Quote:I don't think it does at all. Saying you don't approve of someone's choice does not always mean you feel superior. It can though. But that's also human nature...people often "feel" superior when they think they are in the right.
Quote:I would say gay people feel morally superior to those who disapprove of them.
No you aren't getting it. If you're an oppressed minority like gays it doesn't matter if you feel superior because society is oppressing you and you don't have any power!
It's the same argument that happens when people talk about Black issues.
And someones says something like "well, Blacks are mean to cops."
Blacks are profiled by cops, Blacks are made to be second class citizens in America. That's the underlying issue because the cops are the ones in power not the Blacks.
And it's the same thing with Gays. Gays aren't the ones in power. Christians are because Republicans are in power and even when they aren't they want to be and Republicans DESPERATELY want Christian votes so they do whatever ridiculous thing they think Christians might want to get the votes.
Yes, I know not all Christians hate gays, but it is Christians that are the driving force behind a culture that oppresses them and a government that makes laws that take away their rights.
Quote:Personally I think everyone and everything should be occasionally mocked...if you cant laugh at yourself there are deeper issues there.
Sure, but that's not what I'm talking about. Christians can make jokes about gays all they want and I don't really care.
But Christians don't want to make jokes they want to make themselves first class citizens, non-Christians second class citizens and gays third class citizens.
