I feel like we're going backwards with this conversation.
If you don't pass a driver's test, you can't get a license to drive. You don't get a license because you're a danger to other people on the road. It's not discrimination against people who can't drive.
The high occupancy lanes were built as a way to alleviate traffic, get more cars off the road, and help with pollution. It's not discrimination against people who don't carpool. It's a way to help society as a whole.
Not allowing gays to marry each other has no bearing on anyone else. It does not hurt others, we're not protecting anyone by not allowing it. It's done because we feel marrying someone is a "straight thing." That's discrimination.
Who are you to decide that it "has no bearing on anybody else"? Many people have extremely strong and deeply felt opposition to the concept of gay marriage. Why do you insist that it "does not hurt others"?
America has become a bizarre touchy-feely over-sensitive society where we HAVE to cater to the wants and alleged needs of special interest groups, such as gays. Yet apparently it's OK to completely disregard the deeply felt beliefs and feelings of those who oppose the agenda of the liberals.
Hypocrisy of the left at it's finest.
