It is unfortunate that such well intentioned yet muddled thinking now pervades so called conservatives today. Liberals use the argument that since I derive my beliefs and morals from a higher power they are therefore illegitimate or unconstitutional and are to be removed from the public square. Then they conjure up nice words like “gay” or “woman’s choice” for perverse lifestyles to soften up the public and attempt to make it acceptable. Sadly, it is working.
All immoral behavior affects all of us. Everything you do affects someone who affects someone who affects someone, etc… so called homosexual marriage is a contradiction of marriage itself and the ramifications are social, economical and spiritual. No society in the history of humankind has practiced it to this degree, making it far from simply a Judeo-Christian opposition as they would have you believe.
In regards to your notion that religious views are somehow to be removed from your political views, this would effectively remove any of your views, including murder, robbery, abortion, as well as child abuse, or anything else that violates your moral code. What if the majority made killing you legal.
Our country was built on the assumption that man is not to simply make up laws based upon the majority and their whims of morality. That is the worse kind of democracy which they avoided, which by the way, is another thing our current leaders would like you to believe they wanted. Our country is a republic. It was designed to stop the majority from oppressing the minority. That doesn’t mean you get to do whatever you want and falsely claim bigotry or prejudice. It means it is ruled by law, not masses or opinions.
A basic assumption of the founding fathers was the man is responsible to a higher power and subject to higher laws than what the debauchery of the human intellect could conjure up to justify its base desires.
