Because you insist that everyone live by YOUR ideology. Why don't you keep your ideals out of MY government? I'll be glad to keep my religious beliefs out of it, as well. But as long as you insist you ideology is better than ours, we have a problem.<quoted text>
The question is WHY do you insist that EVERYONE live by your religious beliefs? I mean IF ya don't then kindly keep your religious beliefs OUTTA of my Government business....thanks!!!
Separation of ideology and state, the modern equivalent of a separation of church and state.
Otherwise, we'll just push our religion since you keep pushing yours. ;)
