I don't care WHAT a person thinks in their mind or how they live in their personal homes or churches. What bugs me are the MOSTLY CHRISTIANS in this country who don't want the government coming into THEIR homes, but have no problem voting and supporting the government going into someone ELSE'S home and forcing THEM to live under Christian beliefs. This is evident in the gay marriage debate, blue laws, alcohol and drug use, etc.
---> Where do you come up with all this stuff? Sorry to tell you, but "Christians" aren't responsible for all the supposed 'woes' of the world.
1. Not everyone who opposes gay marriage is Christian, and not everyone who opposes gay marriage is from a religion.
2. Not all 'blue laws' are religious in nature...unless you are saying that only people who are religious can have morals.
3. The "temperance movement"...wasn't started by any church or religion, but it did EVENTUALLY gain the support of many religious organizations, as well as the women's movement. Speaking of which...will you be blaming Christians for women's movement too?
4. Drug laws...LOL. It was religion that was responsible for our various drug laws...unless you want to count that many people pointed to the Mormons smoking dope as a good reason. The [sad] truth is...racism was the number one reason and you don't have to look any further than Harry Anslinger...the man who made marijuana illegal:
“There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.”
“…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.”
“Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death.”
“Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”
“Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing”
“You smoke a joint and you’re likely to kill your brother.”
“Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind.”
If you air your dirty linen in public, expect people to comment on the skid marks!
