    Wrong meaning factually incorrect or fighting against current scientific knowledge.

    Harmful meaning having no value and hurting others.

    Decent people tend to not want to associate with bad people.

    Yeah, instead of tolerating the fact that my executive assistant was a liberal atheist lesbian Jew, I should have just fired her because her anti-Christmas views were harmful to our company's annual Christmas Party.
    Were they?

      So...firing somebody over their personal convictions wouldn't qualify as "hurting others" how?

        Firing someone for incompetence would qualify as hurting others. My definitions are a package deal.

          Right.

          So since atheism is a view that is factually incorrect, of no value, and harmful to other people if you're arguing for it, given that those who hold to it end up in hell, does that mean I can be intolerant of prozelytizing atheists?



          Oh right, you probably only meant views that you and your ilk consider wrong and harmful.

            Ah, so Christian beliefs are "factually incorrect or fighting against current scientific knowledge"? If this is true, then am I correct in assuming that you support discrimination on the basis of personal religious beliefs in general?

            You appear to be using the phrase "hurting others" extremely selectively.

              Absolutely. But I chose to tolerate her. Because I believe in tolerance, not just PRETENDING to be tolerant so I can whoop up on those who don't agree with me.

                On a completely different note, it's "bites" the dust, not "bits" the dust.

                    I want people to disagree with me. I don't want people to hate homosexuals.

                      Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

                        Who said all Christians HATED homosexuality? We don't hate people that have sex with many different people in one year. Sexual sin shouldn't be considered so much worse than every other sin! Seriously, I agree that people shouldn't beat up some one or kill them just because they're attracted to their own gender! And we believe that all have sinned, so we're saying that we are sinners also! So, every human on the planet should be "offended" at the fact we are sinners?!
                        If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

                          Ok, now I'm confused. I thought that's what you were saying. Could you clarify, then, why the firing of the folks in the OP doesn't classify as "hurting others"?

                              Because it has value. Remember this exchange:

                              How would you define a "wrong and harmful view"?

                              Wrong meaning factually incorrect or fighting against current scientific knowledge.

                              Harmful meaning having no value and hurting others.


                              So a wrong and harmful view, which warrants firing, would be a view that is "factually incorrect or fighting against current scientific knowledge and having no value and hurting others."
