About respect [View all] Starboard Tack May 2015 OP
Yes, fundamentalists of all stripes BainsBane May 2015 #1
First post on a thread about respect is a pot shot at nonbelievers. LostOne4Ever May 2015 #3
No, just the ones who refuse to accept BainsBane May 2015 #4
My assumption was that you tried to come up with a word LostOne4Ever May 2015 #5
I think the word is apt BainsBane May 2015 #7
Misogynists calling women H******cal or the B word think it is apt. LostOne4Ever May 2015 #8
Again, you resort to projection BainsBane May 2015 #58
Again you misrepresent what I say LostOne4Ever May 2015 #60
Great posts BB Starboard Tack May 2015 #115
If by kick butt you mean repeatedly misrepresent LostOne4Ever May 2015 #119

Oh, do grow up. mr blur May 2015 #54
Every human being is worthy of respect BainsBane May 2015 #57
Nice moving the goal posts there Lordquinton May 2015 #59

Actually, the OP itself was a full broadside at nonbelievers. AtheistCrusader May 2015 #84
Oh I beleive you LostOne4Ever May 2015 #130
Well said! hrmjustin May 2015 #24
Et tu Brute? (Nt) LostOne4Ever May 2015 #62
Sorry but it is not the the theists here who mock my faith. hrmjustin May 2015 #63
No but your side is hardly innocent. beam me up scottie May 2015 #69
True but you don't see me mocking atheism. hrmjustin May 2015 #71
I've seen you post plenty of nasty things about atheists. beam me up scottie May 2015 #72
But not atheism. hrmjustin May 2015 #73
How is that better? beam me up scottie May 2015 #77
I do not mock them for not believing. hrmjustin May 2015 #78
"I mock members here because they mock me." beam me up scottie May 2015 #79
Oh I am not a victim. hrmjustin May 2015 #80

Everyone on DU mocks beliefs. beam me up scottie May 2015 #90
I think most of the posters who post here regularly are non-believers. hrmjustin May 2015 #91
Do you disagree that everyone mocks beliefs? beam me up scottie May 2015 #93
Yes we all do. hrmjustin May 2015 #95
I don't click on threads bashing animal rights activists for a reason. beam me up scottie May 2015 #99

Lol! rug May 2015 #128
As I asked BB LostOne4Ever May 2015 #124
Why is it ok to call atheists fundantalists and the other names? hrmjustin May 2015 #136
Have I called theists names? (nt) LostOne4Ever May 2015 #137
I am not talking about you but in general. hrmjustin May 2015 #139
I don't think so. That is why I don't use terms you don't like to refer to you or others LostOne4Ever May 2015 #142
Your a great poster and civil. hrmjustin May 2015 #144
At times, but at other times I do I bear my teeth LostOne4Ever May 2015 #148
Lmfao! hrmjustin May 2015 #149
Non-belief has nothing fundamental to adhere to. phil89 May 2015 #203
"Why do they hate those who are tolerant and accepting of all" beam me up scottie May 2015 #2
"...you have the right to believe whatever strikes your fancy." bvf May 2015 #6
Your right to believe anything is OK Starboard Tack May 2015 #13
Oh, I understand the difference. bvf May 2015 #18
What do you propose to do about someone who believes that? rug May 2015 #19
The question wasn't directed to you. bvf May 2015 #22
No one here is anti-lgbt and we fight against it in our places of worship and communities. hrmjustin May 2015 #23
Yes or no? bvf May 2015 #25
As a gay man I do not support or respect anti gay beliefs. hrmjustin May 2015 #26
No. bvf May 2015 #28
i gave you my answer and it was rather clear. hrmjustin May 2015 #29
Amazing. bvf May 2015 #31
Yes or no what? hrmjustin May 2015 #37
Cripes. bvf May 2015 #40
No it is not ok with me. hrmjustin May 2015 #42
"With me." bvf May 2015 #48
No. They have the right to their opinions but their opinions are not ok with me. hrmjustin May 2015 #49
Do they have the right to act based on those opinions? bvf May 2015 #51
No. Our laws say murder is wrong. hrmjustin May 2015 #52
No they don't. bvf May 2015 #56
Forgive me they say it is illegal. hrmjustin May 2015 #64
Explain capital punishment. bvf May 2015 #74

How about no or yes? hrmjustin May 2015 #104
Very clever. Time for a nap. bvf May 2015 #111
Enjoy your nap. hrmjustin May 2015 #112
Public board. Now you can answer my question. rug May 2015 #30
No you didn't bvf May 2015 #33
I did. That hate is protected speech. So it's "ok". Are you "ok" with the First Amendment? rug May 2015 #34
Yes or no? bvf May 2015 #36
I'm sorry you simultaneously can not read what's in your face rug May 2015 #96
I cannot parse this. bvf May 2015 #100
Unsurprising. rug May 2015 #101
Still looking for a simple yes or no. bvf May 2015 #105
Three times. rug May 2015 #106
Still waiting. bvf May 2015 #107

