OK this has to be the pivotal point of our argument.ASM, please address some of the rest of my posts. For many in the homosexual community, this is about more than a piece of paper or a law. This isn't about tolerance-which many Christians actually do a very good job of, although you wouldn't think so from the media.
I say: gays want legal and social equal rights.
You say: gays want to force everyone to accept homosexual lifestyles.
I just disagree with you about that. But, using your logic, shouldn't homosexuals be allowed equal legal rights while not forcing people to accept homosexual lifestyles?
Suppose I am correct and it IS all about at piece of paper. Would you be in favor of allowing gays to legally marry with the comfort of knowing that it will, in no way, threaten your religious beliefs?
