Forcing ones morals on others

I had a conversation about Prop 8 on Friday night and what has happened since the election.  We discussed what the “tolerant,” no on prop 8 crowd has done since Tuesday’s loss.  But it also involved talking about what our founding fathers meant when they originally set up the constitution.  This was because one of the people that was involved in the discussion is a historian by trade.  He brought up some very interesting points.  The constitution is actually meant to protect minorities.

We all seemed to agree that the LGBT is seeking social acceptance of their lifestyle.  The historian asked, “so is it OK to force our morals on someone else?”  Meaning is it OK for those who think sex should only be something shared between heterosexual couples and force that belief on others?  Humm.  Here is the point that has stuck out with me.  But isn’t the LGBT trying to force their morals on the rest of the United States?  So one or the other group is going to have to accept the others moral code.  For whatever reason I find this to be a profound thought that I have continued to mull over.  I am sure I will continue to do so.
