You can't get away from fanaticism!
Comparing Christians to a hate group is a good example of a comment which would probably get you fired. People who attack other people religious beliefs like that are like a cancer in the corporate family, and need to be eradicated ASAP before they poison the work environment.

If you worked for me, and I heard you speak like that about Christians, muslims, or whoever, I'd fire you on the spot, right there in front of everyone.

I guess you are not very diverse, loving and/or appreciative given how you loathe those who don't agree with your views ) as is plainly seen in your comment above).

And you would fire yourself for calling a church a hate group?

Ironically, I see "Jesus Saves" and other graffiti written on the walls of outhouses or porta-johns on nearly every construction site. You can't get away from fanaticism!

I could care less what you believe, you can believe in dancing reindeer. But when it comes to people pushing there beliefs on others, it's not something that others need to tolerate without interference.

And I highly doubt you would ever be in a position to fire me. LMAO

Westboro Baptists is officially a hate group.

No one asked you if you care.

Like I said, I'd fire you on the spot, and have security walk you out.

For the record, in the decades I spent in the work environment, I never came across anyone who'd talk like that.

When did that happen? I'm googling, and all I'm coming up with is a 2013 report that says the White House can NOT label Westboro as a hate group.

For the record, you would need more than a security force or your opinion.

It's an example of someone who talks out both sides of their mouth to justify their own position.

I have no problem with you believing in dancing reindeer or the false existence of a fiery underworld. You can discuss them to your heats content, but trying to convince me that you wield the hammer of justice is asinine and absurd.

Can you seriously not see the absurdity in your position? This is one thing I'll give Frank Turek (www.crossexamined.org) credit for: He effectively exposes the comical inconsistencies in atheists' positions.

We all push our beliefs on others. Are the homosexual and transgender communities not pushing their beliefs? Are the New Atheists not pushing their beliefs? Are you not pushing your beliefs?

Are you kidding me? The above groups are proselytizers to a degree most Christian denominations would envy.

Christians are at least honest. We admit we're fulfilling the Great Commission. We admit we hope you'll convert. We admit we aren't tolerant of behaviors the Bible condemns. We admit we expect intense opposition, that we expect to be at enmity with the world and even persecuted.

People like you are simply dishonest frauds. You can't begin to live or practice what you preach. You must live in a constant state of cognitive dissonance.

As Thomas Sowell cogently pointed out, your idea of tolerance includes "the right to be intolerant of everything we disagree with." We can claim to be tolerant while actually being viciously intolerant because THOSE INTOLERANT CHRISTIANS ARE WRONG AND MUST BE SILENCED!!!

It's just laughable.
