Companies have the right to fire people they hire.
American citizens have the right to their own opinion, even if it's unpopular.
Homosexuality is a choice.
I find that particular choice disgusting and morally wrong (same as telling lies, cheating on income taxes, cheating on a spouse,...). As American citizens, even though I believe homosexuality to be morally wrong, those who choose to be g@y have the same rights as other citizens. I do not believe they are entitled to special rights or privileges, just the same rights as everyone else. If the laws are changed to be more in line with what I believe to be morally right then those who choose that path have lost those rights. The same can be said for sexual predators, child molestors, those who mistreat animals, etc. Sexual predators and child molestors lose their rights to privacy for the rest of their lives - they must be registered and their residence is posted on the internet.
Those who say you can not legistlate morality are wrong. All law has it's base in the common morality. If a society believes it is wrong to take something that belongs to someone else, that person is labeled a thief and prosecuted according to the laws regarding personal property. Kentucky, like other states, repealed their sodomy law over 10 years ago. Why? Was it to protect children who were sodomized? No, that was the original intent of the law. g@y rights activists successfully lobbied to repeal the law and thus legalizing the act of homosexuality in Kentucky. Now, those who chose to engage in g@y acts are legal. Children who are sodomized are out of luck. Their attackers may be prosecuted for child molestation, but the charge of sodomy can not be added and the resulting penalty can not be tacked on.
Off my soapbox now.
Didn't realize g@y was a curse word.
