My BIL and SIL emailed me that petition and I signed it (the other way
) I didn't say anything to the inlaws, though (someday but not now)
That was a few months ago, however.
Here are my thoughts about rights and people giving you rights.
You (everyone, editorial you) have certain inherent rights regardless of the opinions of others.
'problem is when someone is a minority they are at the mercy of what the majority is willing to give.
I think a culture can be measured by how much the majority (or people in power) acknowledge about the inherent rights of minorities.
And, yes, the Bible says to love (your neighbor, your enemies, 'sinners') so, unless the Fundies are secretly having gay feelings, they should be focusing on their duty to be kind and loving instead of pointing out what part of the bibe others should be focused on.
This always gets me.
