I haven't noticed the Netherlands and Canada getting the Sodom and Gomorrah treatment.

Gays can already write up contracts for mutual support. What they WANT is the extra rights and privileges that marriages confer through the build-up of court decisions and tradition. They also want 'legitimacy'. But an ill-gotten title produces legitimacy like ill-gotten money produces class.

I hope you're wrong about that one. I'd like to think that most judges would throw that one out; it's not only a religious institution, it's an actual church with a literal sanctity. Moreover I'd like to believe that when the gays finally manage to shop a hateful judge that the big churches will kick in. Hell, the Vatican can kick in.

Policing America

SWAT gear is not the uniform of policemen; it is the uniform of the terrorist, of the executioner, of the lynch mob. There are occasions when government has no choice but to use grenades and fully automatic weapons against citizens who are engaged in heinous crimes that could result in innocents being killed, or are obviously armed and planning to shoot. Absent these situations police should not dress up as ninjas and break down people's doors.

I can't agree that gay marriage - in and of itself - harms Christians. Sins becoming legal is nothing new. Christians know not to sin. Nor does gay marriage harm original marriage. Keeping a vow is an internal, not external matter. When Christians are compelled by law to aid gay marriage...that is an entirely other matter. Such laws are bigoted and unConstitutional. That gays cheer when this happens is especially despicable. They know what it's like to be on the outside and their eagerness to see it happen to Christians is moral bankruptcy, As far as the courts ruling that gays may marry gays...that's a foul. We have legislatures for making and changing laws.

Is There a Russian Conscience? A European?

"...hypocritical to talk about Europe's morality regarding Russia while ignoring Israel's." 1) Israel is a small country. Smaller still when compared to Europe as a group. 2) Israel is kinda busy now.

Bryan Fischer doesn't speak for the right wing, he speaks for the American Family Association. Of which I know nothing - best guess is that they're a medium-sized Baptist outfit, one of dozens. Just looked up the quote. 'lion of Christianity' was used facetiously.
You should be put down like a rabid dog in the streets. Well, unless there are morals I mean.
"Usually, it's because of bullying and a lack of supervision and leadership by those who can do something about it.." Where did you get this from?
Moral equivalence means never having to judge. 'Everyone does it' means never having to be judged.
