Let me just follow up by saying that if you stood me up next to a gay male and compared our rights, there are no rights I have that he doesn’t have. He may want more rights because he likes to have sex with little boys and the law currently prohibits him from having sex with, or marrying, little boys, but his rights are no different than mine.
And as soon as you made the assumption that a gay man is also a pedophile, you lost the thread. Talk about a moronic statement.
Btw, SCOTUS has determined that marrying the person of your choice is a right. Though they were focused on race at the time, the comparison is pretty direct.
Omniscience just sucks without omnipotence!

- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
