    Do Democrats think all religious views must be subjected to leftist secularist approval?

    It seems modern leftist Americans have no mercy on Christians who stand against homosexuality because God opposes sodomy. Should the state allow those Christians to be destroyed by the wicked for refusing to compromise their beliefs in the face of growing hostility against Christian beliefs?

    You want to live in a theocracy, move somewhere else.

    You think a country which protects the rights of Christians to freely exercise their religious views is some sort of bad theocracy? No wonder democrats hate Trump and his supporters.

    What a stupid post.

    I am for freedom of religion, and freedom from religion, and a clear separation of church and state. No one is keeping you from your religious practices.

    How do you feel about homosexual persecution of Christians?

    The law has nothing to do with Christianity. Or do you think an non-Christian photographer with an equally strong moral objection to same-sex marriage should still be forced to take the pictures?

    The situation is simple; The law prevents anyone from discriminating on a range of grounds, including race, religion, gender and sexual orientation. Why they’re discriminating is irrelevant. The only rational objection would be against those laws in their entirety. You can’t say “You can’t discriminate against me but I can discriminate against you”. It’s an all or nothing so if you’re arguing for the right of Christians to stand against homosexuality, you’re also arguing for the right of people to stand against religion, racial-equality and gender-equality.

    Unless, of course, you think Christians should get special protections, in which case why not go all out and campaign for a theocracy?

    Homosexuality is a lifestyle behavior and not an immutable characteristic. It is not characteristic of equality to force people to provide you services. If people are equals then either party has a right to deny service.

    The problem is, the far left will never let anyone but the Muslims have a theocracy. A Jewish homeland was created and look at how the leftists treat them.

    Despite your wishes, the USA is not going to become a theocracy (Christian or otherwise).

    Well that’s not true. Leftism is a religion in all but name and we’re rapidly becoming a theocratic state to this leftist religion
