I totally agree with the following:

South Carolina Mayor Doesn’t Want Gay Marriage ‘Rammed Down My Throat’

A North Carolina county official decided this week to accept marriage applications from same-sex couples, despite the state’s gay marriage ban, saying he didn’t find it fair to deny marriage licenses to “upstanding citizens.” The move, predictably, received mixed reactions, but it got Linda Oliver particularly riled up.“What’s it gonna take these queers to realize they don’t need a piece of paper,” the West Union, South Carolina, mayor wrote in a Facebook post that was not deleted quickly enough to avoid screenshots.“God will not bless their union because he plainly speaks against queers in the Bible. Want to cover your queer with insurance? Buy a policy. Want your queer to get your stuff when you die? Make a will?” Oliver’s post, unsurprisingly, was not well received by the LGBT community, and a retaliatory “Recall West Union SC Mayor Linda Oliver” Facebook group has already been created. But Oliver saw the blowback coming and she doesn’t really care.“All I can say is if people want to crucify me, that’s fine,” she told Fox Carolina.“I don’t want [gay marriage] rammed down my throat.”

Alabama: Let’s Castrate Child Molesters

It’s probably safe to assume that a harsh punishment for child molesters is something everyone can agree on. But Alabama state Rep. Steve Hurst may be taking things a bit too far. For the second time, the Republican from Munford is proposing a bill mandating that child molesters whose victims were under age 12 be castrated before being released from prison and pay for the operation. Hurst sought to get the castration bill passed during the last legislative session but failed. His legislation doesn’t specify what kind of castration process the bill would mandate, but as of last year at least nine U.S. states had sex offender laws that include chemical castration—the process of administering medication that removes a person’s sex drive and ability to perform sexual acts. Still, it’s unclear how frequently that form of punishment is actually used.

I really don't care too much about gay marriage, doesn't really effect me.

tying these two subjects together doesn't really make sense, but.

Child molesters, now there I can speak up...I completely, emphatically, say that until the law says, mess with a child you die, this crime will continue.

Back in the day, Ravenna did just that. A child molester would go in and come out in a body bag. No one said a word, no one cared.

Now...folk would flip out. Why, I ask? Hard to say how anyone could okay that. Mess with a child, die! Easy as that.
