Again, well put.
Being a non-religious person, I'm reassured and glad to see the results of this poll.
If I may for a second.... It might be a tad off the subject, but I feel the need to vent a bit atop my soapbox.
Why is it that because I don't allign myself with the American so-called "religious right" and "values voters", I am made to feel that I have no morals? Just because I don't have the same belief system doesn't mean that I don't have values and morals. That movement really makes my blood boil.
It's like they're implying that they have a monopoly on good, and everyone who disagrees with them is amoral and bad, destined for their hell. They have such
political power right now, and want to legislate their belief system to everyone in the nation, whether everyone follows their system or not. How is that right? How is that upholding the Constitution of the United States, which contains a clause for the speration of church and state? How does that allow for majority rule while protecting the rights and voice of the minority?
Please understand that I am not talking about all
religious people...just the "religious right/values voter" movement and the politicians associated therewith.
Okay...I'm done for now. I will step off the soapbox.
Sorry...that was really bugging me and I had to vent.
