    Too many people don't give a darn about anyone else's "civil rights," since they don't understand the term after the Reagan administration eliminated the federal requirement for civics education in schools (even though freedom of religion IS a civil right).

    But it seems most understand religious freedom for everyone.

    It is an angle that has worked for me in several arguments:

    "So-and-so's church allows same-gender marriage, so outlawing same gender marriage denies her the right to practice her religion, making it unconstitutional."

      You can't run a country by a book of religion

      "He made us all to be just like him" So, if we're dumb, then god is dumb and maybe even a little ugly on the side. Frank Zappa
