    No I mixed up which of your three threads I was answering. Sorry.
    Yes, of course I disagree with pretty much all of what you said, but that was the purpose of the OP wasn't it?

    What you say isn't telling me what you disagree with. Take this for example. What if homo fruitcakes had a well known insult for those who are straight-hetrosexual. Now say you were straight-hetrosexual and a homo called you that. Would you be offended? Or would you be happy that you are what they called you.

    No, it was called the water test. The woman was bound and lowered under water in a dunking chair and left there for at least 15 minutes. When they pulled her up if she was dead then she was innocent of being a witch. I don't suppose anyone knows how violently they would have crapped their pants if they pulled one up alive?

    Okay Mike. My "swimming test" was based on the scientific theory that witches had rejected the christening holy water, so the water would in turn reject them and keep them floating.
    I don't know what your test was supposed to prove; sounds like a good way to drown someone, though.

    Back in the days when people believed in witches, it was an actual "test" gave to suspected witches.

    They used to feed prisoners in Salem raw live lobsters, too.
    Of course, they did that everywhere.

    Your argument doesn't make sense. It was just an excuse to use insults indirectly that you might not otherwise get away with. You've been banned from other boards before, haven't you? And so young, too, most likely.

    I don't think gays or blacks deserve derogatory names. So I disagree with your whole OP.

    I see that this person was banned. Do you often ask questions of banned people? It does make things simpler I suppose. Also, you would be insulting Hitler. Not the OP.
