exactly, Freedom of speech is not freedom from consequence

"Why can't i say what i think without the leftest liberal agenda calling me a bigot"

Because we are both using Free speech

These people's (I hesitate to just say conservative because liberals and independents can be guilty of what I'm about to say too) true intentions always come through when they start decrying government trampling of rights then proceed to not acknowledge how their own positions trample rights.

It's a sad reality, but historically, when a group of people are struggling for their civil rights (there have been several examples in our history), there's always a "backlash" from those who do not support equality. The response to blacks' civil rights struggle was Jim Crow and the resulting racism, which still exists today. The response to women's liberation is the ongoing "war on women" where women are denied full autonomy over their body and their personal, private decisions. Sadly, the LGBT's struggle for civil rights has and will continue to have casualties.

This is just something I found that talks about the backlash against women's struggle for civil rights and I believe it mirrors the LGBT struggle today.



Liberation, as Faludi further suggests, has now became the true American scourge. Just when women’s quest for equal rights had started to gain ground with extensive affirmative action programs in place; just when women had joined the ranks of virtually all the male dominated and prestigious and even macho professions; just when laws protecting rape victims and battered women from being belittled and attacked in court, almost predictably an antifeminist resistance set in. For everyone or two steps forward, there has been one step back.
...
We can say, in short, that efforts are underway to punish women, both biologically and legally. And we can also note that the phenomenon that Susan Faludi spotted and documented as early as 1991 was to grow much more pronounced in the years that followed.

I think groups of people don't fight for their rights until they feel they've become strong enough for the fight; and that strength is necessary because as they "win the battles", there will be more and more resistance.

People have the Freedom of Religion to preach against gay marriage, eating pork, drinking alcohol, or anything else; but they do not have the right to enforce their religious rules on others, because to do so, is taking away Freedom of Religion from others, and Freedom of Religion is supposed to be for all legal citizens, not just themselves.

I wish more people understood this.

I Completely agree... that is something i don't understand why women.and everybody really, but in this case Women can't have control over their bodies and their personal choices

and this is why people who use religion as an argument and now saying they are going to get their "Religion" taken away doesn't make sense, they have been invading everyone's choices for centuries

They are afraid of loosing their Religion to a "One world liberal agenda" but they want their religion to control everyone... like a "One World Religion"

Odd how there's a lot of resemblance between the two... Save who's in charge.

Blind to all save their own self-righteousness.

Yes, i think people forget that Religion is a Belief system that no one has to believe, that is why there are many different Religions and Belief systems from New Age to Magik to Pagan to the more traditional Religions and their offshoots

i think people also tend to let heir responsibility of self fall back on their religion.. 'It's god words' 'Gods Law' 'Gods Will' etc. so they can get away with prejudice or bigotry or racism and have it fall back to what it says in the Bible... and not everyone is like that.

But if Equality is going to Destroy the Religion of people, how strong is their Faith? and how strong is their actual Religion?

The other countries that allowed Same-Sex Marriages before the US haven't fallen.. is the US that Weak?

Unfortunately, there are still far too many women who believe they are supposed to be subservient to man.

Mostly in the religious culture.

KrazyshOt:I'm confused as to what this has to do with Islam at all... This country isn't under Sharia Law and it isn't illegal to draw a picture of Mohammad.


vhb: We become more 'infidelized' with this law. Now we are in real trouble with the long (head beheading) arms of "across continents" Sharia Law. What happened to common law long term relationships/it takes care of this issue.


KrazyshOt: What? Is this being ironic or funny? Because it doesn't make sense as a serious post.

It was intended as BEING BOTH; and you are NOT my judge or juror in determining the value of "the seriousness of said post". Though I am still on the run I may turn myself into authorities.

Next they are going to extend age and sex protection...like Mohammed, whose last wife in the 600/s was an eight year old. Way to go Supremes! Next you wont even have to identify the sex of your intended, let alone age. True freedom is upon us, thanks to Islam in the White House! wait wait.. is that already in the fine print of the Supreme court decision??? never mind.
