Re: -

Id like to be pro-life or to think of myself as such, being raised Catholic. I hate the idea of abortion.

Here's what I've been saying for years, but said more eloquently by Bill Maher: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAsExSNfNXQ Common sense is never embraced by the corrupt powers that be.

American Marxism is still #1 as NY Times best seller in non-fiction!! Here is how chapter two, "Breeding Mobs" begins: Almost a decade ago, and before Antifa was widely known and Black Lives Matter (BLM) was established, I wrote of mass movements in my book Ameritopia in the framework of utopianism...

Re: Islam and Free Speech

Since 2018 WikiIslam has been run by Ex-Muslims, so they know Islam.

Cannot know every ex-Muslim's motives, but suspect many are sad & disappointed in what they used to believe, not hate filled.

Ex-Mormons, ex-Scientologists, ex-Xtians etc. just drop the old faith more in sorrow than anger.
