And Random Ntrygg’s Response to Skeptical Seeker
Freedom is the Distance between Church and State.
Religion in the hall of government tramples on the constitutional rights of everyone.
Because the US Constituation was for the individual to be the social unit of consequence with the freedom to take liberities with whatever makes you happy and to treat all citizens the same under the law.
That includes the right to form whatever family groups you want.
There were no footnotes in the foundational documents of America where there was a note that the social progress that the documents represented were full and final at the start.
In fact, the system was designed to increase the scope of the rights in step with social progress. But the problem is that the status quo resists change.
And religion resists change even more – because religion is the simplest answer to any question – and worse, religion doesn’t contemplate any answer other than the said religion.
So claiming to be an answer to every question, only means that you didn’t understand the question.
