    What have you ever said that you wouldn't say that about?


    No, it's much wider than that and I've noted it prior with you. It's a movement.


    I'm not sure if it's that you can't get it, or that you just don't want to. Either way, it's not complicated.


    No one would read you, from the moment you entered this conversation, and believe for a moment that this exchange could be about that. You already goofed that chance up when you decided to blame me for your conduct and banning, mistakenly as it turns out.


    It takes an effort for some of us.


    Not if you understood it, no. What I actually said was the sort of person who said that about your son is the sort of person who uses retard aimed at those without a mental challenge, tying both together in their mind to offer the lowest insult they can. Pond scum.


    Then you're a sad excuse for a person, with or without the connection that should humanize you but for some reason doesn't.


    I don't use or imply it. I can't speak for Tooley, but I'd be surprised if you could quote him doing that.


    Sod? Absolutely. He uses faith to separate and harm people. He lies routinely to manipulate the unstable and gullible. He uses retard and "find Christ" for the same reason. A very bad fellow.


    He's not your friend. He's simply happy to have someone share in his obsession and hostility. He thinks your work based salvation is contrary to scripture. It probably doesn't really matter to him. Certainly it doesn't matter as much as you continuing this with me at the moment. And that should, but likely won't wake you.

    Your peculiar read-in on the "girls" comment was off the mark as well. It's a long standing comment I've made about sod and a couple of others who will gather to talk about me or make threads about me. Not many people, but a determined and twisted group. Listening in is like reading the diary of 15 year old girls talking about an ex. So I mostly don't.

    I also don't respect men or women for their sex. I respect people for their character and the quality of their reason.
    Nothing you said here was true, right, or helpful.
    Oh how I love the Word of God!

    Do not just read the word do it.

    you are entitled to give consent, by virtue of being the parent of a mentally handicapped child

    still puzzling over why town thinks that he is entitled to give or withhold consent

    seems kinda retarded to me

    and more than a little revealing

    "your son and people like him"

    @God's Truth - are there any people like your son, or do you believe your son is an individual? I suspect you know other handicapped children, or adults, who are more profoundly disabled than your son, and some who are less profoundly disabled

    If you don't mind my saying so, I think you have a good heart and maybe why I was never offended by you using the word retarded. We might not have the exact same beliefs about the gospel, but you helped me out like a good Samaritan when I needed it. Thanks.

    If you weren't offended by his use you're really no different in that regard, so why would you be offended?

    We might not have the exact same beliefs about the gospel
    If by that you mean he rejects your works for salvation, assuming he cares (certainly neither of you appear to prioritize it above coming together to go after me...which is an interesting consideration.

    Well, you have your priorities.

    Right. Like her son. People with varying degrees of mental disability.

    @God's Truth - are there any people like your son, or do you believe your son is an individual?
    That's a false dichotomy. Everyone can be an individual and still be alike in any number of meaningful ways.

    I suspect you know other handicapped children, or adults, who are more profoundly disabled than your son, and some who are less profoundly disabled
    Let's just hope she owns a dictionary that has the definition of "like" in it. You don't appear to...so maybe she won't.

    If that was true you wouldn't substitute a string of declarations for reasoned rebuttal.

    Or maybe you're a sock. I've never seen two actual people with a rift of that consequence in religious terms, one they pretend to be meaningful to them, cozy up and ignore it like you this...a sock or you're just using religion the way he does, only he's better at it so far.

    You're entitled to hand out unsupportable declarations in lieu of argument supported by fact, after a similar fashion.

    of course, in your case it's not a matter of cognitive impairment, it's more a lack of understanding of or willingness to adhere to moral values - like an autistic you find it difficult to recognize social norms

    See Sod. See Sod try to cobble something that has nothing to do with what was actually said or why.

    Again:

    Sod tried to trot out a false dichotomy and is now in search of the next distortion.

    But the beginning was this::

    Those are mostly the sort of people who use "retard". Pond scum trying to take what they believe to be as low a shot as can be given. Because when they call someone without a mental disability "retard" it only has strength by connection to your son and people like him. They're insulting both at the same moment.
    In a way, GT is worse than you on the point, sod, assuming GT is actually someone else. Because she claims to have a child with a severe mental handicap and uses and even defends your usage of the term. Between that and abandoning the thing she claimed as God's Truth in a near missionary frenzy of activity on the other site, before waving hand at it here to hold yours, well, she's either as rudderless as you, is in fact you, or has a substantive problem with reasoning.

    it's not surprising that you don't recognize your disability, or are unwilling to acknowledge it. Very few psychopaths believe themselves to be ill.
