H.R. 5

There is a bill in the legislature that would expand equal rights protections for gays (source)(text of bill).

It is opposed by the Catholic, Baptist, and Mormon churches.  They argue that discrimination is such a fundamental part of their religion that they will be unable to practice their faith without it.

Most of us were taught as children to respect other people’s religions, but I reject wholeheartedly any belief system that marginalizes or hurts people.

What these people have done is build a false idol of their own prejudices and insecurities, and insist on worshiping it as if it came from God.  It’s a sad combination of ridiculous and pitiful, and it should not be honored, respected, or protected.
