Tennessee Anti-Bullying Law to Change
« on: January 04, 2012, 04:54:13 pm »
Cause it's ok to bully someone for being gay if it's for religious reasons

Exactly what it says too.  A group in Tennessee wants to make an amendment to the Anti-Bullying laws to give a religious excemption so they can continue to harass LBGTQ teens to death.  It's like they're not even trying anymore.  Didn't Jesus say treat thy neighbor as you yourself would be treated?

Ironbite-I hate fundies.

Funny how fundies accuse other people of wanting special rights, when they're the ones demanding special rights to be assholes.
That may be the single gayest thing I have ever read on this board. Or the old one. ;)

Yeah, ‘cause calling a kid “Fag” is so much less hurtful when preceded by “God hates you!”

"The purpose is to stop bullying." Yeah, give kids an acceptable excuse for their bigotry. That won't harm anyone.

So if I'm a member of the Creativity Movement (also known as the World Church of the Creator), does that mean I can say that blacks, Jews, and all non-whites are mud races?

It's "religious freedom", after all.

How much you want to bet that if a hardline Muslim student started calling the girls in the school sluts and whores because they aren't modestly dressed enough, they'd immediately come up with one-hundred-and-one excuses as to why he wouldn't be protected by this law?

If I understand correctly, the law only allow anti-gay bullying under the religious exemption.

I think the gays should reverse it and bully the 'breeders' for polluting the earth with their reckless overpopulation or something.  Just say they are also stating their religious views.
Whenever I hear a politician speaking strongly for or against abortion, all I hear is, "I have no idea how to fix the economy!"

As a member of the Church of Euthanasia, it is my opinion that heterosexuality is an abomination that perpetuates the parasite infestation known as humankind.

These were my thoughts exactly.   I swear, fundies are the masters of double standards. :/
