The Response Rally the only thing political about it was the media covering it

Houston, TX – There was a smattering of protesters greeting attendees of the Response Rally in Houston, Texas on Saturday. No more than two or three dozen by my estimation compared to more than 25,000 who flocked to Reliant Stadium to pray for a nation in crisis.

The majority of the protesters were there in support of gay marriage. There were also a few people who were protesting for separation of church and state and, of course, there were a few atheists protesting God knows what.

A representative from Americans United for a Separation of Church and State was passing out a press release from their leader, Reverend Barry Lynn that asserts that Governor Perry is not recognizing “America’s wide spiritual diversity.”

Perhaps the good reverend would be better served to study his bible rather than Alinsky since his church has more in common with the radical socialist left-wing in this country than it does with mainstream Christianity.

Reverend Lynn talks about America’s great diversity but even with our vast melting pot more than three-quarters of Americans consider themselves to be Christian. Even with this overwhelming Christian majority, nothing prevents Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, or any other religion in America from building places of worship. Nor does anything prevent Atheists from not participating religious activities.

I won't accept any government edict that attempts to forcibly require me to publicly associate in my private capacity as a citizen, with individuals I personally deem repugnant.

So to all the atheists, drug abusers, Democrats, murderers, rapists, homosexuals seeking legal marriage rights,Islamics,thieves, perverts,illegal aliens, fraudulent welfare abusers, elected politicians,liars, cheaters and just mean people in general...
I totally agree that I have absolutely no legal right to kill you, just because I don't like you. I can and will frown at you. Deal with it.

You are just going to have to accept that you have no legal right to attempt to force me to pretend that I approve of your “choices”. Feel free to frown at me all you want.
