Conservatives just can't resist the desire to control their neighbors' morality, with violence. Libertarians may disagree with someone's moral choices, but will never use violence against them.
@FTL_Ian You mean like using force to stop someone from robbing me? How about killing or hurting someone I love? Is that OK with you?
@HSTG huh? Of course it's okay to use violence to defend. You may have missed that I was referring to moral choices, like how to raise a family. If you're actually interested in learning more look up, Non-Aggression Principle.
@blackmore People who think sex is positive and those who believe it is negative should not live in the same society.
@blackmore if you want to commit violence against a parent for taking his son to a prostitute, the conversation is over. You're clearly a conservative.
@blackmore yep - I don't agree with it, but it's none of my business. I also don't believe violence should be used against the FLDS cult. If you want to rescue the kids you think are endangered by these behaviors, and they want to go with you - that's fine. But using violence against people for having different sexual preferences is not a reason to go to war. Some people think religion is harmful to kids, but they shouldn't get to use violence against religious parents either.
@blackmore you may think it's stupid, but there are many people who believe that. Do you think those people deserve to die?
@FTL_Ian @blackmore @HSTG Religious indoctrination is abusive, exploitative, and leads to long-lasting emotional and psychological scars, as well as reduced well-being, fewer options in life, chronic obsessive fear-based guilt and neuroticism, isolation, etc., etc. Ask me how I know... It's sick. I abhor violence but psychological coercion on a child is a form of violence too and it is sick.
