Since a fetus has no responsibility to its mother, society, or itself, it can't be convicted of a criminal offense, and consequently can't be defended. And though abortion opponents claim that by defending the rights of fetuses they are saving unborn lives, they are in fact attempting to disempower women by overriding their rights to control their bodies.
Since homosexuality has been present throughout human history, I can't imagine not calling it natural. We all possess male and female aspects, and being heterosexual or homosexual simply means developing one set of aspects over the other. The universe is predicated on opposites - that's what nature is about. For peaceful coexistence, we need to respect the masculine and feminine in ourselves and everyone else.
The American flag is a symbol our society has chosen to represent certain principles, and it's important to realize that symbols were created by humans, not given to us by God. I pledge myself to certain principles every day of my life, but I question the concept of pledging ourselves to a narrow national identity. So I'd edit the Pledge of Allegiance to read, "I pledge allegiance to humanity, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all, and to the flag of the United States of America, a temporal country in service to that timeless union."
I would not observe the Christians' exclusivist version of Jesus's birth, but I would embrace the birth of a mystic and spiritual master who exemplified a larger sense of self and identified with all of humanity. Likewise, I would celebrate the birth of other masters who epitomized the possibility for every human being to expand awareness. In their honor, I would donate food, clothing, shelter, health care, and education to those in need.
Putting Bibles on library steps symbolizes a willingness to demystify their meaning and leave divisive theologies in the past. Because they were written by men, not God, Bibles should be read with a critical eye - much as we read the words of philosophers. But people who are instead attached to their scriptural beliefs, including the myth of the Bible's divine authorship, would object to archiving a text that has for centuries ruled in temples, churches, or mosques. Objections in such instances would be against honesty itself.
