No one accused you of insulting Jews. On the contrary, you actually claim that they are somehow more "deserving" of a good legal education because they have traditionally been over-represented in the legal field. Basically trashing any OTHER religion by saying that they are less worthy to study and practice law.


OP, this was your logic. You insinuated that you would pick a jewish person if you were on adcomm because they are over-represented (thus proving, in your mind and according to your logic, that they are somehow more capable and more deserving as a result). This logically leads to you saying that other religions are less worthy. kjadkins +1

I was basing my suggestion of your ban on your history of inciting threads like these.


I wasn't bashing mormonism, I have no problems with mormons and they can live their lives however they please. I was talking about polygamy, which is not mutually exclusive with mormonism, and was not bashing it but moreso stating that i do not understand how they do it and that i, myself, could not.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy this thread a little bit.

You are right. My apologies for not separating mormonism from polygamy in general during my accusation.

Hahahahaha "stunted"? Assuming you mean "stunned", I am a bit stunned that you would make the radical accusation that I am an anti-semite because I believe that law school should be an opportunity equally available to anyone regardless of religious affiliation and not more accessible to members one particular religion over another.

Too bad we can't also request a ban of his LSN profile due to the inappropriate rape reference. As someone who volunteers with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, it's vulgar and insulting to compare compulsively status checking to rape.

Haha...It's about time you stop accusing others and start pointing the finger at yourself!

Where do you even begin? It's like arguing with someone in a language they don't speak. It's just gonna keep getting louder, and it's not going to make anyone happy.
