Briefing Book! Group Warns of Looming Gay Marriage Storm

also in response to the commercial saying a school is teaching about gay marriage. GOOD that should be happening. let children know that if they ARE gay then thats ok too, theyre still equal people. if things like that arent taught to children we'll end up with another generation of hateful discriminating people like there is today.

people in this country need to stop worrying about other people. gay people being able to get married does not affect anyone but themselves and anyone who feels that it would be impacting their life needs to move on and realize that there are far more important things to worry about than two people who are in love being able to be married.

I was thinking: rewind a few decades, and let's replace "same-sex marriage" with "interracial marriage." The rhetoric then was pretty much the same. Anti-integrationists established private schools to keep their kids away from public schools that taught "immoral" doctrine of co-mingling races. Now back to the first decade of the 21st century: we laugh at those who still support racial segregation as fossils, while our civilization had not yet collapsed into stone age. What really bothers me about this commercial though is their use of "rainbow coalition" -- I think Jesse Jackson is angry.

One of us is either clueless or possibly even delusional. I will leave that up to those that read the entire blog to make that judgement.

Sorry G'pa, but you're clearly not stupid and you pretty clearly know what you're saying at all times. If you honestly don't see an insult, it must be second nature to you.

Nope. You can read.

Steph, let me repeat " I am completely flummoxed, how exactly were you insulted?" Just copy and paste the exact insult.
stephley stephley 8 years
Yeah he did and he's well aware of what he said.

She wasn't insulted Grandpa, she just doesn't have the right words to respond to your intelligent comment. You obviously said nothing that could be misconstrued.

"Steph, I do not have Jewish or Muslim family members, not yet anyway. My family have Jewish and Muslim friends. I would suggest that every act, look, or word thrown your way is an act of discrimination. There are folks who are anti social, having a bad day, or just don't like you. Itis all part of life." I love the way you regularly admonish other people here to be civil, but when you have no valid response, you turn to insults.

No, I was referring to YOU standing on YOUR own two feet. Your female, black, Asian, Latino, gay, Jewish or Muslim family members don't come into it - except as examples of people who will likely experience far more discrimination than you. Without legal actions to enforce the laws of this nation, they would very likely spend more time than you saying FU to businesses, schools, doctors, photographers etc. that don't want their business and looking from place to place from people who deem them worthy of acceptance.

Steph what are you implying with "oh wait, you're a hetrosexual, white male in the United States." I guess that precludes me from having women, blacks, Asians, Latinos, gays, Jews Christians,or Muslims as friends or even :gasp: members of my immediate family.
stephley stephley 8 years
And what the heck, while you're saying FU and taking your own two feet from business to business trying to find someone to accept you - oh wait, you're a hetrosexual, white male in the United States. Never mind.

I don't need a court to stand up for my rights, I am perfectly capable of standing up on my own two feet.
Grandpa Grandpa 8 years
Actually Steph, my reaction would be more along the line of telling them "FU", and make a point to tell everyone I knew about that jerks behavior, and hopefully cost him some serious loss of business.

Really, why should gays sue? Why can't they just accept that some photographers, doctors, churches and other businesses don't want their business and go away? Certainly if any straight person walked into any public business and heard 'no, we don't work with your kind' they'd be cool about it. What's so hard about having to shop around for a business that approves of you enough to take your money? Sheesh, it's so undignified to stand up for your rights!

TrueSong, in philosophy that is called the "Natural law". That being sense of values that transcends all societies. Murder, stealing from ones neighbor, adultery, etc. fall into those categories. In theological terms, these are "sins" that transcend all religions, and all of mankind is expected to live by them, and will be judged by God, for breaking them, no matter the time, or the society.

Hainan, you said "Photographers have been threatened with legal action and have been taken to court for refusing to take part in homosexual weddings." i believe that is the height of stupidity to sue, and believe it was an agenda driven act, that reflects poorly on the gay community. The only way I would countenance such a suit is if there was only one photographer in the town, and that photographer had a monopoly on taking wedding picture.

I dont think the laws should always be based on christian laws, again I want gays to have all the rights of straight couples. I just want some protection to practice my religious beliefs without being sued. And Steph- you are intolerant of so much more then I, so please give it a rest. I am perfectly tolerant of letting them do as they choose and i should not be forced to participate. I fail to see how that is intolerance but i sure see a case of pot calling the kettle black seeing as you want me to be forced to do something i don't religiously agree with and so you are grossly intolerant of my religious beliefs. Grandpa- I am a photographer. Photographers have been threatened with legal action and have been taken to court for refusing to take part in homosexual weddings.

Of course not. And all the more reason to take our laws from secular morality.
