One cannot change the beliefs of others, so the point is what changes we need to impliment in the law. there are still those who view other races as less than human and those who view homosexuals in a similar light.
As there will be until the end of time with regard to any particular race, creed, religion, etc. I agree the point is changes in the law, if any at all.
Other than being abused, beaten, killed, and it being suggested there need to be large concentration camps to allow the homosexuals to die off?
So what? Homosexuals hardly have a monopoly on poor treatment.
Marriage is where the rights are being clearly abused by the government, yes.
Homosexuals DO have the right to marry. Understanding what that means apparently escapes a number of people. This isn’t abuse or discrimination. The rights are simply not applicable.
Only for those ignorant in the rights granted under the Constitution.
As opposed to those ignorant over what things are and are not? Get enough folks on the same page and you can legally define that a tricycle is a motor vehicle.
In the case of the broomstick, only the rights of a single person could possibly be impacted and in a limited way. In the case of two people the rights of both are being limited and in some significant ways.
No they’re not. Again, the two people’s circumstances are such that the rights do not apply.
You forgot to include women since they were and still are discriminated against as well. That make the case for there being no real logic to this position.
Point being, there are bigger fish to fry. We were then and are moreso now the most liberal country in the world with regard to human rights. We’re not only at the point where folks are starting to want preferential treatment, but there are also a sufficient number of folks ignorant enough to buy into it.
That explains the ads by the churches and religious leaders to uphold the "Christian definition" of marriage and to do away with the abomination that is homosexuality. Not to mention the "Christian values" the US government is supposed to uphold according to their position.
Well, I’m not a holy roly, it doesn’t scare me, and I don’t think homosexuality is an abomination. I don’t agree with all Christian values but I do with the bulk of them. I don’t have a problem with extra-marital sex or prostitution. Marriage just happens to be one with which I do agree. Call me a bigot if you want. I simply say the right applies given the correct set of circumstances.
