"More like a fascist one. The government that outlaws positive depictions of homosexuality is one that can just as easily do the same if the subject is guns, conservatism or Christianity."

The majority of Americans are dead set against the (minority) homosexual agenda, yet the homosexual agenda continues to advance, even to point of direct imposition on the majority of the population.  How is this happening?

The majority of Americans are dead set against the (minority) Islamic agenda, yet the minority Islamic agenda continues to advance, even to the point of direct imposition on the majority of the population.  How is this happening?

What if facists (and facsim), in various forms, began to undermine the freedom of the majority?  What to do then?

Because we don’t have the intelligence of our ancestors to know the difference between protected political speech and immorality. And we don’t have the courage of our convictions to enforce our morality through tough legislation.

You sound as if you're advocating less freedom to preserve...freedom?

The answer to speech you don't like should be more speech, not censorship. Once the government gets the idea it can ban controversial ideas and speech, it never stops.

You might think that is fine, if you're in agreement with such government actions. But what do you do when the government turns its censorship powers towards your books, ideas, religion, etc?
