Comparing gay people to Nazis isn't a very Christian thing to do. But what can you expect from hypocrite bigot "Christians" who cry "victim" when they're not allowed to spew out thier self righteous bigotry?

We're going to hear more sick, lying bigots wailing about how they're the real victims, but actually when people reject the kkk that doesn't make those people the bigots.

No editor of a newspaper could say on a personal blog how fundie christianists are mentally ill gestapo members and keep a journalism job.(You know, stating that as a matter of non fundie religious belief....)

It doesn't work that way in journalism, where you can fired for so much as giving money to a political candidate.

Organized religion has gotten a free ride for so many years because they were generally neutral in their political views. Growing up in the USA, I remember churches and religious organizations doing badly-needed humanitarian services in their respective communities.
However now, it's a different animal.
Presently, religious groups, particularly christians are no different than a political action committee (PAC). That alone should remove them from any tax exemption or special consideration by the US government. If this is the game they want to play, then they can NEVER play the 'discrimination' card again.
So, if you bigots want to influence policy and force your beliefs on others, then don't call yourselves 'religious' people. And since you've already divided and crippled the GOP, you might as well create your own political party anyway. How about the jesus party ... has a nice ring to it. And I'm sure you'll get all of the votes you deserve.

He has a right to his unfortunate choice of his religious beliefs, but as editor in chief, his is seen as the opinion of his employers and they have a right to disassociate themselves from both him and his beliefs.

You BIGOTS always try to hide behind freedom of speech and religion, so what else is new? Hate is hate, no matter how much you try to sugar coat it.

Naturally you're not speaking about this case, which would be just as clearcut has the idiot ex editor similarly voiced such an opinion on any other controversy in the news.

And what you're talking about is the long tradition of "religious" freeeks imposing their beliefs on others in a non theocracy. That tradition has come under review. Now all of a sudden it's the jaysus people who are the _real_ victims - it's getting harder for them to discriminate in places of public accommodation.

You're very sick, always remember that.

Neither this editor's free speech nor his religious freedom have been challenged or infringed in the least.

The right to freedom of speech doesn't guarantee anyone a job. No one's religion calls on them to turn away select customers. You are describing things which simply aren't so.

Sweetie, no one is trying to deny this clown his free speech or religion, he's free to say and believe whatever nonsense he wants. But as Editor in Chief of his employer's paper, his voice is theirs and given the crap this guy has chosen to believe, their disassociating themselves from him, well within their rights.

You BIGOTS use religion to justify your hatred of gay people, and squeal "freedom of speech" when you're reminded that it's wrong. WHAT ELSE IS NEW? You simply can't stand the thought of gays having the same rights as everyone else, and are crying like little babies over gay marriage and civil rights. Better stock up on Kleenex, a**hole, because we won't quit until we've achieved FULL EQUALITY.

The newspaper publisher fired the stone age talibangelical, not the lgbt community. And did so properly based on usual practices in journalism. The ex editor would have been fired for doing the same thing about any group or issue.

You troll.

Really? which one of these is he practicing?

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned. "Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure-- pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return."…

“‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

Jesus replied:“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it:‘Love your neighbor as yourself.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

**********

I am saddened that you have taken the teachings of forgiveness given us by the Prince of Peace and changed them into making lists about the failings of your neighbors.

Good Luck Come Judgement Day (Matt. 25:31-46)
May God be merciful to you for your perversion of His Son's work.

You're record is 0-25.

Even a rat is smart enough to leave a sinking ship.

Perhaps you should arrange some tutoring.
