Re: You The Man
That's odd ... a few years ago, someone on this site called me a "c..t" (except he used the full spelling) and no one batted an eyelid.

The IQ of your average socialist can perhaps be judged by the fact that Jim Jones (1931-78), of "Jonestown" fame, was far and away the most intelligent socialist who ever lived.

Re: You The Man
The IQ of your average socialist
Which edition of the Socialist IQ Database are you using? Right there in the preface of the latest edition it clearly says that IQ is not a valid measure of intellect or knowledge, as I'm sure you are aware.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

All those options are not 100%. Rapists and abusers rarely use birth control. Shame and fear will keep many girls and women from addressing it in a timely manner. Ectopic pregnancies will always exist. Complications and diseases will always exist that make abortion the safest and most effective manner of saving or preserving the life of the mother.
I'm not against abortion, especially in hard cases, like those.
Oh yeah, none of your damn business what a woman chooses to do with her own body.
That's far too binary a statement, it IS our business what people do with their own bodies, that's why we try to intervene with suicides and have health and safety regulations. We also try to prevent people harming other people (and animals). And in abortion regulations we have laws for the stages that foetuses can be aborted. We recognise not just the rights of the women but also those of the unborn child.
We SHOULD be uncomfortable with the decisions we make about abortion. It's not black and white at all.

You're catholic, remember? You wouldn't know truth from a stale saltine and a cap full of grape juice.
But, you did ask, so ...
There is no truth in anything you mention in any message from Message 2875 back.

Uttering nonsense and mean-minded inanities seems a form of not telling the truth, so I'm including those as well, which is most of them:
Message 2869: The IQ of your average socialist can perhaps be judged by the fact that Jim Jones (1931-78), of "Jonestown" fame, was far and away the most intelligent socialist who ever lived.
Message 2868: That's odd ... a few years ago, someone on this site called me a "c..t" (except he used the full spelling) and no one batted an eyelid.
You're referring to Message 795 where you made denigrating comments about feminism, called cultural Marxism the dominant culture in the west, and referred to the Loony Left. You grouped together those who support racial equality or feminism, those who live in Austin, Texas, and atheists, then called them all cultural Marxists.
If you check the Forum Guidelines you'll see no stipulation about language. The ugliest name calling isn't what's most profane, and in this contest I think you won.
More untruths:
Message 2860: Anyone who believes reality is confined to the parameters of modern science is an ignoramus of exceptional quality.
...
Hey, no kidding?! The mere mention of God sends you into an apoplectic fit of mouth-frothing rage and malevolence.

You're like a hate-speech-spewing human version of Pavlov's dog.
Message 2858: That fact that Sidis was a socialist proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that, far from being "the most intelligent person to ever live", he was an idiot.

A socialist - by defintion - has sh_t for brains.
Message 2838: ... a euphemism for a bunch of Loony Left atheists who typically hate the Catholic Church and love everything that is sleazy and unclean. We've got the same species of deceitful, left-wing trash down here in Australia.
Message 2825: Yes, you may well have a point - my IQ has been measured as less than 10 and I do have a fragile, eggshell mind.
Message 1285: You seem to have forgotten the alleged first life-form, which, according to atheist folklore, formed naturally from inanimate matter.
...
That's right - life can only come from life and intelligence can only come from intelligence.
Just a small selection.

Since you have admitted to having an IQ of 11 (I think you flatter yourself), you're not in any position to judge anybody else's IQ.
Dredge writes:

I doubt that you could have such complete data on every socialist who ever lived, so I can only conclude that you are lying.
And I asked for the dictionary from which you got the definition. Your reading comprehension is poor.

In Message 2869 when you said:

You could not possibly have that information.

you're not in any position to judge anybody else's IQ.

Your doubt is completely justified and your conclusion is almost certainly correct ... but I'm not willing to admit it bcoz my fabricated, fake "fact" is essential to my argument.
And I asked for the dictionary from which you got the definition. Your reading comprehension is poor.
Your assessment of my comprehension skills is more than fair.
I will get back to you later with that dictionary citation.
