Hi John, I can't back down just yet. The original argument was about discrimination toward gays in this country. My retort was that blacks were horribly wronged and I didn't think any discrimination in this country was equal to that, overall.
If we want to take it globaly that's a different matter.
You never wrote the terms "..in this country."

Way to squirm out of, once again, a poorly written argument.

Good afternoon "Ink!"
:)
I see, once again, you're in the thick of a "spirited" discussion.
My friend, I assure you that it pains me to do so, but I fear you're in error here...
"Playa's" post, to which you replied, originally read;
"Discrimination is discrimination is discrimination. Gays are killed for being gay, whites are killed for being white, and blacks are killed for being black. People are killed because their killers were bored. Doctors are killed because of the procedure they perform. Women are killed because they didn't get someone a beer fast enough. Christians are killed because they preach tolerance in countries which don't have any.
None of these things is okay."
http://www.topix.com/forum/nyc/T833PCEP80MM49...
Your immediate reply was;
"Exactly, but wholesale discrimination of blacks for two hundred and fifty years does hold a more prominent place in history then anyone else."
http://www.topix.com/forum/nyc/T833PCEP80MM49...
So, while you were focusing on a more "Localized" form of discrimination, "Playa," was originally being a tad more "Globalized."
All you need do now is say, "Hey, sorry, I screwed up. I didn't expect this sort of Spanish Inquisition!"
To which we can all gleefully reply...
"NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!"

My friend, I was just "razzin'" ya.
I know it is difficult to discern humor/sarcasm sometimes online.
;P
Honestly, I didn't back-track that far to see where the discussion originated.
That said, while your argument does indeed have some validity with regards to the history of our country, once the argument spills past our borders, it does seem to pale in comparison to some others.
The most obvious, of course, being the Jews...
Now, that said, while "Playa's" post didn't explicitly state "global" persecution, it was implied and I think that's why everyone's "pouncing" on you for your reply to her.
Take it with a "grain-of-salt."
;)
Best,
John.
John, it is par for the course to take a discussion in another direction when you lose the original argument. Enough of that anyway. I sure don't want to argue about who treated who the worst in history. Good to see you.

I want to buy the book 'Zealot but after seeing a short blurb from the author, I don't think I am going to like what he has to say.

The content was about discrimination of gays when someone won't take their pictures or make a cake for their wedding and the discrimination of blacks over the past hundred and fifty years. And how they compared.

It could be that people won't take pictures at a gay wedding in other parts of the world or that blacks were segregated somewhere else. I'm sure this is going on but I was concentrating on America even though someone else was focused out of the country.

Therefore, the discussion was more all-encompassing than just the US.
Ink makes up all the rules for these conversations, don't you know that by now?

Glad to see you back btw.

Then I guess the American Indians take the prize for the worst screwing. Hmmm...wonder who did that to them...

No, it really wasn't. YOU are just trying to pretend that's what we were all talking about because you know you were wrong. Period.

Don't you think it's pretty sad that there are people who won't make someone a cake or take pictures of their celebrations just because the celebrants are gay?

The point from the other side was that gays were the most discriminated against.

Okay so how does the persecution in the rest of the world like the 200 who were shot today at a mall in Kenya because they weren't Muslims compare with a couple being refused by someone to take their picture or make a ke for them?

Be glad to have this conversation.

I do want to say, Ink, thank you. I looked up Zealot and read about the author, the reviews, too. Seems interesting. You should buy it. I think I will.

I believe this sermon from playa was the beginning of the discussion. I don't see overseas mentioned anywhere.

Persecution of, and discrimination against, gays, is not a right.

Nor is denying one the legal ability to persecute, persecution.

"I realize these are difficult concepts for folks that are used to doing the persecuting...tough. Wrap your mind around this:

Your freedom to worship as you please, does not constitute the freedom to discriminate against others. Worship whatever you want - but if you choose to discriminate against those of whose sexual orientation you disapprove, you will reap the consequences, just like anyone else."

I will be interesting to see his guesses about Jesus.

He said

"I disagree. I think if you place Jesus firmly in the historical context ... you can make very educated hypotheses and guesses about how he lived."

Of course I've had enough attention. That's one way of getting out of admitting you were wrong.

You have a very real problem admitting you may have been in err, don't you ? Fascinating.
