[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Casinos in Nevada : Let me see, if I were abused by a priest at a church, and the church did nothing, I would first go to the law. And Yes, if the church did nothing I would indeed go to another church. I think 99% of the populace is probably with me on that one. I think I know what you are trying to get at, but that example probably isn't a very good one. The key difference between the priest example in the original post and your example is that the original post talks about the fact many people do not even report the abuse. Once they do report the abuse, I doubt they just sit by, watch nothing happen, and go happily to church every Sunday.

Really? I guess you are not adept at putting yourself in the another person's shoes. Just to remind you, those that were abused by the priests were little boys. They didn't report the abuse at the time, or if they did, their parents most likely didn't believe them. Either way, they did not change churches because the parents did not change churches.
That is the problem with restricting things to your viewpoint or with thinking that yours is the only viewpoint because everyone you hang around with thinks the same way.
No problem though. People do it all the time. I am a big guy and can lift a lot of weight yet everytime I go to pick up or move something heavy, she says I won't be able to do it, until I do. If it is a two person job, for some reason, I expect that she can handle her half when in fact, she can only handle about 1/3. We both project our own experiences on each other. She is not used to lifting heavy objects and thinks it difficult for everyone. I am used to it and sometimes don't understand why she might struggle. Apologies for the example used, but we were moving furniture this past weekend so it is fresh on my mind.
