    is not appropriate. Indeed, it is presumptuous to assume that embracing belief in a deity (or, if you prefer a Deity), gives anyone sufficient grounds to feel superior to some specific segment of humanity "just because."

    I'm not interested in bashing religion. I have a religion, though my practice of it is decidedly casual (for reasons which are entirely my own). It is not religion I'm objecting to. It is the abuse of religion that I find offensive. It is the assertion--whether implicit or explicit that because someone proclaims their beliefs loudly--they must be given a pass on bigotry that I find absolutely unacceptable.

    Everyone is entitled to his or her beliefs but they are not entitled to use those beliefs as a weapon to be launched against others who view things differently or who experience their lives differently.
