Human Worth
(Thank you, Ghost, for inspiring this thread. I don't agree with you but I do respect your opinion.)

So after saying my piece in that crazy pedophile thread,
and after saying my piece in the sociopath thread,
and after being accused by Ghost of what I can only describe as human bigotry,
I want to open up a topic on Human Value/Human Worth.

I berated a christian for referring to one of my posts as "stupid".
My response to christian was "You're a christian. Go fuck yourself."
The response from Ghost included this line and I can't seem to stop pondering it:


"They are human beings first and foremost and deserve to be treated as such, regardless of how vile you might think their position is."



My question is: Is this true?
My assumption is that by "treated as such", he means "treated with dignity".
Is all human life worth something? Are some human lives worth nothing?
Do all human beings have some intrinsic value, irrespective of their position?
If yes, does this apply to pedophiles? How about sociopaths?
What about christians or muslims? Is "religious bigotry" acceptable?

Is any form of bigotry acceptable?

Bigotry against ideas? Ideologies? The practitioners of those ideologies?
When diversity meets political correctness, does it/can it lean toward the ridiculous?
In other words, can tall people be critical of what a short person thinks?
Can a brown-eyed person be critical of what a blue-eyed person thinks?
Are all human ideas sacred and therefore beyond criticism? How about human feelings?

What are your feelings about Human Worth / Human Value?
