Response to Ocelot II (Reply #2)

8. Yes. Some have, but too few, too timidly, and too late.

Did they file amicus briefs at the SCOTUS? Did they speak out against such restrictions from the pulpit on Sunday for their congregations to hear? Not so much.

As you know, I am an atheist, with no religious beliefs at all.

The spirit of ecumenism is strong among Christian denominations, particularly the more liberal ones. There has always been a hesitance to criticize other denominations when questions of personal freedoms and rights are concerned. It is one thing to support such things within your own denomination. It is quite another to criticize denominations which espouse racist, misogynistic and other bigoted views. It is the second thing that should be more evident, it seems to me.
