I feel that long and deeply held beliefs and traditions should be respected, and not just tossed to the curb on a whim.
The concept of same-sex marriage is relatively new with respect to how long human culture and human civilization has been around. In other words, it's a whim.
What part of that don't you understand? I'm not asking or expecting you to agree with it. I'm just curious to know why you are incapable of understanding why some people, such as myself, may feel that way.
Why are you demanding that others change their personal and deeply held beliefs to match yours?
