Agreed.Most people who favor SSM are not in favor of forcing any churches to do anything they're against. It's just giving the same rights to people joined in a civil ceremony regardless of sexual orientation. I'd never support making a church marry two gay people if they're opposed to it. Some churches are not opposed to it, and I don't see why they can't. Any government saying what churches can or cannot do sounds like an abridgment of First Amendment rights to me.
So much angst and attention given to this genetic mutation of a lifestyle. We fiddle over these absurd "issues" while Rome burns. God forbid we vote based on economic and foreign policy; instead, 47 percent of the country is obsessed only with their right to abortion, entitlements, and whether Bobby and Steve can marry, adopt, and join the PTA.
In all fairness, I get equally pissed off at overt displays of religious zealotry. I see it as pretentious and strictly attention seeking.
Also, cool. You can be proud to be gay, just don't hold me up at lunch hour in Downtown Orlando to show me how "proud you are."
My parents always taught me that pride is from within, and one does not need to boast of it to be proud. Boasting, is artificial pride and a sign of insecurity. But those are my values.
