I bet he is all about tolerance and inclusion. At least for the correct side, determined by people like him. While at the same time probably curses Christians as being intolerant.
How am I doing to him what he did to sarge? He banned Sarge because of who he is, exhibiting a great deal of hate and intolerance as he did so.
How is that like what I did? Because he acted in a cruel and intolerant manner, blatantly stating his hatred for Christians and actually banning Sarge, I pointed out that in my experience many people I have encountered like him- who exhibit outright hatred for Christians, are also the very same hypocrites that think they are the enlightened, inclusive, tolerant bunch. I stated there is no way to find out for sure, but I would bet $ that is the case since I have observed it to be the case so many times in my life.
This guy said against Sarge words that would be considered hate speech by the thought police of the left if said against certain preferred groups. He or she said " Religion is disease and you are wrecking the world...you are not welcome in any of my groups (which include all the other GoPro groups pretty much). Byeeeeee" and then took action on his words, denying services to Sarge because of Sarges relifious beliefs, or at least Sarge's failure to cower and hide those beliefs. Me saying ( or Kev agreeing) that I bet he thinks he is a tolerant person is in no way in the same category as what he did.
Still, no matter what you think about me doing the same thing as him, I stick with what I said. I wish there was a way to find out, because I'd bet $100 that he thinks he is tolerance personified. Mr. inclusive.
And I forgot: you said we are "extrapolating to a conclusion that he is an undesirable person. And in this case your extrapolation isn't even from the data, but from your reaction to the data. The data indicates the person is an atheist with negative attitudes towards religion, in this case quick to punish with no attempt at reconciliation." I've got news for you, the data you ae pointing to there is indeed an undesirable person. No extrapolation is really required for me, if he is an atheist who is quick to punish people of faith, those are undesirable attributes. Are you saying you think they are desirable?
