    The government protects our rights... and that is pretty clear here. Protecting the rights of the discriminated.

    3. What is it so difficult to comprehend this?
    Its not difficult to understand at all...unless of course....you really really really really really wish it wasn't so.

    It's a concept that has been co-opted and corrupted for people who cant deal with authority and generally gain any for themselves.

    'Naturally' males just killed other males and took and raped women. Stole food and other resources at will. Their own bodies were not 'property,' that is a legal concept. Infringing on the rights of others is a legal concept. You can infringe on the rights of another person and it has nothing to do with their bodies being property. Rights and laws were developed to enable humans to live in groups that optimally successfully produce the most offspring. It was a natural process to do so I suppose...one developed from the instincts of survival.


    Edit: It's also often co-opted by the religious fundamentalists....until they bump against the actual science behind 'natural.' lol

    You mean the rights that apparently both of you think they made up. We call that privileges, not rights.

    There is no "religious freedom" or "right" to discriminate. I know you folk are trying to use your religion as a shield to violate the law....but you can't do it. Sorry.

    I find it quite hilarious how many so called "religion" advocates are fighting so hard to engage in their discrimination and bigotry. If they spent even 1/2 the energy just trying to be more "Christ-like" or spending time actually studying the teachings of Christ.....they would be much better off.
