We are a democracy, the republic died a long time ago. I respect your right to religion but it has nothing to do with me, respect my right of no religion.
“We are a democracy, the republic died a long time ago.”
I disagree with that.
As to respecting your right of no religion, most of our laws are Biblical. Thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness, thou shalt not murder. I was reflecting the other day that our bankruptcy laws, where the record is wiped clean after seven years, are a reflection of Biblical law, which requires all debts to be wiped out every seven years. Inheritance law, all sorts of laws are Scripture based.
Having laws based on Biblical morality does not disrespect your right to be an atheist. As a matter of fact, were we to strike all laws that reflected Biblical morality, we’d pretty much have no laws left at all.
No, people in many states vote, only to have despots in black robes overturn their ballots... Oligarchy of the bar associations is more accurate...
I'm an atheist.
Evolution can only happen with HETEROSEXUAL relationships.
Homosexuality is a fetish. Marriage is a fetish. Religion is a fetish. Monogamy is a fetish...
You don't respect my right of no religion, why should I give a damn about your fetish?
