Boom, boom, out go the lights. (UPDATED)(AGAIN)

Reason for PPR...

Posted an ex-gay conversion story with parts about homosexuality being a sin edited out. When called on it, did not see anything wrong with the article. http://www.democraticunderground.com/121868411 Deleted posts on DU2 include other intolerant statements, including this gem: "One may oppose interracial marriage for cultural or religious reasons. I am not defending this only pointing out that being opposed to interracial marriage does not automatically make you a racist. Regarding opposition to gay marriage. It is quite easy to make a legitimate argument that opposing it, is based on principles, not homophobia."



Update:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=profile&uid=236162

Reason for PPR...

Feb 10, 2013 Homophobic comments.



Interesting observation to ponder...

Both were shown the door for homophobic comments, the second only started commenting after the first one was gone AFAIK...

Coincidence?

1. Anothet pray away the gay

Fail. This crap is really what makes baby Jesus cry. Intolerance and harsh judgement are not a Christian or community standard.

2. I don't believe I'm alone in saying, "IT'S ABOUT FUCKING TIME!"

Right-wing theocratic douchebag. Funny how we atheists had him pegged and called him out on his nonsense constantly.

28. that really annoys me that defending child rape is ok here

 

i haven't been able to go into some threads and am thinking about using the 'ignore' feature on someone except i like the way a couple people cut off every avenue in public. i learn things. it bothers me that this one thinks they are the voice of reason but really just elaborate defense of the indefensible. does that make me a 'bigot' against realigion?

6. Proud to say that LARED was the first person banned from A&A

Took us about 3 minutes to figure out that he was a RW douchebag. It's unfortunate how much crap can be hidden behind the curtain of religion, even among liberals.

10. I posted a similar sentiment

in the Host forum a couple minutes ago. I can't believe the amount of hand wringing over there by the Religion hosts. The guy was a RW theocratic turd. That fact was pointed out a good deal of times. Oh, and

for the lurkers in here. I would imagine there is one person who has me on ignore that logs out so that she can read this.
to you, too.

20. Hand wringing? Really?

What defense could possibly be given for his actions and words? How could anyone who defended him be allowed to stay on as a host? or on DU?

"Building coalitions" is more important than just coming out and saying that some people are wrong, and who thinks that there are two equal sides to every issue.

3. Posts hidden by jury: 1

Does that tell you anything? This sort of talk has been tolerated too long here, as long as it is posted as a pro-religion thread.

People like this do not give the Christians at DU a good reputation when they put up with it.

And juries are mostly letting it go.

7. I did get a laugh out of this

"Rosaria," she said, "I was a Presbyterian minister for 15 years. I prayed that God would heal me, but he didn't. If you want, I will pray for you."
----------

That's when a perfectly sensible person would have said "no thanks, pal, seems your prayers are the kiss of death."

It should be pointed out to people in that thread that slavery was also based on principles, as was the genocide practiced by the Third Reich.

Some principles are simply hateful and destructive to humanity. Antigay bigotry is one of them.

Both LARED and HB got PPR'd for homophobic comments on the same day. Coincidence?

Or that may have just been the perfect thread to root out the real bigots in the room, and we got lucky. I noticed a few others who very carefully avoided taking part...

It was becoming dangerous for theists. Before the banning that thread was all good and proper. Go figure.
