Coming Back At Ya

Steve’s wondering why religious people should get special exemption from gay rights legislation. Some of us would ask the opposite question. Why should gays get special rights in the first place ?

Sure, these people claim gayness is equivalent to, say, race, but I have six words for them: ‘not one drop of gay blood’. Doesn’t really work, does it ? No one’s talking about checking out someone’s family tree, it’s all about the life they lead. Hey, maybe there’s a genetic element to it, but maybe there’s a genetic element to being obese, or a drunk, or a smoker. No one’s demanding that being a fat chain-smoking hooch jockey is off-limits to debate, nope, it’s only the folks who like to hang out with all the boys who are a protected species.
