The previous point mentioned my reservation about secularists pushing their values on me. If you want to be secular this is up to you. This does not make you smarter or
more moral then I just different. I accept that religion will always be ethnocentric
and is not PC.
I do not have a problem with denominations that say as a non Christian I am hellbound. I do not have this problem comming from a mosque as well . Thus I do not understand the Fury of the Gay rights activists at churches that do not accept their agenda. The recourse is to find a Church or temple that is more Gay friendly and there are plenty. Life is unfair and everyone does not get every wish under the sun.
I would love to paint like Renoir but the problem is I have not one iota of talent.
However I do think the limit is reached when a religion starts advocating violence.
Thus that Redneck Church that 167 rails on would be endangering human rights if it
advocated killing Gays or assaulting them. They do have the right to say homosexuals
will burn in hell. They do not have the righy to create a lynch mob or a pogrom.
Thus my problem in this country is that there are some Mosques that advocate violence
in their sermons. If one wants to reside in this country there are some basic resposibilities .
Number 1 Your religious freedom ends when one you endanger the lives of others.
Number 2 Remember there are other religions and lifestyles be respectful as possible.
Number 3 Obey the laws of the land
Number 4 Residing in the USA is not a right unless you were born here. If you violate the laws out you go.
