It's not only in christian countries gays are mistreated, it's the same in muslim countries. A certain percentage of people in the entire human race are going to be gay in any given generation so christians and muslims have to get over the idea that a gay can be 'converted' by just following the precepts of whatever religion is involved. It's MUCH deeper than that, on a physiological level and as such will not be 'converted' by religion in the same way as a straight will not be 'converted' by studying witchcraft. Christians and muslim's have to grow up and live with it.
Of course christians have an anti-science stance, but specific in respect to evolution. I don't think anti-science goes a lot further than that except for certain sects like the Amish and Mennenites. Christians have learned to rationalize all the insults of the past scientifically speaking like science proving the earth is not the center of the universe nor the sun the center, thus showing earth has no special place in the universe so humans have no special place in the universe with the exception we evolved on a planet that allows such, so this astronomy lesson was rationalized out and christianity, unfortunutely in my opinion, survived that onslaught. So grow up and accept 100 years of solid evidence for the existance of evolution and stop grousing about it. Live with it.
I can reject whomever I please, so what.
I don't see you listing the subjugation of women in christianity. Although it can be argued women are somewhat better off now than 100 years ago, it hasn't been that long since women have even been allowed to VOTE. So why are they still considered pariah's in science?
Why has there never been and not likely now, Hillary included, ever to be a woman as US president? Maybe you should look at the recent court case where women are derided at Wal-mart, that is here and now. So why aren't you crying about that?
