I didn't say he advocated the act. I said he (falsely) accused me of being indifferent to it as long as the deficit was reduced. Coming up with a completely out-of-the-blue example like that after twice posting about baby-rape as if I find it acceptable in a candidate makes him a creepy guy though, IMO. And let's not lose sight of the fact that I ignored his creepiness the first couple of times, but he didn't seem to want to take that for an answer.
I don't know if the comment was out of line or not, but it provides the context for my later comments. It's curious that you read right past them without pointing out that they were out of line though and then somehow found the motivation to criticize my response.
