Malcolm replied to Wayne's discussion 'Do you think that it should be legal for parents to use prayer as a method of healing to their children?'
"Th problem with this line of reasoning is that with a mortgage, all that matters is whether the payment was made, not whether it was attempted, whereas with medical treatment, since outcomes cannot be assured, one can only insist that it is tried."

Malcolm replied to Wayne's discussion 'Do you think that it should be legal for parents to use prayer as a method of healing to their children?'
"The fact that they are using prayer should be irrelevant, since it is not a form of medical treatment. Basically, the question should be, did they seek appropriate medical care for their child? What they do outside of this (such as prayer) is not…"

Malcolm replied to Wayne's discussion 'Do you think that it should be legal for parents to use prayer as a method of healing to their children?'
"Well, even in the case of sexual intercourse with a child, some cultures permit it because it is allowed in their religion. For example, among the prophet Mohammad's many wives was at least one who was under the age of 10 when he married (and…"

Malcolm replied to kris feenstra's discussion 'Why do you live (or stay) where you live?'

Malcolm replied to Dustin's discussion 'Would you Ever ... !?'
"I suppose we can't discuss cannibalism without the obligatory Monty Python reference.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFDgSKbapzY"

Malcolm commented on Michel Campbell's blog post 'Ayn Rand's Poli¢e $tate'
"Also, it is not a crime to drive the average speed of motorists around you, it is actually the safest speed.   And if everyone around you is doing 120 mph, then it is legal for you to do so as well? This is an interesting legal theory. Maybe in…"

Malcolm replied to Gaytor's discussion 'Increase Taxes to Create Jobs'
"Raising taxes will only create jobs if the revenue is spent in a way that employs people. For example, infrastructure projects or unemployment benefits. Just raising taxes without cutting them elsewhere or increasing spending will only lead to job…"

Malcolm replied to sukhdeep's discussion 'disposable income for $14500 is more than $60000 in U.S.A.'
"But you did link to my comment. Or do you mean that your reply was NOT intended to link to my comment? That would make more sense, since I don't see how what you said has anything to do my either of points."

Malcolm replied to sukhdeep's discussion 'disposable income for $14500 is more than $60000 in U.S.A.'
"Why are childcare costs so much lower for the person making $3,625? Because that person is staying home 3 weeks out out 4? But then that person is working as a full time mother for 3 weeks, which is certainly work. I'd rather have the…"

Malcolm replied to Angie Baugh Stewart's discussion 'Can an atheist and a christian be together happily?'
"I'm tempted to answer this question by paraphrasing Ben Franklin on keeping secrets. But since several people have widened the topic to include a marriage between a theist and an atheist, I'll add that I'm happily married to a…"

Malcolm replied to Todd Pence's discussion 'Facebook post I read today'
"The Pledge of Allegiance is not mandatory in schools? When did that change?"

Malcolm replied to Matthew Vaughan's discussion 'Responding to 'God Bless You' and 'I'll Pray for you''
"Or better yet, "May the Schwartz be with you.""

Malcolm replied to Amanda Artman's discussion '"Parents' trial begins in death of Rhawnhurst toddler who did not receive medical care"'
"From the WHO:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haemophilus_influenzae   So it should have been prevented in the first place, if they had only vaccinated their child, and despite the defense expert's testimony, it is not resistant to all…"

Malcolm replied to Julien's discussion 'Adoption vs IVF vs Natural birth'
"I would never bring a child into this shitty world. I don't find it to be so shitty, and I certainly am glad that I was born. Moreover, I can provide for a sufficient quality of life for my children so that they have a good chance of not…"

Malcolm replied to Julien's discussion 'Adoption vs IVF vs Natural birth'
"All that is involved with IVF is that an egg is taken from the prospective mother (which she normally uses up every month anyway) and is mixed with some sperm from the prospective father (who usually has no problem replacing it) and then the…"

Malcolm replied to Julien's discussion 'Adoption vs IVF vs Natural birth'
"Massachusetts allows same-sex marriages; in fact, I think it was the first state to do so. So do Connecticut, Iowa, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Washington, D.C., and sometimes California. Why shouldn't homosexual couples/persons or unmarried…"
