Does this need to be written to be understood?
Could it really be that you don't think that it's already understood by
graduates of the world's worst "public schools" that someone isn't required
to post on the internet?
The only point was that Lance took more time to think up slurs than it would
have taken to explain what his specific objection was.
When asked if he objected to the notion that most Americans support "Making
public school facilities available after school hours for use by student
religious groups", he caved in. He couldn't even answer that simple yes or
no question, then lojbab comes along and proves that she doesn't even know
what the word "religious" means.
These are very serious shortcomings. It's ok to disagree with simple
dictionary definitions, but it's NOT ok that our schools may be teaching
that dictionary definitions are irrelevant. Or, worse, that what they
"feel" the word means is more accurate than what the dictionary says. Or,
worse, they don't even KNOW what the dictionary definiton is.
