Oh- REALLY? Then why are Christians becoming more and more Christian values and symbols being pushed out of the public realm? Weather it be the 10 commandments, or a simple Cross displayed - these symbols are being removed because of fear that they might "offend" someone. If we don't have the right to "not be offended", then why the recent special considerations for non-Christians

Dunno. They don't have a right not to be offended either.

I might also suggest that your leftist rantings

Yeah, yeah - I'm the one crying to government here. Got it. I'm the one trying to make it illegal for gays to have sex, and I'm the one trying to stop a newspaper from doing what they want with their own paper.

I didn't see anything in Sweetliberty's post to you about whining to the government to make it illegal for gays to have sex - must have been what was on your mind when you read it....

What I gathered from her post was that she is sick and tired of the public displays as well as the unavoidable preaching of this abhorent lifestyle on TV and the media.

I also noticed that you didn't bother to give your own answer to my questions regarding laws that protect our "right to not be offended".

I find it difficult to belive that Sweetliberty would disagree with my viewpoint on the subject -

Homesexual behavior and lifestyle is morally wrong. Regardless of the legalities and our own personal beliefs, we can never prevent homosexuals from practicing their disgusting lifesytle choice in the privacy of their own bedrooms. The recent SCOTUS decision prooves that.

BUT, I totally refuse to accept public displays of such behavior. I should not be subjected to this behavior, nor should children. I also despise the way that the mainstream media is trying to force homosexuality on society as a "normal" lifestyle.

Just as much as those who despise having Christian values "crammed" down their throats, I hate having homosexual behaviour crammed down my throat everywhere I turn. If the athiests and freaks of this country are being "protected" by the courts, then why isn't the reverse just as "fair"?

Not everyone enjoys seeing me kiss my wife in public, and 99.999% of people would choose to not see me grope or otherwise project my sexuality with my wife in public. Thus, I have a sense of decency and save all such behaviour for the privacy of our own home Is it too much to ask similar descression on the part of homosexuals?
