[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Tim Thomas Had a one liner today on his face book : Classic mistake. Here's the thing, JWensink: The argument is for more freedom of choice. If someone wants to marry someone of the same sex, you can be grossed out by it if you want, but you shouldn't be able to stop them. Just like racists are allowed to be racist, but they're not allowed to harm people of other races. This is a different proposition from "Sharia law," as that would be restriction of freedom. The point is people like you feel you get to decide who has the freedom to do what. You embrace freedom... on your terms. When someone else claims freedom to do something you don't want, you say it's infringement on yours, which is bogus. THAT is what people bash people like Thomas for: being all "YAY AMERICA! YAY FREEDOM! ...Buuuuuuutttt I don't like what YOU'RE doing, so you can't do that," instead of embracing that the freedom that allows you to do what you want also allows others to do what they want. I want to coexist in a world with ALL people, including people like Thomas. But actively trying to restrict the freedom of others, as Thomas advocates, is not acceptable behavior in such a society.

First off Mr lack of brain power -
I never said I was opposed to same sex marriage - I'M NOT. I could care less what consenting adults do. It's none of anyone's business- including and most importantly the Fed Government. What I am opposed to is hypocrisy.
People like you want to move the line of what THEY consider to 'be acceptable behavior" and then have everyone else conform or else be labeled as homophobic, racist, intolerant, etc..Which you have done with your response. You use the term "freedom of choice" as a way of changing what is and is not acceptable based purely on your own views. You have become the very thing you rail against. The "freedom of choice" you describe does not include those who have opposing views- like TT. There is a cultural meltdown in this country, and I've seen enough.
We have reached a point where the man that stands up and states that marriage should be between a man and a woman is viewed is an extremist nutjob.
The same people who advocate same sex marriage, and trumpet the virtues of freedom of choice- are also the same ones who will make it illegal to buy a large soda, or own a toilet that uses too much water. It's about control, and has got nothing to do with freedom.
