    “The scene in which all characters sit in a circle on the floor in the library and tell stories about why they were in detention was not scripted. John Hughes told them all to ad-lib.”

    So a high ranking official within the Australian branch of the Salvation Army has gone on radio saying that the Christian belief (and official belief of the salvos) is that gays should be put to death. Something to keep in mind at the next red shield door knock appeal.

  10. I think it’s healthy to have a sense of humor, but I also adamantly oppose dehumanizing any group of people for the sake of a joke. I thought this put it pretty well, but I’d also add that casually belittling adoption is similarly damaging and inappropriate (“it’s okay, he’s adopted”, etc.).

    All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

  13. Is there any point in us being in Afghanistan?
    We wouldn’t have asked in 1985: “Is there any point in the Russians being in Afghanistan?” The fact is that the invasion was a crime. Then comes the question: “Is there any point in continuing?” But that presupposes legitimacy. Putting aside questions of morality and legality and simply asking about the goals of the US government is a very narrow consideration

    Do you vote?
    I often do, without much enthusiasm. In the US, there is basically one party - the business party. It has two factions, called Democrats and Republicans, which are somewhat different but carry out variations on the same policies. By and large, I am opposed to those policies. As is most of the population.

    Are we all doomed?
    If there was an observer on Mars, they would probably be amazed that we have survived this long. There are two problems for our species’ survival - nuclear war and environmental catastrophe - and we’re hurtling towards them. Knowingly. This hypothetical Martian would probably conclude that human beings were an evolutionary error.

     
  14. I find it particularly offensive when people assume that because I’m an atheist I don’t have a moral code, or that I “don’t believe in anything”. This isn’t what I live by, but I think it shows definitively that in the absence of religion we can still strive to be better human beings.
