Rights

Keep in mind something important about America that is true and must always be so:

The Constitution that affirms your legal right to live your chosen lifestyle also enshrines my right to voice my moral objections to it.

If you make it illegal for me to publicly criticize – on moral grounds – the way you live your life, you place the nation on a pathway directly to tyranny, and on the road to outlawing your lifestyle as well.

I promise to defend your legal right to live the way you wish. You must promise in return to defend my legal right to find moral fault with it. That is the bargain of democracy.
