Those opposed to House Bill 2453, which aims at keeping individuals, groups and businesses in Kansas from being compelled to help with same-sex weddings, evidently haven’t learned from the past. In a way, weren’t we here a couple thousand years ago??? The ancient and primitive Greeks and Romans crassly valued homosexual relations. But eventually the people wised up and realized that was a mistake (e.g., Plato condemned homosexual activity), and homosexual activity was again logically deemed unethical and was basically driven underground.
Now, misguided “progressives” are trying to take us back thousands of years to more primitive and decadent times, despite the fact that thinking people have known for centuries that homosexual activity is immoral and a bad legal precedent. (It’s easy to show that all the arguments homosexuals use to try to rationalize homosexual activity are seriously flawed.) It may surprise you that some colleges like Harvard now have officially recognized student groups devoted to promoting the acceptance of BDSM—sexually deviant bondage, discipline, sadism, and masochism. That’s right. If you are a student who gets turned on by smacking people around, some colleges like Harvard now have groups for you! Bizarre. (Are Neanderthals running that school?) He who has eyes to see, let them see.
The “logic” of heterophobic homosexuals is rapidly leading this society down a slippery slope to a more and more aberrant, disordered, and irrational society. Polygamy is coming soon. Maybe down the line we’ll see “marriage” between straight and homosexual consenting-adult incestuous people! Whoopee! Anyone who thinks this is progress is deluding him/herself.
Rome didn’t fall in a day. But it did fall. Let’s not join the race to the bottom.

All the bakeries and photographers and caterers that people think are being so horribly put-upon? They aren’t in the business of providing spiritual guidance or enforcing moral doctrines. They are there to turn a profit. As such, they are obligated to abide by prevailing civil rights laws, whether those laws protect people from discrimination based on race, religion, or sexual orientation.
Should a restaurant owner be able to refuse service to Blacks because he has “moral objections” to race-mixing? Should an employer be able to fire a Muslim employee because he wants to run “a nice Christian workplace”?
If they answer to both question is NO, what justification is there refusing service to a Gay couple who wish to get a wedding cake or celebrate their anniversary in a restaurant?
The logic behind this article is flawed. Assuming that the move away from the public acceptability of homosexuality in Ancient Greece and Rome was the result an evolution in human mental cognition completely misrepresents the the impact that the dark ages had on western culture. A brief history lesson reveals that much of the social reforms that took place during this era, many of which stunted growth (in all aspects of society), were largely championed by the Catholic Church.
We have always feared change and the social progress our country is making has made many nervous. Religion has served as a bed rock by which people can indoctrinate their own personal fears and feel justified. Someone’s personal attractions shouldn’t be governed by the religious beliefs of others.
All Americans are entitled to their own spiritual beliefs. That right can only be protected when all faiths are protected, by enshrining one faith as superior to another we undermine the whole basis of our rights and in the end we open ourselves up to being ruled by the faith of the majority, which may not always be our own.
