Progressives have to make laws to force everyone to conform to THEIR "ideals." Boy Scouts ban gay scout leaders? They condemn the Boy Scouts instead of FORMING THEIR OWN group. Women hit the glass ceiling? Form your own companies (or religion). Leave "what is" alone. I don't want anyone legislating dictates to my emotions. I don't want to be forced to subsidize, support, endorse or embrace something that I don't approve of or that I don't care one way or the other about. Too many laws, too many rules forcing me to do things (or pay for them) and I start to get really angry, esp. when my party sits idly by.
