>> I barely have the first coffee down and looking at this thread though I had stumbled upon www.witchesvoice.org
Ha, ha, ha. You crack me up GnomeDome. In America, we all have a voice – even witches.
>> And whatever gave you the idea this was a country founded on religious freedom?
What sort of hallucinogen was in your morning cup of coffee? Eye of newt? Bat wings? Non-dairy creamer? Neither one of us said that this country was founded on religious freedom. Our point was that it’s one of the freedoms that we as Americans hold near and dear to our hearts. Unfortunately, there are people who think that exercising this freedom is limited only to those who follow a “mainstream” religion, and there are still people being persecuted for their beliefs.
>> The American people, as a whole, are fair minded and tolerant. I dare say this country has a wider acceptance of religious difference than any other.
I totally agree with you. Again, we weren’t referring to the fair-minded and tolerant majority but to the closed-minded and intolerant minority who tend to be very vocal and seem to be on a religious crusade to convert the “non-mainstreamers.”
