I suppose because it's a symbol for all people living together equally, and in harmony.

Some people feel that they themselves are less "special", if other folks are treated the same way that they are.

It's ironic, the people who whine about entitlements that don't really exist are often ones who think they're entitled to superiority simply for being the majority.

Wow, I'm having another moment of poetry here I think.

Frankly, when you step back and look at christianity as a "moral system," it leaves something to be desired. So these bishops can spew and spout all the nonsense they want, but they do not own the moral high ground on this, or any other, issue.

Theirs is a religion that requires blood sacrifice. How is this different than, for instance, the Aztecs, or any other ancient religion that sacrifices animals (or worse, people)? We scorn these ancient religions, but don't stop to realize that christianity is based on the same principles - a deity that requires blood.

Those bishops should suffer the same fate Robespierre delivered to the clergy.
