Ralph Reed: 'The Last Acceptable Form of Bigotry' Is Directed Against Evangelicals - VIDEO

Ralph ReedOn Tuesday, former Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed stopped by former Arizona congressman J.D. Hayworth’s NewsMax show to warn that “bigotry against evangelical Christians is the last acceptable form of bigotry left in the country.”

Reed, who last year called the Employment Non-Discrimination Act “a dagger aimed at the heart of religious freedom,” fittingly made the comments moments after Hayworth delivered a rant about how Muslim-Americans are apparently imposing Sharia law in Minnesota.

  1. They're really stretching and grasping now. When evangelicals aren't allowed to marry and a business denies them service because they are an evangelical....then let's talk.

  5. How many of these "last acceptable bigotries" are there? Philip Jenkins wrote a book telling us that anti-Catholic prejudice was the last acceptable bigotry. Pushy atheists noisily tell us that anti-atheist prejudice is the last acceptable bigotry. Now anti-evangelical Christian prejudice is the last acceptable bigotry. What other prejudice will be the next last acceptable one? What about the meaning of "last" escapes these people?

  7. Really, the last acceptable form of bigotry is against people who have no proof of their claims and yet want everyone else to live by their rules?

    I have no problem with that.

  8. Complete nonsense. Self proclaimed Christians account for about 80% of the people in this country.

  9. Christian Evangelicals have never known a second of state sponsored bigotry in the history of the USA. Never. They seem to think that if someone refuses to abide by their religious notions, then they are being discriminated against. Hell, if a gay person were to flee being stoned to death by these people who literally believe in the bible... I'm sure Ralph Reed would be complaining that the gay person is denying Christians their right to practice their religion (by stoning the gay guy to death!).

  12. Gay people don't wish to impose anything on anyone, but to lead our lives with dignity - like they do. What we seek to do is to bring a stop to *public* bigotry such as those revealed through business practices, homophobic attacks and loss of financial equality. I don't believe as a loose collective we care two hoots about what people privately think, but when those actions suppress our right to self determination and pursuit of happiness, that's unacceptable.

    Christians (and I am one) in addition to other groups, often wish to impose their views on others to the point of public suppression. Gay men and women aren't the only victims of their 'hatred'. They wish to prevent us forming life long, loving bonds with members of the same sex, they wish to deincentivise our couplings by penalising us through tax law and not recognising our unions. Us rejecting that suppression is NOT the same as us actively working against THEIR marriages, tax laws for different sex couples, and beating them up as they do to us. There is such a difference.

  13. boo-f**kin'-hoo, you da*n fool. Is anybody beating and killing evangelicals for being evangelicals? No, but plenty in your camp are doing that to us--or, at best, see nothing wrong with it.

  14. Now that they're losing, they're the victims. Christians have been claiming victim status since the ancient Roman era, but here they still are, persecuting and ostracizing people at will. We need more lions.

  15. LOL @ Ralph Reed.

  16. Bigotry requires prejudice.

    No one is judging these Evangelical "Christians" without knowing them, they are judging their ACTIONS.

    If you stop forcing EVERYONE to change to be the person you'll never be, you will be amazed at how less persecuted you'll feel. You have the power to change your own feelings! Free yourself!

  17. "The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice enforces federal statutes that prohibit discrimination based on religion in education, employment, housing, public accommodations, and access to public facilities."

  18. Living in Minnesota I'd like to hear more about Sharia law being imposed here. Oh, I forgot, Ralph Reed made the statement and he cares as much about facts as Michelle Bachmann.

  19. Religion has had the freedom over the years to support : war, pedophiles, the search for gold, conquest, colonization, not paying taxes. The list goes on and on. Let's not do a rewrite of history. And by all means do not misinterpret the meaning of the word bigotry.

  20. Nobody knows the trouble he's seen. When's the last time a Christian has been tortured,beaten or killed this country because of their beliefs?

  21. Nope. Idiot. Stop projecting.
