So they donate some money to groups that are affiliated with anti-LGBT initiatives... The amount they donate is so insignificant to the fight for/against the LGBT community. And the $5 sandwich I buy is certainly not going to make a huge difference. Personally I don't go there because I do disagree with them, but whatever, let them do what they want with their money.

The true abomination is being closed on Sunday when I'm hungover and just want some good fried chicken...

We've got a republican led Senate. And the majority leader has come out saying unabashedly that he'll support and even collude with Trump's legal team regardless of the facts. The likelihood of Trump being removed from office from this impeachment is about just as likely as Trump saying sorry and resigning from office. Zero percent chance.

Yes. If someone votes for a politician whose sole platform is about killing off a minority, then YES that person is indirectly culpable for the end result. Should they necessarily be punished for it? Probably not (depending on level of involvement).

Hitler killing Jews and various other minorities is unequivocal to any form of abortion. This is a worrisome comparison as one example takes millions of people regardless of their character and tortures and kills them simply due to their religious affiliation. The other example is deeply personal. Abortions are performed every day on nonviable fetuses, women who have to decide between paying rent and having a baby, women who have been raped (even by their fathers, their brothers, etc). Shame on you for even thinking of comparing the two.

The only way this is an issue is if he is officially removed from office, by the Senate, after election season kicks off. This is unlikely given that the articles were just delivered and formal impeachment proceedings are about to start. Unlikely for them to last 10 months.

And that's beside the fact good ole Mitch is gonna defend his boi regardless of the facts and evidence... so big orange boi isn't even going to be removed at the end of the day. -_-

They're mutually exclusive. The key to being a truly moral person is the practice of empathy. Put yourself in someone else's shoes. You are much less likely to do wrong if you think in that way.

It's a bigoted statement to say "Muslims are homophobic", especially with no proof. You could, instead, use some definitive evidence to show how Islamic teachings preach against homosexual relationships. You could even use case studies or statistics to show hate crimes for Muslims against LGBT individuals. Basing your views off of a gut feeling isn't always the best idea.

I don't think the hatred against any one group of people is worse than the hatred against any other group.

So we have a law that says that conservatives cannot have an abortion and another law that says that liberals can have all the abortions they want.

Newsflash!! No one is forcing anyone to have an abortion! I know it's very difficult to believe, but it's true- if you don't want one because you're morally opposed to them, you don't have to have one!

Just because maximum security prisoners get to eat and take a dump doesn't mean they have any rights or live a comfortable life. They live a lot of their lives in solitude and the food they eat is miserably poor quality.

People who find themselves jobless and on the streets (they committed no petty crimes, let alone terrorism) can't afford most of those facilities.

Homelessness is a completely different debate. That being said, there are homeless shelters out there. I don't know the quality of them, but they exist. Not to mention the notion that some homeless people do commit petty crime (whether intention or not) and wind up getting the care they need in minimum security prisons.

"Raised in the Georgian Orthodox faith, Stalin became an atheist. His government promoted atheism through special atheistic education in schools, anti-religious propaganda, the anti-religious work of public institutions (Society of the Godless), discriminatory laws, and a terror campaign against religious believers. By the late 1930s, it had become dangerous to be publicly associated with religion.[99]

Stalin's role in the fortunes of the Russian Orthodox Church is complex. Continuous persecution in the 1930s resulted in its near-extinction as a public institution: by 1939, active parishes numbered in the low hundreds (down from 54,000 in 1917), many churches had been leveled, and tens of thousands of priests, monks and nuns were persecuted and killed. Over 100,000 were shot during the purges of 1937–1938.[100][101] During World War II, the Church was allowed a revival as a patriotic organization, and thousands of parishes were reactivated until a further round of suppression during Khrushchev's rule. The Russian Orthodox Church Synod's recognition of the Soviet government and of Stalin personally led to a schism with the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia.

Just days before Stalin's death, certain religious sects were outlawed and persecuted. Many religions popular in ethnic regions of the Soviet Union, including the Roman Catholic Church, Eastern Catholic Churches, Baptists, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism underwent ordeals similar to that which the Orthodox churches in other parts of the country suffered: thousands of monks were persecuted, and hundreds of churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, sacred monuments, monasteries and other religious buildings were razed. Stalin had a different policy outside the Soviet Union; he supported the Communist Uyghur Muslim separatists under Ehmetjan Qasim in the Ili Rebellion against the anti-Communist Republic of China regime. In addition to this, he supplied weapons to the Uyghur Ili army and Red Army support against Chinese forces, and helped them establish the Second East Turkestan Republic of which Islam was the official state religion."

My original point was moot anyway. I completely forgot about Stalin and Mao when I posted it and was proven wrong quickly and easily.
