    You must suffer from severe selective reading. a person who strongly and unfairly dislikes other people, ideas, etc.

    If you dislike Agent J simply because he exists then yes you are a bigot.

    Might be, but doesn't make sense. From what has been posted in this thread any political donation in California of $1K or more is recorded and made public. So why would the IRS have to release any information if it's public already?

    No, I do I strongly dislike Agent J and I get called a Bigot. Because that's the definition you are gonna use.. then EVERYBODY is a bigot and it's a null and void term for a debate. It's akin to calling someone a Nazi in a debate because they disagree with you. So the LBGT community are being bigots over Mozilla, right?


    Bigot to me is a person who is WHOLLY devoted to prejudices. The fmr CEO of Mozilla was not a bigot. There is no evidence of him preventing anybody from the LBGT community from working at Mozilla or any evidence that he called anybody a derogatory name. So you have nothing on him but a moral opinion.

    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

    I don't think that many really want conformity of opinion and I think they want safety from the actions that be come from those opinions.

    Chrome has an excellent engine (perhaps even the best). The privacy considerations of its add-ons are, however, utterly monstrous. The type of people who make add-ons for Mozilla tend to be more privacy-conscious.

    I believe many *think* they want conformity of opinion to ensure certain actions, but it's a big mistake. And giving money to a PAC is not an unsafe act.

For the part of my argument you aren't getting is Marriage won't exist as a legal accepted form of relationship. Only Civil Unions will.
    I'm sure that this compromise resolution to the issue is one that many would welcome. Unfortunately, I don't think the LGBT community would. This leads me to believe that their issue isn't the real one on their agenda, but rather window dressing to gain public sympathy for their 'cause'. Might it be the other side effects of SSM that are their real agenda? I wonder.

    Well, yes, if we lowered our claimed moral standards to that of the Democrats, then we would certainly be caught much less often than we or the Democrats now are, violating our respective claimed standards.

    But unlike those on the wrong, we on the right find more value in aspiring to higher standards, even if we occasionally fall short of them, than on setting our standards so low as to think that we needn't challenge ourselves at all to meet them. I think it is certainly clear which approach leads to better results.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
