Quoting Let the rain fall:" I didn't think it was that difficult to understand.. For them to have all of the same rights straight ... [snip!] ... it is irritating seeing as she would probably be a better mother than half of the crackpots they are letting take these kids."
I support the same rights for gays, civilly, as I do all groups of people. However, I also support the rights of private organizations to be able to not be infringed upon, simply because of public pressure. Boy Scouts shouldn't BE MADE to include gay leaders and members. They teach traditional values. That should be respected. Churches shouldn't HAVE to marry anyone...at all...not just gays.
If someone stands firm in their religious and biblical beliefs, they should not be made to violate those beliefs, as long as they are doing harm to none.
For every one bakery that refuses to make a gay wedding cake, I'm sure there are 5 or 10 more, MORE than willing to make it.
