Then don't try to take away someone else's.The above was posted on my Face Book Wall by a friend and below is my answer to the post.
I do not like or think that it is right for two people of the same sex to get married. But homosexuals have rights. The same basic rights as everybody else, no more and no less. The problem is they want more rights. Special laws to protect them and other laws that do not even make sense. They even want their own Bible. Most Christians, like myself do not hate or dislike the homosexual person, it is the sin that we hate. We are to love the person but hate the sin. It is wrong and people need to hear it. If you believe in what the Bible says, then it is wrong, very wrong, because the Bible tells us so. If a person want to be a homosexual then they can face God's judgement, but in the mean time, do not expect no more rights than anybody else has. Homosexuals are not special because of their life style. The same rule of law should be applied to everybody equally. And the last time that I checked they had the same rights as other Americans!
People also have a right to smoke cigarettes, but they do not have the right to injure other peoples health when they do it. I have people who are my friends and they will not smoke around me because of my breathing. There are people all over this country the same way that I am. I do my best to not go to places where I know there is a lot of cigarette smoke and people who smoke should be just as courteous. We all have choices, But it is their right to smoke. They should choose to smoke where they do not bother other people who have health problems or do not like it because as Americans they have rights also and we all have choices.
What is there not to like about sex? God ordained it Himself! The problem is that sex should be between a man and a women and then only if they are married. There again if a person is having sex outside of marriage they have their rights! I call it choices. To live by God's Standards or to live in a live of sin. Yes we have rights, but there is also a payday coming.
Drugs are one of the biggest causes that is destroying this country. Thousands of over doses and deaths a year. Thousands of murders a year, Thousands of robberies and assaults a year and most all of them drug related. Millions of dollars a year are coming across our borders a year in drugs and the violence with it. Did you ever stop to think of how much money in taxes go to preventing the drug problem and the treatment of drug addicts that could be going for something else? When it comes to drugs the only rights we have is to stop it so that our children and their children will not be hooked on it!
Being a police officer for many years I can tell you this about porn. It is deadly! Porn has ruined and destroyed many of home. It breeds and promotes desires that leads to Adultery, rape, murder, and many other things that are unnatural or against the law. Just one example is Ted Bundy. He killed over 20 women and that is only the ones we know about. He said and also claimed porn was the contributing factor that got him started and so it was with a lot of other serial killers! So porn lookers and the ones that are hooked on it, have their rights, but what about the rights of millions who have been raped, assaulted, and murdered by those that are hooked on porn?
It is any body's right to drink alcohol as long as it does not violate the rights of others. The sad fact it does and that is a fact! When I was a police officer I seem more injuries and deaths from alcohol than I ever want to see again in my life time. My brother was hit by a drunk driver and now is maimed for the rest of his life. There is not a day goes by that he is not in pain. So please tell me what his rights are. That drunk driver had a right to drink, but he also had a choice not to drive.
I own many guns and it is my right to own them. But I have a friend that does not like guns and that is his right. When he comes to my house I do not show him my guns or try to talk him into liking them. That is my choice!
Yes we, as Americans, have rights and these rights are the same for all people. Not some rights for this group and other rights for another
group. This nation is a Republic, in other words a nation of laws, and those laws are the same for all people. Our rights as Americans are governed by those laws. But on the other side of the coin we have choices. We can choose to do right, with our liberty and rights and bring America back to the greatness that she once was or we can take our rights far beyond what they were attended to be and destroy this country! And one last thought: None of this wouldl never happen if God is in our choices!
