I've spent all morning looking up a quote that I wanted to use.  I'll give the credit to Richard Dawkins, even though I can't find it in the exact words, so this might be semi-original:

It's a special form of bigotry that allows a group of people, based on ancient theological text, to deny the right of another life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, when the actions taken have absolutely no bearing on their own lives.

Thanks Monica - I'll take credit for it then :)

 

Even if he didn't say it in the exact words, it was certainly inspired by Dawkins...

That is an awesome quote, I love it! But it's so very true. If you can use a text from way back in the day to justify bigotry and say that god shines upon it, you must be quite daffy. Or at least lack compassion.

Will do John - Thanks for the advice!
