    I feel that it is my right as anyone to avoid a group of people. If I do not want to be around Christians, pedophiles then I should choose that. If you want more rights stop forcing people to accept you. Just create your own space. I think pedophiles should create their own jobs, neighborhoods, etc.

      Make Christians register so you can avoid them and take away their rights too.
