How cretinous (and, as US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia pointed out
- proudly! - the other day, cretin comes from the French word for
Christian; Scalia's point was that religious people who believe in miracles
[like him] must be willing to take the barbs of secular intellectuals, and
be a fool for Christ; here we have fools for Stalin). Imperialism? Fascism?
Who said anything about no regard about the other person involved in a
fuck? Last time I checked, lots of people enjoyed fucking, in twos, threes,
and more - lots of them women even! Sometimes even women fucking other
women and with both (or more) of them enjoying it. How much your average
Stalinist seems to have in common with your average Bible-thumper!
