I never said to take up arms or be violent about fighting against such behavior. I am against such things. But, as with this forum, voicing your opinion about the problem is the LEAST one can do. Not only that, but simply turning the other cheek leads to people believing there are no consequences for their actions.
When people don't think there are negative consequences for their behavior, there is nothing to stop their actions. You are correct to leave religion out of this debate, although the allusion to religion in your and other posts was noted.
I think many people, myself included, read only what they want to see, not what is actually written. Most of the points of my last few posts were missed by everyone who posted replies. Ah, well... I never thought I would change the world in a day or one message. However, I'll never give up!
Good luck and good fishin'
