What really drives me crazy in all of this is how the Christians are being singled out in this nonsense. Even goofier is how the only churches being
singled out are predominantly white.
I am not Christian and I am about as white as Barack Obama.
Does anyone realize that none of the Major Religions on earth accept the concept of homosexual behavior, especially Islam possibly the largest and
fastest growing religion in the world. Some faiths are more tolerant, meaning less or no discrimination towards the activity but none accept the
behavior. Its more or less seen as a taboo fetish by every major religion.
Even if for whatever reason gay marriage is accepted here, within 50 years at the current rate many places around the world may overwhelmingly be
Muslim with Sharia Law. So as the United States is recognizing people with various sexual festishes as distinct minorities legally entitled to mass
social acceptance, Europe by this time will probably be in the process of instituting Sharia law.
What an interesting world that will be in 50 years, I figure by that time pedophilia, incest, bestiality, sadomasochism, coprophilia, and
exhibitionism will each constitute a legally "protected" minority. I absolutely guarantee that Technosexuals, people that really really like robots,
will be a legal minority by that time. I would not doubt that we have this same silly marriage issue pop up then too, because someone wants to marry
his Cherry 3000.
Overall my point is this, this age of tolerance in the West is like a burning candle. Eventually it is going to burn out and the experiment will end.
Things will go back as they once were as the masses fundamentally seek the solace of faith, especially as resources dwindle, the environment changes,
and the desperate turn to violence. America may find itself being very lonely and surrounded by those who not only find our ways unacceptable but are
violently, possibly genocidally intolerant of the society in America at that time.
So enjoy all of this while it lasts, have fun with the debate over the issue but try to keep things in real context, as in global and historical
context. Don't single out any religion especially current Christians of a particular race or ethnicity. If anything I would be worried about the one
religion and its law that is growing exponentially throughout the world, where even in modern moderate Egypt you can be arrested, convicted, and
executed for being homosexual.
Have a nice day!
