Here are the questions I asked Novatwit on another thread when he was trying this unequal meme:
Have you been denied the right to vote? Have you beed turned away from a restraunt?
Have you been made to sit at the back of a bus? Have you been told that a lunch counter is "straights only?"
Has there been a seperate water fountain for gays at any place you've been to lately?
Are there signs in the town where you live warning gays to "get out of town by sundown"?
Homosexuals have been denied education, employment, and housing.
Homosexuals have been (and are still) a target of discrimination and violence.
Homosexuals have been extorted by the police as individuals and businesses.
Homosexuals have been (and still are) targeted by the police for selective enforcement and with intimidation tactics.
Homosexuals continue to be treated differently and unequally under the laws of the federal, state, and local governments in regards to marriage, taxes, and benefits.
The fact that the gay rights movement has been successful in reducing some of these things is not evidence that they never existed or that the kind of people who practiced and promoted these violations would not gladly return to the good old days that they openly and unapologetically lament in their passing.
Nobody turned fire hoses on Orientals and Jews either - but that doesn't mean there weren't civil rights violations there. Where did the Constitution say that Jews and Orientals had a right to buy a house in Chevy Chase? It doesn't. It says that they have a right to equal protection under the law.
All of which can be taken care of with civil unions. But you already know that. This isn't about being able to marry......it never was...it's about tearing down the foundations of this country and forcing people to accept your alternate lifestyle as normal...something that hasn't happened yet.Homosexuals continue to be treated differently and unequally under the laws of the federal, state, and local governments in regards to marriage, taxes, and benefits.
And that pisses you off to no end...thta much is obvious in the bile you spew on the subject.
