  •  Baptists are just as crazy (0+ / 0-)

    My wife's family left the Baptist church when they called her a witch and devil worshiper for dancing around a camp fire at 13.  No, she wasn't at all forced to stop dancing when they grabbed her arm so hard they almost broke it.  No, that's ignorant, they were simply encouraging her to "choose" to stop dancing.

    Did that woman really choose not to wear shorts?  Or was she told by every male in her family that she would burn in hell if she didn't obey?

    When I see on a 95 degree day in Chicago a Muslim family out walking, with Dad and son in front in shorts, and Mom and daughter trudging behind, heads bent down, in full black burkas....  Yeah, I'm sure that 13 year old daughter made a fully informed "choice".

    Don't try to excuse one crazy religion by citing another.

      and the women so far as I know never had a hand laid on them.

      You're talking to an (American) Baptist. I suggest you consider your choice of words more carefully in the future, as I am not insane so far as I can tell.

      Economics is a social *science*. Can we base future economic decisions on math?
