Subject: RE: BS: Giving up religion for Lent...
It's no good calling us guests bigots, it advances nothing. If we descend to that level we just call you bigot back.
A belief is essentially an unproven and unprovable thing, as is unbelief. All I ask is that religion is kept out of politics, schools, and the lives of others who choose not to follow faith. Freedom should mean what it says, individual choice. If, for instance, homosexuality is considered by those of faith to be "sinful" whatever that is, then they need not practice it, But why do so many get so hot under the collar about those who do? Leave them alone! They're doing you no harm. Preaching freedom and living freedom appear to be very different things.After all isn't it part of your general belief that we were given free will by your god? If you believe that then you must allow people to exercise it. Surely that's all part of your god's plan?
