    After the election, I saw some extremely bigoted

    and racist things said against Tim Scott and Mia Love after they won their elections. Only reason people can't stand them is because they're both black.

    Fundamentalism

    Fundamentalists have a different point of reference rather than always disagree with anything they don't understand. So - to a christian fundamentalist, if it disagrees with their understanding of the bible, it must be false. To a muslim fundamentalist, if it disagrees with...

    Gay Marriage

    I have yet to see a person against gay marriage who didn't base their arguments on prejudice.  It bothers me that religion can still be cited in our government as reasons for denying a basic civil right.  I have hope that the nation will soon realize the unconstitutionality of...

    The Ten Oppressions

    Bear with me...there's some boring history involved. There was a bit of controversy a while back about putting up the Ten Commandments on the courthouse lawn in *Somewhere,U.S.A.  I have sided with the "whiners" or at least so we we're called.     Don't get me wrong...

    Lies Christains Like Telling Themselves

    Response To Fundamentalism

    I agree. Fundamentalism is at the very least intellectually dishonest, no matter where it comes from.  Fundamentalism used to make negative opinions would be prejudiced.This is why I'm an Agnostic.

    Ignorance

    Claiming anything without any evidence to back it up is to do so in ignorance.  Claiming something in ignorance is prejudice.

    You Don't Know The Truth And Other Limitations Of Our Species

    Ignorance
