Personal Quotes (2)

It's okay for Christians throughout centuries to exterminate races and for their priests to rape little kids throughout decades, but trying to give the people the power to think and be individual, that's evil?
My view on Democrats is that they're fascists disguised as liberals, or liberal moderates. You're not allowed to say anything they don't agree with. You're not allowed to do anything. Also the whole Obama, "I can kill anybody with a drone with no trial" is kind of disturbing. I'm surprised that more people who are supposedly OK with them, because he's Obama. It's bullshit.
