115. No, religion is not like sexuality
Religion is a choice. Sexuality is not.

So please leave that red herring out of this.

'Intolerance of religion' would be an attempt to stop someone holding a religious view. Criticising, or mocking, the view is not 'intolerance'. You are still perfectly at liberty to believe in gods, and to proclaim your belief, and to try to persuade others to hold your view. But others are at liberty to say they don't, and to give reasons why, and try to persuade others to their view.

When you mock a Republican, do you think you're being hypocritical because you think moving people's beliefs is wrong?
