  1. Liz, you’ve provided a well balanced & informative presentation. Like you, & many others, I tire of the ‘new minority’s’ intrusion in my life every day. Having any issue forced in my face quickly negates any positive thought about it I might have. This is no different….As a ‘free’ American I value choice. even if different from mine. I ask that this respect extend to my selection of life as well. (I won’t let my kitty to make a sandbox in your petunias if you keep yours out of my strawberries)

    Mark is so on target about the government has no place in the bedroom!! There most certainly ‘legal’ aspects that should be addressed without doubt. However there is NO legislation that can change the mind, faith or hearts of an entire Nation. I hear out cries demanding the whole pie when a piece at a time will make the pie sweeter & last longer. CONVERSATION NOT DEMANDS will move this discussion in to a more positive atmosphere. Respect is earned, not ordered.

    Imagine if all the energy & attention given to this issue was directed towards fighting the corruption of the elitist in Washington, Border security, invasion of Islamist Radicals bent on our destruction & truly vetting candidates before electing them…..ah well, it may be just a dream, but I’m working on having it become a reality.

  2. While I don’t particularly care for, or agree with homosexuality, I do not presume to know what is best for another person’s life either. If a person wants to be gay, that is certainly their right, and their choice.

    I also believe that Government should get the hell out of things that they were never intended to be involved in, such as who can and can’t marry who. Marriage, yes, is an institution – and one can reasonably argue that the institution is worthy of protecting; however, once the Government starts picking winners and losers in anything, social or economic, that is where the real contention begins.

    For example:
    Government should not be giving tax breaks to any groups of persons whether they are single or married. The entire Federal Income Tax code is totally used to engineer society, and is truly the enemy to a free society. Also, once Government gets involved in something, that is when it becomes a Constitutional issue. Once it becomes a Constitutional issue, then, of course, people are going to seek Equal Protection under the Law. The simple answer is to get Government the hell out of it, altogether.

    The First Amendment is only suppose to apply to The Federal Government, and it prohibits them from establishing a religion, and prohibiting people from freely practicing their religion. In no way, shape, or form, was it intended to be applied to “private” institutions. A private institution can exclude whomever they like.

    “There is nothing normal about feeling a compulsion to push one’s sexual preferences on the masses, proudly flouting societal conventions.” And, that is my only true point of contention. To a LARGE extent, I am a live and let live type of person; but, I also agree that no group or person should forcefully push their lifestyle choices, and beliefs, onto another group or person. If homosexuals want to, at least, have other people respect their choices in life, then, they also need to practice some humility, and NOT try to impose it onto us or our children.
