Rev. Jim Nelson: It is okay for faith traditions to discriminate and believe what they want, but not to insist that their beliefs be public policy. The case against same sex marriage is prejudice pure and simple and that has no place in our civil and social society.
Victoria Defrancesco Soto: Latino views on abortion and religion will not translate into votes for the GOP. Social and moral issues may sway white voters but they do not have the same effect on Latinos.
Kathleen Peine: The barrage of late, regarding reproductive legislation shouldn’t be viewed as an assault only on women, but an attempt to curtail and contain the entire population, men included.
Carl Matthes: If Rick Santorum were Pope, nuns would would be given veils. If he was President, women would be brought into the bedroom only for procreation.
Tina Dupuy: Many studies have found Americans are not more religious in practice than people in other nations. We just lie to pollsters as to what we’re doing on Sundays.
