We cannot have moral feelings?

If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things?

Indeed.  Those useful idiots promoting the liberal progressive train of thought toward the accecptance of homosexual marriages would do well to note that our generally cohesive society is formed around long established notions of morality.  Basically an underlying view of what is right and wrong.

Many Americans do not want persons who openly engage in homosexual conduct as partners in their businesses, as scoutmasters for their children, as teachers in their children’s schools, as boarders in their home.  They view this as protecting themselves and their families from a lifestyle that they believe to be immoral and destructive.

Nine years later after that statement there are still many around the world that hold to those view on morality.  Really, do we want our little Johnnies or Janes to go off the rails toward homosexuality?  We sure as hell know that the little Mohammeds and Fatimas infiltrating our Western world will be held, on pain of their lives, to the doctrines that drive their societies.

Yes, if we cannot state our long held views on morality without being sidelined as a bigot by screaming progressives, I can only wonder where our society is headed.

Of course you can have "moral feelings", but far better is to have morality founded in rational humanism, morality based on "do unto others", on harm minimisation and on fairness.

Are you really incapable of seeing the difference between homosexuality and murder. If I am a homosexual, how does that harm you? If I were to murder you, how does that harm you?

Many Americans are bigoted, brainwashed by religious cults and incapable of reasoning. Scalia is chief among those.

Thankfully, most Americans are not bigoted, brainwashed by religious cults and incapable of reasoning. They are compassionate, thoughtful and growing.

David, that's some sentimental slop you appear to subscribe to.

In my view of morality, men murdering each other is immoral, as is men stabbing each other in the arse, along with other perversions. And I have seen nothing in the marriage for homosexuals debate that will cause me to change my view.

You may argue otherwise, as is your right. All I'm saying I have my views on morality, which probably differ widely from yours, but I too have that same right without liberal progressives screaming bigot or the like.
