View Diary: I know you think praying at government events is normal, but it's really not. (302 comments)

  •  Your "example" is logically flawed. (0+ / 0-)

    I am a religious person
    I have never said I cannot vote for an atheist.
    Yet the diarist has said I have a brain disorder.

    So we may as well rewrite your example as:

    Religous person: Atheists have right to their beliefs
    Athiest responds:  Religious people have a brain disorder.
    Religious person: Quite(sic) being so hateful and intolerant.

    Actually you have pinpointed the exact problem with the diary. It makes broad generalization of diverse groups of people and characterizes them as brain damaged. It insults and demeans those people not based on what they individually have done but based on their identity with a group.

    That is bigotry.
