(Townhall)   Gays should tolerate homophobic intolerance, and Martin Luther King Jr. would have never supported picketing or protesting a discriminatory business. This is what fundamentalists actually believe   (townhall.com) divider line 416

So basically, "stop being mean to me for being mean to you."

aka, the bully's defense

Won't click so I'll assume that TownHall is appealing to Dr. King and his followers' noted love of fried chicken.

The only way a country as large and heterogenous as ours can survive is if we are willing to tolerate beliefs and assumptions we don't share (trust me, conservatives have to do it every day whenever we turn on MSM or go to the movies).

those beliefs are based not on mindless antipathy, but rather on centuries of Christian religious teaching.

Sorry, I'm not seeing the difference.

Oh, and by the way, you farkers are constantly facing beliefs and assumptions you don't share because your equivalent beliefs and assumptions are almost unanimously hateful, ignorant, indefensible, and just plain stupid.

So maybe you'd be less OPPRESSED if you weren't so stupid. Can you work on that?

The stance reflects no hatred or unreasoning fear of gay people (i.e., "homophobia"); it has simply been (and remains) part of many people's mainstream religious belief in this country for as long as it has existed -- and freedom of conscience must and should be respected here.

"I don't HATE or FEAR gay people. I just feel like it cheapens MY ambitions if they can reach theirs, and I think it would be better if they didn't exist."

FARK your dumb conscience. It isn't working.

Let's be fair, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. probably did frown on homosexuality, as many African-Americans still do.

It just doesn't change a farking thing about the argument, what's right, and why it's perfectly reasonable to boycott Chik-Fil-A.

Allowing other people to enjoy the same rights you do does not in any way make those rights less. Unless you are afraid that by finally having equal rights those people will finalyou've able to do someone about how you've treated them and you are afraid on having to face responsibility for your actions.

I hate it when I'm forced to turn on the MSM and go to the movies. All I want to do is stay home and read my Karl Marx and my Koran and grow pot and give gay people abortions, but I'm forced to go see bad movies and watch CNN.

"Look. I just believe that you are awful people for being gay and you're going to burn in hell for the love that you have for each other. Why can't you just accept that about me and love me anyway? Tolerance, brother. Tolerance."

Correct me if I'm wrong, aren't these whining conservatives the same people who were boycotting KETCHUP in 2004?

It's doubtful that Martin Luther King would support boycotting a business, just because the owner is an out-spoken Christian.

SkinnyHead: It's doubtful that Martin Luther King would support boycotting a business, just because the owner is an out-spoken Christian.


Because we should all look to you for insights into Dr. King.

Can someone remind me how many years those tolerant "live and let live" Christians boycotted Disney?

It would be wrong for people to picket businesses that choose to support gay marriage; it is likewise wrong to picket a bakery because its owner doesn't want to bake a cake for the ceremony (especially when there are many, many other bakeries happy to oblige).

People protest businesses all the time. If you don't like bakeries that bake gay marriage wedding cakes, go ahead and picket them. And everyone will know you're a bigot. That's your actual issue... you don't want people protesting bigotry because you can't protest back, you know you're in the wrong here.

Here's the thing, dipshiat, there's a difference between "I have to see things I don't like" and discrimination. If that same baker didn't believe in interracial marriage and wouldn't bake a cake for an interracial marriage, people would picket his business. And, "Well, I still bake cakes for the blacks, I just don't support them marrying whites" isn't a defense.

You must be tolerant of my intolerance! Meanwhile, conservatives have a coronary over a multi-colored oreo, target hiring Ellen, or two dozen other "homos are bad" situations where their outrage is a-ok.

Stop whining about being oppressed.

OK - so protesting and boycotting homophobic businesses is bad because it infringes on their right to do business however and wherever they want, ESPECIALLY on the part of a city, etc.

BUT - protesting and preventing things like gay bars, bath houses, bookstores, etc. is perfectly OK because they don't have the "right" to do business however and wherever they want.

Can someone explain how this works?

The new homophobe christian hotness is saying they are being tolerant, because the bible says that gays should be put to death and they're not doing that.
 
2012-07-31 01:44:58 PM  
This is a clumsy and transparent move in their desire to drive a wedge between blacks and gays. I forget which pathetic piece of Republican trash said it, but one of them openly claimed this as a goal not long ago.

Indeed. The owner would also have to be using that Christianity as an unconscionable attempt to excuse antiquated bigotry as having been ordained by God.

Sure: Peaceful protest against things you don't agree with is bad. Using the organs of the state to wage violence, including murder and mass property destruction, against things you don't like is good.

So what happens if same sex marriage is legalized and it turns out they have a much lower divorce rate than hetrosexuals? How will the Gingriches and Limbaughs explain that one when babbling on about the sanctity of marriage?

If Jesus came back, they would attack him for living on the streets, feeding the poor, hanging out with lepers, defending prostitutes, and label him a Liberal Commie Socialist Who Hates the Rich before crucifying him again.
