Sh*t. I guess I should tell my parents that I hate them then, huh?

Also, what don't you get about race vs. religion? One you're born with. One you're taught.

Both are rights in the Constitution, infringement on either is hate, and just so everyone doesn't start rants on this next topic no I do not hate black folks or gay people, who you sleep with is your choice.

What about man boobs? I was neither born with them nor taught that they are unacceptable. Yet, Fiz wants to kill me because I have them.

what's historically been more hypocritical than religion?

Any man who values his word as his standard and has either failed or not met expectations could be labled a hypocrite, me, you, the President, Godzilla, and Dora the Explorer (especially her i'm waiting for here to forget that stupid backpack one day)

the constitution defends a person's right to hate religions too so long as they don't infringe on someone else's rights to practice said religion. I can hate blacks, hispanics, and fine young males all day if I want to. Infringement is hate, but hate is not infringement.

Okay everyone I think misses the point, by constantly talking about how much you dislike someone, constantly, not once or even occasionally but at any moment you see an opening, it's friggin hate.

My original analogy was that if it was directed at race not religion, specifically Christians (there's a little inkling inside that some of you would be upset about Muslim hate speech), everyone would be up in arms and that said poster would be promptly banned.

I hope UNCC's attempt to get football fails.

usually when everyone misses the point, you did a shitty job of conveying that point.

I explained it twice in two different ways, I think the majority of people here keep they're "special glasses" on to see religion when it's presented to them.

I can't help but feel like we've gone over this.

Criticizing someone for being black, for instance, is bigotry because it is not a choice to be black. I tend to think that argument goes for gays as well because that's not a choice either, but whatever. Let's not confuse things too much.

Criticizing, or more realisically "questioning," someone for being Christian isn't bigotry because that's a choice they have made consciously and subsequently should have reasons why they believe the things they do. Just because people don't accept your stance that Jesus isn't the son of God is not us being mean to you. And it certainly isn't the same thing as criticizing someone for their skin color.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
