NeoNote – “What I do is not up to you.”

The best 2017 movie quote came from Wonder Woman.

“What I do is not up to you.”

One reason that some pagans tolerate me at all is because my biggest ongoing argument with conservative Christians is some version of "Your religion doesn't control what other people do." Not what they wear, not who they live with, not what they eat, not what happens in the bedroom, not what they read, not how they do it, and not who they do it with.

Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do by Peter McWilliams points out that vice laws are all based in religion.

Personally I'd be willing to live and let live with Christians. But that works two ways. If my beliefs don't control the actions and beliefs of monotheists, then theirs don't control mine. That means that the law must treat every faith (and even no faith) equally. Neither help nor hinder. No special consideration or privilege. But at the same time, some Christians act as if their religion must be raised above all others, even by those who do not practice it. Freedom of religion does not mean putting Christianity first. It means choice, even if that choice is one you do not agree with.

I love throwing that quote of mine at them, it frustrates them to no end. It's even more fun watching them try to justify why Christianity must be above all others.
