"Who said the issue was even primarily religious, much less wholly religious? There is a legal component ... and on the legal component, parity is doable. There are also moral, historical, biological, social, familial, and religious…"

"Those are excellent questions. I'm really not sure. I would like to think of myself as cool or a musician. But I don't look that way anymore. Classic sounds good but I really have to look it up. lol Scholarly sounds good too. I guess I…"
