    Thorockmorton seems pretty neutral to me on homosexuality.

    It seems that it’s nothing more than a case of a child stomping their feet and saying you’re no Christian, you don’t hate enough! And then passing it around the classroom to whoever will repeat it.

    Hmmm…. There is an “Americans for Truth Hour” on radio station WYLL 1160AM Chicago (Midnight-Eastern; 11PM-Central, etc.). He’s having Glatze on and from the tenor of thee post it sounds like PLaB and Glatze intend to try to rip Dr Throckmorton a new one, Christian-wise.

    For those interested in more nut-job antics, visit http://www.cbc.ca/arts/story/2010/03/23/ottawa-coulter-speech.html to learn about Ann Coulters nonsense here in Canada. The ‘comments’ section is most interesting…. most Canadians, like myself, are questioning why she was invited in the first place……..

    …and just as a way of providing some context – normally, the ‘comments’ on stories posted by the CBC range, on average at around 200 with ‘agrees or disagrees’ ranging in the 500′s. On this story, the third posted so far, comments submitted are 1734 with 1880 agreeing with “huh? – what a nut-job!”. I particularly liked the comment submitted that said:

    “Can anyone tell me why a democratically elected G7 member MP like George Galloway isn’t allowed to speak at the University of Ottawa, while an entertainer of questionable academic merit like Ann Coultier is?

    I don’t think freedom of speech should enter into the debate as to whether or not she should be allowed to speak in the university. She can talk all she wants in a dark closet by her self, but she’s out of place in an academic forum.

    Here in Canada we have limits to free speech. You can’t yell “fire” in a crowded theatre, and you can’t incite hatred. Both rules were intended to protect the common good.

    Tollerance doesn’t mean tollerating other people’s intollerance.”

    Uh-huh Timothy. That’s what you get for having former friends like that. 2005 is, like, a forgettable eternity ago isn’t it. The blood must really be in the water this time, to coin a phrase.

    Sorry Timothy, but is there a reason you neglected to mention the previous, ergh, ‘working relationship’ that Throckmorton and LaBarbera had? I think it has some bearing on PP’s current vindictiveness. There is no fury like a woman scorned. Etc.

    All things considered, I’m still finding it difficult to conjure up much sympathy. Understanding, yes. Sympathy, no. That may that time.

    How the wheel turns… slowly, but it grinds very very fine.

    Oh, Priya, I loved that! I’m still laughing as I type this.

    What exactly are people in Ottawa afraid of from Ann Coulter? Let the crazy bitch talk and everyone laugh AT her. Laugh her off the stage. This just gives her more ammo, and she’s right to use it..

    Just like Columbia and Ahmadenijad..

    I’m glad that we showed her her bigotry is not welcome in Canada.
