Couching bigotry in pseudo-intellectual jargon:
One of North Carolina’s leading anti-LGBT activists has told a slew of high-profile conservative leaders and attorneys that opposing a proposed non-discrimination ordinance in Charlotte will be a “good way to bring in business.” Fitzgerald made her remark in an email on Tuesday in response to Tom Ashcraft, a former U.S. attorney in Charlotte.
Ashcraft had called the LGBT-inclusive efforts “madness” in his original message to Fitzgerald. “May we conclude that the U.S. cultural revolution, started on multiple fronts in the 1960s, has begun to turn on itself? Or would this description be more accurate: The dictatorship of relativism shreds reason, leads to madness,” Ashcraft wrote to Fitzgerald.
I think it's safe to say, if you consider having the freedom to discriminate against somebody a "reasonable" position, you have already been struck by "madness" yourself. And if you took that same twisted mindset into the courtroom back when you were a prosecutor, there's no telling how many travesties of justice resulted from it.
