	It isn't "liberals" who have told me I was a tool of satan for
studying HPB, cursed me as a killer for believing in a woman's right to
choose, fired a good friend of mine because she was gay, bombed 2 clinics
in Montana, and want prayers to the Christian god recited at school
functions. It was self-righteous conservatives. And they aren't interested
in making themsel;ves feel good - more like making sure anyone who
doesn't believe as they do feels bad ... Seems like whenever
conservatives talk about "basic human rights" it means the ones *they*
define ... on one else's definition is acknolwedged - and if some of them
had their way, other's definitions would land them in prison.
	A gay couple making love in Montana is committing a felony.
This, I suppose, is the conservative notion of "rights" - "You have the
basic human right to do anything our reading of the Bible tells you you
can ... anything else may get you imprisioned".
