It seems you want to talk about anything BUT the fact that he explicitly chose that example, while I am following...

So you want to broaden the complaint then?

Maybe someday you can define "we are done" for me whereby there might be any consistency to you saying that and yet you continue to snipe at me.
Or perhaps that is also somehow a "reading...

Your approach is assuming your opinion as fact.

Then how do you explain the information previously provided?

How can you just wave off the statistics, and then guess that the sexual activity rates increased by more than that?

Re: Pope Benedict endorses condom use for male prostitutes only

I understand the idea behind the claim, but it is deeply flawed.

Felicity, you really need to start listening.

I AM NOT SAYING that he said "sex will have to increase by a factor of 6.67 in order for my statement to be true.

Okay.
Do you have a problem with how that "sounds"?

Or was your commentary a pointless and futile response?
