a very important part of this learning experience is coming to terms with the fact there are consequences for being an asshole. i've lost some friendships over shit i used to believe - namely the very militant atheism of my teenage years - and i'd be lying if i said i was happy about it at the time, but it's definitely what i needed. and these days most of the social circles i'm involved in are religious and/or interfaith!

Don't try to make me into the bad guy

you're the one arguing that we need accommodate bigots and "nurture the good in them", how are you not the bad guy here

So I guess that means you don't follow your own advice. Why, then, would you expect others to?

can you believe this guy went from "be a teacher, not a tyrant" to "I WILL PUNCH YOU FOR DISAGREEING WITH ME"

I will not be talked down to by such a hate-filled ass clown like that, though. By his own admission, this is how he learns, so I was only giving him what he asked for. If you don't like it, that's just too damn bad.

Isn't a bigot getting what they asked for when they are mocked? How come Dumai "asks" for that by pissing you off but a bigot doesn't "ask" for it when they demean and dehumanize whole groups of people?
