GUEST,Musket evolving slowly BS: I am not perfect after all (414* d) RE: BS: I am not perfect after all 17 Jul 13


Yes, there has been a movement internationally to promote LGTB issues. Positive discrimination had always been an issue for any attempt at mere equality of opportunity. That said, if we have reached that stage, gay marriage should go through without debate as it reflects other rights.

But it doesn't. Not just because of old people who were taught it was wrong, not just because of rent a mob, not just because of desperate newspaper editors wanting to please shareholders by inventing scandal.   No. Because of mainstream politicians seeing the homophobic vote as being bigger than the pink vote. Because of religions refusing to see 21st century society mirrored in the medieval superstition that informs their words.

So perhaps in a way, the gay agenda isn't quite ready to back down just yet. ... As much as I find assertive agendas objectionable, I don't think they have equality just yet. We all fawn middle eastern states for business, Russia, etc etc.   Yet we are fairly slow at leading by example.
