viewpoints that some may disagree with?
your framing of transphobia in the nicest light isnt going unnoticed.
Can you honestly say that all/nobody disagrees with those viewpoints?
This thread wouldn’t exist if that were true.

Re: A Message to the Community - From the Advocates (Updated)

As previously stated, everyone has a defined legal human right to freedom of belief. That means you have that right, as does Seth, as does the hypothetical person imprisoning women in their kitchen. That doesn’t mean you or I or the kitchen jailer have to agree with each other. Sure. We all have ou...

But we shouldn't want the kitchen jailer to publicly represent our organization though right? That’s not ...

Re: A Message to the Community - From the Advocates (Updated)

What about someone who cites their christian beliefs for misogyny? Is it okay if they reference the bible to do that? I’d be surprised if they could - there are a number of such doctrines that various church groups have tried to get people to follow, but they’re not supported by anything in the Bib...

Re: A Message to the Community - From the Advocates (Updated)

If Seth is claiming these are his religious views then he needs to know those religious views are unwelcome here. Textbook hate speech right here, bro. Like, if someone asks how they can identify hate speech when they run across it, just show 'em this. What group is this hate speech against? Hate s...

Re: A Message to the Community - From the Advocates (Updated)

I read Seth's entire post. I would be happy to have him as a member of our community. I think he is an honest person who means well and genuinely cares about the wellbeing of others. Unfortunately, I don't believe it is possible for him to hold a volunteer position within the PC. Everyone who works...

Re: A Message to the Community - From the Advocates (Updated)

Certainly the word ‘liar’ was used, but wasn’t the full context ‘I would be a liar’? Not ‘they would be a liar’? There’s a difference between the two. ‘I would be a liar if I said I didn’t like pineapple on pizza’. Is not the same as: ‘YOU would be a liar... etc’ “I would be a liar if I said you di...

Re: A Message to the Community - From the Advocates (Updated)

The guy literally said he'll only change his views if someone can show him a line from a book that was written thousands of years ago. Oh, why don't we just show him the love thy neighbor line? Then he'll have to change his mind. Pretty sure you can love your neighbour and still disagree with them,...

Re: A Message to the Community - From the Advocates (Updated)

Eve wasnt born a woman. She was born a mans rib. God made transgendered people in bible book 1. Interesting existential question: is a body part a complete person, complete with a gender? If the answer is yes, and a man gets an organ transplant from a woman, what gender is that person now? If an eg...

It doesn’t, however it does underline the fact that we all need to get along respectfully even if we disagree.

“I did not say that I would intentionally call someone by the male or female pronoun opposite of what they identify as...” “However, I cannot call a transgender by their preferred pronoun.” If you didn’t say it before you said it right there. In fairness, he also pointed out that he would call them...
