of course, people have freedom to believe but they go over the line when they disrespect separation of religion and govt
First of all, In more recent times we've gotten it backward from the perspective of the founding fathers.
The founding fathers meant to keep government out of the church, but NEVER intended to keep the church out of the government. In fact, the founding fathers and many high ranking government officials, including several Presidents, even attended church in the U.S. Capitol Building.
The only reason they wanted the government and church to be separate is so the government wouldn't interfere in people's religious lives and beliefs.
However, they fully intended religion to have its place in government. You can find evidence of this in MANY places, including right on the money you spend, which is emblazoned to this day with "In God We Trust". Religion was supposed to be in government while government stayed out of religion, but now we have it backward.
Second, and MORE IMPORTANTLY, no one is asking the government to endorse a religious viewpoint, but rather to respect and honor the traditional and well-established method of marriage.
try to hide this by using terms like values when it is really religion.
Values are different than religion. They can be based on religion if one so chooses (and they have every right to base their values on whatever they want).
this is what fundamentalists do here..elsewhere they use violence.
So fundamentalists here have values? Great for them. I don't see why you should find this to be any sort of problem. At least they HAVE values - there are many people who apparently don't and they cause far more problems. Maybe you should preach out against those people instead.
