Comments on: How do you change the deeply held beliefs of a nation? Here’s one strategy. http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/04/16/winning-the-freedom-to-marry-and-what-comes-next/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: hometown http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/04/16/winning-the-freedom-to-marry-and-what-comes-next/#comment-1074656 Wed, 01 Jul 2015 02:12:24 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=39616#comment-1074656 He says, “After cracking the code on the right kind of message, we focused on the delivery. We told true stories about how crucial marriage is to the lives of same-sex couples. We built a powerful drumbeat with reinforcing messengers — not only same-sex couples, but their parents, grandparents, children and friends.”

Yes, this was working with most of us, until the Supreme Court pulled the rug from under that few hold-outs. Now, we have to protect the rights of the hold-outs. You just couldn’t wait a few more years, when you’ve waited millennia, could you? Thanks, for your brotherly love, NOT!

What a time to be alive.

Their platform remains unchanged and pushes more bans, yet their restrictive marriage bans are crumbling around them.

And you know what, republicans? I told you so.

Fellow believers, let’s not forget who drove them to this point… WE, that is, the Church did. The state is permitted to sanction whatever unions they want to. We have failed to put forth a coherent orthodoxy and follow a consistent orthopraxy. We started the melee, and we lost. IMHO, there are other very serious issues we can concentrate our time and formidable resources toward- other than this issue. Let’s fight something we can win and will do us all some good… affordable healthcare, ending homelessness, equal pay for women, sensible immigration policies, fair tax system, climate control, strong military, etc.

They want to control our very thoughts, they want to force us to embrace sodomy and AIDS spreading and murdering babies as birth control, and if you don’t? Then they go after your job and try to ruin you, saying your personal beliefs are “prejudice” or “racism”.

It is Homosexual, not GAY! I am so sick of them changing the very language.
I am not “homophobic.”
2 percent of the population, dictating to the other 98 percent is decidedly UNamerican.
Which poll? Oh, the author fails to mention that.
Most would vote for homosexual pride, just to shut you people up.
It is aberrant behaviour, that is not common in the animal world.
This is likely the worst written “article” I have had the displeasure to read in a long time.
The normalization of aberrant behaviour to benefit 2 percent of the country is not an elimination of homophobia, its an affront to freedom.
