Common sense says homosexuals aren't a victim group if they win at the polls. They have lost subjugated standing in the courts by winning at the polls.
you correctly applying the term "common sense" is neither common nor do you apply sense.

Yes and no, as we have seen in this country for many decades a group may win at the polls, but still be victimized by a loud or dangerous minority.

It is true however that this is just common sense, and as usual, America may take a long time to get to what is right, but it usually does get there.

The bigots never go away completely, they just go into hiding when their bigotry is no longer socially acceptable.

Umm, shut up, stupid.
If a person said they were a Christian, but that they didn't believe in god or Jesus, I wouldn't believe they were really Christian.

You clearly don't believe the Wiccan Rede, so I don't believe you are Wiccan. "Do what you will, so long as it harms none"

I offer this counterpoint...
The deviants never go away completely, they just stay in hiding until their deviance is socially acceptable, through forced legislation and propaganda.
I, for one, labeled as a bigot, will not go into into hiding, nor will I stop in my drive to see normality and sanity prevail. To propose that same sex couples are to be accepted as equals to heterosexual couples is ludicrous. To deny that there is a major difference in the very fabric of the relationship between hetero and homo couples is to reject sanity. I do not purport that homosexuals are real and have a place in society, I merely refuse to accept the forced inclusion into the "club", whether through forced legislation, or through the use of special interest groups, lobbying to push same legislation through the government. I have no doubt that any polls showing that a majority are in favor of it are biased and using a pre-selected and carefully screened group. If it were otherwise, then there would be no need for special laws to protect this minority group. The very fact that such laws ARE necessary show that this group need special care and protection. Any minority needs that.
You offer logical fallacies and nonsense.

Thank you for providing an example, you donít win at the polls, so you assume everything is rigged. Your primary goal is to try and deny rights to others different from yourself.

Yes... a loud and dangerous minority
