    For the Christian Right, recent conflicts around homosexuality, church-state separation, abortion, and other hot-button issues are viewed as threats, indicators that their values are no longer embraced or even tolerated, but under attack.

    When Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran was fired earlier this year over a self-published book that briefly critiqued homosexuality, conservative Christians saw the incident as further evidence that they are losing their religious freedom.

    Yes, christian intolerance is under attack by the secular government. Thank god!

    Someone needs to remind them that rights have limits. One recurring limitation is that you can't use your rights to step on other people's rights.

    Politically-minded US Christians latched on to the term "religious freedom" by trial-and-error: it began to bring them judicial victories in the types of cases they had been losing before they started using the term.

    But eventually the magic will wear off as more people realize what they're really doing.

    I predict, as with the abolition movement, and civil rights, they will eventually drop opposition and accept it under severe societal pressure. Most Americans now support gay marriage.

    The government can stay out of the church. Like you do.

    Which is an indication of the maturation of American
    values rather than the morality of gay marriage. Gay
    marriage has and always will be as morally "right" as
    heterosexual marriage.

    Homosexuality is an abomination of morality, and gay marriage is a clear sign of the demise of the American culture and of human values.

    Which is why California voters passed a law defining marriage as being between a man and a woman. It was a vote of the people in a liberal state. A politically appointed leftist court over rode the will of the people.

    As soon as anyone draws a line in the sand that can be called intolerance, if you say that
    everyone's views must be accepted, accept those that disagree with everyone's views
    must be accepted you have become intolerant, and a hypocrite. The separation of church
    state as good as that sounds has never been true, the state and church both lead people,
    the people will obey both as long as they agree with one another, but as soon as someone
    draws a line where they don't, they will clash.
