    Do tell us at what age you decided to choose heterosexuality.

    •  Precisely my point (0+ / 0-)

      We have heard here that religion is a choice so any vilification is ok.  That's the same reasoning we here from less savory quarters.  

      No comparison.  You need to study a little history about how religious minorities have been treated historically I think.  It is not a pretty one, but apparently one you would endorse.   So it's totally ok for the Chinese government to lok up Christians then?  It's a choice so no problems there.

        ..equating a critique of religious idealogy with throwing people in jail?  Do you not understand the difference between free speech by citizens and incarceration by the government?  

        Your comparisons are getting increasingly absurd.
