Religious Freedom Restoration Act Shows Hypocrisy & Contempt for Citizens Intelligence

Something just occurred to me about this Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which has gotten a lot of attention of late. One thing right off the bat is motive, and what some people try to say about these laws. The way the politicians try to convince people that these bills have nothing to do with discrimination (wedding cakes for gay couples) is insulting to the intelligence of the people of the United States. The Tea Party goons started this tactic for the express purpose of allowing people to discriminate against gays.

Another thing I find is a big dose of hypocrisy, or an ignoring of their own Christian teachings. Let this Atheist school you.

Mark 12:17 King James Version (KJV)
17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marveled at him.

When you do business, you not only serve yourself, your family and community, you serve the state. If you have a doubt, try to get out of paying taxes, or getting proper permits and licenses.

I hope people understand what I mean with this chain of thought. Here is another:

Matthew 9:10-13 King James Version (KJV)
10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.
11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?
12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

I am not advocating religion. I am pointing an accusing finger at all the hateful people who use religion as a tool for hate. Shame on you.
