Kakumei replied to Sentient Biped's discussion Westboro Baptist Church Patriarch Fred Phelps Near Death
"I wonder what it's like to lie in your bed knowing that your life is ending and reflect on the fact that your big accomplishment in your 80+ years on the earth was to make a living out of publicly reveling in the death people who have done…"

Kakumei replied to matthew greenberg's discussion Kansas "Religious Liberty" bill
"I agree with booklover that it's instructive that Brewer appears to have vetoed the bill because of economics rather than rather than because of any particular desire to protect the civil rights of gay citizens. It think it's a good…"

Kakumei replied to Kalista Whitney's discussion Was there a particular event in your life that contributed to you becoming atheist?
"I guess I've always been an atheist, but it kind of solidified when Christianity was explained to me."

Kakumei replied to Carmelo Fragoso's discussion North Carolina school reportedly squashed students’ hopes for atheist club
"Apparently the school has reversed its position and decided to allow the students to establish their club. While the change of heart could have come from some genuine reflection and soul searching on the part of the school administration I think…"

Kakumei commented on kent l thompson's blog post Am i racist?
"Isn't it a pretty established Christian concept that lying in the service of God or for a "higher" good can be acceptable and even necessary? Obviously this can be true outside of a religious context as well. But the religious seem to…"

Kakumei replied to Dr. Allan H. Clark's discussion Cruz's Trick on Republican Leaders
"I think Sen. Cruz is the greatest. I can't fault his performance up to now and I hope he doesn't let up. There are few things in politics that are more pleasing than watching your opposition tear itself apart."

Kakumei commented on Anthony Jordan's blog post What Would Be the Nature and Qualities of a Universe Designed By A Perfect Being ?
"I wasn't offended at all. There was nothing in anything you said that I would be offended by. The fact is that the atmosphere here is light-years away from what I'm used to. The civility and good manners are a little disconcerting. The…"

Kakumei commented on Anthony Jordan's blog post What Would Be the Nature and Qualities of a Universe Designed By A Perfect Being ?
"I have two questions here. One,is whether or not a hypothetical perfect being could objectively recognize its own perfection. The second is whether or not God himself ever claimed to be perfect. In my admittedly sketchy perusal of the Bible it seems…"

Pat commented on Kakumei's blog post The Defective Cardinal
"I wonder how the 'ole cardinal would do with Hansen's Disease (leprosy). The bible says the sure cure is to kill a dove and wash the walls of the house with its blood. So much for modern anti-biotics. Here's another. When doing…"

"Riiiiiight, like this overloaded planet needs even more couples being fruitful and multiplying and multiplying and multiplying. Even straight and bi folks in opposite-gender couplings -- including an overwhelming majority of Roman Catholics! -- make…"

Kakumei commented on Anthony Jordan's blog post What Would Be the Nature and Qualities of a Universe Designed By A Perfect Being ?
"Perfection is a matter of faith. Not even the god of the Christians can say with certainty that something is perfect. Christians can believe as a matter of faith that their god and his creation are perfect, but if their god is going to be honest he…"

Kakumei replied to Sentient Biped's discussion Some Provocative Thoughts from Hemant Mehta
"Thanks for posting this. I admire Mehta a lot. He's a much better blogger than I am. He's more thoughtful, a lot nicer (The Friendly Atheist) and he appears to be far more grounded and mature. While I don't agree with him all the time…"

Loren Miller commented on Kakumei's blog post The Defective Cardinal
"If this schmuck wants to declare that homosexuality is "fixable," he better be prepared with treatments which have been vetted and peer-reviewed, with demonstrable and repeatable results ... which of course, he doesn't have.  If…"

The Defective Cardinal

It didn't take long for newly-minted Spanish cardinal Fernando Aguilar, who will officially receive his red cap from the famously liberal and gay friendly Pope Francis next month, to weigh in on homosexuality. His Eminence tells us that gays are defective. Specifically, we are defective in the way in which we manifest our sexuality. The defect in question is that same-sex sex does not result in babies.Somehow, "defective" does seem to sound marginally better than "disordered", which is how the…See More

Kakumei replied to Sentient Biped's discussion I would love to see these billboards
"I love these billboards. I'm sure that they won't have any effect on committed believers except maybe to annoy them, which in my opinion is in itself reason enough for putting them up. With any luck though, they will also spark little a…"
