    Well, gays are just normal people, and are subject to the same religious vulnerabilities as anyone else. Where you expecting me to grant gays magical abilities?

    As for magic, you have your own magical beliefs - that the universe suddenly appeared out of nothing as if it were a magician's trick, and that the first incredibly complex living cell suddenly appeared out of primordial swamp slime, etc.
    I believe in science, not magic. My understanding of the universe is flexible, since science is not a doctrine but a methodology of understanding natural phenomena.

    My experiences tell me yes, all people who strictly try to follow ancient religions are bigots. I'm curious of other peoples opinions on this.
    Nah, no more than anyone else. The religious institutions are bigoted though and of course the bigots who run them influence everyone else into being bigoted. It's a simple method of control. Humans love distinction. We love to think we are better than another group so it's always popular to incite bigotry.

    just look how far the progressive left has gotten by race baiting.

    Its fair of you to jump to that conclusion, but you'd be wrong. I have never told someone to stop telling me about their faith. I have never shunned someone for speaking of it or practicing their religion. And I have never been angered and hurt someone because of their religion.
    Quite the opposite actually. I ask questions and try to understand why they are so compelled by their faith.
    I will admit I am not a fan of religion. I think religion is an unnecessary tool that was supposed to teach us moral integrity but failed due to compounding contradictions. I am able to dislike something and still find reasons and methods to tolerate that which I don't like.

    Its called "atheists," you are welcome.

    Interesting observation.

    You would win the bet.

    It definitely does not applies to Pagans. When I mention "religion" I speak of the religion that Albanians prescribe to, and those are: Muslim, Catholic, and Orthodox Christian.

    I don't know anybody like that except for some posing as Christians.

    As for magic, you have your own magical beliefs - that the universe suddenly appeared out of nothing as if it were a magician's trick, and that the first incredibly complex living cell suddenly appeared out of primordial swamp slime, etc.

    Personally,
    Last time I checked, it was the christians, not the atheists, claiming the universe was created by a cosmic magician.

    As much as you'd like it to be, science =/= magic.

    So United Methodist doesn't count as a religion for you?

    You would be hard pressed to find one in his country. What is a "united" Methodist, as opposed to a plain Methodist?
