First, this is the official policy of the armed services, sure it
is now don't ask don't tell, but when the find out people get booted (or
There is a large difference between intolerance and disliking. Rush does
not like that view point; however, he is tolerant (i.e. he will listen to
it) he allows gay people on his show, this alone proves my point.
If you want to broaden the definition of bigot to include Rush Limbaugh,
then you better watch out because it would probably include you as well
(reread your post and check out the tone if you do not believe me).

i forget who posted it, but checkout your login name, if you really
believed this crap, then why is "wipeout" your name...and the response
that you gave was that only a feww intellectuals knew what you were
saying....if you really believe what you quoted, then you should know
that the relative nature of your harm is a shit answer, that is like a
murderer saying well at least i didn't eat them like jeff dahmer did,
that person is still a murderer.
I guess I will offer a quote, although I am not sure of the source, but I
learned it somewhere between nursery school and kindergarten..."sticks
and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me!"
> rush limbaugh is a bigot. simple.

you live in a sel delusional world if you believe that rush is as evil as
they come...ever heard of hitler or satan?

i guess you'll have to try again another time,..i remain unconvinced, but
then again if rush is your version of the world's most evil person I
doubt you could convince me!
