Why can't some people understand that when it comes to RIGHTS there is no compromise?
How would things be if we had compromised on the rights of blacks or women to vote, or on the rights of the slaves to be free? Why should people be forced to compromise what they are ENTITLED to, what SHOULD be granted to them?
Can't people understand that the idea of compromise, when it comes to rights, indicates getting less than what someone is entitled to, and is, in actuality, an insult?
OP- I totally agree with your comment. I just wish some could for 1 moment empathize with folks with different beliefs. I understand and except that some think that marriage is a binding sacrament before God and their community. I am not denying that right to those with that belief. How come those with that belief can not accept and respect that everyone deserves those exact same rights? I AM NOT DENYING THE RELIGIOUS GROUP 1 DARN THING; NOT TREADING ON THEIR RIGHTS AT ALL- How come they can not do the same?

How is gay marriage limiting any faith group's rights? How does gay marriage desecrate the rights of churches? No one is forcing churches to marry anyone-folks are just Assuming that it will progress to that level. Please give clear, concise, measurable examples of how gay marriage forces any faith group to GIVE UP one thing-
