  1. Religion adopting a policy of ignoring other people’s business? I have lived to see the day!

  2. They were urged to ignore the Pride but are they ignoring it? No, on the contrary! They have now sent a joint letter to the Riga City Council demanding that the Pride march be banned. So, I’m afraid you haven’t yet lived to see the day when a single church isn’t trying to stop progress and human rights!

    Christianity truly is a vile, bigotted belief system. Why anyone would choose to live their lives motivated by hatred is beyond me.

  5. Christianity isn’t a vile, bigotted belief system – unfortunately, a lot of its adherents are vile bigots, and want to make it one. It wouldn’t be acceptable to most people on this site for someone to make a negative blanket comment on the LGBT lifestyle, so why do we feel we can do it to other groups? For the record, I’m a Christian transsexual, and have encountered a lot of decent, accepting, understanding Christians – they don’t hate me because of what I am, and I don’t turn on them if they simply say they don’t agree with it – to not agree with or approve of something is a universal human right. It doesn’t make someone vile, bigotted or motivated by hate. It takes more than that.
