Re: These "you" is the second person impersonal you. I don't mean you, I mean you. yeah.

It seems that he deleted the comments by accident, if you believe him. Of course, that doesn't address deleting the entire post later, which was an obvious CYA attempt.

I'm rather curious as to what an acceptable apology on his part would involve, because he obviously still believes the fundamental things he said, from his religious perspective. "I'm sorry I expressed my opinions, which I still think are valid, in an immoderate way, but I still hold them?" I think the disagreements are on such a profound level that even an annotation isn't going to satisfy anyone.

(Note: I certainly do not share his opinions in any way/shape/form, I just find the issues here interesting ones.)

I agree-- there can be no way to express an unremitting hatred of a large group of people in a way that would avoid angering that group.

We who are of reviled minorities have had generations of experience in keeping our opinions to ourselves-- helpless anger and outright hatred of the powerful bigots who rule our world.

So I do not feel as if I'm advocating censorship is suggesting that hatreds ofthis nature are best left unpromulgated-- supposing one cares about the public's opinion of oneself.
