Now I am confused by your posting and maybe you can answer them back up with facts. After all we should all use facts to determine the truth of the
matter; such is the nature in the USA legal system and not just based on pure emotions.
Now you state that Homosexuality is against nature and god, yet fail to take into account the following points, perhaps you can clarify such for us
As you mentioned God, can you please tell us which God are you referring to? After all if the founding fathers did not like each other all because of
the religion they followed, then which one is the correct belief that we should look at and consider?
But then again, as this is clearly a legal issue, most if not all courts in the United States of America, do not use religion as a valid excuse as to
deny rights to anyone. If that were the case, and there have been in the past, where religion was used as a valid means to allow for discrimination
and even slavery. Do we now go with what the majority of the country would look in horror at, and that would be laws based off and defined by a
religious nature? If that is so, then why is the very concept or even mention of Sharia in the legal aspects is often fought against if not outright
rejected in the USA? There are plenty of countries where religious doctrine is still the basis of laws, from some countries in Europe, Africa, and
the Middle East and to Asia. And the punishments for violating those religious laws, all because the are recorded down in some book, are very harsh.
Would we go back in time, where we deny rights to groups because it is against what would be considered God’s law?
I am also confused as to where in any holy text, and being an avid reader, is homosexuality mentioned specifically in any text? No text, to my
knowledge states, homosexuality directly. It is vague and alludes to.
Now according to most statistics, as documented and seen, it seems that when gay couples move into a neighborhood, the property values of the area
tend to go up. They tend to take very good care of the property, tend to ensure that they are good neighbors, and tend to do things to make the place
look very nice. In fact, it is seen that in areas where they move in, people tend to want to move to, as it is clean and the houses look very nice,
tasteful, a place where you would want to raise a family. Is that such a bad thing? Source
) And this:
If anything the experts, the economist are all stating that by allowing for same sex marriage, you are opening up a new market that would require
services and those that are already there could very well see a boost in sales that means more jobs, more taxes and better town and a better economy.
Now you mention a homosexual uprising, and that no nation has ever survived such. But funny, the Macedonian Empire lasted a good 700 years before
falling to another Empire. And then there was the Roman Empire that lasted over 1000 years, and both allowed for homosexuality. The Spartans were
considered the most feared warriors around, and they were all homosexuals or bisexuals. So is that how the USA going to go?
Or could the decline of the USA be something else that is a bit more obvious, like the federal government and the numerous laws that restrict?
