*amen* to Irving & VP's posts right above.....

Irvine, I think yolland is pointing out some of the possible trains of thought in some parents that lead to those types of anti-gay actions that can occur in certain areas of the USA public schools ....
y is not agreeing that is it right to do that [i don't think], but how these things have sometimes played out, and how it can be an uphill fight in some places- even IF it shouldn't be.
Of course it IS painful, interfering & sometimes deadly to the L/G/B/T community, or the particularly isolated in small town, and their supporters (family & friends etc) to continue the kind of the kind of bigotry & harassment that goes on.

as far as the Interfaith stuff goes..i guess it depends ...

I am a spiritual person, but i rejected alot of my Catholic upbringing in my teens, and eventually the central core of Christianity itself.

BUt I often find comfort going to a particular big church at certain times.
They are very ecumenical as in some of their special event services include not only the 3 monotheistic religions, but buddhists, Native Americans, African Indigenous religions too. ANd alters and religious symbols of all these faiths are represented around the church.

I'M sure that at least some of the officials in the church are comfortable with atheists as well.
I have a range of friends from fairly religious, to spiritual to atheists as well.
I thought I was an atheist at point in my life....but i really wasn't once i took in/ learned more about various spirituality from around the world.
