Fellow Americans, particularly people of faith, I am curious. What are your values?

A recently prominent U.S. politician views this as this is just the most recent example of an administration at war with people of faith in this country:
My view is, bigoted repression and persecution is bigoted repression and persecution. I see no significant distinction between repression and persecution based on sexual orientation and repression and persecution based on race, gender, or religion. I like to think that the defining American values is that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. So I vehemently disagree with anyone that suggests that what consenting adults to with themselves behind closed doors somehow makes them ineligible for all the rights and privileges that I enjoy.
