    The video is disgusting. More disgusting is that folks just sat there and watched and didn't help.

    That's because we have Christians teaching complete pacifism and any attempt at defending oneself or others is a sin against God.

    Funny. I didn't see any of that in the story.

    I addressed Zaac's last statement. If you don't like it, report it. I'm standing by it. Christian men have led the way. Nobody wants to be involved.

    Stand by it all you want, but there is no evidence your contention has anything to do with the situation.

    My, aren't you prickly when someone asks for a little evidence to back up your statement?

    Besides, why would I report you? Being a jerk isn't against the board rules. It would be a waste of electrons.

    In that situation, use whatever you have-- pocket knife, pen, key-- and lunge hard straight for his eye. And if he doesn't get away, go for the other eye.

    The man who did the assaulting used his questions as a pretext to his actions and in fact a distraction. They questions were irrelevant. He was going to do this no matter what. The man who was assaulted was caught by surprise. Nothing more.

    Yeah. I've been called worse, by the author of this o/p. And I like him. Not sure why you've chosen this, out of all the other things I have said.

    I still stand by it. If you think I'm a jerk, that's ok.

    If he had fought back, there's people here who would call him a sinner.

    This is a great assessment.
