  •  I think my point was you can have your faith (0+ / 0-)

    but if something I do violates or challenges your faith, that's your problem.

    You have no right to eliminate things that challenge your faith.

    These people today think that they have the right to have their faith remain unchallenged - "Gay marriage threatens my faith, therefore it should be illegal, because to see it is an affront to me and My God."

    You have a right to your faith, but you have no right to have your faith unchallenged.

      I was using Carrie Nation as an example of "being on a mission from God" that trampled on the rights of others, differentiating between faith and practice.

      "A famous person once said, 'You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.' But as I once said, "If you don't teach them to read, you can fool them whenever you like." – Max Headroom
