Quote# 26236

"While some say the decision was made in defense of conservative values, others say it was simply discrimination against gays and lesbians."

Same thing. And a good thing, too.

This is my new message - we have the inalienable RIGHT to discriminate against that which is unhealthy, immoral and unnatural. No one can take that right away. To take that right away is totalitarianism.

Actually the foundation of your rights is that you have the right to do whatever you want unless you infringe on other people's rights. So no, you don't have the right to treat people like monsters.

And discriminating against what you consider immoral somehow isn't totalitarianism?

Well then, I'm glad I'm discriminating against you unhealthy, unnatural and immoral fundies. And if you try to stop me from discriminating against you, that would be totalitarianism.

That was my new message.

You have the inalienable right to mind your own business, dislike gays and leave them alone. You don't have a right to interfere with them. Here's a simple guideline: Orthodox Jews think eating pork is unhealthy, immoral and unnatural. You have the same rights toward gays as they have toward port-eaters.

"This is my new message"

[b]No, sadly, that is not a new message."


"we have the inalienable RIGHT to discriminate against that which is unhealthy, immoral and unnatural."

No, you don't.
First, there is no evidence that homosexuality is unhealthy, immoral or unnatural.
Second, even if homosexuality was as you claim, you do not have a right to discriminate against homosexuals. You don't have to be one, marry one or like them, but you are not free to discriminate against them.



"No one can take that right away."

Of course not... because you didn't have that right to begin with.


"To take that right away is totalitarianism."

No, to take that right (which you never had) away is called equality.

Little Jeremiah, I consider your beliefs to be unhealthy, immoral and unnatural. You don't mind if I discriminate against a little, do you?

6/10/2007 2:46:32 PM



Exactly, that's why they discriminate against you when you reclaim your "right" to harrass people, impose your beliefs and not letting honest human beings who have made NOTHING to you to live in peace.

At yet you complain when people try to take away your rights.

Hypocrisy alert!

The Severity Prayer

God grant me the severity
to bash a lifestyle I cannot comprehend;
the courage to persecute those I can’t ban;
to be a chiefdom and totally indifferent.

Woohoo! Yes! Thank you Jeremiah, now can discriminate against fundies with a clear conscience!

Maybe I'm a little ruthless right now, but it's posts like this that make me think Xtians should have no rights.

"we have the inalienable RIGHT to discriminate against that which is unhealthy, immoral and unnatural"

You bet.
Let's start with xtians and their worthless superstitious crap.

Wrong. You do have the right to be a bigot, but your rights end when they infringe on another's rights.

Learn what your rights actually are, and stop making an ass of yourself.
