I am a victim of persecution. On a daily basis, I am forced to tolerate people who think differently than I do. I am expected to ignore my deeply held beliefs and treat people equally regardless of whether or not they adhere to those beliefs.
In short, I am expected to be a decent human being, and I’m not going to take it anymore.
I demand legislation protecting my freedom to be a jerk. I insist that my right to be an exclusionary bigot be preserved as a matter of law. I will not stop until every single person has to bend and accommodate to how I sincerely feel, because believe me, I really do sincerely hold these beliefs, honest I do, you can trust me.
It is an unreasonable burden to expect me to accept that different people think different things, and that my beliefs are not so fragile that the very existence of contrary points of view constitutes a fundamental threat to my mental well-being. It is a violation of my rights to claim that my belief you will go to Hell for doing a thing does not preclude you from doing that thing, or compel me to sell you anything if I suspect you do it. I have no obligation to remove myself from this cocoon and accept that I am living in the 21st century, and if you don’t respect that, then you’re on the list too.
Come to think of it, did I even say you could read this?
This persecution will not stand.
