And at 12, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

No doubt some of those protesting have no clue what the law would actually mean and are just following the scaremongering leaders.

If gays can get married I might dump my wife. ….or she may dump me...
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

These people litterally disgust me. :yuk:

More than 350 black and Latino ministers and members of their flocks rallied against proposed updates to the city's nondiscrimination ordinance Tuesday at City Hall, rejecting comparisons between the nation's historic struggle for racial equality and current efforts to safeguard rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

“While we love the people involved, we cannot allow their agenda to stain the fabric, the tapestry, of the civil rights movement,” said the Rev. Charles Flowers, an African-American pastor and early opponent of the measure.

Jim Crow laws, lynching and slavery are not shared experiences with the LGBT community, he said, joining others in asserting that choice — not genetics — drive same-sex attraction and gender identity.

Words fail me on the level of fail expressed here. Discrimination is discrimination, whatever flavour it comes in. Arseholes.
The Bible is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies.
