People said the same thing about Roberts and Gorsuch too.

You really need to climb off your high horse. Or did you forget your using a full-on slur regarding your straw religious people in a private message to me recently?

Christianity deserves far worse than colorful language.

'Jesus freak' doesn't have much sting when it's frequently used as a self descriptor by American Christians.

Funny, they'd probably say the same thing about a gay person. But that's ok because you're doing it for a good reason, right?

Both sides are morally equivalent.

I call Christians mean names.

Christians install politicians, lawmakers and judges that enforce religious discrimination and theocracy.

I'm such a meanie.

So your defense is that you're being a bigot, but it's okay, because you're not as bigoted as some of the people you're bigoted towards?

My defense is that I don't seek to deprive anyone of their rights.

My defense is that I don't seek to install a theocracy akin to the Taliban at the highest levels of the American government.

Self-righteousness is a hell of a drug.
