  •  In fact they are proud of their stupidity (5+ / 0-)

    they just call it faith instead

    •  Again that is how you lose (3+ / 0-)

      They want you to attack their religion.  They want this issue framed totally as a religious freedom issue.  They want people who are religious totally focused on that argument.

      Oh,, it feels good to you to sneer at their religion.  And that is exactly what they want you to do.  They want all those believers out there to hear you mocking their belief in God.  That's exactly what they want.  Because that way they never hear any argument about healthcare, the rights of employees, the rights of women, nope, all they hear is you mocking their God.

      And that is why you lose -- because you are too lazy to make intelligent arguments appealing to the common sense of good people.  You are just so convinced that every person who believes in God is a fool that you won't bother trying to convince them on the merits.

      •  You attack them on religion (3+ / 0-)

        On the concept of someone being in control of someone else's rights based on a religious belief.  There are pockets of this country that are not majority Christian.  Perhaps an example of how it feels to be subject to someone else's religious beliefs would be useful.

        And yes, I know they trot out the old "christian nation" argument, but that doesn't wash in the courts.

        I can't wait for some of the less mainstream religions to come out of the woodwork trying to control their employees in this manner.  At some point, we're going to have a hypocrisy explosion.

        And by the way -

        Just because an argument is anti-religion doesn't mean it's not intelligent.  In fact, it's usually the reverse.  I don't mean to say it doesn't offend the religious, because it's obviously offended you, but that doesn't mean it's unintelligent.
