If your freedom involves compelling other people to tow your puritan line, then yes, I hate your freedom. Nobody chooses to eat an asbestos burger. People are unknowingly exposed to asbestos. They dont hapily order it. How about cars? Should we ban convertibles because they are not as safe and you dont enjoy driving them? Should we be forced by the health nazis to all become vegetarians or worse vegans just because some vegan, not content with his own choices, gets a chubby by making choices for other people? The list is pretty much endless. Religion is just another form of activity people think is ultimately good for them. You support passing laws just because someone somewhere might want to eke out a little pleasure from his meal that may increase his risk of heart disease or obesity? Sheesh. Some people think you are going to hell (worse than diabetes in the long run, so I am told) if you dont live life their way. As far as I am concerned they can go to hell along with all the other people demanding that total strangers live the way they say so. What about Homos? Their activities can get them AIDS. What would you rather have? A high cholesterol number or a low t cell count? People ought to stay the hell out of other peoples bedrooms and they ought to stay the hell out of their kitchens as well.
End of rant.
