Your posts are, quite franky, absurd. The fact someone could watch an execution shocks and sickens me. No matter who is being killed. The fact that someone will admit to seeing it and almost delight in that fact is worrying.

Why did you once support it? What changed your mind?

When you said my mind is already closed, I hope that was not meant in a rude way?

Answer this. Do you watch action films, where people are killed in the films?? If you do aren't you enjoying the main character waste all the bad guys to save the world or his lover, or family?

I disagree. Now, Ford is the post-WWII US President about whom I know the least, but I very much doubt that his passing warranted this bickering.

Some of you seem to be confusing lengthy debate for respect.

Personally, I posted in Ford's RIP thread. Yes, I know it was just a full stop, which may not initially appear to be much compared to my posts regarding Saddam. However, I consider it far more significant than anything I have written about Saddam as it is meant to signify a minute of silence. I'm not giving Saddam a minute of silence.

Nope, have you? Only from what I have seen on film.

It actually turns my stomach. And then we crow about the Saudis executing people in soccer stadiums.

If you want to watch a person being killed, to me that brings up questions of the worth and value of life to you. I remember once coming out of a bomb shelter, I think I was 11 and seeing people running to collect body parts on the street. I cannot imagine what human being would elect to watch a man die, any man. What of your humanity are you losing in exchange for that?

When I say narrow minded, I'm referring to how Axver (I believe it was) pointed out that all of your points had been refuted, and you say that you have to hold on to your opinion.

I'm not judging your opinion right now. I'm just curious as to why you are clinging to it. That's why people are posting the :bang: smiley, because you don't even acknowledge our points. We respond to yours, but your usual response to our points is something emotional or condenscending.

I jusst wanna know why you aren't open to other schools of thought.

Some of us did try.

After expressing that I did hold Ford in some esteem, a poster on this forum asked me if I was on drugs. So, I frankly did not choose to continue that futile effort.

No. I avoid movies of that nature.

You're talking about films. This is about real, human life.

Why am I clinging to this? Because until recently my aunts and uncles told me that my one uncle died from a gun shot by his former professor.

I would characterise my support for the death penalty as an immature emotional reaction, formed as a preteen before I had a true grasp on the value of life. Around when I was 16-17, I began questioning this and I reached the conclusions that have formed the basis of my argument in this and other threads. I don't recall quite when I definitively changed my opinion, probably around my 18th birthday. My stance has only become further solidified since becoming a pacifist.

Certainly not. I only referred to your mind as closed because you yourself essentially admitted to it through your statement that your opinion cannot be changed.
