You can very much believe in equal rights and still be completely opposed to someone else's viewpoint.
I am completely opposed to women wearing Burkas and in general everything about many middle eastern religions(and culture). However, I also fully
support those people having the right to walk around here in the U.S. covering their whole bodies even when it's 110 outside. I am not supportive of
passing laws that would prevent those women from wearing the clothes they do. It's their choice here after all.
That doesn't mean I don't hate everything about how ridiculous it is that they feel they need to cover their whole body up. It irks me.
Same thing with Christianity. To me the bible is folk lore fairy tales with some historical references mixed in for good measure. When people start
quoting parts(especially in the context of aiming them toward a particular group) I just roll my eyes because 9/10 something ridiculous preceded the
quote...something left out that proves how ridiculous it all is. I will at that point answer how ridiculous it. Same thing with a topic where the
subject matter brings Christianity into an argument. Of course someone who is atheist will point out information that the amnesiac forgot whilst going
through the various tirade of the day. Mainly large portions of the bible that seem to be forgotten more often than not.
Again though, I am not going to try and pass laws that force those types of Christians to pay higher taxes or lose power of attorney rights with their
loved ones...just because they seem to have amnesia.
Other than gays and atheists "responding" to people using bible quotes or creating gay topics...I haven't seen a whole lot of this particular
demographic going out of our way to bash people. Everyone has an opinion. Most people feel very strongly about theirs. This will also become more
apparent in the context of answering someone back in a post.
I don't remember posts of personal attacks. My understanding is that personal attack posts get deleted. Correct me if I am wrong.
Also, me being a lesbian is not "alternative" for me. It simply is.
That is all.
