Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA), which stipulates marriage is between a man and a woman (as God intended it). It was an act that goes contrary to the will of the people, as Americans are overwhelmingly not in favor of gay marriage. It's amazing that a handful of people on a court can make an unpopular legal decision that openly defies the will of 75% of a nation. That's not democracy.
In a nation with a large Christian majority and millions of Muslims, the Supreme Court's decision defied both religions in conduct that has caused offense among millions. The two biggest religions in the world, Christianity and Islam, forbid homosexuality and gay marriage. To ask people to defy their religious beliefs and faith is inappropriate and unconstitutional. Said conduct violates religious freedom. It's a lot to ask, demanding someone to betray God and their religious beliefs over your alternative lifestyle. I'm not trying to hurt gay people, but it is too much to ask.
However, many in the entertainment industry, the face of the gay movement, have harassed, threatened and bullied others in acts that are directly contradictory to the tolerance they demand. You cannot force your views on others threatening them with financial, emotionally and social ruination as Hollywood so frequently does, if they do not bow to your point of view.
It is your right to live your life as you please, as long as it does not infringe upon others' rights. It is your right to be gay, but not to force it on me or anyone else. I state this for a reason, as I have been constantly harassed by certain high profile people in Hollywood, who are trying to force their lifestyle and point of view on me, in seeking to get me to promote their alternative lifestyle on my websites - despite the fact they know I'm a Christian and it goes against my personal beliefs. The lengths they have gone to is astonishing (I will write about it in greater detail in the future and name names as well).
President Barack Obama, sensing a minefield in the DOMA decision, has come out stating he will not force religious institutions, such as churches and mosques to perform gay weddings. While Christian churches would have protested and boycotted such an unconstitutional move, with some, not all mosques it would have been another story. It would have been "on like Donkey Kong." Can you imagine what would have happened had the government tried to force mosques to perform gay weddings.
Obama stated, "On an issue as sensitive as this, knowing that Americans hold a wide range of views based on deeply held beliefs, maintaining our nation’s commitment to religious freedom is also vital. How religious institutions define and consecrate marriage has always been up to those institutions. Nothing about this decision — which applies only to civil marriages — changes that."
