Tolerance vs. Rationalism[edit]

I think that here, for the most part every RW editor will consider tolerance overall as a virtue. However, we're not about tolerance as such, except inasmuch as it invariably seems to prove a virtue when rationalist principles are applied to the world. Deepak Chopra is well-known to be a supporter of liberal causes as well -- should we fail to call him out for his fraudulent "medicine" and his media whoring (especially as his association with the HuffPo has cost Arianna Huffington quite a bit of credibility)? Ward Churchill is a promoter of Native American issues -- "little Eichmanns" soundbite aside, should we cover up the fact that he likely lied about his ancestry and apparently has a history of plagiarism because he's a fellow-traveler? The ends does not justify the means, and just because someone may be right about one thing doesn't mean they're not an idiot overall. EVDebs 16:06, 17 December 2007 (EST)

Edit warring considered harmful[edit]

This edit warring is becoming tiresome. Please cease and desist; if you wish to pursue the case further, make your argument on talk:Uri Geller rather than continuing to revert against consensus. EVDebs 14:20, 18 December 2007 (EST)
