I don't live in CA, but I would have voted for prop 8 if I did.
Gay activists talk about it with the rhetoric of "rights," but what they are really demanding is the right to redefine a fundamental cultural
Name for me a time in western civilization when gay marriage was the norm, or even legal. The Romans didn't practice it, except for a few
megalomaniac emperors like Nero and Caligula. The Greeks never practiced gay marriage, even though some greek states (athens at the time of
aristotle) were tolerant of paedophilia. But not gay marriage.
But 10,000 years and hundreds of varied cultures were "wrong" if you listen to the radical gay left. It is 3% who are "intelligent and right,"
and the other 97% majority who are "hopelessly bigoted and ignorant."
Demanding the "right" to radically redefine a major institution is like me, demanding the right redefine what a birth certificate means---say,
demanding a legal birth certificate for my imaginary friend. You might say that a birth certificate doesn't apply to imaginary people--it's only
for actual humans. But if you did you'd be oppressing me with your societal norms. you bigot, you.
Or me, as a protestant, suing the catholics because they haven't made me pope. Never mind that the papacy doesn't apply to me, and I don't live
the lifestyle (catholicism) required to be pope---I want it now! So you'd better redefine what it means to be a pope, or catholic, so I can bee one
too! It's my right to be pope, equal on every level with that old nazi dude in rome! Ouch--Your oppressing me, you bigot!!!!!
See, it's all about what I want, not about what society wants!!! Society exists to serve me and my friends. Not some religious concept of a
mythical "collective good."
