Cantor Urges Tolerance On Gays, Muslims
BuzzFeed ^ | July 19 2012 | John Stanton

Posted on 07/23/2012 10:01:08 PM PDT by BurningOak

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor Thursday urged his party, and the nation, to guard against intolerance on issues ranging from gay marriage to the role of Muslims in the government, arguing the country’s diversity of opinion and acceptance are part of America’s basic fabric.

“There can’t be some kind of monolithic opinion handed down from the government or a political party. I don’t think we’re monolithic beings,” Cantor, a Virginia Republican, said in an interview with BuzzFeed.

Cantor is spouting Libtard Cant!

Any Jew who doesn’t recognize Islam is antithetical to, and irreconcilable with Judeo-Christianity is either woefully ignorant or bought off!

Islam is a cultural cancer.

Radiation is the answer!

Oh shut up, stop playing their game

Speak out against discrimination against Caucasians and Asians for “diversity” BS and quotas.

Good grief, what a poor representative.

Seems they are taking a page out of the homosexual play book, outing themselves.........as RINO’s. Can’t say I am surprised at Cantor sadly.

And No Rep. Cantor, we cannot support that, or you because of it.

There are some issues that are black and white. Marriage is between a man and woman. Gay people can have their unholy bonds. But don’t involve “the people.” Keep it to yourself.

Let’s put all the faggots and all the Mohammedans in a room together so they can learn to tolerate each other.

Hey Cantor - the problem is not conservative intolerance. Conservatives are the most tolerant political constituency in the world. We want to be left alone and we are more than willing to leave others alone as long as they return the favor.

If you are going to talk about intolerance start with liberals. They are an order of magnitude more intolerant of opposing political viewpoints than are conservatives.

Tolerance is not the same as acceptance.

And acceptance of immoral acts is immoral.

So Eric, when do Gays start “tolerating” Christians and Muslims start “tolerating” Jews?

Tolerance for Gays and Muslims, because we all know how tolerant gays and muslims are.

Considering the level of tolerance shown toward opposing view-points (esp. in defense of religious freedom for traditional Christians and Jews) shown by the advocates of “gay marriage” and by Muslims, I’d say opposing both groups is striking a blow for tolerance.

As Andrew McCarthy says, the illusion that the Muslim Brotherhood is in any wise “secular” is a delusion. Kemalism in Turkey, which was secular, is quickly becoming a think of the past. Only those who dogmatically cling to the notion that their world view must eventually be accepted by everyone everywhere could be so blind to the facts. Ironically, what may save Israel is the discovery of oil and gas reserves off her shores. Then she will get a different response from liberals in Europe and America, who now seem to think that only this issue stands keeps the Islamic states from adopting the “western” way of life. It is the same kind of delusion that allowed Hitler to march from success to success right down to September, 1940.

Hey Cantor, how about tolerance for Chik-Fil-A?

After we defeat Zippy on Nov. 6th, we have to ditch the GOP and start a new third party. The GOP is beyond repair.

“In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.”—Jude 1:7

GOD’S intolerant Word makes it painfully clear what a losing proposition the “inclusion” gambit is.

Hey Cantor, if you read FR, I suggest you try to understand what happens to gays in muslime countries. Tolerance?? No way, they are executed.

I’ll tolerate the muslimes the same as I do snakes. Off with their heads. Gays.. not quite as bad as snakes.
