These seem to be the most important moral issues in America, particularly amongst conservatives. These things don't hurt anyone. They are only important to religious idealogists. 'Cause they live in a fantasy fairytale world. If you've read my previous posts you'd know that I oppose both. But now that I'm no longer a Christian, I don't have any reason to make these issues my priorities. As a humanist, my priorities are human (and animal) suffering, and poverty. I wanna relieve suffering. How can anyone be stuck on gay marriage. I am against LUST, and sexual immorality, as I said in my other posts. This is so confusing, I'm trying to look at this and other issues as openly as I can, and from all angles, and considering all kinds of philosophies, and it's just a conflict. Anyway I'll stop here. Are these issues keeping us behind? Can you be against them, and I am, without religious idealogy? Religious idealogy seems to make them bigger than they truly are. Without this delusion, would we be wasting so much energy on abortion and gay marriage?
