*sigh* This is the same baloney that keeps driving more people away from the GOP. Most people really don't care about how anyone else chooses to practice their religion. The problem comes in pushing those religion-based beliefs on others. Denying rights to some people because of your religious views is wrong. GOvernment simply has no business getting involved in people's personal relationships. Wanting the same treatment from government for everyone is not hindering your ability to practice your faith. If you want to hate or disciminate because of religious views, go ahead, but don't think it's right to impose that religion on everyone else.
