Christians & DOMA

I never understand how the Religious Right feels they can just legislate what comes down to FREE WILL. Christians like to overlook the free will aspect of things, and just restrict, restrict, restrict.

But if they’re gonna legislate personal behaviors, may as well start advocating for Constitutional amendments banning fast food and the like, to restrict gluttony. And premarital sex too.

… Oh wait, they won’t… because they’ve all done it!!

For the sake of argument, let’s just say it’s true that homosexuality is an abomination. I am a Christian, but I’m also an American. There is some overlap, sure… but their mission statements, in some ways, are completely opposite and they are different roles. My religion is personal. I’m accountable for myself. My role as a patriot and a citizen is a responsibility. A responsibility to protect those not within my own umbrella of beliefs.

We are not a theocracy!
