Look I can respect, ehhh maybe tolerate is a better word, people's most hate filled bigoted speech, if they have the balls to say it to my face. No one has EVER said even a fraction of a percent of the things I read or hear people on line say (with no face to face contact). To me, it seems apparent that racism and bigotry are huge issues in the US, but it's the dirty little secret no one talks about, unless of course you can't identify them.
As I have argued in the OP, those who revere such a definition of a deity are likely to take on such characteristics themselves; if they are offended by being described as having the psychology of "petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freaks; vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleansers; misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bullies" then such offense is entirely intentional on my part; if the apologists for the Biblical deity are "offended" they may make arguments in defence of their deity and themselves, but to simply complain and whine about being described in such a way is rather petty and childish; it is simply not appropriate in the arena of intelligent debate.

Most of the racism I see here is the extremist hate towards people of European ethnicity. And in religion, there is an extremist amount of support for radical Islam, and a hate against anyone that is critical of it. That's what I see most.

The philosopher Ken Wilber said that 70 percent of humans are of a Nazi mentality. I now think he is correct.
When in the WORLD ARE WE GOING TO LEARN TO STOP HATING?
