What does religious freedom mean?

Aug 10, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

In the United States, Muslim women trying to maintain modesty should get female-only hours at the public pool , right? What about Wicca troops who want a chaplain of their own, even if there are only a few thousand of them in the military? And Catholic business owners who believe that contraception is killing - should they have to provide it to ... (more)

No, actually taking them in is simply Killing them and the only "unsavory character" around is YOU. There are no "dark pagans" no matter what bullsh!t you claim...

You really took that to heart didn't you.
I'm sorry little buddy.
You constantly insinuate things about "bad" pagans and such, that's one of the things that shows you're a bigoted troll.

You do realize that those were a device created by H. P. Lovecraft. As a backdrop to his gothic horror...

<quoted text>No matter how many times you repeat those LIES it doesn't make them any more true. TOPIX moderators take some time to make their decisions, they are not a large group and it can take a while for them to get to the complaints, especially during the holidays. Your whining about a "foul mouth" shows exactly what kind of an immature brat you are, more worried that "someone said a naughty word" than the actual point which shows your intellect is far below average. You haven't addressed anything other than your bigotry against pagans in general.
Pagan, this is not to you, but to some others. Topix moderators can ban people who are homophobes, even on a religion channel. I'm sure there are some gay moderators, and that's fine with me. Just posting this as a warning to certain others.

I have no problem with it if Pagan is gay.

The issues and the subject of topic are what matters.

And the Homophobe starts in, getting himself removed must be amusing to him, it happens so often, but it's not surprising bigots are bigots.

I have a serious question for you Pagan, and I seriously am not trying to troll you with this. If a person says they do not have a problem if another is gay or not, how are they homophobic? Can you explain this to me because it seems a bit bass ackwards to me. If the fact that someone is gay bothers them then I would agree that they are indeed homophobic.

What is said is just as important as what one claims. Referring to a male in emasculating terms shows homophobia whether one believes they are or not is of no consequence.

Your religious freedom ends where another's begins. You are free to follow your religions code as long as it does not infringe on anothers rights.

Example: Christian churches. You are free to turn away whomever you want for whatever reason you want; but as soon as you start to accept government tax dollars you, you now have to accept the strings attached to them. Those are that you can no discriminate against age, race, sex, color, religion, sexual preference.

If that is a problem then dont take governement tax dollars. Not like you dont get enough of those for free through tax exempt status.

So, just to be clear on your reasoning, if I refer to another male as a sissy or claim they have no "balls" I am being homophobic?

(Pardon me for cutting in.) No, you are being misogynistic. You are telling a male that he has female characteristics, in a pejorative way, thus you are demeaning women. I don't think anyone with a healthy sense of self would do that.

I agree, I am just trying to understand Pagans point of view here. BTW Having "No Balls" is not JUST a female trait. Eunuchs have either lost theirs or have lost fertility in them.

Deependson who you ask. Non-religous people KNOW it means they cant be forced into any religiona nd dont have to follow religous ruels or laws or bans. The christian right THINKS it means all people must be forced to be free to be christians.

I own your time Pagan and Proud. All the time you spend whinging to the Topix moderators is time you can't use doing something else. You are my puppet and you will be using the time I am depriving you of as you report this post.

You better get on with your complaining ritual my pathetic little plaything.