Still waiting. bvf May 2015 #109
Stil evading. rug May 2015 #116
Still waiting. bvf May 2015 #117
I suppose that's much more productive than reading the answer posted hours ago. rug May 2015 #118
Still waiting. bvf May 2015 #120
And there's another! rug May 2015 #121
Still waiting. bvf May 2015 #122
Well, Estragon, shall we go? rug May 2015 #123

No. Still waiting. bvf May 2015 #138
He answered your questions. hrmjustin May 2015 #140
No, he didn't. I have yet to get a simple yes or no. bvf May 2015 #145
Your not a prosecutor and he is not the accused. hrmjustin May 2015 #147
I'm asking a question bvf May 2015 #150
No what you are doing is acting like a prosecutor and we are not your accused. hrmjustin May 2015 #151
Does God exist? Yes or no. bvf May 2015 #152
Yes I believe God exists. hrmjustin May 2015 #153
"Life is more than a yes or no." bvf May 2015 #154
Are you going to keep going on about rug? hrmjustin May 2015 #155
Well, bvf May 2015 #159
Well if you wish to constantly repeat the same thing... hrmjustin May 2015 #160
He's badgering the witness. okasha May 2015 #156
lmfao! I wonder if he knew that. hrmjustin May 2015 #157
Tim Misny is an attorney. bvf May 2015 #166
Curtain. rug May 2015 #141
Still waiting. bvf May 2015 #143
"Dammit, y'don't go!" okasha May 2015 #158
Thanks for joining in. bvf May 2015 #161
I already answered your question, hours ago. okasha May 2015 #162
. hrmjustin May 2015 #163
What's your point? bvf May 2015 #167
My point is that you don't have one. okasha May 2015 #174
You don't wear it well, IMO. bvf May 2015 #178
You still haven't answered rug's question. okasha May 2015 #179
So what? bvf May 2015 #180
... okasha May 2015 #181
Something about a prosecutor bvf May 2015 #183
Is the belief OK.? No Starboard Tack May 2015 #39
Excuse me, but I don't see any insults here. bvf May 2015 #43
I gave you an answer. hrmjustin May 2015 #45
You have a right to believe any assholish thing you want to. okasha May 2015 #76
Are you fucking serious? bvf May 2015 #184

I'm not asking you. bvf May 2015 #187
No I am asking you, hrmjustin May 2015 #188
You can read, right? bvf May 2015 #189
I was going to ask the same of you. hrmjustin May 2015 #190
Very. okasha May 2015 #191
WTF? bvf May 2015 #193
You're the one declaring that certain thoughts okasha May 2015 #195
I never said any such thing, and you know it. bvf May 2015 #196
Look at your post replying to mine okasha May 2015 #197
I gave up. hrmjustin May 2015 #198
It's a well-established MO by now. okasha May 2015 #199
It is pointless to bother because when you answer a question you are told you didn't and hrmjustin May 2015 #201
That's typically your approach. bvf May 2015 #212
No i gave up because you were telling me that I didn't answer a question when I did. hrmjustin May 2015 #213
Heh. bvf May 2015 #214

Thanks for continuing to re-post that. Starboard Tack May 2015 #41
Disingenuous nonsense and insulting people's intelligence are also not signs of respect skepticscott May 2015 #46
On the contrary. I stand by my posts Starboard Tack May 2015 #113

But how can one respect a belief that ensures another feels terror brought on by someone AuntPatsy May 2015 #44
An observation in passing through: edgineered May 2015 #47
I have seen far more disrespect (at DU) directed from non-theists guillaumeb May 2015 #53
Again, ideologies must be challenged Yorktown May 2015 #182
My point, heretofore unaddressed, guillaumeb May 2015 #192
Some people have zero interest in fostering understanding and furthering conversation, cbayer May 2015 #194
You want to foster 'conversations' which are not grounded in fact. Yorktown May 2015 #205
Trouble is, your point has already been addressed. More times than I care to count. Act_of_Reparation May 2015 #200
If this were targeting shooting, guillaumeb May 2015 #207
As it turns out, I'm a pretty good shot. Act_of_Reparation May 2015 #208
An interesting attempt to frame and characterize my argument. guillaumeb May 2015 #210
Do I need to show you the straw man gif again? Act_of_Reparation May 2015 #211
To answer your point, it takes two to tango. Yorktown May 2015 #204

Would I have to award prizes? guillaumeb May 2015 #221
There really isn't a need for one, is there? beam me up scottie May 2015 #223
As is clearly demonstrated in this thread Starboard Tack May 2015 #229
I have no argument with that. guillaumeb May 2015 #230

What about ridiculing mormons? beam me up scottie May 2015 #232

Homophobes who compare ssm to bestiality and call people "vermin" shouldn't criticize anyone beam me up scottie May 2015 #218
And then there are those who simply make shit up about other posters skepticscott May 2015 #220
I'm sure they pray about it. beam me up scottie May 2015 #222
