Putin has certainly grabbed Trump by the pussy. Payback is a bitch.
Still confusing for you, I know but basically it means that the govt involvement protects both's rights, one side that would desire it and one side that may or may not. And I agree with the govt protecting people's rights.
And yes, ensuring equality can be messy....but how much longer should blacks have had to wait after the Civil War? The Civil Rights movement was 100 yrs later. 100 yrs later, Jim Crow was still alive and well in the South, as well as some other places.
Yes, it was messy and even violent.....should the govt have just 'avoided' any action to move it forward and let the discrimination and injustices and literal dehumanization of a large group of people...citizens... in our country go on until that overt and legal racism just petered out on its own (IF it would have)?
There was no outrage, were no campaigns organized to end adulterers* and fornicators from marrying/remarrying, no legislation proposed challenging it, no 'family organizations' handing out pamphlets at the grocery store. Nor anyone speaking out against felons...murderers, rapists, pedophiles....marrying while in prison. No campaigns to keep athiests and the 'godless' from marrying.
No, just gays.
*The Catholic Church does forbid, still I think, adulterers to remarry in the Church but I'm not sure)
