Ok, if I believe marrage can only be between a man and a women and the state passes a law which allows same-sex marriage. I further believe that God will punish us for allowing same-sex marriage don’t you think it’s likely I’ll worry about it?
Then I can justify my belief that a woman can only be educated to the point of literacy, say 6th grade. And that they must be married before their first menses, and that the father has complete control over who his daughter marries to the point of making it legal for him to kill her for not obeying his wishes. Furthermore, she may not drive, nor can she leave the home unless accompanied by an adult (over the age of 13) related male. And she can be killed for talking to an unrelated male. Her testimony is no accepted in court against a male, unless she has 10 witnesses. My god insists on this and will punish the world if these laws are not followed.
And this is not even the worst of the religions out there. On cult leader made it mandatory that all girls sleep with him, including his own daughters. Another wouldn’t let the children eat. Another starved a toddler because he could not say ‘amen’.
Of course you can. That’s what they do. If they couldn’t justify it they wouldn’t do it.
What is the difference. Where do we stop.
I don’t know where you stop. Where I stop is when I recognize what they believe doesn’t affect me.
