    It cracks me up when bigots (of all stripes) cry foul whenever they or anyone else gets 'discriminated' against because of their personal bigotry.

    I'm not a big fan of protected classes in general, but you certainly shouldn't be protected from discrimination simply because you're a fuck'n asshole. :lol:

    They could be. The number of "protected" classes is always on the increase.

    The question becomes can a person be fired for a poltical position in general, and how do we define a bigot. If as a practicing catholic, a person believes homosexuality is a sin, and expresses this opinion, does that preclude them from certain forms of employment, or require the firing of said person from a position, say a public school teacher? Also does it matter WHERE this opinion is voiced? If it is kept out of the work environment, is it still grounds to dismiss them?

    We have benn defining bigotry down the past 30 years. Bigots from the 50's and 60's would call today's "bigots" "******-lovin, pope worshippin, gay bags."

    Reminds me of Lincoln's remark that if the slaveholders thought the institution was so good, they should try it on themselves for a change.

    If you think discrimination is such a good idea, then you must accept that discrimination toward you is also good.

    And bigots are a protected class. You can't be mean to folks with low IQ's.

    you still have to define what a "bigot" is. Lets use race as an example and go from most extreme to least.

    All black must be killed
    All blacks must be shipped to africa
    All blacks must live in designated camps
    All blacks must live in designated towns
    Blacks cannot be Citizens and have the same rights as whites
    Blacks cannot have the same rights as whites
    Blacks cannot use the same facilities as whites
    Blacks should go to seperate schools as whites
    Blacks should not marry whites
    Blacks are not the equal of whites
    Blacks should live apart from whites
    Blacks should not recieve extra benefits from society
    Blacks and whites should have thier own social circles
    Too many blacks are on welfare
    Most blacks are poor
    Blacks are better athletes than whites due to breeding


    Where do you draw the "bigot" line?

    Interesting point, though I think it needed just a tad bit more condescension
