If u say u disagree, u are labeled a bigot or divisive for having a different view then the left does.
And that's how it should be. It's pretty much impossible to make a logical, sound argument against gay marriage and homosexuality. 99.9% of the argument is based on a religious argument which is stupid because A) we're a secular nation of laws and B) theologians themselves debate the New Testament's stance on homosexuality and the most persuasive arguments point to there being no biblical basis for anti-homosexuality stances.

Being bigoted against gays is no different or better than being bigoted against a racial minority.

Also, believing in an imaginary friend in the sky as a grown adult makes all of your other opinions suspect.

And being a condescending while lacking respect for other people's beliefs as a grown adult does the same to yours. As I said in the OP, no being rude to other people.

Proof of the bullying!

Props to Stothert since it appears she understands her constituents aren't just the people that voted for her.

Hahah. No it really doesnt.
The first is taking one's demonstrated ability to believe ridiculous things in the face of scant (and often outright contradictory) evidence and saying "man, this guy's not so good with the critical thinking then"
The second is basically saying "No...you are!" regardless of whether it applies or not.

BTW your beliefs dont deserve "respect" just because they bother to exist.
I dont respect Sharia Law (and I suspect your dont either) so let's not try to play the "everyone's pet superstitions have merit so long as were only talking about mine" game.

This came up on Facebook

Council approves moving 2012 surplus cash toward '14 budget - Omaha.com

Quote:
Surplus money from the City of Omaha's 2012 budget will help close a funding gap for next year's budget, rather than shore up up the cash reserve and golf account.

City finance officials also made it clear: a tax decrease won't be part of Mayor Jean Stothert's proposed budget for 2014.
Good move - Shutting the door on tax cuts.

Bad move - Broken campaign promise.

Bad move #2 - Shutting the door on a tax hike.
