He turned from the sight of human ignorance and human fate and the sea eating the ground we stand on, which, had he been able to contemplate it fixedly might have led to something; and found consolation in trifles so slight compared with the august theme just now before him that he was disposed to slur that comfort over, to deprecate it, as if to be caught happy in a world of misery was for an honest man the most despicable of crimes.
The essence of religious feeling does not come under any sort of reasoning or atheism, and has nothing to do with any crimes or misdemeanors. There is something else here, and there will always be something else - something that the atheists will for ever slur over; they will always be talking of something else.
To suggest that New Zealand journalists who join the EPMU for the workplace protections and rights that come with belonging to a union are somehow tainted is a gross slur on their professionalism.
He's drunk 50 percent of the time. I stumble and slur words.
This is no slur on our incredible talented and hardworking correspondents. The fact of the matter is that, when you have an anchor out there in the country, you're going to cover the story more.
Not every anti-Semitic incident is a hate crime that can be prosecuted. Not every slur or statement is actually illegal or a crime. What we document are incidents, reports that people give to us that we research and we corroborate.
From what I understand, yesterday, the student got enraged at another student who used a racial slur against him. He didn't want to go to school today because he was afraid the remarks would continue.
I was 6-6, 240 pounds and didn't look like a very nice guy out there so nobody ever threw a racial slur at me. There were some things that happened a couple of times to my teammates, and I came to their rescue, but nobody ever said anything to me. I had a bald head, never smiledthey wanted no part of me. There was one scene in the movie where one of our players is beaten up in a restaurant bathroom and his head gets shoved in the toilet, but that never happened. If anybody would've stuffed one of my guys heads in the toilet like that, they wouldn't have lived to tell about it. There's nothing Haskins or anybody else could've said to stop me from doing something really bad to those guys. Again, that's the movie stuff. Good for dramatics, but I'd never let that happen.
When a woman drinks it's as if an animal were drinking, or a child. Alcoholism is scandalous in a woman, and a female alcoholic is rare, a serious matter. It's a slur on the divine in our nature.
