The argument for churches to have tax emeption while still expressing their views is not called "God" but is called "freedom of belief, association and of expression".
Nope, still not a good enough excuse for me.

You are struggling today aren't you? Abortion services account for less than 3% of Planned Parenthood activities, way less than cancer screening and prevention, STD prevention, and contraception.
I thought you were supposed to be good at science?

Lynchings of blacks also account for less than 3 percent of KKK activities. The rest of the time they just burn crosses and hold marches. So I giess they're OK by your book?

We are, luckily. Planned parenthood has never actually killed a baby, black or otherwise.

Have you considered that it is this sort of attitude that leads to escalation in the first place?

We won't start negotiating before the other side has corrected all their past injustices.

If you want to move on, you need leadership with more vision than that.
Now that you mention it, it's obvious. The Palestineans are to blame, their mere existence forces Israel on its path. Therefor they should accept all the injustices and brush over them.

Now, apply your "logic" to ordinary crime. Instead of reporting the crime the victim better forget about it and move on. And if he happens to do so, humbly accept the offer to mow his lawn he placed on the land he just stole from you.

As I said, ridiculous.

It's called reductio ad absurdum, but on second thoughts, science.

So what do the other 97% of KKK activities account for? I presume it's not cancer and infectious disease prevention.

Marching is good for health. And burning crosses keeps you warm. So it's all solid science really.

Much better than totally unscientific things such as giving food to the poor, which as you rightly say shouldn't be tax exempt.

You're having a bit of a 'mare today too, aren't you?
I understand; it's tough when your favourite gets a bit of a slapping. I can empathise, I do support the England cricket team, after all.

Please stop cherry picking and misconstructing.

That's not at all what i said, and you know it.

You're the one being ridiculous here.

If you want to have an honest debate, I'm very happy to debate you But if you're going to be silly about, be silly by yourself.

Okay, I will try to take a break and come back at some future point.

I think it will be interesting to watch the dynamics between Trump and the GOP after the tax cuts. I actually would like to see him to go after Republicans as well.

He'll need to reach across the aisle for infrastructure development projects. I would also like to see him open up access to capital for inner-city black businesses. Oh, and The Wall.

MAGA!

Neither did I say you did. But it does follow your logic, although I should have said to wait with reporting for an inderminate but long time instead of not reporting at all.

Nah, stick around.

I don't see Trump reaching across the aisle, he just doesn't seem to be that kind of a guy.

Unless he's trying to touch up a girl in the opposite seat of Trump Force One.
