    I quote the offending language.  I will repeat: equating religious faith with a brain disorder is a bad form of vilification

    Ironically the author says he is religious so apparently he suffers from a Brain disorder as well

        She's a flaming bigot advocating some kind of twisted mental scan procedure for religious minorities because they are "mental defectives" in her twisted little world.  

        And to think a lot of people I used to respect endorsed this

            The diarist is VERY clear that Mormons should not be allowed to hold public office absent a brains can because thei religion is a brain disorder.  THAT deserves strong condemnation

            I see no reason to back down in the fight against bigotry.  It is a fundamental principle of liberalism.

            An dyou are defending that statement.  It is a sad day when kossacks go Rush Limbaugh and call "persecution" when calle out for their odious statments
