so that belief is irrational.
Blah, blah, blah, this has what to do with bad poetry, Bachmann bashing, and homosexual hypocrisy?

Did I say that? I will say that I do not believe a person should use their belief in their god to deprive another of their right to live their life as they choose, so long as it does no harm to another. Bigotry is like porn, "I can't define it, but I know it when I see (hear) it". Paraphrased.

rationalization [rash&#8243;on-al-&#30 1;-za´shun]

An unconscious "defense mechanism" in which a person finds logical reasons (justification) for his or her behavior while ignoring the real reasons. It is a form of self-deception unconsciously used to make tolerable certain feelings, behaviors, and motives that would otherwise be unacceptable. Everyone uses rationalization at some time or other and in most instances it is a relatively harmless behavior pattern; the danger lies in deceiving oneself habitually so that eventually harmful or destructive behavior comes to be justified in one's mind.

Rationalize, rationalise [&#712;ræ&#643;&#6 01;n&#601;&#716;la &#618;z]

1. to justify (one's actions, esp discreditable actions, or beliefs) with plausible reasons, esp after the event
2.(Psychology) Psychol to indulge, often unchallenged, in excuses for or explanations of (behaviour about which one feels uncomfortable or guilty)
3. to apply logic or reason to (something)

Defense Mechanisms

Repression

Repression is another well-known defense mechanism. Repression acts to keep information out of conscious awareness. However, these memories don't just disappear; they continue to influence our behavior. For example, a person who has repressed memories of abuse suffered as a child may later have difficulty forming relationships.

Sometimes we do this consciously by forcing the unwanted information out of our awareness, which is known as suppression. In most cases, however, this removal of anxiety-provoking memories from our awareness is believed to occur unconsciously.

OBVIOUS TRAITS Persons experiencing a full-blown DRY DRUNK are, for that period, removed from the world of sobriety; they fail, for whatever reason, to accept the necessary conditions for sober living. Their mental and emotional homes are chaotic, their approach to everyday living is unrealistic, and their behavior, both verbal and physical, is unacceptable.

Well Woody, if you want to expand on what lies or proven falsehoods you are referring to, I might be able to move forward , but making generalize statements about religion and those who believe in religion and declaring them bigots because of their beliefs seems a little condescending

What would be a more acceptable belief to deprive someone of living a life you personally disapprove of?
