Civil rights concerns about these laws.
What would I do if my child was gay and they wanted to get married? It was comparatively easy to talk about being gay on a societal level, and even to speak about my own experiences with it.
But what about the one thing that really matters: What would I do if my child was gay?
If this child wanted to get married? Because at this point in their life, the time when he or she would be making such big decisions in their life, I would have already imparted everything I can to him or her.
Why on earth would I push that child away? G-d forbid that anyone, religious or otherwise, would push away their child or family member or friend when they make a decision that goes against their values. G-d forbid that we should even think in such a way.
No, I would hug that person. I would hug and kiss that person, because they are family, because they are a love in my life. And aftertward I would live an example of a life that matters to me so that they can see why I take it so seriously.
So why is it so wrong to stop this person, an adult, from making a decision they believe in?
I thank G-d every day that my parents still embrace me despite my choosing to becoming religious, choosing a life that is in direct conflict with their own. I thank G-d every day that I live in a country that allows Jews to live safe, productive lives because it gives them equal rights. So why should I care if that same government wants to deal with its citizens the same way I deal with my children and my family and my friends?
I keep asking myself: Our nation is going down the crapper! All of this sounds to me like a reactive parent dealing with his child rather than a proactive parent. They put themselves down in the dirt of an argument with their child instead of rising above.
This is the way the religious are dealing with the issue of gay marriage. They want to ground their gay kids, whether real or metaphorical. The main strength a religious person possesses in relation to the secular world is that he lives for something.
He has a mission.
On the other hand, the life of a religious person, a truly religious person, has absolutely nothing to do with these principles. These principles, according to a religious person, are only important insofar as they give us a chance to then fulfill our mission in life.Jesus and the homosexual.

A brochure on the door of the Episcopal Chaplain's office at Stanford University reads, "What did Jesus say about homosexuality?". Non-religious arguments against "LGBT rights" groups (NON-marriage-related): Please note that some of the arguments are more about "for negative view of LGBT rights activism " and less about "arguments against LGBT rights" per se.
In opposition to hate crime legislation: In support of hate crime legislation: The legislation is not needed. "Every crime they cover is already illegal under existing state and local alphabetnyc.com legislation is needed.
Protecting a group under hate crimes legislation will make the public aware that the group is vulnerable, has been extensively victimized in the past, and is in need of protection.
The most common and popular arguments against gay marriage, mostly religious in nature, are easy to refute because they're based on serious errors. There's a fight the religious need to engage in, but it's not about legalizing gay marriage.
