America is a place where, supposedly, everyone is considered equal. We talk and talk about how we respect the right to free speech, we respect the right to bear arms, and we respect freedom of religion.

…it is absolutely none of my business what you and your partner do before the higher power you yearn to provoke.

While my partner and I may act one way in our bedroom, two other people might instead spend their time salivating at the chance to scorn the all-powerful being who determines their fate. And so what?

It’s 2015. How are we seriously still having this discussion?
