Ross Douthat has questions; Outside Counsel has answers:
  1. Yes
  2. Yes
  3. Yes
  4. (a) Sure; (b)Yes; (c) Yes; (d) join the 21st Century; (e) no; (f) no
  5. (a) Yes; (b) no
  6. No
  7.  (a) No; (b) No *
* Subject, of course, to exceptions relating to the health and safety of the child, as embodied in current American jurisprudence.

These are not particularly difficult questions. If you want to be a bigot in your house, or in your church there isn't much anyone can do to stop you. Sooner or later society will change around you, or you will die, and then the arc of history will continue its curve. In the meanwhile, your "sincerely held religious beliefs" , founded as they are in interpretations of stuff that's been translated to suit cultural norms centuries old, and based on social norms prevalent in a culture that was largely agrarian, polygamous, and theocratic thousands of years ago have no place in our culture today except to the extent that those beliefs encourage you to be a decent person. Seriously, what part of 'render unto Caesar" is so hard to understand? It is embarrassing that the Christian religions are leading the pack on this issue.
