When I'm cleaning windows

Don't we use these windows when it suits us? Nick bounds the debate as one of "toleration" of "difference". Therefore an atheist who won't bow to the say-so of a(nother) fundamentalist faith is just not being pluralist, lacking open-mindedness. Toxic, and a bully! Right and wrong, an improved world, fairness, at any level, is framed below the "level playing field" Nick assumes everything deserves. This level playing field doesn't apply to rock music. And what about bankers? Can't the majority voice tolerate their difference just a little bit? Bankers are the new Sioux!

A weed is not always just another kind of flower. If some things are "toxic", what is the boundary? They impinge on the freedoms of others? They dominate by sex and not by race? They DON'T represent our own background? They DO represent our own background? It's all too unscientific..
