[I'm the King of Fence-Sitting, but this is an issue even I don't think can be sat on. Either homosexuality is a perversion against God and nature, and therefore cannot be tolerated, or it's simply another expression of perfectly natural human sexuality, and therefore MUST be. I don't see the compromise here - and I also don't see how accepting the rights of others to express their own sexual identity leads to a nightmarish dystopian future or communism.]
You don't see the long term result because you not looking far enough ahead with the patterns of history. The progressive/liberal is always finding something to progress with or make "equal." It seems culture means absolutely nothing to them and some utopia of equality, fairness, and rainbows is achievable. This is the domino patter that started a long time ago but seemed to speed up in the 60's. Once gay rights are in place, what's next? There will be temporary satisfaction for this then it's time to move on to the next. So what's really next gay polygamous marriage, straight polygamous marriage, married taxes rights to single parents, teenage marriage, marriage to animals for tax purposes, I don't know but it's always progressive. Heck wouldn't surprise me if marriage eventual meant nothing, that would solve the problem right..... Thus my very extreme example " Brave New World."
Destruction of culture breeds deterioration of society.
( please don't equate all I said to just gay marriage that is only a small part of it.)
[It is telling that the best argument you can use, is the logical fallacy of the slippery slope. Oh and throwing bestiality into the mix, always a classy move; because a legally binding contract between two consenting adults who love each other is exactly the same as a person marrying a rabbit.]
You've elaborated on my hypothetic extreme example, which by far is the easiest to refute and my weakest example. Why don't you refute why polygamy or a young teen marrying a older adult isn't okay, why not insest, they are just people who love each other.
It's not bigotry, its reality. I know prejudice I'm jewish, but because someone doesn't like me or approve of my lifestyle, I don't go into attack mode by demanding equality for me and make those against me seem like bad people. An example would be me demanding that all grocery stores have a kosher section and if they don't they are treating us unfairly and are "Jewaphobs." This is the tactic your side uses, it's almost like reverse psychology, your bad because you don't agree with my lifestyle.
[No, because there you are demanding a special privilege, not demanding to be equal with others. Let me put it this way. Imagine if there was a law to the effect that because kosher slaughter is "unhygenic", no kosher meats are allowed to be sold in the United States. In other words,not even Jewish grocers could stock kosher meat. You would be first trying to raise awareness that kosher slaughter is not unhygenic, and second you would demanding that kosher meat be allowed to be sold.
Do you understand that your demand that gay people be made inferior by law is the same?]
gays demanding special privileges to be married in church's and synagogues that don't or never have approved it isn't a special privilege? Now this isn't equality this is superiority to invade people's customs and try to shut them down.
Also the Jews revolution was different, people were blaming them for all sorts of problems. People aren't blaming gays in this matter at all, they are asking people to approve their life style.
I don't support it, thus it seems this brings passionate anger/hate out in the opposition, thus lets make all who don't agree wrong. I never said your wrong I just don't support it.
