    Certainly not, but the logical extension of your argument is that you'd be against the Civil War.

    Linear thinking is not thinking. The world is far more complex than that.

    Politicians are liars so, why wouldn't they just lie about that?

    FWIW, The Texas law has never been challenged or revoked or used in modern times. Much ado about nothing.

    I edited my response to include:

    Sometimes people need to be treated differently for the betterment of everyone else.
    The concepts of "freedom" and "rights" are a balancing act. At some point your freedom starts to infringe on other's and we need to determine where to go forward. Not everyone can do what they want, when they want, how they want.

    States Rights, yes? When the world is more complex then your simple equation, you revise the equation. So obviously then you're not ALWAYS for State Rights over Federal Rights as you make it seem when you discuss discrimination and bigotry against atheists. States Rights sometimes, but Federal power should the States not perform the way you think they should.

    Atheists don't have protections, as you said. So obviously I couldn't have been asking about atheists.

    I'm not sure really, giving atheist rights takes away religious peoples rights.

    Which groups, specifically, need to be treated differently for "the betterment of everyone else"?

    You mean getting rid of laws that restrict atheist representation and participation in government would take away your rights? Your right to what? Keep me out of office because I don't believe in the same god you do? Sounds very Middle East to me.
