Quite the eloquent speech.
Of course his message is right on, but his delivery: this guy has a future in a profession that requires public speaking.
The irony of a post tagged “bigots” that engages in bigotry is probably not lost on your readers.
It’s peculiar that one can insult one billion people based upon nothing more than religious orientation while simultaneously decrying the very same action.
No you fucking clown, there’s no irony at all.
When you mock someone because they believe in leprechauns and goblins, are you a “bigot?” Or, are you just mocking someone because they have ludicrous ideas?
Now, when you want to pass legislation to take the civil rights away from a group based on their immutable characteristics — well, that qualifies as “bigotry.”
So, yes, I mock 1 billion people — because they are fucking morons. Anyone who believes in a magic space zombie jew is as much of an idiot as any adult who believes in unicorns and hobbits. That’s not bigotry — that’s confronting morons with the facts.
And… don’t get me wrong, I think that they should have the right to believe in magic space zombie jews, unicorns, hobbits, goblins, angels, vampires, casper the friendly ghost, or feminists with a sense of humor. If it works for you, believe in anything you like. I’d even fight to make sure you have that right. But, if you try and pass a law based on a belief in goblins, or if you try and pass a law to take away someone else’s rights because of your belief in goblins, I think you’re a good candidate for a cockpunch.

While we obviously have a very different definition of bigotry, at least we both agree on the above point.
Don’t worry, he doesn’t think the young man is perfect. At least not since Zach also goes to church (0:45).

Of course it is possible Zach only goes to church to placate his mother, or his sister. Zach may not be a moron, he may simply be disingenuous when he does go. He may even go to something other than a christian church. So he may not be a magical space zombie believer, he may believe in something else altogether.
The difference is that gay people aren’t lining up trying to space legislation outlawing a person’s choice of religion. There’s also a big difference between honoring someone’s right the hold a belief and honoring that belief. I’ll take a bullet to defend your right to believe in any god you want, but that doesn’t mean I have to respect your belief or that god.
People stay silent because it’s considered rude to point out that a belief in a god is an embrace of willful ignorance. You really have to shut down the rational part of your brain to believe in Christianity. In fact it’s required by the religion. You have to have faith! It’s no more unlikely that a dead carpenter crawled out of a cave than lightning is a hammer thrown in anger, yet one of these beliefs is considered stupid by some (and the other by nearly all).
So as soon as gays organize, start their anti-religion marches, and are able to codify into law how a Christian is treated, then I’ll start worrying about how Christians can manage to show themselves in public without worry of being made fun of.
