ISIS released a new video today, in which 21 Coptic Christians are beheaded on the beach. Don't judge, you miserable bigots. Because Christians, and stuff. The insufferable Jesus freaks probably had it coming.
If the immolation of the Jordanian pilot isn't an occasion to "get on our high horse" as the President so contemptuously lectured us, then nothing is. Every society and culture has conduct in its past that it regrets in the here and now. If past transgression is the calculus for a present day evaluation, then every human being alive is a miscreant and there are no judgments to be made about anybody. I'll wager that the liberal commenters here are all too eager to lambaste the Catholic church for trying to sweep some of its contemporary problems under the rug. Watching those same commenters (starting with the President) contort themselves in the most disingenuous attempts to rationalize Islam's current savagery by drawing parallels to the Crusades of a millennium ago is disgusting beyond belief. It is, in my opinion, the very portrait of cowardice. Only cowards refuse to call evil by its name.
For those who wonder about the seemingly random removal of comments here, my understanding is that the Pilot ignores this forum until one of our resident crybabies flags a remark that makes them cry, & deletion is more or less automatic. Hence the nuking of my admonishment to the President that the medieval Christian threat is under control. Heaven forbid that we should be permitted to ridicule the asinine remarks of politicians. Especially when they've been canonized by the left.
Hey Pilot - in the interest of full disclosure, why not identify the self appointed hall monitors? Unless you don't believe we're entitled to know who you've empowered as censors.
The vermin who immolated Muath Al-Kassasbeh are savage, evil, inhuman scum. Waiting to see if this comment survives our resident hall monitors.

We solved a messy problem in our neighborhood once upon a time, and you're butt hurt about it for some reason or other. I am clearly not qualified to advise you. Perhaps you should call your mommy and have a good cry.
Does freedom of speech make you uncomfortable, George?
The dog at large issue is a problem. Or used to be; I haven't lived in town in about a decade. When I was still in the city limits, I and other dog owners in the neighborhood took matters into our own hands. We detained dogs on the loose for retrieval by Animal Control, and insisted that the owner be fined (we learned that 1st-time offenders were frequently not being penalized). If AC was unavailable, we often delivered the animal ourselves to Critter Court. We were pretty militant about it, and the dog at large problem - along with the unwanted deposits – evaporated in our neighborhood.
The book was an amazing read. I'm hoping the film does it justice.
