Regarding the marriage thing...I personally don't care. I'm legally married to my wife and have no interest in making religion a part of that, nor do I have interest in controlling who else gets married or why. I don't care if gays can or can't, I don't care if born-agains can or can not, I don't care if religion is part of someone else's marriage or not. I don't like the idea of the government getting involved in ANY of those questions, but I don't really care that much...I've got much bigger fish to fry. There's far more consequential things that the government needs to get out of.
What does offend me is a user who is on a fuel economy forum solely for political discussion. Perhaps BEEF agrees. You know that there are forums entirely about politcs, where you could post your occasional FE-related thought along with your constant poltical stuff, right? In such a place, you could bicker about politics with others who also want to bicker about politics.
BTW, your heavy concentration on politics is a religion. According to Random House dictionary, here's a couple definitions of religion:
- a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects
- something one believes in and follows devotedly; a point or matter of ethics or conscience
You should keep that out of government and marriage.
