This should tell them that the majority of people DO NOT want to see this between 2 guys.

The people of CA voted to ban gay marriage, but it was only reversed because of legal maneuvering, the voters made their choice clear though....get over it.
My guess is that they did it because they WANTED to be kickecd out so they can cry about it in the media.

You're totally missing my point. You made a comment about the need to protect children by not allowing displays of immorality in public. What I'm trying to get at is who decides what the immorality is? Would you support the public shunning of something others found immoral, but you yourself didn't?

I take it if you and I were in a place together and I wanted a gay couple thrown for holding hands or sharing a kiss, you'd support me in my efforts to have them expelled. I'm asking if you and I were together and I wanted a a Christian thrown out because I found his displaying a cross to be exposing my children to a promotion of his immoral lifestyle, would you support my effort?

Who decides? The mall owner decides, and they base their decisions on the opinion of their customers. Majority of people find gay-acts like that unnatural, and immoral and it makes sense the mall owner would want provide an environment where they would not have to be witness to immoral acts.

Most peopel who are overly affectionate in public like the attention and it excites them to know other people are watching. Holding hands while you stroll? Fine. Continually kissing/making out tells me you want people to see you. Why? Usually because you can't get excited by your lover when you are alone and need to convince yourself while convincing others that you actually have a good relationship by "announcing" it publically. That's the simple explanation but it's true the majority of the time. Like when couples I know start posting mushy stuff to each other on FB...I know a relationship status change to "single" is eminent.

That said, anyone of any orientation who is making out in view of me is wrong to do so. Sorry,

Young people love PDA because they're new to the relationship thing. They like the idea of being in a relationship and everyone taking note of it. Has nothing to do with them not being excited about the other partner.

Anytime I go to the mall, the only people I see "making out" are young teenagers. When it's adults, something is a bit off. Either what you wrote or they don't have shame,etc.

So would you support me in protecting my children from being exposed to the immorality of the Christian lifestyle or not?

At a mall I would find it a bit strange to see anyone over 30 kissing.

However, if you eat out it's not that uncommon to see older adults share a kiss while out on a birthday or anniversary celebration dinner. And at least 3 times a week I see a co-worker and his wife kiss. She drives him to work, walks him in, they kiss goodbye, and she goes on her way.

I wonder what the prudes on this board who say PDAs are totally off limits think about those?

You'll have to support your own views as opposed to trying to pander everyone else to support them. No, I do not support your efforts to rub homosexuality in everyones faces, and I do not support your anti-Christian views.

Much to your chagrin, I'm sure, not recently. See Maine, Maryland and Minnesota. Regardless, we don't let the majority vote on the rights of the minority...

According to national polls, those who support gays are in the majority.

So in your world, majority rules, except when the vote for the candidate you dislike for president.

Got it.
