    To my point above. Here you are being an asshat and intolerant because people believe differently than you do. And just a couple posts ago you were calling christians douchebags for doing it. Be sure to avoid mirrors.

    Do you pay any attention to your own actions? You detest Christians who act like dicks. How about athiest who act like dicks? Or are they somehow exempt?

Asshats who believe they are right and anyone who believes differently applies universally. You may not notice that some athiests who do the exact same crap as some christians. Or you may be one of the countless people who do notice and laugh at it and then jump online and whine when others do it with your beliefs.
    If "mocking" constitutes "discrimination" then everybody is guilty of discrimination.

    Which, of course, is precisely the point: to expand the definition of discrimination so broadly that even the discussion is worthless.

    Can you bold or highlight where I said mocking constituted discrimination? I was replying to his comments in his post. I really dont see the point in you quoting me and acting like I said something that I didnt. If you want to discuss what I actually posted, please try again. If you don't, then don't quote me and make random statements.

    It's more about the hypocrisy inherent in being a Christian dick... You don't need a juxtaposition or comparison to other belief systems, it's self contradictory all on its own..

    People mock others' beliefs? Right here on this forum? How can that be?

    Must be a bunch of silly liberals or something.

    Why is hypocrisy when Christians do it but not others? We setting 2 different standards for some reason?

    For example:

    Christian mocks Athiest for having different beliefs = them being a dick (and i agree)
    Athiest mocks Christan for having different beliefs = Ok, funny, acceptable to some of you.

    Why is that?

    The only thing I can think of is you think it is wrong for people to be intolerant and mock your beliefs, but it is ok for you to do it to others because you are oh so super special.

    (I dont mean you personally since I haven't seen you doing it, I mean that last statement more for those who actively do it on here and there are plenty).

    You're right, I got the signals crossed. My bad.

If this was a black man spit on at a confederate flag ralley, no one would see it as anything other than discrimination.
    The ACLJ is a rightwing Christian "social activism" organisation, fighting the good fight, several lawsuits at a time. Of course they go out and complain about discrimination, it's what they do. And they lose a lot too, because loss of undeserved privilege isn't discrimination, it's being forced to live as the growing non-Christian minority do.
