At least that's been my observations anytime you read a forum or site that caters to that demographic. Preach tolerance and acceptance and bash the fuck outta anything or anyone conservative. It's pot meets kettle in it's truest form.

In general, I don't disagree completely with you, but one of the things that I find some conservatives - and I'm not saying you here - seem to believe is that being tolerant means you need to be tolerant of other people's intolerance. We don't need to be tolerant of racism, we don't need to be tolerant of sexism, etc. And some conservatives approach the situation that way - and yes, they tend to be religious.

I get the hate for the church given their views on the topic, I don't get the hate for conservatives in general though.

I think it's a case of some conservatives giving the rest a bad name. Or, perhaps, that conservatives have some really bad spokespeople - especially in the US. One only need look at the likes of Glenn Beck or Ann Coulter, for example.

Hell the world would be so far better off without religion in the first place to be honest.

You can get unqualified agreement from me on that one.
