    Wrong meaning factually incorrect or fighting against current scientific knowledge.

    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."
    Who decides that? What if they decided that anyone who attends Church should be fired, even if they aren't disruptive to the organization? That they should be fired for their beliefs, even if they aren't actually hurting anyone, but some bozos with those beliefs are jerks. So all that hold those beliefs must be jerks because of the few that are...

      You and I. Mostly me though. I don't think Christianity has no value and it doesn't have to hurt others. Plenty of Christians see no problem with homosexuality.

        Good. Just that there are people out there that might think that...

          Ah, so I kept this atheist lesbian liberal Jew on board because I "hated" her? I disagreed with her lifestyle, I valued her as a person. And she FULLY understood that.

          You have to play this game that, because we disagree with somebody's choices, that we necessarily "hate" them.

          On the other hand, somebody who DOES disagree with the lifestyle choices of homosexuals would, in your world, be totally unacceptable. You don't see a double standard?

            I'm confused. Did PM think I did or didn't see a problem with homosexuality? I compared it to other sexual sins, so...

              “Homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation” seems pretty hateful. Why would someone disagree with the lifestyle choices of homosexuals? It looks like an arbitrary in group and out group designation to me, and I don't think that's acceptable.

                Only to somebody who wants to blow it out of proportion and assign that "sound bite" to all who oppose homosexuality on any level.

                I believe it's unbiblical.

                And YOU are the judge?

                That's a huge difference between us. I allow you to disagree without hating you -- you want to stamp me and my ilk out.

                    Yeah, moreso than the hypocritical liberals who preach tolerance.

                      You seemed ok with me disagreeing... I also think it's best to wait until marriage and only have one sex partner. Though if the spouse dies, one can remarry. Would sure reduce STI incidences.

                        So what I'm getting from this, apparently, is that it's ok (right, even) to institute discriminatory practices that harm people, as long as these people were perceived to be doing some harm first. Is that accurate?

                          I'm applying it to the people who said it in the OP.

                          Plenty of people don't. What's the difference?

                            Everyone wants everyone who doesn't agree with them to change their minds. That's why arguments and debates exist.

                              Plus, define "anti-gay activist". What exactly were the twins doing or believing? Did they just believe homosexuality was morally wrong? Or did they think that LGBT people should not be treated as human beings and be killed? Or somewhere in between?

                                Thanks for proving again that your 'tolerance' only extends as far as to those who agree with you.
