There was a real St. Nicholas that the Santa character is based on. Proving Jesus existed is not the same thing as proving any of the religious mumbo jumbo.

Really? Is that what Kim Davis did? No, she denied people people their rights and refused to do her job. That's what cons do when they get offended- deny people goods and services.
Thanks from tristanrobin and RNG

If he's offended because you're endorsing the marginalization of a fellow citizen because of a minority status, or condoning inhumane treatment, or cheering hateful and discriminatory behavior, I think public chastisement and destroying your livelihood isn't nearly enough.

No, and that’s the point. Saint Nicholas actually existed. The character of Santa Claus came from him but fantastical details were added. Knowing that Nicholas existed does nothing to prove there is a guy flying around in a magic sleigh.

Even if you proved Jesus existed that does nothing to prove he was the son of god or rose from the dead.

I love when you social jihadis get all excited about stuff like this. You guys are no different than the religious right of the 80s and 90s using your numbers and perceived moral superiority in an attempt to use whatever means necessary to push your views on those that do not share them. Absolutely amazing.
Thanks from Jimmyb and Jimgorn

Pursuing legal equality for all people is not "perceived moral superiority," it is moral superiority.

And what views are those that we are “pushing”? The idea that everyone should be treated the same? The idea that your religious beliefs shouldn’t be a legal shield you can use to not treat others the same?

How you feel about someone cannot be forced on you. Your actions, how you treat others and interact with them can..and should. You want to live in a civilized society then it isn’t too much to ask that you act in a civilized manner.

Keep telling yourself that is what you are supporting. The fundamentalists believed that they were right too, so did the nazis.

Just remember that you said this of people who dissagree w/ you

Not so long ago it was socially acceptable to take that stance on homosexuals. How did that feel? How quickly we forget.

I am glad that you publicly acknowledge that you are a social jihadis. That is the first step to healing.
