The people that Believe any different ... Are the people that want to use their beliefs to stop what other people are doing. So basically ... You are asking me to what degree do I think we should use government (laws) ... To screw with what other people may believe. There is no difference in bullying people to make them do what you want ... Whether you beat them over the head with a stick ... Or make the excuse that getting the government to beat them over the head with a stick makes it any different. The best thing to do is settle it among yourselves. Make accommodations for those you support in a manner you and others can agree on ... And garner the extra support and rewards that come with managing your own affairs responsibly. Example ... I don't give a damn if Target has a policy saying trans-gender people can use whatever bathroom they want. I don't give a damn if Joe's Bait Shack has a policy that says you have to use a gender specific bathroom associated with your biological gender. I do give a damn if someone wants to pass a law saying Target or Joe's Bait Shop has to do something they don't want to do. But ... The problem is that crazy people keep insisting the government do something it is incapable of doing. It cannot treat anything equally ... There isn't a damn thing equal to something else outside of mathematics. The more people want to mess with stuff (interpretations) and the more they want to make the government the final say (law) ... The bigger the mess gets. .
