This honestly drives me nuts. It is not being intolerant of your faith to give gays the right to marry. It is saying you have your faith, GREAT! But you dont get to determine others faiths, others love, others rights based on your faith.

In regards to a previous post;

I've spent quite a bit of time in the US on holidays, etc. The few bucks saves on a case of beer does not compare to the knowledge that should I ever need an MRI, a life-altering surgery or extensive treatments, it will all be covered.

I really just can't imagine having to put off medical care at the prevention level to save a few bucks until it requires treatment, and then not being able to afford that treatment. My health, and the health of my loved ones, just doesn't have a dollar sign.

All nice and good if your state lets you vote for a third party. Not all of us can.

This country is free from religious prosecution. It should stay that way. This is a discussion about politics and government, something religion should have no part of.

And as for Romney "creating wealth". Sure. He buys companies and shuts them down. Creates wealth.

Our unemployment rate will go through the roof, though.

Wow well at least it is clear there is no chance of a discussion here. I will not apologize for being a Christian and I don't believe everything I say is GODGODOMGGOD or whateer nonsense it is that you are so offended by. I will not apologize that my moral compass stems from God. Again though this comes back to you have tolerance except when it comes to God. I get it, i wasn't always a Christian. I was certainly not raised with it. Religious Persecution doesn't just extend to "I don't want to believe in any God and I hate when anyone talks about God".

Really though... Where does everyone Believe rights come from.

I am aware you don't like my husband or me because of our beliefs but I feel this is a legimiate question. Sorry that it has put you on the defensive but I won't apologize for my faith even if you see it as a weakness or something to hate
