“To know a person's religion we need not listen to his profession of faith but must find his brand of intolerance.”

    The major ones seem to have 2 major intolerances – Gays and other religions. So no, I don’t think you could figure out which faith someone belongs to by who they are bigoted against.

    This tongue in cheek quote makes a valid point, however, in linking religion to bigotry. Witness Proposition (H)8 in California stating that marriage is between a man and a woman. How, with Mr. Jefferson’s wall of separation, did 5% of the population find themselves in the position of black and white couples prior to civil rights? Easy – God hates fags (though the hard-hearted, omniscient old sod knew they’d be gay before he made ’em)

    I agree with Chris. Most religions have the same intolerances so you can’t tell by that alone.

    I propose a ban on assholes marrying and propagating more assholes…
