    Typical BS attempt to justify an out of date paradigm using bronze age mythology. Deal with it. Gay marriage, no marriage, and polyamoury are here to stay. No amount of preaching or praying are going to reverse freedom.

    Eda, I know exactly what a libertarian is. I also know that we scare the crap out of the Christian right and they will do whatever they can to shut us down. It is not the libertarians who are calling for Roe to be reversed, or the gay marriage ruling to be repealed, or censorship of media and games, or the war on drugs to be continued, or adult entertainment places to be closed, or for dress codes to be instituted, or for any number of other things that the Christian right wants prohibited or restricted because they feel they are ‘sin’. I don’t care what, who, or how you worship. Knock yourself out. But leave me and others alone, don’t come trying to ‘save’ me, and don’t get the idea that we will let you tread on our sinful freedoms. We have just as much right to be sinful and hedonistic as you do to be pious and upright. You really should try to understand that whole ‘free will’ concept and stop your efforts to limit it.

    Whose God? Yours or mine? And before you start with the ‘only one God’ bit, let me remind you that there is absolutely no proof for any god. My faith is just as valid and strong as yours. This country was founded on the principles of freedom and the Enlightenment. Let me also remind you that the Bill of Rights contradicts at least 6 of the commandments, so how do you justify saying that it was founded on christian principles?

    Let’s not forget trying to wipe out the native Americans, starting wars we have no business in, and permitting corporate greed to put people into destitution and bankruptcy. But yeah, transgender bathrooms and sex outside marriage is going to be the tipping point. Idiots!

    Your ‘deviant behaviour’ and ‘immorality’ are other people’s freedom. The freedom that is guaranteed in the First Amendment. You do not have the right to override that based on your personal beliefs. Your Bible is not the law of the land, neither is it the only holy book in this country.

    P3P. Yes, I think all 501C tax breaks should be eliminated. What we have seen, mostly in the south, is a Concerted attempt to push Christianity while trying to hold back other faiths and non faiths. Schools ignore laws demanding neutrality so they can push their evangelical bull****.

    And yet, both state and fed pass laws that exempt churches from taxes, that exempt them from equal opprtunity laws, that accept clerical immunity in trials. How are these not laws that aid religion? Then, look at laws that target certain religions- animal sacrifice for Santerians, sky clad worship for pagans, even Muslim calls to prayer. Finally, look at the advantages given to Christianity like the right to exclude non Christians from the high school microphone, the podium at public meetings, or the town green at holiday times. Government ignores the establishment cause as a matter of course.

    Not to hear the Christian right and the Dominionists tell it.

    Yeah, that 3/5 of a person thing and massacring the native population were both sooooooo godly.

    I’ve been arguing that we should cut all ties to Saudi since long before 9/11. These are the people pushing the worldwide califate crap.

    Religious freedom is never about eliminating persecution and discrimination. It’s about who gets to do the persecuting.

    So they are worse than others, agreed. Does that mean we should give a pass to the less bad?

    Bu**er their Islamic traditions. No religion, let me repeat that, NO RELIGION has the right to control or place restrictions on anyone not of that religion. Islamic, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, whatever. Their rules, morals, and doctrine apply only to those people who belong to that religion and wish to comply.

    Ah, but I do like western civilisation, just not what has developed in the US in the last 30 years or so. We were doing fine back in the colonial days, back in the days of the old west, and even back in the 20′s. Came the end of WWII and there was a rebirth of American puritanism. We fought that in the 60′s and won. Since then, though, there has been a concerted effort to take back the freedoms that the 60′s and early 70′s gave us. Western civilisation is great, it affirms the freedom of the individual. Current Christian right wing ideals seek to roll back those freedoms and to take civilisation backwards.

    There is a difference between hearing something and being forced, at point of law, to comply. divorce laws, for instance, are based on Christian ideals. Infidelity is part of it, even though other religions have no proscription against it. Child support is based on the Christian idea of what family should be and slanted towards the woman. The whole gay debate is being fought based on Christian proscriptions. I am perfectly capable of ignoring speech, and I do so, most of the time. I am not free to ignore laws that are passed to support the Christian idea of what a family should be or what society should be. I don’t care what, who, or how you worship, but please stop engineering society to one particular point of view, and let people live however they wish.

    But what about the non Christians, the athiests, and those who just don’t care (the nones)? What about their First Amendment rights to practice something other than Christianity? The first Amendment is quite clear about not establishing a national religion, but it seems the Christian right is determined to do exactly that. 70 years ago, it was not a big issue since 99% of the US was Christian, but with world travel being common, immigration of non Christians, and the internet’s information revolution, that is no longer the case. Most people are not saying that you don’t have the right to be Christian and to worship as you wish, but there are many of us who are saying that we are not Christian, and the First Amendment gives us the right to be free from Christian ideals, dogma, and morals. What about existing and worshipping for yourselves and not forcing the rest of us, explicitly or not, to comply?

    I don’t deny that the country and much of the world is heading down hill. Whether it’s the Muslims in the middle east and elsewhere, or the Christian right in this country and elsewhere, they are trying to prevent us from advancing in the 21st century. We are no longer an illiterate tribal society in a harsh environment, which is the basis of all three Abrahamic religions. Time to get those ideas out of government policy everywhere and start thinking of logic, science and freedom as our national goals.

    Yeah, auto correct is a bitch. I would hire people from tech schools if I really want a job done. College degrees are pretty much useless in the business world. MBAs are idiots and HR degrees have no clue. Even engineering degrees have no clue how to translate their book learning into producing something on the shop floor. We need college degrees to maintain our historic culture, history, art and music. Beyond that, I see no point.

    So, women should stop wearing pants and dress only in long skirts and headscarves? Because that’s what you are proposing when you say men should only dress as men. It works both ways. We should all use a single bathroom. Separate facilities is a stupid idea to begin with.
