I don’t give no respect

…But you must respect the beliefs of others, even if you disagree with them.

A common  statement proffered by religionistas and their apologists, often after you have revealed to  them how utterly ridiculous their beliefs are, or in order to avoid having to contend with logic and reason. It’s hogwash of course.

I will acknowledge the existence of their beliefs but I need not respect them, or treat their ideas respectfully.  The fact is that many of them believe in imprisoning, torturing,  even murdering people who have beliefs contrary to their own. Many of them believe that women have lesser rights and  can and should  be enslaved, raped,  and even killed at the whims of their male masters. Many of them believe them many of my friends  should lose their rights because of their race or their sexual orientation.  They want me to respect those beliefs. They want me to respect them,  supposedly adult humans who  still talk to their imaginary friends in the sky and believe in magic clothing.  They want me to respect their “faith”. Fuck that. I’ll acknowledge those beliefs, I may ignore those beliefs, but I’ll never “respect” their. That doesn’t mean that I won’t love  some of them or enjoy their company, but don’t tell me I have to be respectful when it comes to these beliefs.

A leap forward but

Supreme Court

Supreme Court (Photo credit: pepsobert)

The Supreme court has ruled both DOMA and  California’s Proposition 8 unconstitutional, a big, big step for human rights in this country. Stuff it Mormons.  Now, go ahead and celebrate, but….

Don’t let your joy over this victory  cloud your mind and eyes to the fact that this same SCOTUS   just took away  voting rights and that as long as the court is made up of douchebags like Thomas and Scalia, all of your civil rights are in danger. The takeover of the country by the Reich wing of the religious party remains largely unchecked.
