I dont have any particular problem with the Mormon’s, but I dont want the government spending tax dollars funding a group that’s affiliated with a religious group, I think if some group is recieving federal money it should allow everyone to participate.

Protecting them from what exactly? It can’t be from sexual predators because if someone was a pedophile do you really think they’d say they were gay when they joined?

Then can I assume that you are for closing down all hispitals, battered women's and children's shelters, and all other charitable institutions run by religious groups that receive any government funds -- directly or indirectly??

Also, can I assume that you erroneously believe that complete "separation of church and state" is required by the Constitution. Right?

I dont really see how these organizations get money indirectly from the government, unless you mean at the state level. The Federal government should not be involved in this type of activity, the states are better able to determine their needs wrt their people and if the state governments want to provide money for shelters and charities then I'll deal with it at the state level, I'm talking federal level here.

Since you asked the question I'll answer it, yes, if the organization in question is getting Federal dollars to stay in operation then I would require that it not have religious connections (I wonder if a Mosque were to open up a soup kitchen and recieve Federal money to operate would you still have the same belief that the Government should be supporting such activities?)

Thats some fairly substantial research calling what I previously thought about homosexuals into doubt. You’ve given me some things to think about, as opposed to the other posters merely namecalling, which I ignore. I thank you for backing up your point with actual research.
