Not everyone in my home, city, state, country, and planet are religious; however, we are all human. With the Add the Words campaign, it would appear that many believe religious freedoms trump human rights.
Doug Sweaney does not believe homosexuality can be a condition from birth (March 16 letter). A question I asked my sister, and she believes she was born gay. I think that if you are not born that way, then you choose that way. I, however, cannot pinpoint the moment I chose to be heterosexual. It came "naturally."
Doug said if he owned a bakery and did not want to make a cake for a homosexual couple, that was his right. He would not be taking away the right for them to have a cake. True. So, can I refuse service to a person because they are black, a woman, even a Christian? No! They are protected under human rights laws. Then Doug quotes the Bible, Romans. Did he not read Romans 13:1? How about Deuteronomy 21:18? If you want to live by the Bible, live by all of the Bible.
Gays and lesbians are humans seeking human rights, not to rewrite the Bible.
