I'm just gonna say: sinister is in the Eye of the Beholder.
Equal Rights - Equal Dignity was fought and won legally in court.
You have told me on multiple occasions that it is a war against Christianity and that any compromise that led to equal benefits for same sex couples would not be accepted and only gay marriage would be accepted.

Gay folk are not all pedophiles in fact the percentage is the same for heterosexuals.

This is being done in various ways, the tactic I'm referring to is the recent legalization of gay marriage in all states, along with the acceptance of the lifestyle virtually being forced upon those who show a hint of opposition.
On the surface this is just a blatant attack on valuable morals

Oh I was just recalling how you said that a compromise of civil union would not be accepted in lieu of gay marriage and that you are part of a war on Christianity because of the past persecution of gays it is necessary to seek retaliation in the thread I made about civil unions and how marriage altogether should not be a function of the government. It is all in there. My assertion is that there is a war against Christianity. Do you disagree? Have you changed your mind now that a goal was reached cause if so that would be a good thing.

Jesus said if you love me you will follow my commandments and the commandments of my father. God states you shall not lay down with a man the way you do with a woman. And if you do not follow any of his commandments then you reject him. I once believed live and let live. But now I can't support such an abomination. By supporting them I too will be condemned. Do not confuse yourselves is this love or lust. God is OK with man loving his fellow man but the lust part is what he opposes. This goes for heterosexuals
As well you can love a woman but do not lust for the flesh until marriage. Lust is one of the 7 deadly sins. God knows man is weak and he does forgive but he doesn't forgive the state of sin. Jesus was not politically correct he said things that shocked everyone. He spoke the truth he said it how it was. As for homosexuality I see it like the emperors new clothes. Everyone is too afraid to speak out against it. Not me. I don't hate gays but pray for them to stop sinning. Satan can't touch you unless God gives him permission. Now that we are at the 7th millennium God has commanded Satan to work harder to take as many souls as he can. The gates of hell are wide open. Enough room for all. Too me homosexuality is
The gates of hell.

first off, everything the feds do applies to me. sanctioning, or banning, any sort of act sets further precedents for them to exert their will directly upon me at a later date.
second, a person would have to be delusional to think the feds actually care about the "plight" of homosexuals. it was a political stunt. nothing more. nothing less.
that's why i prefer things be dealt with at the local level. in my mind, that's how you truly judge if the times are changing. for instance, it is claimed that prior to the revolution Iran was a very westernized nation. yet there are sources stating that the majority rural areas were still very tradition and did not support the pro west regime. if what the national government said truly mattered, them there would never have been a revolution sense the population would have resisted it.
third, claiming that what homosexuals are going through is akin to the civil rights movement is total nonsense. if this was taking place in the 50s, or a modern muslim state, i would agree. however, homosexuals dont face any where near the discrimination, within the US, that blacks faced during the civil rights movement. even back then i highly doubt the feds would have stepped in if they did not see any sort of gain for themselves.
on a side not, i am still shocked that california outlawed homosexual marriage.
