How do you define “Reactionary”?
I looked up the word reactionary in the dictionary and here’s what I found:
I suppose, based on this definition, you can’t call this teacher’s behavior as reactionary. So what do you call it? To say that he might have overreacted seems like a mild understatement.
A friend of mine recently posted this picture on my Facebook timeline and asked me to write an article on Natural Law arguments regarding Gay Marriage.
Why might I be a bit hesitant to write such an article? Two reasons.
First, no one wants to be branded as a hate-monger, just for expressing his personal views on a controversial topic.
Second, following from the first, this country is not ready for a debate on Gay Marriage, because both sides need to be reasonable before there can be any debate. Note, I have not been specific about who I’m calling unreasonable. Since I learned that I did not even know the definition of the word reactionary until just recently, I think I’d better look up the word unreasonable, first, lest I unwittingly end up using it on myself.
So, am I going to write the article. I will, unless someone talks me out of it.
I’m pretty sure no one is going to talk me out of it.
this last photo is my screen saver now. thanks.
I’d be interested in reading said article.
It’s there. Perhaps not as satisfactory as it could be, but the best I could do with the short time I allowed myself to write it.
Do better if you can… are you SEAL6 or whatever like that???
