He stands on the sidewalk on State Street in the heart of downtown Chicago with his microphone and speaker, where he spews hatred for anyone and everyone that is not in line with his beliefs. It's "You better follow my way or you're an evil person doomed to hell!"

His favorite target to spew his hatred at is gays. He rants up and down about how gays are evil, and they are all going to hell. He even goes as far as specifically targeting people that walk by and making comments like "This guy here is a fag and headed straight for hell!"

So, I wasn't aware of this until recently, but around a month ago, this man was attacked while he was ranting his usual hateful speech. The thing that really infuriates me is that this asshole has actually been made out to look like an unfortunate victim. Now, we all know damn well that if this were some white dude preaching hatred against blacks, shouting the n-word and saying that all blacks are just lazy criminals, nobody would have any sympathy for this man, and everyone would agree that he got what he deserved. However, because he is using his RELIGIOUS beliefs to preach hatred, then all of a sudden it's a shame that somebody went and did that to him. Here is a video and article that makes him look like a helpless victim forgiving his attackers:

http://abc7chicago.com/news/state-street...ive/74069/

The fact that people actually feel sorry for this man and that the media will just overlook the fact that he does nothing but spew hatred all day is a perfect example of the free pass that religion is given. He gets to preach his hatred all he wants, and then get portrayed by the media as some loving Christian forgiving his attackers. What a fucking joke.

Nah its no joke. You can't physically assault somebody in America because they say gays are going to hell.

That would be like a bunch of Muslims beating you down for saying there is no God.

Both are exercises of free speech.

Disagreeing with what someone says, even if you are offended is not justification for putting your hands on them and assaulting them.

If you have a problem with this, write your congressmen.

I never said assaulting him was justification for his hate speech. I said that it's hypocritical that you Bible thumpers get to preach hate on grounds of your religion and get special treatment, while people who preach hate speech for things like racism get criticized for the assholes that they are.

Funny how you Bible thumpers are the first ones to defend free speech and tell people to leave if they don't like it, yet when an atheist merely says that they don't want your religious garbage forced on them, you're the first ones to scream "This is a country with a Christian majority and if you don't like it then leave!" But why would I expect anything less than total hypocrisy by you Christians?

You have the right to free speech, but you don't deserve to get special treatment and be free of criticism just because your hate speech is directed at people for religious reasons. THAT is my point! Now go work on those reading comprehension skills!

That is the most unpatriotic thing a person could ever say.

There it is! The hypocritical bullshit I expected from you! One minute you twist my words and tell me that if I don't like freedom of speech, then I should leave. Then the next minute you're telling me that I should leave because my freedom of speech criticizes the special treatment that people of YOUR RELIGION expect to be treated with!! Again, Christian hypocrisy at its finest!!

Am I the only one who ever wants to respond to this with "Trust me if I had the ability i would?"

If only it were that simple.

So by your example a theist on a predominately atheist forum should move to a forum that is more in line with his belief?

So...

Shoo fly!

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

They'll ignore that while screaming persecution. I was talking to some Baptists who were going on how terrible they have it here in the states. I asked them how they felt like persecuted minorities when 75% of the nation is Christian. Apart from a handful of anti-Christian anecdotes they produced, one of them scoffed at my figure and told me he had a bridge to sell me if I believed 75% of Americans were Christian. I showed him some recent polls, and his answer was that only 10-20% of Americans were Christian; the rest were not true Scotsmen Christians.

They don't see their privilege because they go out of their way to convince themselves that they're victims.

Jeremy is spot on this time.

I don't afford him a lot of my sympathy, but he was a victim. No one, under any circumstances, should be assaulted provided they are obeying the law and a harm to no one. Unfortunately hateful bigoted religious asshole shouting his nonsense fits squarely in that category of people who should never be assaulted.


No, he's not spot on. He's showing his Christian hypocrisy. I'm surprised that you completely missed the point of my post. I did not, in any way, condone physical violence. I said that it is bullshit that a guy who preaches hate for religious reasons gets to be made out to look like some loving Christian, while other people who preach hate speech like racism against black people and got attacked would NEVER get portrayed by the media as some nice, caring person who was randomly attacked for no reason. THAT is the point! The fact that religious hate gets special treatment instead of being criticized for what it is.

Jeremy is far from spot on. He twisted my words, and he has only proven himself to be nothing less than a complete hypocrite throughout this thread.

Read the first post again...
