I don't want that lifestyle, etc. promoted to or in front of my kids. No one has "the Right" to force it into my Family Space.

Your "family space" is your individual and personally constructed boundary. How it is up to the government (or anyone else) to "protect it" from intrusion. We've basically come back around the idea that some particular Religion or set of "cultural norms" must be adopted by the government to protect your PERSONAL FEELINGS! Life, Liberty and the PURSUIT of happiness. NOT guaranteed happiness. NOT freedom from feeling offended or uncomfortable.

Sorry, but the same ideals and rights that ALLOW FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM also allow for for FREEDOM OF [whatever sin]. Suck it up and live with it. Equal protection under the law works both ways.

Both sides MUST RELINQUISH SOME GROUND HERE! The social conservatives must accept that freedom of religion also provides for freedom of men holding hands on the streets. "Eww that's gross!" BFD! The social liberals must likewise realize that "freedom of religion" doesn't mean "freedom from religion". "Sob, sob there's no holiday for Zoroastrianism, I'm offended." BFD!

It's all selfishness.

(BTW, I can TOTALLY UNDERSTAND not wanting your tax money to contribute to those things you don't agree with. But, that is a different topic...)
