    Of Any Viewpoint

    I'm bored of Christian-bashing. I was raised a Methodist but left the church a long time ago and am now Agnostic and quite satisfied with it. Just as I dislike a Christian telling me that my beliefs (or lack thereof) are wrong, I also dislike rampant anti-Christian sentiments by...

    And Here Is An Example

      A  Florida high school named for a Confederate general who was also a leader of the Ku Klux Klan will be keeping its name — thanks to a vote of the county school board. Nathan Bedford Forrest was a slave trader before the Civil War, a top-notch...

    Nothing wrong with an un-educated bigot.

    Those people you can try and reason with. It's the EDUCATED BIGOT who's more dangerous!

    I Do Not Dislike

    I do not dislike uneducated people, but I rarely feel comfortable with them. They speak about things I am not interested in, their opinions are not based so that they could be discussed and so on. Higher education really changes people deeply.

    Uneducated Bigots

    The way I look at it,if you were raised by bigots you accept their belief system. You may not be blessed with a good education,because you may not live where good schools are available,or your family may not be able to afford to send you to school. Instead of disliking...

    Their Love For The Tolerance Paradox

    Their idea is that tolerance is flawed, cause to them, tolerance means everything is fine, as long as its not intolerance. First off, their views on tolerance is flawed. Tolerance does not mean everything goes, or that we have to agree with everything. Nope, it means that...

    Ignorance and Bigotry

    It seems to me that ignorance and bigotry are related in a "cause and effect" relationship.  Ignorance has nothing to do with education.  I has to do with a closed mind and preconceived notions acquired in many ways -- family, culture, religion, and the media...

    I disagree with this subject.

    Reason? Just because you have a degree or a certificate of an MA, does not prove anything. Why? It does not symbolise your intelligence, it just says "someone taught me about so & so subject," on a piece of paper. It's like a job, why is it important to have experience more...

    A Lack of Education Has Nothing to Do With It

    In my experience, bigotry has little to do with someone's lack of education. I've met tons of people in my life who have very little education and are not bigoted at all. Of course, my assumption would be their parents were also not bigoted. I've noticed that most bigots are...

    Especially when they're prejudiced against the
