In response to Laura Perrins: Gay marriage has been imposed on the US by unelected judges, Politically_Incorrect wrote:
It is bizarre and unjust that this minority (the LGBT lobby) should hold such power over the Supreme Court and therefore the country. There are other, far more deserving people, who hold much less influence over the courts. The reason the homosexual lobby gets away with it is because it has an uncanny way of bringing about coercion by striking fear into the hearts of those who oppose it, especially public figures.
Perhaps “fear” should be replaced with cowardice, since one can fear something without yielding to it. Almost none of the political figures seem able to resist.
But the real problem with gay marriage is all the political and social baggage that comes with it. This includes loss of liberty for many. Even in “free” Britain, several people have lost their jobs, or suffered other consequences for supporting traditional marriage. This is the problem and it was predicted by many.
Don’t think it will stop at religious liberty either. Take the recent case in Italy where, as part of the “equality” agenda, schoolchildren were forced to cross-dress. It did result in large protests by the parents. The way things are moving, any failure fully and openly to support the pro-gay agenda will be deemed “homophobic” and dealt with harshly. Yes, we have been warned, but is anybody listening?
