Would you accept half freedom? It's better than no freedom at all, right? I mean sure, I have all of MY freedom, but I'm only going to offer you half freedom. No? Well, how about three quarters freedom? Come on, it's close enough isn't it? It's a give and take in a negotiation so you've got to give up something. No? Oh my God you're so greedy!!
If the above isn't acceptable, why do we, Americans, ask our gay brothers and sisters to accept it? We should not. They deserve all the freedoms we have, not because we approve or disapprove of their lives, but because it is just.
Here's some of what Mr. Marley has to say about this.
That until that day
The dream of lasting peace,
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
But never attained -
Now everywhere is war - war.
Justice and Freedom for all is the only acceptable path for humanity.
