All this insanity is really just an attack on religion, particularly Christianity. The State is flexing its moral-less muscles over religion, in a thinly veiled expression of superiority.
When you boil Communism down to its core, it is nothing more or less than institutionalized atheism; a government system that abolishes or subjugates religion to secular authority. Then the strong rule, and those who are not strong are subjugated to the few. This is where we are heading if people continue to do nothing about these relentless attacks on Christianity. It is becoming a juggernaut and one day will be unstoppable if Christians remain complacent.
Although I didn't ask them, I met a "couple" just last night who've been together for something like 20 years. These two gents have whatever kind of glue holding their relationship together that you or I might have with our own spouse. I don't apologize or make up with my wife because of a legal "marrage" or because I'm a christian. We stay together because we love each other and work at it. After 20 years together, you've got to realize they must do the same.
I don't think these two are attacking religion or christianity in any way. I think like Doug's picking on fondness for goats, saying it's a deliberate attack on christianity muddles the debate and weakens our side's argument.
