Former U.S. President Ronald Reagan's son sits on the Board of that Freedom From Religion Foundation. It must not have been a pretty sight watching his father waste away with dementia.

How about instead we use, "Stop being a <zederated> Richard!"
How about speaking English, and being direct? Say what you mean and mean what you say.
Actually, they ARE being direct; the "lost in translation" lies with you.

And I still say he's a sock puppet.
Well then, go ahead and say it. I am not privy to who Richard is, nor up to speed on what "zederated" means.
Are you spoiling for a fight, Goose? Do you really, really want a fight? Well, you aren't going to get it.

Stand down and move along.
No fighting on my part. Only self defense here. Self defense. If I don't stand up for moi même, who will?

Thanks for the French, by the way. It made me smile.

BTW, what was it about my words (highlighted above) that sounded to you like I wanted a fight? I have since come to know what a "zederated Richard" is, and I take offense to anyone here ever making that kind of remark about me again. I trust that is clear and fully understood.

And as for French, why the secret code language? I mean, really, why not just come out and say "he's a f--king dick," for that is what it means, according to Skip. Using coded language is cowardly and deceitful. Not particularly Christian virtues, there, fellas.

I see you've chosen the "flame out" path. At least make it amusing, would you? The Internet tough guy routine has grown rather stale. We've seen it before. Show some style and make it memorable.

Good grief. We've taken what could have been a perfectly contentious political thread and ruined it.

As a note-- zederated means that something was redacted. Sometimes we include it ourselves. Zed (is)/was a moderator and he'd put down <zederated> on some removed material. It's a CPS thing-- it has leaked out to facebook upon occasion.

It usually means something similar to what Pa Hillbilly Bear would say:

The secular puritans at the FFRF have lost a different court case, but they keep trying. It's why they exist.

This time, they were suing to prevent the House of Representatives from opening with a prayer.
http://www.lifenews.com/2017/10/12/athe ... in-prayer/
The House of Representatives can continue to open its sessions in prayer, a U.S. District Court ruled Wednesday.

The practice was challenged by Freedom From Religion Foundation Co-President Dan Barker last year after he was told he could not deliver a secular invocation. He sued U.S. House Chaplain Patrick Conroy for “violating his rights” under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) and the Constitution. The FFRF filed the lawsuit on the National Day of Prayer.
