    It shouldn't be.

That seems to be more a cultural issue than one of rights.
    Both the institution of marriage and the LGBT community predate Christianity. It would seem therefore that Christianity has sought to redefine it.

    everyone can say they are married.....everyone gets the same rights.....everyone is under the same laws

    and the churches/religions still have their sacrosanct title to marriage to give to their parishioners

    i dont know why this hasnt happened.....it is the most logical thing to make everyone happy.....
    That quite possibly could answer this dilemma.

    Then we may need to remind them of the reciprocation of compromise.

    Only in the sense of perception. And we all know how often perception trumps reality.

    Therein lies the contention over the issue, and I'm not seeing the religions changing their doctrine and their teachings, as it's part of their core.

    I don't seem to recall LGBT activist groups and lobbyists throughout history. It seems that these things are a recent invention.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    So what? That doesn't invalidate my point. Marriage wasn't the creation of homosexuals so homosexuals I don't know what makes homosexuals think they are the authority on "the word". The "breeders" that homosexuals ridicule have every right to be hung up on the word and the institution. It's theirs and you merely want to have it changed in order to co-opt it. You don't have to like the explanation. It just is what it is.

    They are definitely a recent development and I think the rush to embrace the fad of homosexual "marriage" is an amazing shift because we are seeing what may arguably have been the most static, traditional, permanent and up changing institutions of human social structure across the entire globe and virtually all history. Time alone will tell if the progressives are as smart as they think they are on this.

    I merely explained why there are a lot that don't. I don't have to take up anything with anybody.
