He actually thinks hes 'protesting' something here in the forums by being rude. Just looking for attention, or else he would have just let his post (which he evidently saved, maybe out of protest) just die off in cyberspace, I know I did.
Um, I participated in a discussion, admitted a mistake and actually came out with a somewhat changed point of view. Can you say the same?
And when people go worrying that other people might have their feelings hurt by being exposed to unwelcome opinions or information in a non-insulting and non-threatening fashion, yep, seems pretty post modernist, whether consciously or not. Maybe my definition is wrong, but if somebody tells me where and how, I'm willing to change it. Opinions should be tentative and open to new information.
Regarding the protest, sorry but yes, on issues I care about, gonna speak up. If someone requests information for a good shark fin recipe, gonna sound off. Someone spreading anti-vaccination propaganda - going to speak up. Don't go around searching for these things because time is limited, but yep. When they think something is wrong in society, people need to say so.
As far as this issue, people have given me further insight and seems there isn't so much to worry about with regard to the religious indoctrination of children here in the thankfully secular world. I'm thankful to them for it. But as for you, I think you just got a few buttons pushed and need to lash out a little. Luckily it's the internet, so no one's gonna get hurt.
