GUEST,musket again BS: The Pope's Survey (402* d) RE: BS: The Pope's Survey 02 Dec 13

Joe. Is it really extreme to indicate how bad bigotry is?

People within religious organisations continually claim that those who don't share their take on life have some sort of secular agenda. Senior church leaders refer to losing court cases where their prejudice has had an effect on innocent people and they call it persecution. Apparently, a couple who ran a hotel here in The UK thought it right that they could refuse a couple who had booked a room on the basis they happened to both be men. A nurse visiting old people in their home couldn't see what the fuss was when she was asking people to pray with her and leaving them leaflets when they refused or became confused or upset.

They asked the courts to suggest it was they who were being persecuted rather than those who suffered from their blinkered bigotry.

So when I point out how bad religious bigotry can get, it makes you wonder. Do you think there is a point where intolerance remains acceptable? Where would we draw the line? Who would draw it?   

Presumably the Ugandan priest who happily admitted on camera he ordered the corrective rape of a young lesbian is beyond the pail? Westboro? How's about Akenaton? Whilst we read this, he is busy on another thread saying lots of tests have been carried out showing gay porn to "normal" men and checking to see if they get an erection. He reckons that a) they don't and b) that proves that being gay is unnatural and normal people find it repulsive.

Fancy a game of spot the difference?
