Ouch, that's nasty. LOL.
So I guess you support more tolerance, after all, everything is our fault. Live and let live then they'll leave us alone, right?
I didn't say anything about religion, just a moral code. Of course, there's the no moral code code of the humanist.
Sorry. this isn't the middle east, nor will it become one.
I'm digging in, not packing bags...

but your own post contradicts itself. for most of this country's existence those groups of people were discriminated against. wasn't this country supposed to be equal treatment, equal rights for all? not just white anglo saxon protestant men? (women had no vote remember up until 1914. just shy of 100 years)
as for libertarians. a couple of elections ago, bill maher had the libertarian presidential candidate on his show. bill asked him about regulations. he said "no regulations."
what about health regulations and inspections on food.
still no regulations, market will work it out.
so, if a company sells tainted meat and people get sick and die, that is okay?
if that happens, then people will just stop going there.
how many people have to die until that happens?
the candidate had no answer for that. government DOES have a small role in public life.

So what you say the humanist has a moral code. the only one I've seen is perfectly detailed in your post. Hating any and all religions and their moral codes.
What, other than your vent, has added to human morals that hasn't been covered by the Judeo-Christian morals?
I'm all ears.....
I answer I DON'T CARE. I want our culture to win no matter who's pulling the damn strings. We can always take care of them afterwards. We outnumber them by just a bit...
Truth be told, the reason we are in this mess is due, at least partially, to having already being suck into "live and let live". We've done it with our culture, our language, our institutions, our gov't...the list is a long one.
A Republic, has a very different purpose and an entirely different form, or system, of government. Its purpose is to control The Majority strictly, as well as all others among the people, primarily to protect The Individual’s God-given, unalienable rights and therefore for the protection of the rights of The Minority, of all minorities, and the liberties of people in general.
If the people taking part of the market are moral people and by and large practice at the very least the Golden Rule, then they shouldn't be out to take advantage of others in a dishonest manner.
