Why are you dead-set against "Conservative Christians" doing what is perfectly ok for them to do?
Is this for me? I'm not "dead set" against their right to their opinions. I find it disturbing (there I go with that word again), that they feel justified in opposing the rights of others based on their beliefs. I thought I made that clear earlier in the thread, but my apologies if that's not the case.

Perhaps I consider bringing the matter to the forefront of discussion (if only for a while in this limited forum) "doing something". It takes less time than writing a strong letter to my congressman and generates more awareness. But perhaps you'd rather I burn a church down or something.

Obviously, I do. If you don't that's your business and you're welcome to it. If you truly don't care though, why are you wasting your time in this thread? Seems a bit hypocritical, no?

Perhaps not. Then again, perhaps I am.

I don't find your apathy persuasive if that was your intent.

Whatever adjective makes you happy. Please feel free to address your letter to Merriam-Webster.

Out of curiosity, what does "sighted" faith look like? Also, how is it related to religion? Looking forward to your response.

Please show me where the Constitution makes any reference to god? Also, many of the Framers were deists.
Here is a link you might find beneficial.

Says the man that accuses me of watching too much news.

Bush admits that Iraq Had Nothing To Do With 9/11

You mean the Iraqi civil war?
