Human Sacrifice: The Degeneration of a Ritual

The vatican (sic) and the catholic church (sic) ignore scientific research that shows

that if latex condoms are used properly they can prevent the transmission of HIV

and other diseases. They make prehistoric statements such as: “Morality is the

only prevention for AIDS...” and “Anyone who ignores the teachings of the

catholic church (sic) and contracts AIDS has only himself to blame.”... Certain

religious and spiritual practices in…

Since I have little time to post, my avatar has become response mechanism. It's my virtual mood ring. Although I kinda like the Twain image. It matches my global outlook and disposition best.

No remodeling lately. Although, I'd rather be swinging a hammer than arranging pixels.

As mentioned to Waldo, most of what i know about members here is from RBC1, though do recall your departure from SC. I thought you acquitted yourself well with the agnoiologist craft during those days. Some future scholar's paper, no doubt, will deal with the Cassandra role at imploding websites during the early internet age.

As mentioned, there's -- for me at any rate -- quite a wiff of lethargy over there, like they're not quite sure just yet who they're going to be. I suppose, however, that there are going to be some interesting developments there -- sociologically speaking -- as the new dynamic forms around and against the new commander in belief of all the free world and some of the other parts too. As the factions form, and willy nilly, off they go, again. And a good ride to them, too. It was interesting, i suppose, to see how that movie ended, but i haven't noticed much interest forming in me yet to grab a seat for the next one.

Excuse me....I just threw up on your new avatar.

I thought the conservatives were the ones calling Obama a fascist. It's hard to keep up these daze.
