    There are very few countries that ban religion. I do not know where you got your information from. Maybe you meant that 1 religion is allowed in some countries and no others but in most countries at least one religion is allowed and in most countries freedom of religion is possible.

    So moving to a country that bans religion is extremely difficult and for an American moving to one would be next to impossible.

    Banning religion is utterly ridiculous. Why would you do something like that. Allow freedom of religion instead, allow every to choose to belong to a religious organization/faith or not to belong to one, there is no need for a ban.

    If you would have stated that states should refrain from promoting one faith above all others or making 1 faith a state religion, then maybe I could agree with you. But if 90% of you population is of one specific faith, why should they not make that a state religion as long as they guarantee the freedom of religion for the other 10 percent and do not make laws that would interfere with that freedom of religion?

    If would also have agreed that it should not be allowed to take your religious book and make it into the blueprint for your criminal laws on a 1 on 1 basis (like someone using the things illegal in bible or qu'ran and giving the penalty that is mentioned there because those punishments are cruel and mostly immoral and unimaginable in the 21st century).

    I am an atheist and even I do not want a ban on religion. If you want more freedom for people, you don't start with making something illegal that gives a lot of joy and mental freedom for a lot of people like religion.

    Nice dodge, you hate religion. almost 90% of the people in this country believe in God and adhere to some religion.If you don't like it don't let the door hit you in t he ass on the way out......We have people dying so you can speak your peace about religion....That is the sad part. Lefties like you and your daddy Obama are slowly destroying this country.

    I can't believe you say that..I already listed the countries that say join Islam or you are a infidel that must die.

    I understand not wanting the word marriage for homosexual couples but if the government wants to regulate marriage (via license) then their should equal application of the law for hetero and homo sexual couples.

    You understand that 1) the federal government hasn't been passing any laws in and of themselves concerning who can and can't get married. That has be left to the states. 2) When the states are left to choose their own laws and no federal government intervention occurs, that allows one state to say you are married and another to declare your marriage null and void on a legal level if you become a resident of that second state.

    And you still fail on this argument, even when quoting the very text that shows your comment failing. You can't be in a country that says that only one religion will be allowed and say that the country bans religion. It doesn't ban religion, a statement that would be all inclusive. Those countries ban all but one, if they even ban that many. You are challenged to back up your statement by finding a country that actually bans religion period. Or be a man and admit and maintain the argument that you are discussing countries that ban all but one. But you still have to show that they actually ban all but Islam, as in cite the laws.

    Then as said you did not mean "ban religions" but ban some religions, which is not want you stated because you said:

    Because if they say join Islam they cannot possibly be banning religion because Islam is a religion. And that would make them not ban religions but only allow 1 religion and one is not the same as none thus they would not be banning religion at all.

    That was my point… religion has done more 'damage' throughout the existance of religion that 'gay marriage' will ever do to marriage.

    There is a big difference between consensual homosexuality and homosexual rape. It's the latter that is addressed in the bible. There is also a difference between consensual homosexuality and homosexuality based on pagan rituals. It is the latter that is addressed in the Bible.
