Or frankly illegal in any other discrimantory way? This is becoming one of the big battlegrounds of our time. You have a book which you think gives you the right to practices that are now against the law. Am I infringing your rights in believing this book below the considered democratic opinion of my jurisdiction? Some of you won't like my answer to this question, but your religion is ephemeral. Religions come and go. Should I give respect to Mithras, to Zeus, Jupiter and the Egyptian one? Of course not, because they are wrong and you are right.
