2273Re: [gaykingdom] Please check your religion at the door
- Oct 17, 2005Gart,For one, I appreciate the fact that you have been keeping up with the debates. However, I have to compare the "checking of your religion at the door" with the idea of "checking your sexuality at the door".With all this in mind I have but one question to ask you Gart, just for you (and anyone else in this thought pattern) to ponder on. At what point do we stop?Stop telling people what or how to believe, think, live? Oh, and who may I ask is to make this decision?Can someone tell me when do we stop limiting others rights as we are already limited in our current societies.Louis TrustyFrom: GartSent: Saturday, October 15, 2005 11:32 AMSubject: [gaykingdom] Please check your religion at the door
I have been following the debates here for a while now, and I would like to make a suggestion: Please check your religion at the door, or for future immigrants into the gay kingdom; at customs upon entry.
Religion has brought us nothing but pain and suffering and is the direct cause of all anti-gay discrimination worldwide. Therefore it is one of the main reasons why we want a sovereign state to begin with.
In my humble opinion, there is no god. I don't even believe in Santa Claus, and I can see him!
Everyone is free to believe whatever they want, of course, but faith is a private matter and it should remain that way. It is irritating to me that god gets dragged into these debates all the time. I think we should establish that the foundation of the gay kingdom is strictly a legal and political matter, and specifically a non-religious one.
Even in a gay state, religion can become a source of division and conflict. I say; outlaw and abolish all organized religion from the gay state and make it a constitutional amendment that organized religion has no place there.
