In Response to Re: Tim Thomas Had a one liner today on his face book
[QUOTE]Hmm... gay marriage is legal in Canada; has been for quite some time. And yet, amazingly, despite the horrible threat which it poses to my "traditional" marriage, my wife and I have been going strong for almost 23 years. Equally amazingly, despite the presence of same-sex marriages occurring in my city, I haven't felt compelled to leave my wife and take up with a guy. And despite being stated in the Ten Commandments that "Thou shalt have no other Gods before me", and the presence of people living in the U.S. who don't believe in the Christian God, people like Tim don't feel the need to become Muslim, Buddhists or Jewish. Perhaps, just maybe, people who have different views on life can actually co-exist in the same place? Now there's a tenet worth embracing.

What a crock -"DIFFERENT VIEWS" you really mean YOUR views
And even more amazingly than that, it's people like you who really get to decide what is acceptable and what is not... because you are in essence stating what everyone should accept based on YOUR own views.
If YOU decide to support gay marriage then anybody who disagrees gets attacked for taking such an absurd position - in YOUR view
TT the nutjob believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman - right?
You think gay marriage should be recognized by the Government- right?
How about Polygamy?
How about sharia law?
Don't like those? Why not? What's the difference beside the fact that YOU have decided what is acceptable.
Then ... what YOU are really saying is that You know what's best for everybody else, and YOU will attack anybody who disagrees with what YOU feel is your enlightened position.
It's not any high moral ground you're choosing- it's really about YOU telling everybody how to live based on YOUR own beliefs. You don't want to
"co-exist" with someone like TT- you want him to conform to what you arrogantly believe is best for everybody else.
