And your beliefs in your own small sect of the worlds religions justifies denying them the right to marry under another religion?
I fail to see what makes Christians the authority here.
It also doesn't justify the derogatory preachings against those who aren't accepted into the Christian religion... nor the Christian faiths history
of violence towards those who they don't deem "pure".
No I'm sorry... I can't accept Christians as a moral authority over the worlds religious practices.
If you don't want them marrying as Christians, then that's between you and your church. There are plenty of other religions to marry under... or...
you can get married without a religion too.
Christians are not an authority on this matter.
If you take away the right of these people to marry under any religion or lack of... then it gives you the authority to determine which other
religions are allowed to marry in your country as well.
And that my friend... is fascism.
Just because you or your sect don't like it, doesn't mean the rest of us have to obey.
I'm an Atheist... and I'm entitled to marriage. No god, no religion, but I can still marry... you going to tell me I'm not entitled to marriage as
To Atheists and Agnostics...
I know we don't usually agree with each other over morality issues, as our morals are created and kept by us as individuals... but I for one am
choosing a side here. I'm backing the gays. I can't tell you what to do, as it violates the purpose of us all choosing to separate from religion...
but I feel inclined to urge you, we need to start defending the gays.
Not for their sake, but for ours.
If we let the religious groups get away with dictating who can and cannot marry... then we're next.
You might not feel the gay's cause is worth stepping into... but I'd rather stop this now, with them, than let the religious fundamentalists begin
targeting us with their fascist approach to morality next.
I don't want to see morality control handed to the same organization who caused the crusades, and so many other hate based garbage through
I'll see what I can do about taking a stand where I'm needed.
If you're with me, great, if you're not, I understand. I don't expect unity from atheists or agnostics... all I can do is urge you through
