That's an anecdote, and it seems that there's a mean spirited message there. Why would you be glad to see a divorce? Did one of the two decide to come out of the closet, or was the glee really pure bile?<quoted text>
In 1977, Dade County, Florida passed a law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
Pop singer Anita Bryant led a campaign to repeal the law.
She argued that homosexuality was a sin, and that it could be overcome through commitment to Jesus Christ.
Jerry Falwell took a trip to Florida to help in the campaign.
The law was subsequently repealed in 1977 and not reinstated until 1998.
In 1980, after preaching about healthy sexuality, Anita Bryant and her husband got divorced.
That was a gleeful day for the gay rights activists.
Now, discrimination based on sexual orientation. What is it? Are we allowed to discriminate against KKK members or people of another political affiliation? Yep! That's politics. You can't change your genes. You can change just about anything else, your religion, your political affiliation, your taste in music.
I'm against most social engineering. I accept some of it because discord is not in anyone's best interest. There is a point where the victim becomes a litigious crybaby who won't stand on their own feet. My solution is that if the majority won't live with you, do your best to befriend the minorities until you collectively become the majority.
Anita Bryant worked within the system as did the gay rights groups. Everyone's Constitutional rights were protected.
You haven't disproven my comment that sexual orientation is political at all. You've reinforced it!
