11. Lovely Rant Yourself
Normally cool progressive and liberal folks here on DU turn into quasi-religious zealots telling folks that their way is the only way and we have to punish those we don't agree with.....Does progress mean we keep eroding the rights of the person for the group? If so, I want no part of that. To me the price of freedom is accepting the fact that some folks will do things I don't like....Liberal used to mean freedom and diversity. Sadly, some here want to make it mean control of others for their own ideals.

Bless you, Straight-not much I can add to that, sober or not. I'll have something worthwhile to console me the next time I read another one of those dishearteningly fascistic proposals to demand the (tomb)stoning of every member not considered ideologically pure and compliant by the OP.
