How do I stop people forcing me


I am tired of everybody being labeled a bigot or homophobic because they don't agree with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender group. Businesses are being threatened with bad publicity or their establishments being burned to the ground. Politicians are being forced to go against their own principles and morals to appease a small group of people. The politicians were elected to represent the majority. The majority of the people are against gay marriage. If this issue was voted on at the ballot box, I guarantee it would not pass because the majority of the people would vote against it.

I have friends and family who are gay. I don't like this issue being crammed down my throat. I believe the majority of the people feel they are being force-fed the gay marriage issue. I feel that two men together and two women together goes completely against nature. If they want to be together, that is fine. They need to keep it to themselves. I keep reading in the paper that we won't be able to hire the best and brightest because of the law. I guess the rest of the population is a bunch of dummies. Everyone is afraid to say anything for the fear of being labeled. People need to stand up for what they believe in and not be bullied.
