The “church” should have lost its moral authority centuries ago. It definitely lost it when they protected pedophiles over children.

I’m glad this country has become more secular. Less protection for bigots.

Where do you live that people would tolerate such a comment?

Do they not have churches around you?
Don't pretend your brand of bigotry is holy. If there weren't "churches around you" you'd have found another excuse to act despicably.

At least, thankfully, beliefs like yours are dying out

Picking and choosing only one specific belief to follow seems...  odd.

They doth protest too much…

$40,000 fine with no suspension just proves the tolerance of homophobia in the NBA. Between this disgusting tolerance of homophobia and the reliance on merchandise made in communist-controlled China, it’s pretty clear NBA players do not really care about social injustices that do not make for marketing that improves the bottom-line…
I do like your cute insistence that China is somehow communist.

Wait until he finds out North Korea is a democratic republic.

He’s not wrong that most of the NBA doesn’t care about homophobia though - he’s just wrong about the rest of it.

Merchandise made in totalitarian-controlled China AKA a place where a ruling political party of 100+ million members who call themselves communists have the power to make fellow citizens disappear if they disagree with the Communist Party of China. Is that better than simply saying communist-controlled China to describe the social injustices that occur in that wretched environment?

It's at least a little bit more accurate, because China is not communist.

China isn’t real communism, which has never been tried?

The part you don’t understand is that communists of every sect get to decide what communism is, what it is not, and their ultimate goal is to impose their definition of communism on every freethinking individual on the planet including you. Just like there are many, many types of cancer, there are many types of communism as defined by each sect of communists. Like cancer, some varieties of communism are worse than others, but one thing is certain of all types of cancer and all types of communism: They need to be recognized and opposed, or misery and death eventually await those in denial.

Some of us are ahead of the curve. Boycott “made in China” now. Most problems in the world today can be traced back to totalitarian-controlled Russia and/or communist-controlled China. We need to isolate these cancerous killers so we can cause their people to force regime change. The world deserves peace, love and understanding.

Marx’s “real communism” is one of the most cancerous ideas in human history and it has indeed been tried many, many times, directly resulting in the deaths of hundreds of millions and the suffering of billions more. Any nation ruled by a party calling itself communist is, make no mistake, a nation that must be recognized as communist and opposed for being communist.

Your understanding of political theory is almost as good as that of geopolitics.

No, that is not how theory works.

No, that is not how theory works.

How to Do Communism, or Communism in Practice 101:

1. Overthrow the establishment
2. Rob individuals of all private property and kill those who resist
3. Force the remaining to work for pittance in fear of saying or doing the wrong thing that makes them disappear
4. Eventually have a dysfunctional economy where many run out of food
5. Many starve to death
6. Say it wasn’t “real communism”
7. Rinse and repeat

China has cycled through the stages a number of times since WW II. In their latest attempts at command and control, they are in stage 3 with some clever illusions and technology that no communist should be given access to. As always, they are approaching stage 4 and sooner than late.

Those of you who speak of “real communism” ought to talk to real people who escaped real communist regimes in order to be clear of this monstrous idea of communism that continues to F up the world. In reality, real communism is someone calling themself communist and however it is they define communism and enforce the will of the party on everyone. The cycle is always the same as listed above. That’s “real communism” in reality, not a 19th century fairy tale.

I beg of you, please study political theory. Posts like this are just beyond incorrect.

Not even - communism is, more or less, grassroots democratic management of essential societal needs. Does the CCP fit that definition? Your local police union is more communist than the CCP.

You’re right that it is important to separate the idea of ‘real communism’ out from how things have shaken out in Russia, China, Cuba, &c., but at this point there’s decades of good, thoughtful discussion about this which folks are happy to evaluate if they do choose to actually explore it, you don’t need to get it from a basketball blog.

Not that it matters for anything in terms of this discussion, but I’m actually writing this post from a formerly communist country right now - I guess all those people I talk to who miss the good old days aren’t real?

All in all though, this has as much to do with Anthony Edwards as what I had for breakfast this morning - that is to say, nothing.
Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time.

But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.
