Men are not a minority either. But same-sex marriage advocates claim minority status to align themselves with the civil rights movement.
From Huffington Post:
"It's sad to me that anyone would think that it's OK to put up the rights of a minority to a popular vote," said Lisa Polyak, chairwoman of the board of directors for the gay rights organization Equality Maryland. "We have children, we have lives, we have jobs and we just want to go about them with integrity."
The equality movement is trying to gain sympathy by focusing on the minority status of women and men in same-gender relationships. However, men are not a minority. Neither are women, unless you’re in a country with skewed demographics due to sex-selected abortion.
Many black pastors are not buying into the bigotry argument. Far from a civil right, they call same-sex marriage a “cultural war.” The civil rights movement was about integrating the races. Same-sex marriage is about segregating genders in marriage. Being in favor of pro-gender marriage does not mean people are bigots.
