Appealing the ruling or amending the state constitution. That’s exactly what happened in California. Both sides exercised all of their legal rights.
Well mark my words, the gays will win marriage eventually. We cannot compete with Liberal LAWS that imply opposing teaching children to accept gays in school is hate. They will wear the people down to the point that nobody will care anymore, and the politicians will not ammend the Constitution for fear of losing votes. We are playing by their rules and we will lose. Californa has voted like 3 or 4 times banning gay marriage, and it keeps on coming. How much more do we have to tolerate this?
We are not at war. I’ve always hated the “culture war” rhetoric. Even if we were at war, we don’t just use any tactic we want, we fight the right way.
I have always loved that term because I happen to agree with it. And keep on fighting the right way. Or better yet, should just give up because it is the losing strategy. If all that matters is getting into Heaven, then it is pointless to fight a war that you cannot win. That sounds crude, but it is true? Why bother to fight, knowing you will lose? We should just give up and stick to prayers.
There is everything wrong with generalizing. It leads to nothing but mutual hatred.
Well back to the original comment: “There is no monolithic “they” who are out “insulting religious people”. Have you thought about all the people who’ll be caught up in your great purge that never even said anything?”
You cannot fight gay marriage relying on the fact that not all gay’s want it.
Disagreements are one thing, but political activism is quite another.
How does “fighting the courts”=“fire all the gays”? One is legal, one is vigilantism.
And one usually materializes when justice and law becomes bias, useless, activist or tyrannical. When the law becomes legislated from the bench by one or nine unaccountable men in black robes, then we are only left with taking matters into our own hands. Even Thomas Jefferson asgreed with that.
We weren’t a fascist nation, but we weren’t a nation of liberty and justice for all. While I follow the Church’s teachings with regard to homosexuality, if we fired and disenfranchised people for disobeying the Church’s teachings, there’d be nobody left.
Don’t generalize now, lol;) But the Church aside, is your concern fascism or Liberty and justice for all? Cause I don’t care what people do in their private lives, really I don’t. Religiously I have a problem with it, but that is me. But when they are demading “right’s” that are not their’s, and call me a bigot, a religious nut, and circumvent the will of the overwhelming majority of Americans in society, then everything changes. It is now a battle. And if it’s all about Liberty and justice, then how many other societal rules are we willing to throw away? Will bigamy be liberty and justice? Can I opt out of taxes? How about incest and legalized heroin? Shouldn’t people have the “Liberty” to do as they wish? In order for a society to have Liberty, it must also have responsibility. Either society contains itself, or the government will do it for us, in my humble opinion.
I am against a cause, but I am not against any people.
Then that is a vote, for their cause. Because a cause, is worthless without people championing it. God Bless
