Homosexuals have always had the same rights as heterosexuals -- to marry someone of the opposite sex. Gay marriage creates NEW rights. As to what comes next -- group marriages, incestuous marriages, . . . let your imagination run wild. When it comes to demanding "equal rights," there will be some bizarre entries. For those who are familiar with the term "Cultural Marxism," this is a "twofer." Gay Marriage is not only another nail in the coffin of religion, but it removes one more support beam from beneath the family as a critical element of civilization.
Watch "Bill Maher vs. an Intelligent Christian." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJQjpG-lGY4 Ross Douthat is the Religion Editor for the New York Times. In his book "Bad Religion," he explains how "Christians" are contributing to the destruction of Christianity. Douthat is smart, well educated and a practicing Catholic. He answers Maher's challenges with wit, humor and answers that make sense. Maher responds in a polite and respectful manner, realizing he has met his match. Maher has "made up his mind" about religion based on the poor defenses offered by the "religious people" he has interviewed. There are a number of Christian Apologists who could neutralize Maher's arguments using historical facts and logic. William Lane Craig and Frank Turek are two notable apologists who have debated some of the biggest names in atheism (Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and the late Christopher Hitchens.) There are many YouTube videos of these guys in action.

The Bad Jobs of Tomorrow, Today

It seems that the jobs of the future will require an advanced degree in a STEM discipline. That will leave the lower five standard deviations of the IQ bell curve to flip burgers or stock the shelves at BigBoxMart.. Let's hope that those lucky few who will have actual careers will earn enough and pay enough in taxes to support the rest of us. The wonderful thing about manufacturing (remember manufacturing?) was that high school graduates of average intelligence could earn a middle class wage with benefits. The "progressives" drove manufacturing OUT of this country by steadily ratcheting up regulations and taxes. Now, Communist China is enjoying the prosperity that used to be ours. Of course, it's not the Chinese people who are getting rich, but the honchos of the Communist party.

Paolo3, In order to get everyone on board, they had to tolerate slavery in those states that had it. They believed, rightly, that slavery would eventually go away.
I agree with Mr. Hawkins on everything except his petition to get Alec Baldwin fired for "making anti-gay slurs." That's what leftists do -- they shut down free speech by threatening the livelihood of those they disagree with.
