    Maybe her best segment ever. I'd love to drop it onscreen in front of some of the Fox watching dicks at the gym.

    Yes, but you're required to provide your own tools.

    They are the ones who decided to put the rights of a minority up to a popular vote. They didn't think that through very well.

    (hilarious video)

    This video was really rude toward Christians. I'm actually a christian, and I know exactly what that pastor was referring too. Living in a college city, a lot of my friends are Christian and see homosexuality as a sin and they do get belittled when they make their opinion known. I think that gay supporters are usually the more intolerant. They will bash a person for making their opinion known. I respect my friends' opinions on homosexuality, even if I don't agree with it.

    In my opinion both sides are wrong

    There's no need to shove your beliefs in people's faces-gay, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Straight, etc

    We should ask for respect not acceptance, people can't be forced to accept things they were born to dislike, at least the ones who are living now, it may change with their children though

    As long as people respect each other and don't harm each other then who cares what religions say. Of course, they do harm each other and others but both sides aren't doing much to remedy the situation.

    Unfortunately people are killed all the time for who they are, it's not just a gay issue. There's nothing we can do but educate future generations

    Sorry, but when someone like the pastor works to make sure lgbt people should not be allowed to marry, that they should be legally allowed to fire people or deny people housing based on a person's sexual orientation, that lgbt people should not be allowed to adopt, I am not going to have kind words for those people. I have no tolerance for intolerance. When a person's opinion is that others should not be treated equally, that is an opinion that deserves to be "belittled." Do you also think those that used religion to uphold slavery should not have their opinions belittled? Or those that used the Bible to deny rights to women should not have their opinions belittled?

    Exactly. Just because you hold tolerance as a core value does not require you to tolerate intolerance. In fact, tolerating intolerance promotes INTOLERANCE, so it is counterproductive.

    Whew.

    Florida_guy, if you're a gay guy,for the life of me I can't figure out why you would respect anyone's opinion that being gay is a sin. I can understand tolerating it from someone you otherwise like (though I wouldn't), but respect? Really?

    I sometimes wonder if the DS creates these scenarios, because I can't imagine some of the people being interviewed (like this pastor) as being real people. I remember the guy who was interviewed about gun control by John Oliver and thought, "No one could really be THAT stupid!" But maybe they can . . .

    What this vocal sub-set of Christians is experiencing is not intolerance. If someone says something, which they have every right to do, someone else might not like it and say something in reply. This is just simple expression.

    For a long time, negative statements about gays went unchallenged because these views were (and still are in many ways) institutionalized in American society. Things are different now and it looks like a lot of people still aren't used to that. Maybe that seems like bullying to them but everyone still has the fundamental right to be as anti-gay as they want and to express that. They should not expect that everyone else will agree.

    Now, look for videos that are "really rude" toward gays. Don't worry, it won't take long. And guess who's behind most of them?

    Well, sure but... they are adults are they not? I'm sure we ALL have opinions that get belittled it is part of life. This of course applies to anything, you can even be belittled on your music choices. My response?: So what!? Suck it up and move on.

    Now, although I do not agree with the christian view of Homosexuality, people have every right to believe it and express it and will just have to deal with whatever response they get, just like I have to deal with responses to my beliefs about homosexuality and other issues or interests. I bet anyone of us can opine on something on these boards or in public and get blasted for thinking and saying it.

    Ultimately, most people's problems with homosexuality and Christianity (which should really include most religions, not just Christianity) is that they want to make their beliefs law. That is where the line is drawn and that is the part that gets the most flack from non-Christians.

    Basically, believe what you want, say what you want, deal with the responses, but do not make laws based on religious beliefs.

    You are free as a Christian to say you believe homosexuality is a sin, we are free to say you are a bigot (Society will agree with us). Thank you 1st Amendment.

    And as a Christian, I am free to call out other Christians on their bigotry, evident in their obvious selectivity when it comes to pointing fingers at 'sin'.

    Please tell me about the last time a gay man or woman shot a Christian in the face for being Christian.

    It's a shame Marc Carson, Mathew Shepard, Rebecca Wright, and Charlie Howard were so intolerant of their Christian murderers.
