Thanks for posting that. Id never knew it existed. Such a horrible period in our history.. Americans torturing and murdering Americans in the name of
Your sheer level of hatred has clouded your already ill equiped[sic] mind. If you took the time to read the article, it would become
self evident* that the witch-hunt took place in Germany.
The only comment I see approaching hateful between the two comments, is yours. Though the OP might be about a German incident, it happened in the US
And to the Christian haters I say this: Witch Hunting has it's origins in Pagan Rome(where witches where burned at the stake). The type of
witchcraft talked about in the Bible would be Canaanite Religion. To those ignorant of History, the Canaanites believed in human
sacrafice[sic](hence why God told the Israelite's[sic] to slaughter them all, but the Israelite's[sic] did spare the Canaanites;
within 20 years the Canaanites began human sacrificing again.+ The Death Penalty was public stoning and it required witnesses, not a confession like
the RomanPagan[sic] method of witch-hunting).
Trying to make excuses, or pass the buck, does not change the fact that it was people claiming to be Christian, but not acting in a Christian manner,
the perpetrated these crimes. That is history, stating such is not hateful, trying to pass the buck, make excuses, or deny it happened is
Also, Witch-Hunting has more in common with Domestic Violence in America then it does with religious intolerance. As most of the people who
accused others of witch-craft(women), did so for revenge(similar to the cases of women in Nazi occupied Europe using the SS to get rid of people they
didn't like via false testimony).
As such a majority of the victims where other women, but a quarter or so of the victims were men.
This fact still does not justify, or excuse what happened, or change where it happened
This is why I associate more with right wingers, because you lefties are intellectual light weights who just preform constant circle jerks,
instead of actually READING BOOKS! You know they have in libraries, heck even some malls sell them, and you can even download them onto computers and
these fancy new devices called Tablet computers.
You do realize that the reason you believe this is because you probably don't know any better right?
Are Liberals Smarter Than Conservatives?
Study: Are Liberals Smarter Than Conservatives?
Nevertheless, liberals are on to something when they question the IQ not of the conservative politicians themselves, but of some of the voters they
represent. A certain bloc of the conservative electorate may very well be less intelligent than its liberal counterpart. Lazar Stankov, a visiting
professor at Singapore’s National Institute of Education, published “Conservatism and Cognitive Ability” earlier this year in the peer-reviewed
journal Intelligence. Here is a quote from the article’s abstract:
Conservatism and cognitive ability are negatively correlated … At the individual level of analysis, conservatism scores correlate negatively
with SAT, vocabulary, and analogy test scores. At the national level of analysis, conservatism scores correlate negatively with measures of education
… and performance on mathematics and reading assessments.
Provocative, yes. But two important caveats are needed. First, by “conservatism” Stankov does not necessarily mean people who favor free market
economics. He has in mind a kind of traditionalism probably best described as social conservatism:
The Conservative syndrome describes a person who attaches particular importance to the respect of tradition, humility, devoutness and
moderation; as well as to obedience, self-discipline and politeness, social order, family, and national security; and has a sense of belonging to and
a pride in a group with which he or she identifies. A Conservative person also subscribes to conventional religious beliefs and accepts the mystical,
including paranormal, experiences.
Most radical "Christians" tend to be far right, mainly because of their belief structure, and dare I say, level of intelligence. This does not mean
all people that have a far right political stripe are radical "Christians" or all radical "Christians" are far right, but many are.

IT is self evident that he was probably referring to it happening in the US as well, rather than he assumed this story was about the US.
