Defending Prop 8: Someone’s Got To Do It

I understand that my analogy may be deemed extreme, but the German people didn't see Hitler as extreme at the beginning of his reign. Moral decline is a downward slope that we typically don't ever go back up. I became convinced after seeing a Pride event & long discussions with gay friends, that this is merely a quest for validation for a deviant sexual lifestyle. I care for my friends, but it doesn't mean laws should change that will have many far reaching social & financial ramifications.

Defending Prop 8: Someone’s Got To Do It

I've read the above posts & sadly so much of it is based on emotional opinions. Tom, I agree that the system (regardless of who it favors at the moment) must be upheld. If it's broken, then fix it through legitimate means, but we can't change the rules after the vote just cause we don't support the outcome. If domestic partnership & civil unions give equal rights, what is at the core here? Is SSM really just a fight for legitimizing an historically immoral lifestyle in the public eye? My question is where do we draw a moral line? What determines right & wrong? If another group, such as Pedophiles wants equal rights, what basis do we have to say no? The majority of our laws are based on some sort of moral standard, yet several of the arguments above take an existential line which would allow the likes of Hitler, Stalin, & Pol Pot to be vindicated because they believed what they were doing was right.
