    I am sure it was very hard for @Dayton3 to spell gawd done eet! which is the only acceptable answer in Arkansas.

    You don't even need to know that when your degree comes from a cracker jack box.

    I've posted them here in the past. @ed629 will even admit to that. Not doing it again.

    Please don't encourage him. He'll end up making this another thread about himself.

    That said, I expected the Usual Suspects to start squawking about SJWs again, but apparently Columbus is not high on their OUTRAGE meter, being Eyetalian and all. :evilpop:

    That was one thing that caught my eye... Without aspersions, this subject didn't strike me as one I'd expect T.R. to post, let alone be in support of. Likewise, Federal Captain Farm Conspiracy.

    @Spaceturkey wasn't being sarcastic. He was being an asshole.

    Obviously you see nothing wrong with using a persons religious beliefs against them.

    Your religious belief is Hypocrisy? Is your primary deity a god or a goddess?

    Who says I can't be both? :D

    But was that not a brilliantly crafted satire, worthy of Cairpre?

    I generally agree that we should look at people in context. It's why I'm less uncomfortable with the slave-owning George Washington, who passively went along with an evil that had not yet fully entered the public consciousness, than with someone like Jefferson Davis, who actively fought to preserve an evil at a time when its nature was widely understood.

    But even by the standards of his time, Columbus was a piece of shit. Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand removed him from power because of his abuses, and even threw him in jail for six weeks when he returned to Spain.

    You should be more supportive of a fellow Christian Conservative Republican.

    Don't sacrifice the intelligence of your children to make the congregation's village idiot feel better about themselves.

    If anyone's interested in a defense of Columbus, you can start with this:



    Not the strongest arguments. It does a much better job of defending him on the trivial criticisms (ie, he wasn't a good sailor, didn't advance round Earth theory) than the ones that actually lead people to villainize him (being a mass murderer and slaver). But this is what opponents put forth to me, so I'm putting it to ya'll in the interest of debate.
