You pointed out how gay marriage benefits gays, not America.

They don't tell any lies. They tell the kids that some people are homosexuals and they should be respected. I don't see any lie.
They tell big lies, they even tell a classroom full of straight kids that homosexuality is normal. Why do you suppose they do this?

Choice remains unimpaired, as it always has.
It is homosexuals and their supporters that want mandates. See Alameda Lesson 9. Totalitarianism and authoritarianism is more inline with the gay agenda. I'm for giving parents a choice. That wouldn't serve the gay movement though.

Just a few of the gay ones. There is no science that says it's normal or that you are born that way, just speculation on all sides of the argument.

When the Associations release clear statements, it isn't "just a few of the gay ones" doing the talking.

Then the same could be said about being blue-eyed or left-handed.

Just because something has not yet been scientifically proven doesn't make it true.

The Roman Catholic Church long maintained that the Earth was the center of the universe and that the sun, The Moon, and all the planets revolved around the Earth. Just because for centuries it could not be PROVEN that the Earth and planets revolved around the sun, did not negate the fact that it was true.

And if you disagreed with the Roman Catholic Church that the Earth was the center of the universe and that the sun, The Moon, and thw planets revolved around the Earth, you could be tortured and killed by the Roman Catholic authorities for saying so.

They didn't believe in Freedom Of Speech or Freedom of Religion (and STILL don't !). Just ask Giordano Bruno. Oh wait. You can't. The Roman Catholic Church authorities tortured him and killed him for daring to disagree with them by speaking the TRUTH.

As a whole, the Protestant sects were just as bigoted and intractable ... AND lethal.

One thing you have to say about NY is that regardless of what religion you are or not religious , it is A-OK.

I suspect AZ is not like that?

I've never experienced any sort of hostility or problems because of my religion. Then again, I'm mainline Protestant born and raised, so I wouldn't expect to. I attend a very nice UCC church which just happens to be 2 miles down the road from me. And since the weather is always nice here, I always ride my bicycle back and forth to church, rather than driving my car, because it's good exercise.

What if someone was Jewish, Muslim or Hindu how would they fare in Arizona?

"I always ride my bicycle back and forth to church, rather than driving my car, because it's good exercise"

Oh that is nice. Here half the drivers are savages and hit and run is common, driving with no drivers license and no insurance is a big problem and 60% think that in order for their vehicles to run they must text while driving.
