James, "Marriage Equality" is a weasel term used by leftist pollsters. Yes, it's true that 50% (probably more than that) of the heterosexual population believe that same sex couples should have the same rights as man-woman married couples in the form of civil unions, not same sex marriage.

All rhetoric aside, what's truly amazing is that 97% of the populace (those with traditional values) knuckle under to these thought fascists. If everyone would simply ignore the homosexual mafia, their hissy fits would soon become the subject of laughter, derision and mockery.

I can't speak for Prager, but my sense is that he sees this as a tipping point, a "last straw," if you will; a juncture where 97% of the populace (those who hold traditional views) need to rise up and say, "Enough!" What's truly amazing is that 97% of the populace knuckle under to these thought fascists. If everyone would simply ignore the homosexual mafia, their limp-wristed hissy fits would soon become the subject of laughter, derision and mockery.

I think companies like Firefox and Chick-Fil-A are too quick to cave in. The liberal shouters and screamers' resources are not infinite. For one thing they're a distinct minority when it comes to the attitudes and beliefs of the general population.They can only keep up the hissy-fit demonstrations for so long before the tables turn and they find themselves the object of mockery and derision. Think about it, in the long run, who is going to obey some screaming jerk to stop patronizing your business, whether it's a hot dog stand, Chick-Fil-A or Walmart? Answer: a few other scraming jerks. And even they will eventually get tired and go away.
Right, I get your point. But I was referring to Larry Elder's example of Obama's phraseology, "That employers rip off female employees by paying them 23 cents less per dollar than men -- for doing the same work." The silver tongued Obama carefully avoids the word "equal" and substitutes the word "same." In most cases his audience is not quick enough or sophisticated enough to sort out the difference -- and he knows it.
I know a married couple who are both lawyers and who work for the same firm. They perform essentially same type of legal work. The husband earns nearly twice the amount earned by the wife. Why? Because the wife only works three days per week so she can spend more time with their children. So, the statement, "She earns less for the same type of work" is technically accurate.

I'm not certain that it's a "Lack of wanting to assimilate." The problem is our government making it so easy NOT to assimilate.... press one for English. Spanish-speakers are the only class of immigrants in our nation's history who are able to get along just fine without learning English. Their children are taught in Spanish, there are bi-lingual signs everywhere you look, most food products off the super market shelf have instructions in Spanish... and the list goes on. So, I don't blame the Spanish-speaking immigrants for not assimilating; I blame our government for discouraging them from assimilating. We are headed for a bi-lingual society, and that can only cause problems (California is a preview).
I don't see this as much different than what's going on in the military since DADT was abolished. Gay male soldiers can now enter the men's locker/shower room and openly gawk at the subject of their lust (the naked male body). But straight male soldiers are forbidden from entering the women's locker room to gawk at the subject of their lust (the naked female body). Go figure.

In other words, accede to anything the dems want so the voters will like us more? Sorry, but the strategy of trying to out-liberal a liberal doesn't work. Why should voters settle for Democrat Lite when they can have the real thing?

RE: "Personally, I would rather pay a nickel or a dime more for a hamburger than have Democrats sitting in Congress and the White House. Heck, using that logic, why not raise the price of hamburgers by 50 cents and increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour?
