Can it be un-American to be a Christian?

Boycotts and even violence have a long history in this country and those instituted in the name of religion far more common in Christians against non-Christians that the other way around – an expected statistic given Christian's majority status in the US. Christians have the same right to 1st Amendment freedoms (speech, press, and religion) as do non-Christians. The Constitution was definitely nor created to protect the majority's moral sensitivities from "attack" by those who choose to live their lives in a way that is different from but has no materially effect on the way others choose to live their lives.

Homos already HAVE "equal" right to marriage;
they can marry another person of the opposite sex the same as any other person.
That IS the definition of "marriage";man-woman,it's been that way for several thousand years.

This is all about the REDEFINITION of "marriage" to be something it's never been,and thus FORCING other states to recognize the abomination via Article IV,sec 1.

Of course,some people IGNORE the second part of Article IV,sec 1;
"and the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts,Records,and Proceedings shall be proved,and the Effect thereof."
Congress "prescribed the manner" by enacting DOMA.
THAT alone allows DOMA to be Constitutional.

Congress is SPECIFICALLY given the power to decide,and they did.

Is that meant to describe homosexuals? Because if it is, it doesn't fit. Medical costs associated with homosexual AIDS cases ALONE constitute a very "material affect." And that's just the beginning.

Maybe it's not due to homosexuality alone, but come on... what is it, some 70% of AIDS cases coming from 2% of the population?

There's a good reason AIDS is associated with homosexuality. The shoe fits.

The current hate campaign being waged by homosexual activists against fast food chain Chick-fil-A, because of the firm’s Christian values, may well turn out to be a bridge too far. The effort may prove to be a setback for homosexual activism.

The vile attacks on the firm and its owners, the Cathy family, should make clear, finally, that the “gay rights” movement is not about refining and advancing American freedom, but about rewriting American values and advancing, not freedom, but the homosexual political agenda.
