"Legal anti-sodomy laws"? His legalist bullshit is stinking to high heavens. Since when did legalism become a valid moral philosophy, anyway?
Here is how the conversation panned on Axis History Forum
. This is what I said initially:
And I don't think the Nazis were the only ones who partially ruined scientific progress through petty bigotry; in England when Alan Turin (a brilliant mathematical genius) was convicted of being a homosexual (another widely despised minority group) the British government did nothing to protect Mr. Turin who did a great service to his country and was a valuable scientific asset.
And this what the fool said in return:
That "R.M. Schultz" Twat wrote:
Here you are comparing apples to oranges. It is completely disingenuous to equate Jews and homosexuals as “despised minority groups” since Jewishness is genetic and sodomy is a behavior. Alan Turing was punished for what he did while the Jewish victims of Nazism were persecuted for who they were and the moral difference between these is simply incalculable. Furthermore, Turing was convicted in a court of law after due process under laws passed by democratic methods, while the Nazi’s overturned the rule of law completely. However misguided the prosecution of Turing might have been, regulation of behavior is well within the purview of state power in a democratically elected government. Comparing prosecutions under laws that now seem quaint and out of date (yet were enacted democratically) to genocide verges on moral bankruptcy.
And of course the entire thread rapidly degenerated from there and I realised what a joke R.M. Schultz
And as for the rest of Axis History Forum
: I don't think it's a very bad historical forum and there are pleanty of good people who are trying to contend with all the Neo-Nazis and Third Reich apologists infesting the joint. And there are many "BANNED" titles beneath many an avatar, so that means the moderators there are doing something about those idiots.
And while R.M. Schultz
is obviously a hypocrite and a fool, he is not a Neo-Nazi: he seems more misguided, rather than evil. And ironically I found another guy on Axis History Forum
who was once in the Waffen-SS(!) to be a more open minded and wiser poster than R.M. Schultz
