Well done, Reverend Grisham.

The crux of the argument is the fact of our "pluralistic society," a society and form of government which allows and is based upon diversity.

Some people hate this, and we'll likely be hearing from some of them on this thread. They strive for a more theocratic society with a government based upon their particular interpretation of religion. Fortunately, their arguments have no standing in the law of the land.

Thanks, Reverend. It's essential that your voice be heard. A clerical collar can be unbuttoned and removed for the night. A theocratic collar is attached to a leash of totalitarian control.
