What civil rights really mean

I found a great blog post that explains very plainly why same sex marriage is not a civil rights issue.  This post also uses facts to back it up. Kudos to you Cudweeds!

Here is an excerpt to get you interested:

……..This movement would like us to believe their agenda is a Civil Rights issue.  Many buy into this because they are uneducated about what Civil Rights really mean.

According to the Supreme Court, three things must happen to qualify a class for Civil Rights protection.

1)    History of discrimination evidenced by a lack of ability to obtain economic mean income, adequate education or cultural opportunity.  Evidence shows us this is clearly not the case. What do the facts say?

a.     Homosexuals have an average annual income of $55,430, over $20,000 more than the general populous.

b.     More than 3 times as many homosexuals as average Americans are college graduates.c.      3 times as many homosexuals as average Americans hold professional or managerial positions

2)    Protected classes should exhibit obvious, immutable or distinguishing characteristics, like race, color, gender, that define them as a discrete group.  This is obviously not the case with homosexuals.

3)    Protected classes should clearly demonstrate political powerlessness.  All we have to do is watch the news or view the current debates in the halls of Congress to find this criteria is not met either.

It is clear that none of this criterion is met!  So what then do we find to be the truth if we peer beyond this smoke screen?  The issue is really one of the attempt to legitimize and normalizing their BEHAVIOR through public law! ……..

    Either I am a raving, angry, lunatic activist who is insane enough to be UN-ashamed and UN-apologetic as I demand civil marriage equality – OR – I am a man who simply knows I deserve equality.

    I AM equal. I know it.

    Be adults. I cannot hold all of your hands as you grapple with your phobias, fears, and obsessions. We exist. Deal.

    Gay Tax Protest – until we are EQUAL.
