@NRO@twitter.com what’s with the focus on the “sin” of homosexuality? strange how bakers, florists etc aren’t denying services to adulterers, divorced couples, those who engage in premarital sex etc. Cherry picking orthodox morality looks suspiciously like bigotry.
@dredmorbius re https://plus.google.com/+TreyHarris/posts/haZrvwVkidc -- I do indeed find this interesting, and I wish I had time to read it properly (not to mention all the G+ comments)... but not today.
I did get my truth-mapper demo partly working again today, tho: https://iseeamess.com/wiki/Exhibits/debate
Cathy Young is so full of crap her lips probably turn brown during sexual arousal.

We knew this would be coming.
We're so unprepared for it.
We're more prepared than we were a year ago, but still.
Fecking moneylords. >.<

Currently having a fairly civil debate with someone who has bought into the idea that the US cutting taxes on big business helps the economy because it encourages more business to locate here.
Pretty sure this argument for trickle-down economics has been soundly refuted, but I'm looking for something more solid than what I've been able to come up with.
A good conversation about the changing perspective on atheism. Adapt or die!

How low the skeptic movement has sunk. Let's use hyperskepticism to dismiss the #metoo movement & defend convicted pedophiles!
toot.cat has been moved to its new home, and SSL should be fixed sometime in the next 24 hours. I'm getting experienced help with it because the cert setup isn't standard and I don't know nginx very well.
Just so everyone knows -- toot.cat's SSL cert expired this morning, making it difficult to connect to at all (the only activity I've seen there since then has been me (@woozle) and @Harena, whose Pale Moon I jimmied to allow her back in) and probably breaking federation as well.
Inquiries have been made. Will escalate further if no news by this evening (EST).

Oh hey, it's back.
