Quote# 131567

We are now in a country that is punishing people for standing up for their religious beliefs. Even at a school in America, kids were told not to display American flags. Next day all the kids' trucks were lined up with American flags on them. It is a plan that the progressive left has had for a long time to shut us down.

At universities speakers cannot talk if they are conservative. At Harvard last week, Barry Shapiro spoke and afterwards kids were offered counseling if it upset them.

I wonder if they offer counseling for the students who have had Howard Zinn shoved down their throats.

Since many people are leaving churches, I guess pastors are compromising.

Read Alinsky Rules...that is how they have done this to us, to shut us up and make it a crime to believe gay marriage is wrong or that you shouldn't bake a cake for someone's gay wedding, or you call a he a he instead of a she even though it is very clear it is a he. And now some are trying to criminalize saying climate change caused by man is a hoax. They want to put you in jail for using common sense and thinking.

I'll just address one item: climate change. That's science. Your idea of "common sense and thinking" is just an opinion, and the climate doesn't give a hoot about your opinion. You don't understand the science, so that's the very best reason to leave it to the scientists instead of making a fool of yourself with uninformed opinion.

Only if those beliefs are 'Everyone else must let me push my religious beliefs on them, because MY religious beliefs are THE ONLY TRUTH!!'

No you are not.

Have you NEVER studied history?

You have to deal with criticism. That isn't punishment. Punishment is if you're beaten, shot, or "disappeared." Having people call you a racist for your acting like a racist, on the other hand, is called "truth-telling" or, if you'd prefer, "discourse." If that word is too long for you, call it, "talk."

Question: Why hasn't your precious 'Emprah' pardoned Kim Il-Davis...?!

Nazis are homophobic.

Here in the UK, since late last year, Nazis are officially terrorists.

ISIS are homophobic too.

You want to be considered a terrorist pal, you go right ahead and continue to think the way you do.

Just as James Fields did.

You wouldn't know "sense" or "thinking" if it fucking bit you.

And then the next two things they talk about are people supposedly not being allowed to display American flags, and people not being allowed to speak at universities if they are conservative. Neither of those things is a "religious belief"!

@ KingOfRhye:

They're mixing religion with nationalism to appeal to a broader group, I think, and that silly trick is working.

You are NOW in a country? Have you moved?

No, you live in a country that punishes people for discriminating against others, and for infringing on other people's rights.

I call bullshit on being told not to display a flag. And, in what way is the flag "religious belief"?
If the plan was to remove flags, that plan failed spectacularly.

Shut who down? Bigoted fundies?

Do you mean "at universities, conservative speakers have to argue for their conservative viewpoint"? That's part of being an adult; handle criticism (more or less) gracefully.

Yeah, must be hard to have reality shoved down your throat, when all you wanted to digest was fake news.
Yeah again, people working together towards a better life for everyone must also be horrible for you.

The crime was spreading personal info about a gay couple on a homophobic website, which led to the couple getting death threats.
Can we call YOU by the wrong gender pronoun, again and again and again, and force YOU to use the wrong bathroom?
It's just common effing decency, you dolt! And no, spreading lies and misinformation is not a crime, but it's stupid and bad-mannered.

No, they want to "put you in jail" (i.e. they are criticizing you) for REFUSING to use common sense and thinking. There's not one iota of anything even slightly related to either in your post, you blithering idiot.
