  •  You keep using "faith" and "religion" (4+ / 0-)

    interchangeably. This is an error of logic and fact. As is your continuing assertions that the larger group to which you belong must all share your own bigotry.

    Not all people of faith follow a particular church or religion.

    There are many who do belong to a particular church or religion, but do not personally agree with 100% of the teachings of these institutions... and have spoken up and said as much, especially on the subject of equal rights and marriage.

    There are many millions of people who choose not to belong to an specific church or religious sect, but who both have faith in God, and chose to follow the teachings of Jesus as the Christ.

    There are also many, many millions of people who believe in God, and do not chose to follow the teachings of Jesus as the Christ, but do follow his teachings as a wise, respected, fully human teacher.

    And there are many more millions of people who comport themselves in a way that adheres to the teachings of the Law of Reciprocity, "Do unto others..."

    You then assume that anyone with faith -that God exists - also shares your bigotry, simply because you have a commonality of monotheism with them. And several here have pointed out that your logic and reasoning is flawed. We may be Christians or not, that doens't matter. What matters is that YOU tied your personal bigotry into your particular brand of "Christianity" - we didn't. And if your church is filled with like-minded bigots who all back you up, great... but there are plenty of Christians out here who do NOT share your bigotry.
