Minding ones own business doesn't usually include announcing a sexual preference, that is asking for a reaction, either of acceptance, rejection, or silence (silence, that's odd, eh--reverse DADT, but they are allowed to break the DA part).
It can be hurtful to the one being addressed, because now you will be forced to hold your opinion, of something that may be highly immoral to you, and if opinion is spoken of non-acceptence--judgement will be rendered--GUILTY-- non-pc homophobe hate crime.
Held up by the media as terrible evil(like this article in several papers, for example) or the military guy who has a negative opinion of homosexuals losing his job if he isn't silent
Just asking a question about a real policy isnt the end of the world.
If a question is asked for the sole reason of an answer--there is no need to declare sexual preference. Just as Santorum stated. The man expected preferential treatment and I highly suspect he wanted to get a reaction. That is not pure of heart and only seeking an answer.
Will Christian beliefs be as protected as sexual preference?
I must have missed all the oppression of Christian belief in this country of 80%+ Christians.
Where did all this victim stuff come from? Talk about lefty infiltration.
