Enough of the: "It's ok as long as they don't impose it on others" or "Religious beliefs are a personnal choice, whatever anyone practice at home is none of our business". Religion has social and societal ramifications, that's its nature. Could someone say: "Slavery is ok as long as it stays in Africa?" or "Paedophilia is a personal choice, whatever anyone practices at home is none of our business?" Religion is politics in its ugliest, most evil form and has to be fought and denouced with vigor. A famous poet once said that: "If you don't take care of politics, politics will take care of you"...The same can be said of religions.
