It makes no sense. I never debated "scripture" etc. I am simply Catholic. That's all it took for me to be attacked. We are dealing with extremists here. Bigots. I suggest you look up the word and contemplate it. Bigots don't really want liberty. They want a country of individuals that share their beliefs. Not diversity. They don't want true liberty and they have no business pretending to be in the Liberty Movement.
commander made his comments to see what the reaction would be. I was not surprised by all the support he received here. Micheal Nystrom, by posting this thread, has given me HOPE. The individuals that attacked me and my faith did more than attack my "church". Bigotry is far more dangerous when the individual bigots refuse to admit what they are. Their bigotry and refusal to admit it, presents a very dangerous threat to liberty in this country. Ban them ALL.
I left the DailyPaul, because I simply couldn't stand bigots like your husband. I'm Catholic. The bigots here have also attacked me. Bigotry has no place HERE or the liberty movement in general. It's not compatible. Move along and form a church and create your own website. This is a liberty website, not a website focused on creating a theocracy.
you champion a bigot.
I'm not gay and I despise bigotry. Especially bigotry that hides within the Liberty Movement.
deep bigotry that has infested the Liberty Movement. Just sit back and watch the threads appear and marvel at the comments. Are these really individuals that want liberty for all? I think not. We have a cancer in the liberty movement and it is now on display.
and A&E, a private network had enough and fired him. That is NOT bigotry, baptist. Robertson is part of the infection that infests this country. He doesn't support "liberty" for individuals that disagree with his interpretation of the bible. They are "murders" and promote "evil". Have you heard the public speak he gave two years BEFORE the show started? Take a listen. He is a scumbag and I look on with glee as individuals like him get "fired" or as we are now seeing here, "banned". This is a great victory for real liberty.
they understand bigotry because they have been victims of it.
The Liberty Movement will implode if websites like the DailyPaul provide a platform for this kind of blatant bigotry. The most aggressive, verbal, bigots will become the "face" of the Liberty Movement online and this will result in a loss of credibility and a shift AWAY from the pursuit of real liberty. This is NOT a theological movement, it is a liberty movement.
I've spent a couple days wondering why I come to this website. Why I care about this liberty movement. I have been involved for years. I've met Ron Paul, put up his signs all over town, stood on a highway overpass waving his sign, etc. I've realized I have been naive. I've known for years there is an element in the liberty movement that embraces religious bigotry. A combination of evangelical Christians and atheists. It seems I misjudged the size of this group. I now believe it could make up the majority of hard core liberty patriots. Catholics are clearly a target for these individuals. As a Catholic, I have experienced this bigotry.
I read this article today (below) and realized I feel far more connected to the tone of this article and the author's journey, than the blatant bigotry I've experience here on the DailyPaul, a liberty website.
for centuries. Oh well, we have always been told it wouldn't be easy. Peace, brother.
So sad to see it on the DailyPaul. Looks like Catholics better stay clear of the Liberty Movement.
is not controlled by the "government". It is controlled by individuals and the corporations they serve.
we can't have "free" market capitalism in the current corrupt financial system. The Pope pointed out this corruption and suggested it was naive to trust the individuals that run the current corrupt system. The Pope is correct. Free market capitalism will NOT work in this environment and everyone here on the DailyPaul should know this.
he is attacking the current corrupt financial system and the notion you can create "free" markets in this environment.
reject any form of control. The Pope is correct. The current financial system is corrupt and it is foolish to encourage free markets in this specific corrupt system. The Pope's statement is reasonable and I've heard Ron Paul say similar things.
he was clearly attacking the current corruption in this specific financial system and correctly suggested "free" markets have no evidence of working BECAUSE the current system is corrupt and can't create free markets. It IS naive to think you can create a free market without addressing the corrupt ruling class that runs the current system.
He said there is NO evidence(facts) "free" markets work and it's naive to think the current corrupt system that is being run by criminals, could create and maintain true "free" markets. The Pope is correct.
and typical anti-Catholic garbage. Here is a link to the history of anti-Catholicism that still infects the United States. There is clear evidence of this bigotry right here on the DailyPaul website.
"Historians have studied the motivations for anti-Catholicism. The basic motivations were political (the threat posed by Rome and its allies to Protestant nations) and theological. However, scholars have also speculated on the psychological motivations, usually concluding that a strong element of irrational bigotry was involved. Historian Arthur M. Schlesinger, Sr. characterized prejudice against the Catholics as "the deepest bias in the history of the American people." Conservative writer Peter Viereck once commented that (in 1960) "Catholic baiting is the anti-Semitism of the liberals." Historian John Higham described anti-Catholicism as "the most luxuriant, tenacious tradition of paranoiac agitation in American history"."
