[font color=teal face=papyrus size=3] What really bothers me is that some of their arguments are straight out of the conservapedia.

Can you imagine any other group here on DU being told that their opinions about what they believe (or in this case not believe) and how they define themselves are invalid or of lower status than the opinions of the majority? That they are wrong simply because they are a minority?

I get that some of them don't like the stigma that comes with our label. But giving in to that only contributes to making the stigma worse. And when they try to create a new label solely for the purpose of setting themselves apart from us they redefine us and shame us.

That is bad enough when they do it in the other room, but it is a whole other thing when one of them comes into our safehaven and does it.
