I didn't watch the video because it is a pain in the ass to do it in my Xoom.

But I will concede that given that definition of religion(which I don't like but won't go as far to say it is wrong either) and the definition of worship, you have made your case to me.

From the age of around 4 to the age of 8, I gradually, unknowingly went deaf. I actually fully and quite personally understand the resentment connected to surgically having my hearing reestablished.

Rest assured; it is you who is doing the conflating ... not to mention using human shields to deflect any flack tossed at your ridiculous god or repugnant religion.

Kim, I forgive for calling me troll.

If I am using human shields to hide repugnant religious beliefs(as you errantly claim), why can't the poster of that Facebook comment use religion to hide bigotary?

RE: This is fucking disgusting.
I just cannot keep silent on this one Heywood. There is "being open minded" and then there is "acceptance of stupidity" in the name of open mindedness. You are displaying the latter. In this case it doesn't take much skepticism, followed by a little critical thought to sort through this one.

Then it shouldn't be difficult for you to connect the dots. How do you know that face book poster isn't using God as a shield for his/her bigotry?

I don't care why the person is an asshole, I just believe that they are one. Stupidity is no excuse for stupidity.

Okay...now I understand. You don't have an actual argument to make. You have an opinion, and because my opinion is different then yours mine must be stupid.

Bigotry is intolerance toward people who hold different opinions from oneself. The author of the Facebook feels that deafness is not a disability and does not tolerate people who view deafness is a disability.
