This is a s/o of one of the gay marriage questions, but it's a bigger issue than just that. If you personally feel something is against your religion, but your entire religion does not agree, can you really say it's against your religion? When it's a rule like no gay marriage, no birth control, no pants, or no being "unequally yoked", you cannot find a single denomination of the religion with that rule that follows it across the board. There are priests who recommend bc, Baptists who wear pants, churches of every denom who marry interfaith couples, and even denoms that have followers in one congregation who adamantly refuse gay marriage have congregations that perform them in another town.
So when your religion does not agree that something is or isn't against your religion, is it really against your religion, or is it against your personal beliefs and religion is the excuse?
