So by saying "assume it was unintentional unless proven intentional" under the belief that to prove something is just some people saying that it is that way, you're saying that a jury should assume innocence unless the jury has said they're guilty?
So what? No one commits any crimes? Well that would solve most death penalty related controversies. Clever clever.
Thank goodness this got homepaged in such a timely manner.
In your opinion what constitutes proof that someone committed a crime?
Killing someone because you were misinformed and thought it was okay is, in my opinion, akin to killing someone because you were reckless.
If it wasn't true then it was not a fact, nor could it have been proven.
In that case we have different standards of proof.
In that case I would reason that your second comment contradicts your views.
Unless you believe that an innocent person can be proven guilty, then these people must have sentenced an man who, by the reasoning of innocent until proven guilty, they knew was innocent.
You can not unintentionally sentence someone to death.
I'd argue that it's just as common to give religion credit for good things and when it causes bad things to just push the religion aspect aside.
I mean how often do you hear people speak of terrorists or the Westborough Baptists and hear them say "They're not real [religious people]."? That to me doesn't make sense.
I agree that someone who sees only the bad in something they don't like is unreasonable, but it goes both ways, and it happens with so many different things, to say that it's unfair on religion isn't something I agree with.
You should make a follow up post to this that just says "How do you feel about the issues?"
Hey now, don't be unfair, don't you remember what amirite used to be like? Everyone always using the word cunt without it being censored, damaging our fragile little eyes, and all that freedom to express your opinion about the site, and have the people in charge acknowledge your thoughts, when they should have just been deleting them and pretending your opinion just wasn't there.
I bet you can't reply to this comment before they delete it.
The mods are spending too much time stopping people from making good posts to stop people from making awful posts.
It would have taken about five extra seconds to put this in amirite format.
