"It just goes to show how out of touch he is with middle class families. Because among my circle, I don't know of a single two-parent household where one parent does all the cooking, cleaning, grocery-shopping, etc. As it is becoming…"
"Believe me, I'm talking about that line! My mom and I text each other a lot during debates and that line immediately prompted me to scream about what a sexist pig Romney isl Did it ever occur to him that he might have some male employees who…"
"Riffing on something Sentient said, I was at a death penalty conference last month (being a death penalty defense attorney), and one of the plenary sessions was focused on race and the death penalty.
We're all aware that there is racism in the…"
"Honestly, book lover, I wouldn't respond to you again as you seem like a judgmental person. But you don't get to tell me who I can and can't respond to. Sheesh, I'm starting to think this kid is lucky that you won't talk to…"
"Booklover, I'm sorry you found so much offense in my comment. You did, though, convey here, at least, that it was egotistical of him to think he has all the answers and that you found no more value in talking to him as a result. And that much…"
"I have to say, I'm a little put off by the tenor of the comments toward this 17 yo. Is it somehow inherently egotistical to disagree with people, even people who are older and more experienced? And is it somehow against the Atheist handbook to…"
"My hometown paper is the same way. Every day they have a bible quote on the editorial page.
The favorite seems to be:

"So glad you saw through that nonsense before doing serious harm to yourself. Honestly, how people can believe what they have to believe to put people through that gay "therapy" is beyond me. How can they not see the real harm they're…"
"It's not that he ever claimed to be an atheist, but that in reality he was such a catholic in name only type. In 4+ years, he never once mentioned god. It just wasn't a factor in his life and never posed a problem for us in any way. About…"
"I hear ya on the not dating theists. The last guy I dated (who totally crushed me, a crushing from which I don't think I'll ever fully recover) made no place in his life for belief in god, but I swear, I think my statement that I…"
"I have no idea why I'm single. I haven't had a date since August. Prior to that, I'd had about 5 dates in 18 months and they were all total duds. Just today, yet another friend suggested that this is somehow my fault. So who knows…"
