No, I didn't say that's okay, and I'm not aware of Chris saying it. At
this point you've been reading far too much into what isn't there, and
now you're just flatly stating untruths.

Bigotry against people for innate traits is not okay.

Demanding special respect for a class of ideas is not okay.

Wringing your own impression out of people's words, and then claiming
that's what they said, is not okay.

I hope that clarifies.
