    So.... you're stating that if you found yourself forced to practice some religion not of your choice, you'd take no exception to it at all, you'd not complain, even to yourself, and you'd happily accept it.
    Right?

    Which is why I voted for water, I think the "rights" here, to a certain extent, disabilitates people from performing the best of their capabilities, and moral duties. This is, again, to an extent mind you.

    water makes me happy so its a double win. but rights are extended to however far the person can get.
    It's not rape if you scream "SURPRISE" first.

    Right?
    Changing the goal posts from "rights" to something we are forced to do?

    Personally, I would work to change the rules the country made up, just like the people that made up the rules in our Constitution.

    They are just rules made up by people. As someone has already mentioned they are not commandments handed down on tablets by god, as much as some imagine they are.

    How did the god-given rights work out for the Japanese Americans forced into internment camps?

    Or the rights of African Americans, or lack thereof, by the people that made up our rules?

    You are not answering my question.
    But, to that question, I'll add another:
    Why?

    Unhappiness or dissatisfaction. What's the basis for any complaint?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
