I don't want a theocracy.

Dang, but the ultra religious right want to create one. They don't like alcohol drinking -- let's pass laws and keep our hometown dry. But if THEY want to drink, that's OK, but nobody else should do it. They claim that they believe in the Right to Life, but they so inflame their followers that some poor idiot goes out and kills a doctor that performs abortions. It goes on and on. I surprised they don't try to pass a law that only members of their church can be voting citizens. I think these people are just as dangerous as any terrorists anywhere. JMO, of course.

            ...when it comes to religion, it becomes very obvious. Of course, I am west of GR, and it just gets more conservative/Christian the farther you go. Uru
        • But as has been said, "the only constant is change." They're just not thinking it through. Well, that, or they simply presume that (their version of) God will see to it that they don't get oppressed. ... more
          • Uh, whatever. Smartin, Thu Dec 30 21:17
            Honestly, I can't even believe this because I have no exposure, whatsoever, to the people in MY community, of whom you're speaking?
