Intolerance…and asshats

  1. You know, the amount of intolerance in the world astounds me. And, I think many of these folks have these opinions/attitudes by default – they don't really think independantly about the issues, they just follow whatever tradition they've encountered through their upbringing and/or peer groups. People should use their own brains and form their own opinions. Live and let live. If it's not harming anyone, and certainly if it's helping, let it be!
    Nice rant – thanks for sharing!


  2. Sheeit. I'da been right there with you.

    The “haves” never, ever, ever, ever, want the “have nots” to gain ground.

    And I say we call every one of those fucking bigots out when they post stupidity in a public place.

    Good for you for doing it.


  3. Agreed! I just don't understand the thought process that goes behind these arguments. I mean, common sense seems to dictate that a kid who was previously in foster care would be better off in a loving home. But like you said, bigotry against homosexuals is a tradition (esp. in the black community). I'm with you, live and let live.


  4. @Tina, Thanks! I just find it very difficult to read stuff like that. It gets my back up immediately. And I know it's a futile argument because Asshats don't see the error in their ways and suddenly change their way of thinking but, jeez, I can't just let him come out and spout that filth and hatred without pointing it out for what it is.


  5. Seems to me the survey was agenda driven or it would have simply been adopted children instead of the way it read.I don't know about the results of the survey but I do know a child with 2 parents that love him/her is far better than any other situation regardless of the sex of the parents.


  6. I totally agree and that was the point *I* was making. However, the thread has now spiraled into all you sinners will know your wrongs when you meet your maker. Can't have an intelligent conversation with people like that. Common sense goes completely out of the window when you bring religion into the equation.


  7. The thing that people on both sides of any religious argument have to realize/remember that all religion is based on faith. So those with faith see it one way and those without see it another, and never the twain shall meet.

    It is stupid i my opinion to argue it either way. If you want to share your belif with another that is willing then go get em but I don't get how trying to force feed their belief or lack thereof to anyone has or will ever work.


  8. I'm not really concerned with making them believe the way I do. I just want them to see that this thing they believe in so wholeheartedly preaches intolerance and in some denominations, hatred. I can agree to disagree. I just don't understand why that makes me uneducated. I've read the bible, the torah and the koran (have all three making nice on my bookshelf). If I'm curious about something I don't take anyone's word for it. I actually do my homework. It pains me that these people follow so blindly and very few have actually taken the time to read the bible cover to cover.
