What Offends Some People
I trotted out the usual arguments. There are people who find gay marriage offensive. There are those who are offended by the concept of evolution. Will we be taking their hurt feelings seriously as well?There are people who are offended by the concept that evolution is likely to ensure that gay marriage is a blind alley.
I also noticed:
Lodging a formal complaint is tantamount to stating that you get to order the rest of the world how to behave, that your personal outrage is legitimate grounds for censure; and really, in a free society, is there an inalienable right to never be offended?Speaking as a wingnut, all I have to say is: That's our line.
Addendum: Are pointless gratuitous insults also for the purpose of ensuring that nobody criticizes an idea? For example, I was considering posting a criticism of this bull but it would require hacking away at the irrelevancies with a machete to get to the point or two (I think he mentioned peak oil) and I don't have the patience. Maybe someone with a stronger stomach than I can do it…
