To an intelligent, open-minded person who sincerely believes in pluralism, the entire Phil Robertson, Duck Dynasty incident should have nothing at all to do with where one stands on gay issues or what one thinks of the man's opinions, but whether we believe in freedom of speech or prefer intolerance and censorship.

Ok, then so I guess you are just not that familiar with logic? You don't know what a logical fallacy is?

It means your statement, offered for the purpose that it was, is neither valid nor true.

Just because some scientists are wrong about some things doesn't mean they are wrong about this. Saying so is logically fallacious.

Which you would know, if you had a decent education.

That's what the science says. Do you have anything better?
Science said that homosexuality was a mental disorder. A few members of an organization voted and then science said it wasn't. So much for science when it comes to homosexual issues.

Yes, and we once thought that the earth was flat.

Science corrects itself.

I find that prejudiced people rarely do.

Actually they're worse, since they claim the mantle of "tolerance" yet they are intolerant.

I already made an argument. The opposing "claim" wasn't based on any facts, just bigotry.

Why don't you try coming up with an argument instead of WHINING about people being called out for what they are?

Really? Who do gay people seek to make second-class citizens with lesser rights and protections?

Funny how you, Strel and others get on here and promote and endorse homosexuality like it's the next new version of X Box, then turn around and say, I'm not queer personally, but I love to su:ck a d!ck once in a while. Let me tell you, if it looks like a duck, sounds like a duck, acts like a duck, it's a fking DUCK.

Science didn't hold that the world was flat - that was a claim made by religion that was corrected by science.

Anyone who supports gay rights must be gay? I guess anyone who supported civil rights 50 years ago was black and anyone who supported women's suffrage 100 years ago was a woman.

Sorry, you're on the wrong side of history. You're the grandparent that all the kids will be ashamed of.

Sorry to disappoint you [email protected], but I'm not a grandparent. You left out something. According to queers, all people that disagrees with their beliefs, are bigots.

What beliefs!! Are you serious? Their beliefs that homosexuality is normal and ok.
That's not a belief any more than thinking wearing red clothes is normal and ok is a belief.
Ultimate Truth wrote:
Everyone has the right to their own beliefs without being labeled a bigot.
Not if they're being bigoted.

If someone believes black people are evil and should be treated like second-class citizens, are they immune to being called a bigot because they have a right to their belief?

Over the years science has been known to be wrong, a lot.
At least science is allowed to evolve. That's how we come up with better ideas and find the real ultimate truth about things. At least science doesn't end with faith. After people use the faith card, where can an idea go after that? Nowhere, it dies, it can't evolve into finding out what the real truth is. This is the reason we are not going to evolve into anything better than what we are now. I think ideas need to be able to evolve, then maybe (to quote Bill Hicks) "we can explore space together both inner and outer, forever in peace."

I think it's funny how people think freedom of speech is a freedom only they deserve. We certainly are a stupid race (the human race) and egotistical, too.

The word homophones was created solely to shut people up that don't agree with them.
