    Sex with drugs might be even greater.

    Oh, I don't know, I think you are really reaching here. "Sorcery" is invocation of spirits/gods/demons, witchcraft. In some cultures such rituals are accompanied by consumption of (hallucinogenic) narcotics, but I doubt it was widespread in either the Hellenistic society or among the Semitic tribes. The Dionysian Mysteries - sure, but that's all about wine, once again. In any case, the blanket condemnation of sorcery in Leviticus makes no connection to any substance abuse: "mediums and necromancers", sober or high - doesn't matter.

    Interesting poll, forcing us to choose only one, lol! I would have voted for them all!

    Clearly, ending the institutionalized discrimination of homosexuals is a civil/human rights issue, and must be our first priority. Until homosexuals are equal in all facets of American life, including the right to marry, then we will never truly be the land of the free.

    I should say, I am little surprised at the results (so far). I would assume that most people in the "socially liberal" segment of our population - whether they are libertarians, moderates or social-democrats - will give the highest priority to abolishing the most destructive prohibitions. Instead, they opt for the issue that already has the most momentum.

    Don't get me wrong, I was for gay rights long before it was fashionable, but innocent bystanders are not dying in drive-by shootings because of some turf wars between gays and straights, and nobody's daughter is in danger of overdosing on her low-quality lesbianism, purchased on a street corner.

    Equality-shmequality. A great man of letters said once that all morality is based on the sense of proportion....

    As I said, I would have voted for them all. However, for me this is a consitutional issue. Until every segment of our society enjoys equal protection and equal rights, that should be our main priority as a people.

    I understand what you are saying, just as I would have understood if you had said the same in the 60's, where there were immensely pressing problems. I would have said then as I say now, the Civil Rights of all citizens, not just some citizens, should take precedence. I imagine that oppressed blacks living under institutionalized discrimination back in the day would agree. Fortunately, enough citizens of every race agreed that Civil Rights were passed, and no individuals regardless of race, religion, gender, ethnicity, etc., could be legally discriminated against.

    Except for homosexuals.

    Time to right the wrong, and yes, it's at the top of my personal list.

    Gay marriage is the only one I would support, so given that I would rather have that than the others.
