185. Ad homs indeed.
I am neither intolerant or bigoted, but I do disagree with you. Apparently that makes me a bigot in your eyes.

No, refusing to accept someone's own perception of themselves but instead forcing YOUR perception on to them is what makes you a bigot in my eyes.

Pretty simple, actually.

There is no need to save face, kwassa. This is not about "defeating" you, this is about trying to get you to stop defining people as you see fit, especially when it is contrary to how they WANT to be defined. Learn and grow as a progressive, won't you?

It does not excuse such behavior to claim it's just a different opinion. After all, some people have the opinion that homosexuals should be executed, or that black people shouldn't have civil rights.

Sorry, but you haven't even dented my position.

What the heck is your position, anyway? That your definition of atheism is better than what atheists are telling you?
