Did you even read my post?<quoted text>Nobody has to justify to someone else what public stances they choose to take or why
Often this is a tactic when people want to engage in fake moral outrage.
The last person to use this tactic on this same subject was later trying to justify their own Internet buddies and proceeded to explain to me how calling someone a "filthy gay liar" is not a problem as far as how "gay" is used in progression with other insults so long as it is true. They went on to compare it to calling someone "a good Christian man" and asking if i would take the use of "Christian" in that context as an insult. The person who claimed it was not bigotry to call someone a "filthy gay liar" also claims to be gay themselves. Of course all of this stemmed from an ill-advised and disingenuous attempt to justify a similar yet equally bigoted claim of "filthy Christian liar" by IANS
So it is a little hard to take these claims seriously. And even if someone were too, they shouldn't.
Do you think someone has the right to demand you express your views publicly?
Do you think its ethical if they have seen you speak up before and now ask in a different venue caring more about driving a wedge between people than any actual concern over someone's public moral stance?
Why do you not chastise fellow unbelievers for bigoted statements against those of faith? Surely you are not only responsible for what anyone else says but it is also your public duty to rebuke them every time right?
This tactic is as hypocritical as it is dishonest. Other people have a right to their opinion. When you ask it and then don't like it that is your problem, not theirs. And nobody has to monitor or approve of what others say when expressing their opinions. They also don't have to agree with everyone else's opinions either and their silence on it implies neither support or opposition.
All due respect but these tactics are old and transparent. PW was willing to go along because she is a generally nice person. Me, I don't mind calling bullcrap for what it is. And trying to use morality as a club is bull crap and no different than the very thing you claim to be against
You're attempting to declare war on a post that said "I won't bother you."
