thank you FlyersFan
were all very obvious to me from the beginning
Some facts are subjective - and relative - relative to the past and relative to the present
Or do you seriously contend that the life of a man living in our distant past can be judged by today's standards of decency?
A 1576 law making it a felony to "unlawfully and carnally know and abuse any woman child under the age of 10 years" was generally interpreted as
creating more severe punishments when girls were under 10 years old while retaining the lesser punishment for acts with 10- and 11-year-old girls.
Jurist Sir Matthew Hale argued that the age of consent applied to 10- and 11-year-old girls, but most of England's North American colonies adopted the
younger age. A small group of Italian and German states that introduced an age of consent in the 16th century also employed 12 years.
Is this a fact? Or is it not a fact because it was the thought process of our guys? Or will you say it doesn't count because that was then and this
is now? Or will you say it doesn't count because all you really want to say is that you can hurl facts at anybody you choose and they shouldn't
respond to them as if they're insults?
They are only facts after all
Would you say the same thing to Christians? What was the age of consent for the Jews living in the time of Jesus? Does it matter?
It's not that I don't understand what you're saying - I just don't see it the way you do
You can spell it out as often as you like
Hate is hate is hate
I don't care how factual it is - or which side it's coming from
But as far as this thread is concerned - your target made no threats - he only stated what is likely to happen
And that he doesn't like for his Prophet to be insulted
The rest of what he said I could explain to you - but as you didn't care to take it as he intended - I don't imagine my take on it will matter much to
anyone at all
