Bravo. Probably the best post I've ever read from them, and I read them every single day.
Pretty "American" sounding, no? What part of that suggests that we discriminate? What part of that says that people should be limited in their choice of who they love? Or marry? What part of ANY of this allows one person to use their "deeply held religious beliefs" to harm another?
YOUR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM ENDS AT THE TIP OF MY NOSE.
I don't want my country back. I want a better country. One that truly provides liberty and justice for all people. And I certainly don't want a country where anyone can discriminate against anyone else of whom they do disapprove and escape liability for that immoral and otherwise unlawful act under any pretext, be it freedom of religion, racial superiority or traditional values.
I never want to go back to the country that existed when I was born. The one that exists now needs far too much improvement as it is.
Bravo, Steven. Bravo.
