First, your point is trivially true. So much so that you seem to be the only person to have an issue with the point JC was making.

That you apparently think that we should measure the merits of our society against the absolute worst examples of humanity, and be satisfied with being better than those, instead of against the better tomorrow that we hope to be able to achieve, may explain why.

You really come across as a person with religious convictions interfering with your ability to reason. This can be clearly seen in every counter argument you have presented in this thread. With each of your arguments you just dig yourself a deeper hole and you don’t even understand why the people here have responded to you in that way.

The statement is: “This could have been filmed only in America: in other places the instruction is more insidious.” I am pointing out that this is obviously false and a ridiculous statement on multiple levels. It is trivially true only inasmuch as hoosiers do not really exist outside of America. Do you think outside of America they do not produce and openly, not in any way insidiously fyi, promote things like madrasas which advocate genocide against Jews along with terrorism and general Death to America? That is just one example. To be so upset about hoosiers acting stupid in Church with a little kid singing about no homos in heaven strikes me as more than a bit ridiculous. What the hell do you think they do at home? Have gay bash kumbaya sleepovers with guys who look like Bobby Knight yelling at them about being real men? For all I know they probably do that and I do not care because there are much bigger things to get upset about than how hoosiers and hillbillys behave in private.
