We must understand the real target of the Left in this matter. Gays already have civil unions. Their ultimate goal is to eviscerate First Amendment freedoms of association and forever separate governing from the influence of religious thought.

Instead, they seek to use the pretense of "discrimination" and "hate-speech" to turn traditional religious rituals, customs and beliefs into criminal activities subject to government oversight and "correction." The echos of 20th century socialist tyranny are chilling.
Sex is always interesting, but mix it with politics in a presidential campaign and it becomes downright sensational. First Amendment guarantees of free speech get lost in the protest when gay couples meet to make out at Chick-fil-A. Instead of ordering the spicy chicken sandwich, these men and men and women and women spice up their relationship with rage against Dan Cathy, the born-again president of Chick-fil-A, for saying he supports "the biblical definition of the family unit."
