Re: Why Not A Starfleet Ships Chaplain As A Main Character?
How is depriving people of their right to spiritual beliefs any different than depriving someone of their right to marry interracially?
Most religious people I know actually don't try to force people to conform to their morals and I've met just as many, if not more atheists who are even MORE obnoxious than religious folk in trying to force people to conform to their (lack of) a belief system.
Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or fucking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.
