"This is what you get when you cannot defend what you are defending. Nonsense as substance. Vapidity as intellectual rigor. In this arena, you have to rig the rules of the game so that it is actually as wrong, if not more so, to dare to call the wrongdoer (or the apologist for the wrongdoer) out. "

Defining Tolerance Via Bigot's Rights


Yeah I remember the liberals saying the Right wanted to throw granny off a cliff just for talking about making medicare solvent basically. I guess you and your ilk would recognize your own tactics eh?

You are posting a leftist site stating an opinion as a source. The use of the absolute term wrong in the quote would be the contention. I mean I personally believe in many absolute statements but in this instance it is open to interpretation depending on which view you hold to be "true" or "wrong".

No. You are not "intolerant" if you won't accept bigots or bigotry-related concern trolling or apologia about what is truly tolerant and what is not when you meet hate. That ship has sailed."


I hope that the inherent hilarity of stating that being intolerant of behaviors that you do not agree with doesn't make you "intolerant", hasn't escaped the eyes of those reading the post quoted above.

Obvious logical fallacy is obvious.


Because I do not tolerate bigotry does not make me intolerant. I would have to not tolerate for no reason at all and for random things.

Let's say you don't like swearing in your home. You do not tolerate it and you tell people who use an expletive on the spot, that you do not tolerate it. That does not make you intolerant in general.


Not tolerating something makes you intolerant of it. This should not be a difficult concept to grasp.


Yes, of IT. The one thing. Like the example of others using expletives in one;s home.

Can you point out how my statement was incorrect? How is not tolerating something, not being 'intolerant'?

Following your logic of "being a bigot of a bigot doesn't make you a bigot...it makes you right" is the same as saying "the killer of a killer is not a killer". I just don't see how you don't get this? It literally baffles me.

I haven't seen anyone who hates Christians here


Bullocks. I see plenty of people mocking/bullying Christians or anyone of any faith. Maybe you refuse to see it because you agree with those doing the mocking.




It is a sad and backwards time when the defenders of the oppressed are called bigots. This is a twisted concept the right wing has invented. Or maybe it's just right wing media that ahas invented it. I am not sure whom, but they are pandering to a certain segment of the population.


It's like I'm listening to an MSNBC interview of Clinton, Very pathetic that you'd pull the victim card here lol.





I have seen people say things like 'I don't believe in your imaginary sky God, so that doesn't pertain to me'. I have seen Christians say things on the same level of dismissivness. Believe me, if I saw a Christian insulted for no other reason and in a mean way, I would call out the jerk. You don't know me very well. You haven't seen my contributions to serene religious discussions either, it appears. I am not an atheist.

I rarely watch the MSM and have not seen an interview of Hilary Clinton in at least 2 years.

Pulling the victim card would mean that I am saying I am a victim.

You are at least confused and assume too much.

So what would you call a lesbian couple who knowingly demands a religious couple to bake them a gay themed cake when they know it is against their religious beliefs???

What would you call them? Need a hint?

Come on...two lesbians intolerant of the religious couple's belief...what would you call that??????????

I have discussed this to almost no end. I apologize if you find the quantity and quality of my contributions lacking. I am not a 'thread derailer'. This thread I have spent entirely enough time on though. I am awaited elsewhere. Please, do go on.

Good try...you actually made me laugh. The correct answer, as anyone here without an agenda knows is BIGOT.

I found the article to be a good one. I know it is a leftist site, but I have seen it only about 4x in my life. The article came up in a google search, I was looking for better wording for this backwards 'calling the people who call out bigots bigotry' thing.

It is a source, this entire thread is opinion.
