Royston BS: Death penalty for homosexuality? (2125* d) RE: BS: Death penalty for homosexuality? 06 Mar 10


What you need to learn, Keith, is that these discussions start with issues, principles.

You, without fail, appear with statistics that support right-wing socio-political positions.

Why is that?

You select data from dubious sources (like virusmyth.org at the start of this episode) and when you get knocked down, you don't re-evaluate your assumptions but you go on long guests for more data that supports the right-wing positions.

Do you believe that is academic impartiality?

In a recent thread attacking Muslims you produced with a flourish some report that said (for the sake of argument) small% of Muslim students want Sharia law in the UK. Your "angle" was clear and then when someone pointed out that large% didn't want it, we just got a load of confused mumbling from you about blah blah, sizeable minority, blah blah, - to what end, Keith - you are always slewing or inventing things to support a very obvious agenda. Everyone gets it...now.

Gradually you get pushed to extreme measures - like the bare-faced lies and outrageous unsupported exclamations of the last day or so - still in an effort to support those same right-wing views.

And when people accuse you of being a right wing bigot, you cry foul and run away and do things like reactivate an old thread - where everyone lines up to tell you that you are regarded as such, for the reasons I cite.

And then you still refuse to re-evaluate your assumptions and carry on with the same old stuff, until you end up in the state you are now.

Eventually you will get the message. But you are going to have to stop and look carefully at your assumptions and your motivations.

Because at the moment you are positively Melville-esque in your appearance, Ahab.
