Just a question i have, Atheists and Homosexuals expect us to be "tolerant" of them, when we are. we just believe it's wrong. But yet, they are not tolerant of ours. we don't start Christian parades and harass and pillage homosexuals homes, do we?

Your OP shows how long you've had your blinders on. You're to the point where no matter what was said you'd maintain your point of view, regardless of utterly wrong and ridiculous it is.

I didn't ask to get insulted, just looking for a good debate. So your statement isn't appropriate. And OP?

He didn't insult you. If he insulted you there would be an insult there, he merely stated his opinion in a way you disagree with, that does not constitute an insult.

OP = Original Post

Well... people of like mind do infringe upon the rights of homosexuals, so I wouldn't call that tolerant. As for atheists... what exactly do they do to show intolerance?

Also, those Jehovah Witnesses are pretty harassing at times :P

I can't speak for the ones who took it to the extreme. But at the same time, I don think you can speak trough the people throughout history, and even people today [ mostly in other countries ] simply because they're Christian.

Then why I've the word "we" when speaking of such, if you are not ready to defend everything through the ages? You can not pick and choose which parts to like.

In what way is this a response to anything I said?

1) Use quotes
2) What the hell are you talking about?

Christians (I'm not saying you necessarily) try and have put laws in place based those religious beliefs. They have pushed their beliefs on others in the form of emotional threats, and even physical violence.

With homosexuality, They want equal rights. They want to marry who they love. If it was just a matter of you thinking it was wrong and allowed them to live their life, there would be no issue. Those parades started because of them being treated as criminals for feeling the way they feel.

With Atheists, we don't believe what you believe. We don't want to live under your doctrines and your dogma. The creation of blue laws force that on us. We see horrible acts done in the past directly because of religious beliefs. Atheists often are banned from things they shouldn't be solely for not believing in any religion, thus creating an inequality.

If it was just Christians thinking it was wrong, homosexuals wouldn't have had parades, wouldn't feel afraid to come out, would be able to marry who they love. Atheists, the very term would likely not even exist the same way we don't have a term  for those who don't believe in fairies.
