Where do you see homophobia at?
My stance is that it is not the Federal government's nor the State's responsibility to legislate marriage.
I understand and respect the point that many bring up in regards to the sanctity and religious aspects of marriage. There point is valid within the
circles of the society they operate. That is protected under the First Amendment to be able to worship how they see fit. What is not protected is
their forceful attempts at placing their faith upon a whole of society through legislation.
That said, the State and Federal governments should also drop out of the fight because they are now choosing sides in regards to religious freedom.
What we see here is the classic battle between a society that holds a certain moral standard that was never regulated nor legislated; they need not be
nor should they ever be and the crowd that wishes to regulate or legislate their beliefs into society.
In a perfect world, this would be a community or city issue. Since the States should not have the power to tell two consenting adults, who find it
mutually beneficial for tax reasons (as really that is all it is about when you take out the religious aspect of marriage), that they should not be
together as a family unit.
Continue to call me something that you have no idea about. Attacking a character that you do not know shows even an argument that I agree with as
more emotional and illogical.
