Like I said, a critique by anyone is taken as an insult. Especially by me.
How do you expect to be taken seriously when you call people by your favorite pejoratives? You seem unable to tackle that critique directly, instead, just going into another pejorative laden tirade. That is the prime definition of strawman.
Have you noticed almost nobody here uses that ...[text shortened]... ke most people on two sides of an issue. THAT is my critique but to you that is the ULTIMATE insult.
First of all, the hateful troll Sonhouse has been running around many threads in
more than one forum, hurling insults and lies at me. It's his continuing obsession,
The abusive troll Sonhouse has a long record of wild ranting on many subjects,
typically ignoring many of the facts, when he makes ludicrously exaggerated (at best),
if not outright lying, 'critiques' of the targets of his obsessed hatred.
These targets include religion, particularly Islam, an popular target in this forum.
As a coward, Sonhouse tends to be less critical of Christianity (I suspect that, given
his abysmal reading comprehension, Sonhouse will 'read' 'less critical' as 'uncritical' ).
As an atheist, I would concur that organized religion has caused much harm, but
Sonhouse's far from balanced in his view of religion.
My impression is that many, if not most, people perceive Sonhouse as an obsessed
old man who loves to rant and rave on many subjects. At best, Sonhouse may be
a 'useful idiot' as an ally of convenience.
Again, I could not care less (as Sonhouse wrongly insists that I should) about my
popularity in a narrow forum dominated by largely racist or sexist white men.
In a much more diverse wider world, Sonhouse's fanatical US jingoism and racism
(which includes his apparent approval of US near genocide in the Philippines) would
mark him--as I have done--as an extremely hateful (if not demented) racist pathological liar.
To sum up, Sonhouse's obstinate opinions are nearly always ignorant, misinformed,
or worthless except on some narrow technical subjects. He 'knows' almost nothing about history.
P.S. Thanks for the instant 'thumbs down' within a few seconds after I posted this
(before any edit). That troll could NOT likely even have read my complete post.
