Re: Dawkins College

"Regardless of who owns it, I don't quite get the controversy. The only objection seems to be that it is wrong to spend money on one's own education.

Re: Islamists advertise Islamic Cultural Exhibition on Newstalk

"I hope you are not saying that be against islam is racist?" No I'm not saying that opposing Islam is wrong but opposing Muslims is. Opposing anyone because of their beliefs is wrong, whether those beliefs are nonsense or not. I love the implicate threat in the way you worded that by the way. "I als...

Dawkins College

I haven't seen any thread on this. Richard Dawkins' 18 grand a year University in England. To see what everyone thinks of the idea.

Re: Islamists advertise Islamic Cultural Exhibition on Newstalk

Re: David Norris for Irish President

I wish Norris would do more to defend himself. IMO if you want to run for President, the people have every right to know about your views on various topics including age of consent laws.
