What a load of crock.<quoted text>
Yes, equality certainly is in the eye of the beholder. And for centuries, mankind has been focusing on that issue.
Each time the question is raised, "Are we as a society treating everyone justly?", individuals and groups have differing responses.
Since the beginning of this country, issues of religious freedom/equality, gender equality, racial equality, handicap equality, and others have been raised and addressed. They're still being addressed.
Over the past several decades, the question of LGBT equality has been raised. And based on how previous questions concerning equality and freedom for various groups has been answered, those related to LGBT issues are being answered as well.
Our court system, legislative process, etc. "beholds" issues of LGBT equality through the same lenses that they have looked at gender, racial, religious, and disability issues.
That's how equality is in the eye of the beholder...
You are equating opinions with reality.
People have opinions about equality, and always will differ.
The law is assigned to judge those opinions based on reality and protect the victim.
Like abortion, homosexuals have been equated to marriage, not based on reality, but on a manipulation of the law motivated by public opinion, not reality.
In the case of abortion, a woman's right to her body costs a baby the right to their life.
In the recent case, a mutually sterile, duplicate gendered half of marriage is equated to marriage.
Lady Justice just threw up.
