    All the equality legislation that can be thought of will never give them what they really want, which is not equality – but complete acceptance. The true believers can never give this – they are hostage to the “good book” – and unless that thing gets a miraculous overhaul which has god taking responsibility for “making” people that way – then there will just be new demands to rectify new situations brought about because of the new laws created. I see this situation as a comparison of apples to oranges – and apples to apples or bananas to bananas.. if you like. It seems that the laws were written for the apples to oranges – and applied evenly that way. We have a new situation of apples to apples and bananas to bananas – that we need to create laws and make room for – separate from what governs the apples and oranges – this may remove the perceived threat to the apples and oranges.

    Yes electra, avoidance of anything that threatens the church: Like the whole pedophilia thing where hushing things up and relocating priests is top priority instead of protecting children.

    Kittie I can’t help but to think of the lyric:

    “For they passed a noble law,
    And the trees are all kept equal
    By hatchet, axe, and saw.”

    Sinjun, although your article is interesting, it did not include 4/5 of the world which would include India, China, and the all of the Muslim countries. I am not entirely certain how India and China would shake out percentage-wise, but the Muslim countries are probably around 95% theist.
