Thanks for the link mmurray I wasn't familiar with the group either. As your link shows, the group is too extreme even for the Catholic church. I'd bet that on both sides these are just kids who want to play baseball. It's sad that the lunatic fringe, even for the RCC, is forcing their delusional hatred, anger and medieval ideas on children.

If others aren't familiar with the group please follow the the link the comment above.

I hope that this is an experience that the children never forget.

Repeating text fixed.

Yes, bad editing on the part of the admin posting the article (me).

I was paying more attention to the html tags than the text and accidentally pasted parts of it twice.

Thanks Miranda. When I saw the LRA connection I was reminded of Rush Limbaugh's defense of them.

Comment 99 by Mee Peestevone For some reason I can only get to page 1,2, and4 of this thread. Page 3 will not load since last night.since last night.

I've been trying to reproduce the problem and have been working with one of the moderators. Initially I could not get it to not work. All pages were displaying fine when I used Chrome. It also worked initially using Safari as well - it wasn't working in Safari for the moderator I was working with. It finally started not displaying page 3 but I couldn't see a pattern to what was breaking. When I sent the direct link to page 3 to the moderator it did work on their machine.

But it's now started to not display page 3 in both Safari and Chrome on my Mac.

Try to access the page 3 comments directly with the url below and let me know if it's working for you or not.

http://richarddawkins.net/discussions/644449-race-re-debunked/comments?page=3

Is anyone else having a problem displaying page 3 of the comments?
