Results from a recent Facebook post about government employees refusing service to citizens because their religious beliefs aren't aligned. It appears that 309 people are so fearful of losing their right to eat bacon that they hid the post to avoid thinking about it. A theocracy is a society run by religious leaders who give themselves the power to determine who lives and whose head will be cut off live on CNN. Or they throw gay people off of buildings or stone people to death for showing too much skin. Theocracies are bad ideas. Government clerks should do their civic duties and not inflict religious limitations on fellow citizens. Tell 'em, Sly. We've got to live together!
Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's best Christian, perfectly illustrates why religious people should not lose their minds over the Supreme Court decision to recognize gay marriages. Upshot: Americans enjoy democracy, not theocracy. More from Betty: Is America a Christian nation? Let's stop treating anyone as subhumans. Christian protesters in 1967 applied some of the same logic ("Race mixing is against God's natural order!") when the Supreme Court overturned Virginia law forbidding blacks to marry whites. Gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transsexuals are entitled to the same rights as everyone else. No person is a lesser cut of human being. It's all good. With equality, we are an improved America.
