|ALL men and women have the right
to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…not just
those who worship and abide by the Bronze Age morality
of your ancient middle-eastern god.
This is what freedom and liberty loving people of good conscience in our great, democratic nation must do: We must shame the filthy, vile, Merchants of Hate; those who hide behind their high office and fancy titles, spewing their hate speech from their pulpits and computers in the belief that their religious high office excuses them from being held accountable for their hate crimes.
We must pursue these evil adherents of superstition-based hate; we must relentlessly hound them; relentlessly shout them down; so harshly and so mercilessly counterattacking them, that their children and grand-children will tremble in fear to dare walk the gauntlet of public humiliation, revulsion, and loathing that awaits them, and will therefore choose to refrain from following in their parents’ and grandparents’ vile footsteps.
We did this to the Segregationists. We can do it to the Fundamentalists.
We must strip away all social respectability and lofty title from the Purveyors and Peddlers of Hate.
So if you are a fundamentalist/orthodox/conservative Christian Church official, and you engage in hate speech, you no longer deserve to be addressed by the title of: “Pastor”, “Reverend”, “Father” or “Bishop”. No. You simply deserve to be addressed as “Bigot.”
We must make you appear to the world as no more virtuous than the Klansman or the Neo-Nazi. Just as the social acceptability and respectability of Segregationism has collapsed and disappeared, so too your days of respectability are numbered, Fundamentalist Christian.
Woe to you, Bigot. Woe to you, Purveyor of Religion-inspired hate speech. The good people of the United States of America have tired of you. And Citizens United Against Religious Hate Speech is closely monitoring you.
Enemies of a free and democratic society.
