And Bill, I ask you the same questions as I just asked Gingee in my above post - why don't the sins, the abominations, of pride and wicked imagination, of lying, or of any of these other things cut a person off from God? Why is it you only believe being g a y cuts a person off from God when all of the other sins mentioned are ALSO abominations?
Now, as to what I posted being "not true", well, I believe the things that YOU have posted are not true. How is it that these school children were "forced" to attend a gay pride parade and WITHOUT the parents even being aware of it? Tell me what school in this country could take kids on a field trip of ANY kind without getting parental permission slips? There's this thing called insurance you know, that REQUIRES parental permission. And I guarantee you cannot show me a link that tells about the uninformed parents putting up a stink when they found out. No lawsuits, no complaints to the board of education. Nothing. That's because IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.
No one is asking for "special laws" for g a y s. All they are asking for is equality. They want to be treated like any other Americans. Nothing special, just fair and equal treatment. An end to discrimination. They want to be able to exercize their right to the pursuit of happiness - that means they WILL be able to be with their loved ones during hospitalizations. They WILL be able to get on each other's insurance. And if they are ready to be in a committed relationship, let them marry.
No one has ever been able to explain to my satisfaction why they think marriage equality harms "traditional" marriages. Please tell me, if they guys down the street get married, how exactly does that harm YOUR marriage?
