I pointed to Islam in this debate on women's rights. Guess you missed it. I am sure if there were any Muslims or Hindu's here, I would be talking about them more, but we only have Christians here, so I speak of your religion.<quoted text>As human culture progressed, most RELIGIONS progressed. As with life in general, humans advance in some way, shape, fashion or form. PROGRESSION is a subject you never address on here. Freedom to worship is a double edge sword. You can worship whom you please, just as a religion can make it own rules. BTW why do you seem to always target Christianity? Ever seen a female "Dalai Lama"? Equal to me means I can choose any religion I want, therefore I will accept the perspective of the religion.
Yes, humans progress, but this is not due to religion, it is due to mans learning. Religion often lags behind the learning curve and clearly so on equal rights, as I gave evidence to. It is my claim that religion is holding us back from progress. When the secular society screams loud enough, religion eventually caves in to the progress. Even some Muslim societies are now showing some more rights for women. Not due to any events of god or religion, it is due to secularism.
The equality of being religious or not is the secular freedoms America is giving. Most all religious scripture 'demand' the people join their team. Many have enforced this by death and torture. See the inquisitions and crusades for evidence.
People came to the Americas for religious freedom that Europe was not giving. They were demanding certain forms of Christianity.
You will not see me 'demanding' anyone leave religion. You will not see me asking them to get their own island. To do so would be anti American. Anyone who says anything like this should be condemned. I see none of you condemned Waco when he did so. In fact, he got multiple 'agreement' icons.
So who is for freedom and equality here? It sure does not look like your team.
Maybe you should police your own team for a start in the battle of equality. Kind of like the Muslims who refused to condemn the attack of 9/11. It only makes your team look culpable.
