Citizens should feel free to support groups that share and advance their views without fear of recrimination enabled by the government.

“While the issue of same-sex marriage stirs lots of passions on both sides of the debate, one thing that should be clear is that citizens should feel free to support groups that share and advance their views without fear of recrimination enabled by government.”

—-Sean Parnell, president of the Center for Competitive Politics in Alexandria, Va.

    You fear recrimination from the government for saying you don’t support civil rights? The government is too busy to be worried about a small subset of religious zealots moaning about gay marriage. If anything, the government is endorsing ambivalence.

      Laekin, unfortunately the government is more than just promoting ambivalance. Have you seen Kevin Jennings or Chai Feldblum’s position on homosexuality? Or perhaps president Obama? All three of those people (all placed in positions of leadership) have endorsed the idea that homosexuality is just as good and productive as heterosexuality. In Chai Feldblum’s case, she advocates the position that the government has not only a right, but a DUTY to promote homosexuality. Part and parcel of that subset of arguments is the idea that all those who disagree with that position do so out of sheer hate and should be quashed. (nevermind the many social, religious and scientific arguments of a free people).

      Read up on the subject. There is plenty out there for people who have an open mind to see.
