that itty bitty bit of condesion in your post is ever so cute, just like that sweetsie dismissive quality you had in your last post to me.

I already have the article. I wanted to see that motion, if one can call it that, to see if Moore's lawyers gave credit where credit is due. Now we can get into a long, boring discussion of copyright law, but Moore's lawyers used exact quotes from the article. I'd just like to see if they credited the original author and publication.

Amazing how they flock together. Based upon comments he personally made under his prior screen name, "One_Particular_Harbour," CP claims to be a nudist who enjoys porn and strip clubs. Wonder what he and his fellow birds here share in common?

If you're concerned that much about the distant future, maybe you should spend less time posting on Free Republic and more time having children. Teach them your viewpoint and tell to them to do the same with their children. In a few generations there could be thousands of Chancellor Palpatines to outvote those scary Reconstructionist homeschoolers.

Nicely put. After all, that's how I'm planning converting this country to my own values, and away from the Democrats, liberals, and atheists. Of course, it may take multiple generations, but I'm patient. The way I figure it, as long as they're practicing abortion-on-demand (and I'm not) I think my plan wins by default.

Political struggles are rarely won by default. They require eternal vigilance. We must all work to defend parent rights--including the right to educate one's own children according to one's own beliefs at home--from prying government busybodies.

Provided this defense is in place, then yes we win by demographics, just as the old Roman Empire was Christianized by births rather than conversions.

After all, the left doesn't really like mankind, so they certainly don't like children. That's why they have so few of them and the ones they do permit to leave the womb they promplty hand over to others to take care of while they go off to activists jobs to reshape the world. Of course, in so doing, they neglect the teachings of their intellectual masters, for wasn't it Stalin who told us, "The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world?"

Me? Well, it's too cold to be a nudist in Wisconsin. Don't do strip clubs--I get no thrill from watching another woman take off her clothes. And porn? Ditto.

I do like pro football, but living in Green Bay, that's not even an option. I enjoy sailing and fishing. Can't hunt since my shoulder injury about a decade ago, but I was a pretty good shot before that, I must say.

And you?

I still haven't heard your reponse to my suggestion...is it because the thought of a thousand Palpatines is a bit too much, even for you? =)

Catspaw, I'm quite sure that the quotes were used with both the knowledge and consent of the copyright holder.

The magazine or the author holds the copyright? The author is an associate prof at Liberty U's school of law, and Jerry Falwell spoke at Moore's rally, so I'm sure he gave his permission for Moore's lawyers to use the article. I do hope that they credited it properly because it wasn't their original work. The wording isn't exactly the norm for pleadings.

Oh, I'm at my kid limit, thats for certain - not a socialist in the bunch, either. Good American materialists, who like the notion that they live in a nation where their opportunities are boundless, that they can pursue any career they want, and aren't trapped by their gender as women are in unenlightened cultures and societies.

I wouldn't think y'all would understand that.
