Free Society

If you believe, for example, that fornication is a sin, that the human body is indecent, that boys should be boys and girls should be girls, that men should only mate with women and vice versa, that modern medicine interferes with God's plan - I salute you, because we live in a free society. But if you want the law to assist you in forcing other people to live by these beliefs, or to pay lip service to them so you don't have to be exposed to anything that might offend your sensibilities, or to reduce your child's options, and limit their ability to consider beliefs and lifestyles alternative to the ones you've raised them with - because your own aren't strong enough to withstand scrutiny - then you are a threat to the principles of liberty and equality that democracy is founded upon.
