i think any decent human being (regardless of racial or ethnic background) would find slavery/rape etc to be offensive and something they would not agree with in the slightest, just because something is legal doesn't mean that it's right. the point i was making is.....i don't really think those remarks/topics are suitable for this forum. it's a fasting forum and i'm sure we all feel as strongly as you do about the adulteration of our foods. the difference here is that many of us chose to eat these foods knowing how bad they are for us, regarding the other issues, such people are not afforded the luxury of choice.
anyway, as in the words of forrest gump "that's all i have to say about that" so concerning the rape remarks i've said my piece and intend to get back to the matter in hand.....fasting :)
