When asked about his perspective on social issues--gay marriage, abortion--Prince tapped his Bible and said, "God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like,'Enough.' "

Prince said.“People with money—money like that—are not affected by the stock market, and they’re not freaking out over anything. They’re just watching. So here’s how it is: you’ve got the Republicans, and basically they want to live according to this.” He pointed to a Bible.“But there’s the problem of interpretation, and you’ve got some churches, some people, basically doing things and saying it comes from here, but it doesn’t. And then on the opposite end of the spectrum you’ve got blue, you’ve got the Democrats, and they’re, like,‘You can do whatever you want.’ Gay marriage, whatever. But neither of them is right.”

Well....there no need to go so far as to make it illegal. However, i would like to see it confined to dark, windowless basements preferably with walls heavy enough so i cannot hear the grunting.

Sounds like a real crisis, my friend. Whatever shall we do?
In you country the constitution posits equality under the law.
So what you can do is either grant those rights to all, or remove them from the heterosexual ciitizens; I don't see you getting the latter passed by legislation.
Your constituion is either one of mankind's greatest achievements, or it's just a "scap of paper".

What is your idea of "sensible faiths", my friend?
May I reply with a quotation?
Gautama Buddha said:
Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

A lot of what you've listed can be done through Power of Attorney, Wills and other legal documents.
Indeed, and you have to pay a lawyer for each of those items. For the poor, and for older folk especially, what should be their rights as citizens can be beyond their financial reach.

Other states don't want the gay agenda forced on them.
It is interesting to see that your regard the rights tacitly enjoyed by the heterosexual part of you citizenry as inalienable for them only, and when the gay citizens demand the very same rights, it sunddenly becomes "the gay agenda forced upon" the states.
To quote Oliver Cromwell, "Consider ... thay you may be wrong."
Knee-jerk thinking is just not good enough for a civilised man or woman.

What amazes me is the simplicity of the argument against homosexuality clearly spelled out in the bible in the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. These 2 cities were engaged in homosexuality as well as other sins and God laid them to waste. The message there is glaringly clear. All of these arguments about genetics and blah blah blah are irrelevant.... If God says it's wrong guess what?? IT IS WRONG.......
Oh, wow! And God has told you all that?
I doubt it.
All cities throughout time have "engaged in homosexuality", and he has left them be. Maybe raping angels was the crime - and that has ceased to be a common occurrence since Genesis was written.
To start with the bible, have you read about Gilbeah, where a similar situation is supposed to have arisen (Book of Judges, chaps. 19 and 20). It led to the murder of a concubine and a pogrom whipped up by the local Jews.
No divine intervention that time.

During Oliver Cromwell's era he would have had "gays' executed.

I thought Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed because they weren't hospitable, my friend.
