If the government really supported tolerance and diversity

It seems to me that certain decisions should not be determined at the Federal level because they are too devisive. For example, Roe v. Wade or now the decision on gay marriage. These legal decisions are in conflict with some religious faiths.

It seems to me that the most equitable manner to handle such devisive issues is to put these decisions back to the state level. If the state passes a law I can't live with, I can choose to move to another state. Currently, religious faiths are forced to conform to one supreme, all knowing, infalliable Federal decision by 9 politically appointed judges. How can this be interpreted as religious freedom, separation of church and state or even just and democratic? Under these expansive Federal decisions, the Supreme Court forces everyone in the entire country to abide by their moral belief system rather than by an individuals choosen religious moral code. Doesn't this seem tyrannical?

If the government really supported tolerance and diversity, the Government would put these decisions back to the state level and let individuals live with liberty and choice.
