    rights battle as well -- despite what the bishops proclaim, most in-the-pew Catholics support a woman's right to choose (whether it's abortion or birth control) because they understand that they can't force their religion on anyone else. (They also understand the separation of church and state, which is why most also support civil marriage equality.)

    I'm an Episcopalian -- not a Catholic, not an evangelical fundamentalist. My church has no problem with marriage equality (though it's pretty much left up to bishop's option whether their diocesan priests can conduct ceremonies in the states where it's civil law), nor does the Church take an official stand on either contraception or abortion (leaving it up to the individual conscience). Why should I be forced to live under Catholic or evangelical church rules? What about my religious freedom?
