Re: “Will Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott come to conscience on Kavanaugh?

No need in trying to persuade this individual with facts and evidence. Or the innocent until proven guilty tag. Face facts, he and his ilk will support Progressives and their cause regardless of the obvious facts directly in their collective, group think faces. Once Conservatives learn this, and begin to fight, really fight, in the voting booth and in the streets, these cowards will ve vanquished very quickly. All bark and no bite.

Jeremy,
You are a disgrace to your church. You should hope that you are not accused of something bad because you would be guilty as charged .... not after the facts. The Circular Church should excuse you from further participation.

Re: “Will Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott come to conscience on Kavanaugh?

Convicted of the crime before he has had a fair hearing! REALLY??? How about if I said a black man sexually assaulted me and therefore all black men are rapists. Innocent until proven guilty is what this country was founded on. None of us in the public has even heard this Dr Ford speak or get a look in her eyes. I have looked women Drs. In the eye as an RN and told them they were making a mistake and the look on their face said it all. Ever seen guilt written all over a childs face?

Re: “Will Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott come to conscience on Kavanaugh?

To piggyback on your reference to Baldwin; who isolated men from women? Take a close look if you dare. I'll give you a hint; it was not your usual whipping post of evil old white men. It is a sexual free-for-all environment.The sexual revolution declared that the traditional restraints on the male libido norms of male chivalry and gentlemanliness and of female modesty and prudencewere patriarchal and oppressive. Men were told to stop protecting women and putting them on a pedestal. Males and females were assumed to desire easy sex with equal fervor, and demanded to be able to walk away from a one-night stand with equal complacency. With regard to students, adults were expected to remain nonjudgmental and as far out of the picture as possible-because the sexual conduct of their children was no longer any of their business. The results were not pretty: the male libido, free to act as boorishly as it wanted; females getting drunk to reduce their innate sexual inhibitions, unprotected by any default assumptions against casual premarital sex. Whether a 17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh took advantage of this putative sexual liberation, many other teenagers have, and in so doing, merely followed the new script for sexual relations. Feminism has brought this situation upon us, where it was once assumed that when men were asking women the question about sex, the presumption was always 'no' unless the woman says yes, the situation feminism has given us is the answer is 'yes' and its up to women to come up with a good reason for saying no. There's your answer to the isolation. That said, what has happened to innocence presumed until proven guilty? Perhaps its not a matter of 'insecure white men' rallying around one of their own, but a matter of law. Remember the law? Innocent until proven guilty? Would you want to be accused of something so despicable and have all of your means of defending yourself taken away? How does one disprove a negative? Ever tried that? Have you made just as angry calls in regards to Korrey Booker or Keith Ellison? Closer to home, how about Archie Parnell, who in the 70's beat up his wife? Where was the angry outrage for that? Maybe it has nothing to do with with sexual assault at all, maybe it has nothing to do with being white, but has to do with politics and having the big letter "D" next to the candidate's name. Perhaps this outrageous smear of a man who has better credentials than many of the people already on the supreme court has nothing to do with these allegations at all. The fear is that the SCOTUS will once again interpret the Constitution and the Bill of Rights rather than legislate from the bench. Dianne Feinstein had the information about Ms. Ford well before the Senate hearing, she was obligated to share it with the other members of the Judiciary committee, but instead she sat on it waiting to see if any of the other accusations against Kavanaugh stuck, the race card didn't work, the anti-Roe v. Wade card didn't work, so finally she had to go nuclear. The whole game plan is to delay the confirmation until the mid-term elections. As a man of religion, will you pray for the truth to prevail? And even if you see Judge Kavanaugh as your enemy, will you pray for him and his family as as scripture commands us? Will you pray for his family who are being despicably mistreated in the wake of all of this?

Pharisees were religious people too -- they also had a thing for crucifying people without proof of guilt.

Nice role models you got there, Jeremy!!!

At least y'all Democrats are trying to lynch a white guy for a change!

Re: “We can make a safer city for transgender Charlestonians

Thank you. My son was not transgender, but he was a cute little gay boy who enjoyed sometimes wearing my powder and lipstick. Oh and he loved a good wig. He died at age 18, so who knows what the future might have held.

First my son's boyfriend killed himself at age 20, then a year-and-a-half later my son and only child died of a drug overdose and a broken heart. So I know how fragile these lives are. Thank you for coming forward about this important and very personal subject. RIP Nick and Wade

Re: “We can make a safer city for transgender Charlestonians

We live our lives constantly wondering where the next transphobic attack will occur. Don't think for a minute that we do not see the stares and whispers as we shop or walk down the street. People may think we do not notice but we do. And many do not even care if we notice. To them we are a joke to be laughed at. Even in places we once thought of as safe we now have to be ever vigilant.

Andy they stopped calling it "Civics" when you were in Middle School. You're showing your irrelevance every column you write.

Re: “UNC protests present debate of law versus morality

Am I missing something here. Wasn't it the hateful rhetoric that accompanied the statue that was the real issue? Essentially the Confederacy, and all vestiges of it, should have been dissolved when the war ended. The rebellion was defeated. Or was it?

Apparently it lived on in the minds of many who came after it. And lives on today. This is a real danger to the stability of society when it is used to divide its citizens. The Union totally failed the people so many died to free. It had no definitive plan to assimilate them and essentially threw them under the bus during reconstruction. Recently, the City of Charleston apologized for slavery. It did not seem to think an apology was due for segregation. That in many was was just as bad.

America still has a long way to go to atone for its centuries long oppression of minorities, and especially African Americans. At the same time it needs to protect the rights of the vast majority of European Americans who really had nothing to do with the matter. Reparation might be a good place to start. Genetic gentrification is not a realistic approach to elimination the cultural frictions we face today. There simply will never be enough people buying into it as it is really a perverse form of social engineering.

Re: “UNC protests present debate of law versus morality

OK, then have a war memorial to all the dead on both sides in the civil war. But that particular war memorial on the university campus was raised in the name of racism. Anyway, Germany sure does not have statues of civilian and military leaders of WWII. So let's take down the statues of the civilian and military leaders of the Confederacy.
And as far as the Japanese flag is concerned, it is the traditional flag of Japan, long before Japan invaded China. The US flag is almost identical, just with some more stars, as the flag under which US waged imperialist wars and committed atrocities, against various small Indian nations. And under which millions of non-white slaves were held and suffered. And why don't you complain that the flag of Italy is the same one as under which the fascist government waged war and committed atrocities under? And Belgium has the same family as head of state as the king under which millions of blacks were massacred in the misnamed Congo Free State.

Re: “UNC protests present debate of law versus morality

Of course there are war memorials to the German dead in WW2. Although in many cases the names of the dead were added to existing war memorials since most towns and villages already had those from WWI.

Japan still uses the same flag as the one they waged war and committed atrocities under, and they still have the same family as head of state. But, Hello Kitty is so cute and all...instead let's be mad at fellow Americans that want to remember their dead ancestors.
