No argument from me here. I've borne the brunt of the "God/religion told me so, so it must be true" attitude before (I'm gay), and there's no arguing them. My hope that eventually all of society will look at homosexuals with no more interest than we look at heterosexuals has tempered by opinion about religion, as I recognize that there are still plenty of people who hold religious beliefs but don't let them interfere with the lives of others.
