California Proposition 8

Yes8_rgb_250px.jpgBesides California on Proposition 8, Arizona and Florida also voted to define marriage as between a man and a woman.

Instead of getting into a whole argument about rights, etc., I only have one question for critics of Proposition 8.

Should an incestuous brother and sister couple be allowed to marry?

Differences in Opinion

respect_fergie.jpgRecently, a friend of mine got entangled in a discussion on California Proposition 8 which defined marriage as between a man and woman.

Besides Christians, Muslims and Jews also supported this proposition.

Because my friend expressed his support of Proposition 8 and revealed his views on homosexuality, he was roundly pilloried for it by his pro-homosexual friends, being condemned as being intolerant and even being un-friended on Facebook.

Some of the things I learned is that people will be upset with just having a different opinion than them, so be careful about who and what you reveal to people.

However, being condemned for having a different opinion is unfair. Real discrimination is when someone denies you a seat on a bus, or refuses to give you a job, a place in university, a promotion.

To merely have a different viewpoint and being condemned for it, is the real intolerance.
