      See, now there you go. That's funny!
      That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

            I know.

            BTW we seem to be turning this into the generic racism thread which isn't quite fair... to racism. Racism is WAY more than just a bunch of wanna-be jarhead f-ckwits with tin badges. So I have started a generic Racism thread for non-cop flavored bigotry.

              There are the occasional nuggets of information that I learn, or the chuckle I get. My post wasn't a demand for change by anyone as much as it was an observation in the context of a discussion about missing posters. Admittedly, I know if no one who has quit posting here because of the grim tenor of the place.

              I do think it's funny though that you, a poster is who is quite capable of posting that I'm wrong about something, didn't respond by telling me I was wrong, just suggested that I leave.
              Oh, you can still leave. Won't miss you.
              What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                      No chance I’d leave, notwithstanding the general grim nature of Cafe, or how boring it’s become.
                      That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                        Unless it is your job I don't understand why you'd continue to partake in something you find to be both grim and boring. Hell, the boring alone would seem to be enough to say adios.

                          As someone who joined this board as a born and raised Republican, I found it incredibly uninteresting to join the political threads. I didn't know enough about my position to defend it. It was just what I was raised on in western Minnesota and thought was a continuation of what was moral and right when I went to UND. I remember taking the position that a lesbian basketball player (that I was attracted to) was doing the same as committing murder in God's eyes. I look back on that as the low point in my Christianity.

                          It took years of having close friends who are gay to realize they are more important than any hateful feelings I was raised to have.

                          But continuing to read these threads, combined with life experiences has led to me being a registered Democrat. People change and I doubt Hovey or Rube will change their minds, but occasionally people will choose love over hate and for fellow Christians chose the new Testament over the old.

                            Just out of curiosity, what exactly should I "change my mind" about?

                              I would. Hovey brings a lot to this board, IMO. And he maintains a level of civility that cannot be written off as passive-aggressive.

                                Agreed. Hovey is snarky but he's not a dick. I kinda hope I am at about the same level of civility. He's certainly no saint but other than Ralph none of us are.
