    But you can laugh at them.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The problem is that while some of us are laughing, some of them are working hard to put bad laws in force.

    Well, bestiality is legal in more states than gay marriage is.

    I didn't say we should only laugh, but it is part of the program. The more we can expose their absurd beliefs for the laughable nonsense that they are, the less traction they're going to get when the propose action based on their asinine faith.

    Hey, I laugh at them all the time, but I'm sure that you agree we must do more than just laugh, we must work keep these people and those that they support out of positions of power.

    The churches are meant to Shepard people to the Lord. As long as they are violating their own theology of reaching out to those poor in spirit they are divided against themselves. The churches will evolve or die. I think the only one out of the four you listed will be the Catholic church. The baptist church is to weak and young. The theology is back ward and broken and frankly I find that its on its way out anyway.

    The Mormon church is a cult. They will collapse as all cults do.

    The methodist church may see the flaw in their bias and correct it.

    The Catholic church has weathered the worst storms and have the ability to adapt and over come. I think they are reluctant but will eventually accept reality and survive.

    You forgot the evangelical church, assembly of God, pentecostal and seventh day adventists. But they will adapt or die just the same as all others.

    Going to a Christian church does not make you a Christian.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Since you don't know a freeking thing about Christianity, let me lend you a clue: Christianity is for sinners, and we are all sinners.
    Yes, but does that make everyone a Christian? No. Try again.

    This is fascinating. For whatever twisted reason, you actually do believe that it is hatred that gives meaning to life?

    Of course, you are not alone (I've mentioned the Commies and the Nazis before), but what a remarkable sideways leap of faith - to imagine yourself an instrument of judgment on behalf of a hypothetical being, based on reasoning you or I cannot possibly comprehend...

    There's a very simple and very sad alternative explanation, of course: The elementary lust for power. Force your neighbor to conform - or else.

    Personally, I think it is disgusting, but clearly disgust wouldn't be a good argument, considering the topic. Moral considerations would not play either, since you have already jettisoned them to make space for your confessional taboos. But there is still one argument left - a cold, pragmatic, "conservative" argument: Your own personal safety - or perhaps safety of people like you, some generations later.

    The State empowered to judge what kind of interaction between consenting adults is OK and what is not - such State will not stop when it runs out of homosexuals (Jews, Poles, Gypsies, kulaks, "bourgeoisie", people wearing glasses...). The wheels will keep spinning.

    The 20th century was a lot fun - check it out. And Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot did not have computer databases and GPS tracking at their fingertips....

    Have we learned absolutely nothing?
