The problem with homosexual activists is that they just don’t want to be tolerated. They want everyone to change their own lives, and ways of thinking, to embrace their “lifestyle” wholeheartedly. Such is the case in Atlanta, where a country club has sued the city to block a $500/day fine for refusing to extend domestic partner benefits.
The city passed a law four years ago requiring businesses to extend all the same spousal benefits to couples registered in the city as “domestic partners” as would be extended to people who are actually married. But now the country club is fighting back, pointing out that the city has exceeded its authority and indeed is even going against the newly passed amendment to the state constitution that bans same-sex marriage.
This is why constitutional amendments protecting marriage are so important. This isn’t about so-called “homophobia.” This is about protecting our right to hold to traditional morality, a Christian morality based on the will of God as expressed in Scripture and Tradition, a constant teaching passed down by the Church over 2,000 years. No group should be able to force the majority to throw out their faith using the force of law, but they’re trying.
