If you believe in traditional marriage, YOU are a criminal and the Democrats don't want you anywhere near the party.
So, the reaction from evangelicals is a natural reaction which sometimes goes too far. Most evangelicals I know are against war, want it dropped, but don't want anymore gays in authority positions.
This isn't about gay or anti-gay. This is about the constitution and freedom of speech, lets all remember it.
If you want to live your life in some promiscuous way, go right ahead. Just don't you dare tell everyone else how to live theirs or try to force it on them through government, state church, business. Period. Especially if you are homosexual. Your rights end where the other person's nose begins.
Learn to be tolerant of those differences. Being gay isn't wrong, but being gay or a drug addict and then taking over a position as high as Senator or Governor is absolutely an abomination.
It leads to nothing good and further loss of freedom.
