Some of your own states have been waffling, changing their minds, leaving same-sex unions (that were at one time legal and then they aren’t) in limbo. Of course some people don’t like it, but the course of a nation can be changed by the heart and outspokenness of its people.
If someone is stupid enough to lose their job and life savings over a battle that is basically impossible to win, they probably deserved it.
You didn’t understand my comment about Human Rights Commissions. This is not about individuals or companies going out and looking for trouble. It’s about magazines being charged with “hate literature” when they speak about homosexuality, it’s about the Knights of Columbus being charged with “hate” for not allowing the booking of a homosexual wedding reception in their hall, it’s about a bishop being charged for hate speech for opposing same-sex unions in a pastoral letter, it’s a bout a teacher who lost his job because of a letter to the editor in his local paper. The Canadian Human Rights Commission was even tryng to prosecute a case against an American resident, based upon what an American citizen allegedly posted to a mainstream American Catholic website (Catholic Answers forum)! And do note, that under the human rights complaints process as it exists, a complainant’s legal costs are covered, while a defendant must pay for expenses out of his own pocket.

What I am saying is that obviously it didn’t ruin society in Canada so there is no reason to believe that it would ruin society in America.
How can you put it in the past when it’s still in progress? The “marriage” laws are quite new. The moral decay is insidious–it’s like any other new laws or changes in society, which take time to show the true impact.
Is Canada so bad? I don’t hear about Canadians speaking out about gay marriage, just Americans. Have Canadians just accepted the fact that gay marriage is legal and are just going on with their lives?
I think you need to do your research. Do you have access to LifeSiteNews? Do you read Catholic Insight? Have you googled for information about what’s happening to your northern neighbor? Do not think we’ve been quiet. And the U.S. is not far behind us–Obama has an agenda, in opposing bans for same sex marriage.
And about the fight, and speaking out, I leave you with this:
If we want to re-establish the beauty and value of marriage, fighting the homosexual lobby will not suffice. The most important thing is to reaffirm the link between marriage and procreation. And that means fighting the contraceptive mentality. lifesitenews.com/ldn/2005/jul/050711a.html
It’s all tied together, and same-sex “marriage” is a symptom of a deeper societal moral decay.
