Special Rights

Christians continually accuse gays of demanding special rights, rights that gays alone will enjoy. What is so unique about the right to marry the person you love? What is so unique about the right to hold a job if you work diligently? Surely Christians demand these rights too, or would if someone tried to take them away. Playing word games, Christians say that the right to marry someone of the same sex is a special right. We gays are happy to offer that same right to Christians too. The right may not mean much to them, just as the right to marry an opposite sex partner is not meaningful to gays. Blocking gays from marrying is just as bigoted as blocking a mixed race couple from marrying. It is interfering with love. It is claiming you know better that the couple if they should marry, even though you have never met them. What arrogance!
