[QUOTE=Warfish;2919078]With respect, I disagree.
Untill proven otherwise, homosexuallity is a choice. And IMO you CAN and SHOULD be permitted to descriminate against someone for a CHOICE.
I don't personally, and I support their desire for equal rights, personally. But I also rsupport the right of the individual to freedom of thought and action, the right to to descriminate against them for choosing a lifestyle they believe is deviant. Tolerance does not =/= forced acceptance of a choice IMO.
No African American ever had a choice. Gays do. Well, they do right up till the second someone somewhere proves, scientificly, that it's NOT a choice.[/QUOTE]
First, by your definition and same logic towards choice, religious discrimination should be tolerated by law and the government. Second, choice or genetics have nothing to do with anything. Governmental discrimination against someone based on sexual orientation is most certainly a civil rights issue by any theological or legal definition out there.
