77. Wow, it is like Global warming denial. Don't look for the answer and you won't find it.
And I never looked down my nose, only discussed definitions. I care because words have meanings. Whether we are discussing atheism and religion, the redefinition of liberal to equal communist/fascist/socialist, or the easy way words are redefined, it harms discourse. In order to communicate clearly, we need to know what words we use, because those words have power.

Funny, I discussed the definition words, not the label people put on themselves. I discussed how redefining words takes the meaning out of a discussion.

You then decide to label me as intolerant. It seems, that you must be enjoying the view down the end of your nose, since you resorted to labels rather than definitions.
