Actually, they can hear themselves but not the voices of rational people, for they have special filters on their ears which prevent anything other than bigotry from entering their ear canals. Same sort of filters for their vision. Makes it so much simpler than having to use their brains to THINK.

Some people are bigots, some people are crazy, & some people are hateful. Hutcherson appears to be all three.

Oh, joelmael, you know that you can’t be certain about anything on Wikipedia.
Based on experience, it seems many of us (not just Wikipedia) misunderstood the 8th Commandment. It’s an easy mistake to make, because so many of the others have “NOT” in them. However, apparently the TRUE wording, known only to the variety of the self-proclaimed Christians of NARTH, NOM, et al, is”
8. Thou SHALT bear false witness against thy neighbor whenever you think it serves your purpose.
Sheryl Carver commented on the blog post Florida lawmaker’s bill would make abortion a felony with a max of life in prison — for the doctor
I recall a phrase from long ago, which I believe is still true today:
“if men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.”
Sheryl Carver commented on the blog post Iowa town bans retired cop’s service dog – because it’s a pit mix
Common sense & rational thought are rare commodities in the general population, & seem practically non-existent among law-makers, at whatever level of government. Doesn’t matter if it’s LGBT humans or pit bull dogs.
“We don’t need no stinkin’ science/evidence/brains.” This attitude would be funny if the consequences for innocent beings weren’t so severe.
Sheryl Carver commented on the blog post Catholic Church is overstepping its bounds against marriage equality in Minnesota
I, too, left the RCC decades ago, when i was old enough to realize what a bunch of crapola they were teaching, & also learned enough history to know that even (especially?) the leaders had no right to claim the high moral ground. All this before the relatively recent public disclosure of the widespread abuse of children.
I decided at that time that as I had only 1 father, my dad, he was the ONLY one I should call “Father.” Nothing has changed my opinion on that.
Sheryl Carver commented on the blog post This Is What Children Will Learn About Gay History
Like the commenters above, I too had no idea that so many people I have read about were members of the LGBT community. I am white & bi, & decades ago when I was in Basic Training (USAF) there was a white sergeant who thought he’d be a smartass by asking me if I was related to George Washington Carver. I’m sure he was expecting me to get all upset by the very idea that I might be related to a black man. I replied along the lines of, “I could only wish!”
After watching the video, I now know that I AM related to him; we just don’t share close relatives.
Thank you for posting this link to LGBT history, Alvin.
Sheryl Carver commented on the blog post Completely f’d up: gay Republican on why he’d vote for…Rick Perry
So “GOP-hard” is better than “GOP-lite?” That’s like telling someone, “I don’t like your insults. I think I’ll go over to those gang-bangers & let them beat me up.”
