Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y During the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit, Richard M. Stallman of the Free Software Foundation (and the Superfluous Introduction Award goes to...) gave a keynote speech. Said keynote speech raised a few eyebrows in the Free software community because of a number of questionable remarks regarding women in technology. David "Lefty" Schlesinger, member of the GNOME Advisory Board and active in the mobile open source community, took issue with RMS' remarks and decided to call him out on it. The response he got was... Less than satisfying.

Which problem is that? Don't confuse politics with religion. The problem with religions is that they engage in politics.

If they would stick to what was written in their holy books and enforce only that, then there wouldn't be nearly as much blending of religion and politics.

Also, the religion called "political correctness" (which is actually no religion at all because it is not well documented in terms of its belief system) is running rampant in this country among others.

Political correctness must be stopped before any other "establishment of religion" as defined in the time period of the founding fathers of the USA. According to the first amendment, an "establishment of religion" cannot be endorsed or restricted by congress. That's right, there's a "free exercise" clause in the first amendment right along side of the requirement that congress doesn't endorse one state religion over another.

Now that I've stood on my political soapbox, perhaps you would prefer that I demonstrate something that can be justified according to the scriptures in its original context and in conjunction with other scriptures so that you can note the difference between the two.
