Now, the gay couple could have gone to any one of a thousand B&Bs for their "wedding". There are B&Bs out there for the express purpose of accommodating gay sex and everything non-heterosexual. They could take their pick. But this is not about equality. If that were the case, they would push to end all restrictions on marriage for any reason. They don't. They have very clear ideas about who can and can't be married. Just like all people throughout history.
Nor is it about tolerance or diversity. Hardly. Like most things associated with the Left, it is the opposite. It is about demanding conformity and obedience under threat of retribution. Just like the bakeries and photography studios who have fallen victim to the Leftist juggernaut, these places are sought after in order to make a public demonstration. Even if they aren't deliberately picked, the couple could have - in the name of diversity and tolerance - simply shrugged, walked away, and found another place that would host them.
But seizing on the disproportionately high level of problems inherent to the non-heterosexual community that nobody ever seems to want to talk about, the couple is joined by the Leftist thought police in using the strong arm of the government to mandate conformity to legislated morality. A very liberal thing to do, right?
No. But a portent of things to come. Because the Left has at its back so many informational industries, it can keep those who disagree with this off balance. After all, would they support the B&B not hosting a black couple? A Jewish couple? A Christian couple? And what can we say? As soon as we accepted the premises of the Left, that being gay is something beyond anyone's control, we lost the battle. And whether we can reverse the clock and regain the idea that humans aren't just evolved animals who are slaves to their DNA remains to be seen.
But as of now, another victory for the coming tyranny. And another defeat for those who would resist the loss of freedoms and liberties that so many sacrificed so much over so many centuries to give us.
