    We are, of course, speaking of northern & western Europe. Everything east of Germany and Austria and south of the Nordics is still European Dixieland.

      In theory, the communist Republicans killed a lot of Spanish Catholics in the name of no god.

      And I'd bet Joe killed a lot of his people because they dared to believe in god.

      None the less- my statement was supposed to be a broad brush containing all good and bad people.

          Religion isn't the problem. Just like every thing- it's the extremists who exploit it that makes it evil.
          As I said, I am all for religion. It is extremely useful.

                          Sucks that you'll have to wait that long. We all know the state leg Republicans won't pass it.

                                That argument always drives me batty.

                                Your freedom to swing your arms wildly ends at the bridge of my nose. No one really disagrees with this, right? So why is saying "your freedom to believe in whatever sky fairy you choose ends at the restriction of my rights to marry another consenting adult of my choosing" so horrendous? How is that, in any way, infringing on your rights?


                                Over the past 20 years I've evolved on a great many opinions, one of them is on the LGBTQ(plus whatever other letters belong here) rights. Even when I was firmly against same-sex marriage, I rejected the argument that same-sex marriage would impact anyone's religious freedom. It's just... a completely specious argument.
