    Because to me it is morally wrong from a religious perspective.

    I also find the life style repulsive.

    Other than my personal misgivings it should be legal under a secular government like in the US.

    Totally respect that.

    This too.

    BAM! And there it is. Something you said that DOES NOT MAKE SENSE. How on Earth would a God fearing Church goer such as yourself know ANYTHING about the "gay life style". That's just stupid. I dont actually think you know what it is in particular that you find repulsive about it.

    I heard of an incident awhile back where two guys got kicked out of a restaurant for making out. I have to admit, it would make me totally uncomfortable to see that.

    and if it were two girls? like, hot ones?
    Nobody 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.

    I'm very suspicious that they wouldn't have said anything had it been a straight couple.

    I have no trouble conceding that it's unlikely they would have done the same if it had been a straight couple. Now I don't care to watch a straight couple swapping spit either, but I admit that watching two dudes doing it is more disconcerting to me.

    So? It doesn't mean we can trample on peoples rights because their having them makes us "uncomfortable".
    Im not saying "feel guilty for feeling that way". I'm saying, you might not like it, but at least realize and respect their right to do it.

    Now if it was a place where children hung out and the punishment of being thrown out was being applied consistently to all sexual orientations then fine. Otherwise im horrified to hear this and i hope legal action is taken.

    Let me ask you a few questions.

    How do you know I was always a Christian?
    How do you know every place I have lived in my life?
    How do you know everyone I have encountered in my life?

    If you cannot answer those questions, you have your answer.

    Understandable, but should they get kicked out of a restaurant for doing so when in all likelihood the same wouldn't have been done to a straight couple? Is this not a form of discrimination?
