There are plenty of instances of "god-ordained" bigotry, if you believe in that sort of thing. Sometimes religions aren't very "moral" in contemporaneous or future contexts.

Why should they feel like idiots? Because they voted their consciences? Yeah, that's a really dumb thing to do.

You should feel like an idiot for starting such a stupid-ass thread.
