Go to: Romney: Actually, I Kind of Pay 50% Tax

Lapin Diabolique's Avatar Jump to comment 1 by Lapin Diabolique

This seems quite reasonable. People who make their money sitting by the pool with their laptop, excuse me, through investments, should pay no tax at all, since they make such vital contributions to their communities. /sarcasm.

Go to: Americans: Undecided About God?

Lapin Diabolique's Avatar Jump to comment 1 by Lapin Diabolique

"Nones don’t get hung up on whether a religion is “true” or not, and instead subscribe to William James’s maxim that “truth is what works.” If a certain spiritual practice makes us better people — more loving, less angry — then it is necessarily good, and by extension “true.”"

Sure, don't get hung up on insignificant details about whether the thoughts rattling around your head actually map on to reality, as long as you get that warm feeling in your tummy and smile like a sanctimonious blissninny.

What a jackass!

Go to: Women & Islam: The rise and rise of the convert

Lapin Diabolique's Avatar Jump to comment 1 by Lapin Diabolique

"....many of the British women who adopt Islam say they have a daily struggle to assimilate their new beliefs within a wider culture..."

Yes, that could be due to the fact that their new beliefs are idiotic, retrograde and flagrantly misogynistic.

I guess some people like to be treated badly, the safety of the jail cell and all that.

All righty then! That article has convinced me never to do LSD.

Thanks, though, Samuel, for this peek into your past.

It was groovy, man.

Go to: Is Christian morality psychopathic?

Lapin Diabolique's Avatar Jump to comment 31 by Lapin Diabolique

I never imagined myself feeling a quiver of excitement for anything male, but I have to admit that I do love seeing Sam's raised right eyebrow when he tells the audience at Notre Dame " I hate to break it to you, but Christianity is a cult of human sacrifice".

What a beautiful mind. What astonishing composure and poise. What an absolute nightmare to people with with invisible friends.

President Harris with his trusted VP C. Hitchens. Ah, one can only dream.
