On one of my favorite blogs, I read this disappointing claim:
What’s being decided in this case isn’t whether homosexuals have the right to marry; of course they do. (It may seem facile to point this out, but any homosexual of either sex has the same right to marry as anyone else, as long as they marry someone of the opposite sex.)
Jack has a deadly milk allergy: one touch of milk, and Jack goes into anaphylactic shock and dies. Unfortunately for Jack, he lives in a country, Lactosia, where everyone drinks only milk. Jack can imagine—and actively wants—drinks other than milk, preferably something totally milk-free so that he doesn't croak after the first swallow. He approaches his town's Trinkmeister, Wilfred, and asks for a Coke.
"Sorry, Jack," says Wilfred. "No Coke for you. Only milk. You know that's the law."
"I didn't choose to be born with this deadly allergy, Wilfred!" says Jack. "Don't you think it's a bit oppressive that I can never have a drink?"
"What? Who said you could never have a drink?" says Wilfred, sincerely nonplussed. "You have the same right to have a drink as everyone else, as long as you have milk."
