  • that was based on the rights of religious freedom etc.
    we vote because the majority typically rules. If there are more people for one way of life, then thats really what determines laws etc.
    not to say our country is perfect, but you could live elsewhere where gays are stoned to death and genitals cut off/out? would that be better?
    so although we are not perfect, be grateful for what we do have.
    progress takes time.

  • I would love to live in Ireland but I can't afford the move...it's not as simple as "if you don't like it, leave..".

  • wait, if YOU don't like it leave, don't corrupt our country with this crap. If it's the land of the free, make sure it remains that way.
