The resistance against gay marriage is probably the best evidence that Christians and other religious nutjobs are not after "tolerance" but rather "domination". If a Christian does not want to marry someone of her/his own sex, fine. That doesn't harm me, it doesn't change me, it does absolutely nothing to me.
On the other hand, how exactly is a Christian harmed by -say- Elton John's marriage? How am I harmed by his marriage? How is anyone at all harmed by his marriage?
I submit that Elton John is far more harmful to me because of his irritating so-called "music". That's a lot harder to ignore. It grates on my ears. But... I still have the option to go to another room when it is being inflicted on me.
But his marriage? What exactly entitles a Christian to determine where this guy sticks his dick? What exactly entitles a Christian to cry foul and claim "persecution" when Elton John is legally allowed to stick his dick in his husband? Can someone explain this to me? I really am too thick to understand it.
