"(Robinson) He refuses to bend to hatred or what he calls,'heterosexualism.'
"It's a word he favors over homophobia, something that too many people easily dismiss. Rather than fear of gays, too many people have combined prejudice and power to push gays out of society, he said.
"'In large and small ways, the culture is set up to say,'You don't measure up,' Robinson said."
But it's a culture based on the Bible, specifically 2 Corinthians 13:5: Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you — unless, of course, you fail.(NIV)
"One of those ways is marriage, he said.
"'Britney Spears gets drunk and gets married and gets all these rights just like that,' he said, snapping his fingers. Yet, Robinson and his partner of 21 years, Mark Andrew, are still waiting for their civil union to be considered a marriage."
Simply because two wrongs doesn't make one right.
