Let's pretend for a minute that the opinions of those who feel sexual orientation is a choice are correct (for the sake of this question) - why do people seek to deny protection to those who are LGBT, yet religion is most definately a choice (you can choose whether or not to be religious) - and extremely protected - to the detriment of those in the LGBT in some states (new bills passing to discriminate etc) - please be civil (will remove any personal insults towards anyone etc)

I find it intriguing that most who use the choice arguement for the reason to deny right are usually those benefiting from the rights to choice of their religion. Thanks for your answer - it's interesting what people have had to fight for.
I totally agree the younger generation is thinking forward but I think a lot more heterosexual people are more tolerable than years ago. The issue is what people say out their mouth might not be what's in their heart
Thanks for that. I'm not American or in the US so some of the 'choice' arguements are just weird to m. Now I get it more!
Are you saying the Constitution is NOT American? It's something we've preached for over 200 years but suddenly it isn't American? Haven't studied - not just read - the document? No, then of course it is foreign to you, what else do you expect?
The0 - no, I'm saying I live in New Zealand, so it IS foreign to me. Do u understand the Treaty of Waitangi? The protection of a choice in protecting religious belief yet using this choice to deny protection 2 another 'choice' is what is weird to me.
I apologize for my ignorance of your location, Forgive my ignorance? The USA is considered the "world's ruler" by people of many nations and whatever she say the rest of the world has generally followed is why LGBT isn't accepted like religion.
Thankfully, NZ doesn't follow that part - though we've only had marriage equality for a couple of yrs - we still had the same arguments re choice. But in the end - choice or not - people are equal, and so should their marriage rights be was what won.
