JUST TRY TO SILENCE US.
No one is trying to scilence you, so step off your little soapbox and quit acting like you are part of an oppressed minority.
We will have every right to violate the "separation of church and state" clause you bigots wield like a troll with a club.
How is not forcing people to worship or live according to a religion that is not their own an act of bigotry? The meaning of bigotry does not include preventing someone from walking all over the rights of others.
Because you clearly have no problem with the state interfering with the church on confirming the glories of homosex
No one is trying to force the church to chang it's stance of homosexuality, just that 501(c)3 tax-exempt charities run by the church cannot discriminate based on sexual orientation.
but heaven forbid the church stick to hear guns and beliefs.
The church can, no one has suggested that the catholic church changes it's stance or opinions on the matter. But rather that 501(c)3 charities cannot discriminate and retain tax exempt status.
And, you know, express them as guaranteed by the First Amendment.
The 1st Ammendment does not impart the freedom to discriminate.
In fact, if we pay taxes, I demand that the Bishops have a seat in every governing body in the United States.
By your reasoning the the Board of Directors of any company that pays taxes should also have a seat on the aforementioned governing bodies. In fact your reasoning would necessitate every single taxpayer having a seat on every relavent governing body.
After all, we contribute to society, so we should have a voice as big as our tax dollars can buy.
That isn't how a representative democracy works. Paying your taxes does not mean that you get to have your way or gurantee you any form of special treatment.
And don't get your undies in a twist: this is YOUR logic.
Logic has yet to enter into anything you have had to say.
If we don't pay taxes, we have to abide by the laws of the state. Fine. But when we start paying taxes, we don't have to do anything the state tells us.
No, that's not what anyone is saying. What you seem to be unable to grasp, or willingly ignore, is that the laws that apply to a tax exempt non-profit group are different than the laws that apply to a taxed for-profit group. You are essentially saying that a particular non-profit recieve special treatment because it is run by a religious organization that you personaly favor. I highly doubt that you would be as vociferous in your arguement if the charity in question were associated with a muslim mosque or hindu temple.
