26. I'll type slower this time.



I'd prefer "catholics" not run anything to do with women, gays, and science.

They have a lousy history of fucking up each and all.


See the quotes and the lower case `catholics`. Those would be your first clues when it comes to comprehending text on a screen.

The, frequently referred to as "scary quotes", are the indication that I'm not referring to Catholics. Too difficult?

Many who type to this board use various means to indicate tone, intent, and context of our posts based in the simple tools of punctuation. One of those tools is the use of "scary quotes" to denote something not to be taken as simplistically as the words within the quotes.

I personally, use lower case characters in those words traditionally afforded the unquestioned validity of capitalization in order to denote lack of respect (on my part) as well as an opportunity to display a challenge to the status quo.

The upshot being, I used "catholics" to depict those who claim Catholicism in the name of their own self-promoting agenda and who would use anything as an appeal to some higher authority to justify their own bigotries as well as those who use their "divine" authority to butt their sanctimonious noses into the realms of science and politics while claiming the "divine right" of "God's Word" to tear down and repress and suppress "others". (mixed metaphors intended)

Now, if you'll excuse me; that's as slowly and simplistically as I'm able or willing to type.
