Republican Horrified to Discover that Christianity is Not the Only Religion

Republican Horrified to Discover that Christianity is Not the Only Religion | Christianity | Scoop.it
It's an honest mistake, assuming that the Constitution only protects your own personal megachurch faith.

It's an honest mistake, assuming that the Constitution only protects your own personal megachurch faith. But one Louisiana Republican is learning the hard way that religious school vouchers can be used to fund education at all sorts of religious schools, even Muslim ones. And while she's totally in favor of taxpayer money being used to pay for kids to go to Christian schools, she's willing to put a stop to the entire program if Muslim schools are going to be involved.

 

Valarie Hodges admitted that when she supported Governor Bobby Jindal's school voucher program, she only did so because she assumed the religious school vouchers could only be used for Christian schools. Religious freedom means that everyone's free to follow Valarie Hodges' religion! She explains,

"I actually support funding for teaching the fundamentals of America's Founding Fathers' religion, which is Christianity, in public schools or private schools. I liked the idea of giving parents the option of sending their children to a public school or a Christian school."

 

As The Friendly Atheist points out, the brand of Christianity currently espoused by many in the religious right wing would be pretty unrecognizable to the Founding Fathers, who were pretty high on Deism and pretty low on Christian rock concerts/ talking about The Children's collective virginity/ having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. But whatever. Facts are immaterial at this point.

The case for gay marriage is made in the freedom of religion

The case for gay marriage is made in the freedom of religion | Christianity | Scoop.it
Freedom of religion is a hard-won principle. In Europe, the wars of religion raged for over a century before the Peace of  Westphalia solidified freedom of religion for rulers in 1648.

Christopher Pearsall's curator insight, January 12, 2014 4:16 PM

A valuable insight from the article itself:


Gay marriage is a matter of religious freedom for two reasons: First, a substantial component of the opposition to legalizing gay marriage is religious in origin. This is particularly true in Utah, where the Mormon Church has taken a lead role in opposing gay marriage. Leave aside religious objections to gay marriage and what remains would be unlikely to garner much respect

Interesting article of freedom of religion for Religion . in this article we see how over many century's Europes has had troubles with the right for freedom of religion . Finally the fighting has slowed down and freedom of religion is more accepted but now there is another problem, many people believe freedom of religion is freedom to marry whoever you want. I chose this article for religion because it pertains to Europes religious background and how it's religion may be apart of the choices it makes
