    Oof, I voted for 'Global Warming is not man made'. Evidence contradicts this ideal, and even if it didn't, both climate change and environmental problems are a threat to our lifestyles and the stability of America society.

    So it is ok for secularism to be forced on religion, but not religion to be forced on secularism? Not that that's what is happening, but I want to see what your line of thinking is.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Re: Political ideal that is most out of touch with reality

    Almost every option is built off an extreme that almost no one believes.

    Even most on the right know that human activity has some level of affect on the environment. Most on the left know that other factors than humans affect climate change.

    Both your abortion options are vastly oversimplified.

    Your tax options are oversimplified and not exclusive.

    You immigration options are almost parodies of the actual positions.

    Your religious freedom options, the examples have nothing to do with religious freedom, and the left tends to be the ones most supportive of civil liberties(outside of guns).

    Based on that, I cannot answer your poll since I am not going to try and misrepresent what those on the right think.

    I thought the tax options represented what a lot of people think, actually.

    We could make it just a little more clear that NO religion has any right to try to shove its ideas down anyone's throat.

    No, but freedoms are always, by their very nature, limited. Just because you have freedom to believe something doesn't mean you have freedom to act on that belief.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Unfortunately, I've run into some who think that if humans would just quietly go extinct, everything will be fine.
