or maybe the people of the state shouldnt be so ignorant. It was the writers choice to create the episode and if someone in rural Alabama doesnt like it too bad. It is censorship no matter how you spin it. They're not showing the episode in Alabama, and if you don't like it too bad. Why doenst NBC ...

Except in the case of an Ecumenical Council , in which case the ruling is final. But those are only called for truly major issues; not every little social problem. In that respect, we are less autistic than our estranged Catholic cousins. The last of which was held in 1871 which was a failure and i...

Natural law is a logical basis for opposition to homosexuality. Granted, it makes it very difficult to be only opposed to homosexuality, but it is a logical basis, if often applied inconsistently. No it is really not. Homosexuality is not unnatural. And even if it is that proves nothings as natural...

Honestly, if it's supposed to be a religious-cultural state, then why would we want people who don't want to be part of our religious-cultural complex to live there, aside from maybe the odd middleman minority or guest worker. Yes, which is why you have the right to leave your country if you prefer...

1. "Sex should be connected to the reproductive function and not be intrinsically sterile" is technically a logical basis for opposing homosexuality. 2. Have you ever considered that biology reflects morality to at least some extent or the other? 1. No it's not and let''s not lie and pret...

We should not have stolen land that did not belong to us in the first place. I have no complaints about that land being stolen from my mother's country of origin to be honest. Texas was close to seceding even without large-scale Anglo immigration given how terrible Santa Ana was. And, of course, in...

Which one? The first one or the Napoleonic one?

There actually isn't a difference anymore. The Napoleonic emperor was childless, so he adopted the heirs of the first emperor, who are now both the Napoleonic and the legitimist claimants.

As long as Texas is an autonomous region that doesn't have to follow Mexico's gun laws... Or Mexico's laughably atrocious protection of property rights. That being said, Mexico's immigration laws would be pretty swanky to adopt. I mean, if we have the regional autonomy to have our own gun laws, we ...

No, as in the majority of Mexicans believe that the Southwest is theirs. You really think integration is on their to-do list? It's been noted by many scholars that they are assimilating far more slowly than any other immigrant group since the nation's founding. Not exactly sure that is a bad thing....

We've discussed a few facets of culture, nationalism, and the human experience on the RWDT, including subjects as scattered as music, art, history, language, and identity, but I thought it might be nice to broaden the field a bit by broaching a subject that normally isn't foremost in our minds - un...
