    Seems like every time religious people affirm their belief in God and things Godly over things sinful that are accepted and embraced by man we get slammed as bigots and intolerant people, well what the heel do you want us to do, join you in your sinful lifestyles just to prove we're tolerant and not bigots? It seems the true bigots are these sexual and anti-religious liberals who bash those who choose God over sin. Just as faggots have the first amendment to "come out" and spread their bogus claims of homosexuality we religious people have the same rights in regards to our religion, stop trying to shut us up so you can have a solo voice.

    We are being conditioned by the elite that when we hear of religion we will have a conditioned response to feel negative. This is why many people will answer the same way when religion is brought up in regards to public life.

    lol...

    You whine about being accused of intolerance and bigotry and start off by posting a hateful post.
    You have the right to practice your faith, you have the right to express your hate – no one is trying to stop you, your perception of this is an incorrect inference.

    Otherwise, I’ll assume you’re inferring that certain civil rights litigation with regard to same-sex marriage is somehow ‘forcing’ you to accept a practice you consider sinful, immoral, and wrong. Indeed, I’ll go so far as to speculate that you believe such behavior to be detrimental to society as a whole.

    And you’re well within your right to believe that. Acting on it is another matter, however, as there is no evidence in support of your opinion. Without objective, documented evidence, a given jurisdiction has no grounds to preempt a citizen’s rights, even if the majority considers it appropriate.

    And if anyone tries to shut you up, let me know – I have no problem defending ignorant, hateful bigots.

    If you try and plunge into the inadequacies of human thought and behavior, you will only be dumbfounded and frustrated by the illusiveness of any conclusive answers.

    Most peoples beliefs are based on subjective emotional impulses, as a result they exist inside a recurring loop of irrationality. They are not in a position to posit what is right or wrong as their foundational basis of thinking is flawed by their limited, illusory insight.

    There is Order in the Universe which can be observed OBJECTIVELY, and through the elucidation of this Order it is possible to arrive at a place of understanding, where right and wrong can correctly be understood.

    True – hence the Constitution and the rule of law.

    Dude... you can affirm your beliefs in any manner you choose. I am Christian Progressive that believe Jesus' message of NOT JUDGING others and loving one another pretty much trumps all of the rules in the bible. The simple fact is... we are all forgiven. All we have to do is accept the gift.

    You have no clue the heart of another man. None of us do. That makes us not worthy to judge another. Especially when we are just as flawed as anyone else. Let God do the judging. Live your life as you see fit to do. If that involves abstaining from all you think is wrong... great, do it. If that means you choose not to associate with people you think aren't godly. Great.

    But don't sit here and talk about freedom and the Constitution on one thread and then try to manipulate those very same things to fit your religious agenda.

    That's hypocritical as hell.

    Let me guess....you believe that you are a follower of the prince of peace, right?

    Your GOD is a loving god, right?

    Now reread the hateful blather you just posted, brother.
