Just to be clear about this..

Same-sex "marriage," an oxymoron which requires a conflation of apples and oranges in order to be credible as "civil rights issue," isn't one.

It is abortion, which denies the humanity of living members of our species and deprives them of life itself, that is the civil rights issue of our day.

Even the slaves got the law to acknowledge them as two-thirds of a human being.
