There is freedom of religion in schools, albeit religious schools, and just so long as it does not offend anyone in public.

It seems as though if people read the Bible in public, they have to be wary of being called eccentric or worse.

As a Baptist, I find it sickening to see anti-homosexual activist Fred Phelps and his brood try to interrupt military burials with their homophobic ideals and followings.

I take a stand against gay marriage, however, much of that I do in silence (if anything), largely not to offend anyone. I endorsed it at one time, but having reviewed the true scriptures, I no longer can do that. I will be considered homophobic, sure, but it’s my view and reflects freedom of speech.

The widespread propaganda used by Michael Heath has put the Christian Civic League of Maine into the political action center.

Views can be stated peacefully and understood without causing a heated and hatred-filled debate session. Romans 2:1-2 states it perfectly: “Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.”

I don’t need to donate to a Christian league against same-sex marriage when it won’t donate resources to Darfur.
