    I do have a problem with the widespread article of faith that gays and transgender people have been losing the culture war at the hands of barbaric “Christianists.” Sexual minorities have been on a winning streak that any serious-minded person must concede is remarkable. But denying this is the central tactic and mindset of the Left. They are the aggressors in the culture war and have been for 40 years. Yet whenever they encounter the slightest resistance they don the mantle of victimhood.) Christianity Is Always to Blame...

    While Christianity is a horrible blight on society, especially in this instance, clearly Islam is much much worse at the moment.

    I think all superstition helps feed all other superstition though. Just as no one anywhere believes in Zeus or Apollo or El Gabbal or Ahura Mazda anymore, it's no coincidence that polytheism started dying out when people, among other things, started believing in the idea of many gods as not making much sense. When everyone around you believes there can only be on true god, cause that just makes sense, then it's harder for your little cult praying to the storm gods to attract adherents. The same is true for Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hindusim, the idea of any religion helps support every other religion as just being normative, rational enough to have hundreds of millions of followers.

    It's 2016. It's time to stop worshipping magical explanations from 1000s of years ago. And it is certainly time to stop killing/passing laws grounded in those explanations.
