    I read this in Parade and wasn't sure how many others of you saw this. Sad to say it made me mad at how much money the church gets from the government. And the sadder fact is that most of the churches that are getting the aid are the very ones that are most likely opposing our equality in marriage. I sure hope that my parents church is not included in getting aid, as my parents are already confused how to react when things happen like in Hawaii with the HB-444. Its depressing when your mom writes she "doesn't know how to react because you (meaning me) are causing me to be biased on the subject."

    Without further tangents... here's the link:

    Maybe I don't get it. Religion is the major cause of wars for a long time. They preach peace but are the first to disrupt it. Who pays for these wars? Not the tax-exempt churches. We do and are subject to their homophobia.
