O.K. to Bash Christians?

It appears that tolerance is available to just about everyone except people of faith.

We can speak of tolerating the viewpoint of witches, while a member of the EU is asked to step down because he thinks homosexuality is a sin.

Sistersophist has an interesting post on the Born-Again Bashing that has followed the high turnout of evangelical voters.

She says of one pundit's comments on Christian voters, "His obvious derision made me think, 'This man would never have referred to the African-American vote, or the Jewish vote, or even the Communist vote in that disparaging way.' No, but Born Agains are fair game, perhaps the last group that it's acceptable to bash."
