What does empathy have to do with being Welsh ?

That word does not mean what you think it means.

@ Doubting Thomas
Repress your sexuality for long enough and who knows how crazy it'd make you?
Hint: This crazy.

Rick Warden seems a little bit angry here. According to his own laws of compassion, one of us should sodomize him to make him feel better...

Mister Spak, I whole-heartedly agree. There is something seriously wrong with people who can't stop thinking about sexual perversions and finding excuses to bring them up in every conversation.

Did someone get a little bit of Pharyngula butt-hurt and needs to take it out on PZ? Poor little baby.
Way to not understand empathy, fuckwit.

Looking for a reason, much?

@rubber chicken, that made me do a spit-take.
Rick, I suggest a good psychiatrist and about, oh, 6-10 years of intensive therapy.

Hey Fundy, when all of your syllogisms end with bestiality, you should probably go see a shrink.

Try looking up up the word "empathy" first.

Spit out my drink. Goddamn it.
As for Ricky here, well, if morality is based on the whims of some god, then he should be morally justified to go into a field and sodomize a lonely sheep if god orders him to.

Rick, Rick, Rick. This is no time for confessions.

Non-sequitur of the month?

I swear I read this thing several times and still don't get how he got from morality and empathy to sheep fucking. Must be a Republican thing.

Actually, Doubting Thomas, we used to call these types Pruritans. They'd go sniffing out all kinds of deviant sex acts they could denounce so they could get their rocks off picturing and talking about them.

Just make sure it's a lonely sheep.

Cannot into empathy, plz advize.

Projecting much, Prick Warden? Humanism does not work that way, but I'm worried about you. Go die in a fire.

Do you even think before you run your mouth?

Ow. Most of us here got this wrong. I hate it when that happens.
He's trying to rebut P.Z. Myers' claim by reductio ad absurdam.
We can't reasonably twit this guy for supporting a darnedest thing. He's created an argument to show that Myer's logic leads to a darnedest thing that the OP doesn't support.
We're responding as if he's producing a load of fail, when in fact he's claiming that the other person's argument is producing that load of fail.
Not that he's correctly stated Myers' argument. I'm sure his argument is a straw-man caricature of Myers' actual argument. But none of us here have responded to that. If his account of Myers' view is correct then this guy has logically refuted that view. Of course, part of his argument is implied, but as long as the person he's speaking to draws the correct inferences, that all he needs.
Those who don't see how his argument links empathy and sheep-shagging must have missed the word 'lonely'. He's proposing that Myers' argument leads to the conclusion that it's moral to console a lonely sheep sexually, a proposition that he finds so absurd it warrants immediate dismissal of Myers' argument.
The notion of 'informed consent' actually supports his argument. Its absence is one the errors in (his version of) Myers' argument, not his.
