Are you only comfortable with violence if it is behind someone else's closed doors?

Protests to focus on doctor who performed 60,000 abortions

I know some people are not comfortable with violence. I myself do not believe that an evil means should ever be used to bring about a good end. However, it makes me wonder how many people are comfortable with this kind of violence because it happens behind the closed doors of an abortion clinic. Are you only comfortable with violence if it is behind someone else's closed doors? Safely out of the streets?

Too Religious

My question is what is going to happen to this judge? Are there no consequences for him? Shouldn't there be?

Women are objects

Of course, this is not what I believe but it is an assumption that most people in the United States seem to live under. Although it is easy to single out women, they also believe this about men too. Men are objects. Women are objects. They can be used. Thrown away. Like a horse. Or a paper towel. After all, we are just a bunch of molecules (or that is an excuse we use).

To be continued.
