Extremes?

People like to frame a lot of our views as if they’re the exact opposite of their own views.

One Extreme: Endorse religion on money, in the pledge, etc. eg. One Nation Under God
The other extreme: Don’t use the government to promote any religious view

One Extreme: Only straight people can get married
The other extreme: Everyone can get married

This gives them a certain advantage. It lets them say things like:
. You’re just as fundamentalist as I am.
. You’re trying to force your views on everyone else, just like me.

However, our views aren’t the other extreme. They’re the neutral stance.
One Extreme: Endorse religion on money, in the pledge, etc. eg. One Nation Under God
Neutral: Don’t use the government to promote any religious view
The other extreme: Endorse atheism on the money and in the pledge, etc. EG: One Nation Without God/s

One Extreme: Only straight people can get married
Neutral: Everyone can get married
The other extreme:Only gay people can get married

“Only gay people can get married.”
But almost nobody is arguing for these, because we’re not bigots trying to force our views on other people. They are.

*There are spelling errors in this, like in your Bible/Qoran/Torah/Book of Morman… there are hundreds of holy books.
If you want a book relatively free of spelling errors read a dictionary (the zebra did it).
