"Because everyone exists therefore everyone has an opinion and all opinions are of the same value. Who can argue otherwise? Since we all exist we all have valid opinions."
That isn't what I said. That's your philosophy, not mine. You're the moral relativist. You're the one who thinks that anything a government does is not wrong, because,well, the government is THE LAW. Not that that matters, you have already stated you are incapable of making rational decisions. You know of no rational basis to choose what is moral or not moral. There are other people too in society who also can't make rational choices. They're called children. Do your parents know you are using their computer?
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. " (John 3:16)
Why do you believe the Bible? If you can't make rational decisions, how did you happen to believe this? I am serious.
If the Government outlaws Christianity (including all appropriate amending to the Constitution), would you obey?, because, as you have said earlier,
"If there(sic) laws allow it, that is what makes it right."
Would it be right? How could you know without the ability to make rational decisions?

Why do you believe the Bible? If you can't make rational decisions, how did you happen to believe this? I am serious. Okay, I'll be serious. I believe that when I was baptized the Holy Spirit worked faith in my heart. It had nothing to do with me, it was all His work. So many have an opportunity to believe, especially those who have been baptized. However, God does not make us robots and therefore we still have the ability to deny the validity of God and His Holy Word. It is only by His grace and mercy that a person continues to believe. All the credit goes to God. I am not capable of believing without Him working faith in me. Rational? No. True? Yes. That is the reason that people who think rationally usually reject God because the thought of a God who could accomplish so much is just not rational and therefore unbelievable.
