Oh, I didn't mean to rush you (*BG*)! It's just that you weren't, and still are not, answering the actual question.

I didn't ask if bigotry could be justified by Christians. Nor did I ask if any other religions justify bigotry. Nor did I accuse any religions of justifying bigotry (at least not in this hypothetical!).

I asked whether, if a person's bigotry is faith-based, I have to respect it (assuming you agree that if their bigotry is NOT faith-based, I don't). I explained this very clearly in my previous clarification. However, once again you've instead repeated something you'd already said and which had already been noted as irrelevent - sp?) about christianity and other particular religions.

I therefore conclude (again) that you would say Yes, faith-based beliefs are protected and must be respected, even if they are bigoted.

I also continue to see you as not wanting to say so. This is why instead you say something else that isn't what is asked but defends your faith, which isn't under question in this hypothetical.

I also, therefore, conclude (again) that you know quite well that your position that faith-based beliefs should be respected simply because they are faith-based, is untenable in this hypothetical.

I therefore also conclude (again, again) that you actually agree that respecting faith-based beliefs is wrong when those beliefs are wrong.

Which is what I've been saying all along.
