    Commercial Racism

    Yup, agree totally, even though this was manslaughter. But yes, agree. The kid should have just walked away.

    I’m generally against doxxing, but the best way to avoid it? Act like a decent person. No one gets doxed if all they say is, “Good morning, how may I help you?”

    That you personally had to deal with this flat out breaks my heart.

    It looks like the church has taken the “talk about love and acceptance and tolerance” (your words, not mine) path. They probably won’t switch lanes from that anytime soon. This presents a challenge to LDS traditionalists. Will they continue to “follow the prophet/church teachings” or not? It’s also interesting for LDS liberals-this is their moment too. Will they stay in the church as the church becomes more inclusive or will they jump onto the next social cause and leave?

    US reactions?

    Right. As a child we tend to think there are good and bad choices, and there are. You grow up a lot when you realize that in some circumstances, there are bad, and very bad choices, and you are forced to make one of them.

    Do you believe him? I’m highly skeptical of government in general, but the first priority of a government should be to protect innocent people from getting infected with a potentially deadly virus.

    @scottyg To be fair, as a young man in Catholic school we were lectured to quite frequently that we were sinful, lecherous, lazy, immature...while women were virtuous, mannerly, pure, wonderful...it got old. It also got a little silly, if I’m being honest. We’d make jokes about it, even the girls would. The staff and church leadership at the school was too (Naive? Clueless? Politically correct? Stupid?) to see that girls would tease one another into eating disorders and also pressure the boys for sexual activity. No, I have no idea how LDS teach their kids simply because I’m not a parent. But, if you constantly tell me how bad I am don’t be shocked when I act that way. After all, I’m just doing what you said and what you expect. So....

    Exactly. Everyone loves to show off how “Christian” they are, then when you ask them to turn the other cheek or to pray for those that persecute you, well, those verses are misunderstood anyway.

    Dude! My wife and I stumbled across a vintage toy expo at our local mall last week. It’s such a cool hobby!

    If ANY university did that yes, we’d* call them out. Simply because it’s not a “university” thing. The problem is with the experiment itself and those trying to downplay or belittle how cruel it was. So no, it’s not personal. Don’t take it as such. If UNH did it, I’d lead the charge there and demand a public apology. Same with UF. * I say “we”, but obviously I speak only for myself.

    Depression - What are we to do?

    I’m sorry you had to deal with that. It’s a heartbreaking and frankly, unchristian thing to say to someone. Shows a chilling lack of empathy.
