No religious belief need be respected

Editor:

GOPer Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern's recent "morality proclamation" consists solely of religious divisiveness. The First Amendment requires our government--local, state and federal--to make no law respecting religion. ( http://tinyurl.com/lmhn5p )

No religious belief need be respected if it is advocating that certain citizens who have broken no law must be separated from their civil rights. Just because the religion has a dogmatic disagreement with other people who are NOT members of that religion is no reason gays/lesbians must be subjected to religious opprobrium and denial of the benefits and privileges that hetero people enjoy only because of the accident of their birth.
