I don't have a problem with sexual orientation being a protected class as long as it is considered an inherent trait and not a chosen lifestyle. I am in the camp that thinks a person CAN be born gay so its fine for me to treat that trait as no different than race or color or country of origin. That being said I am totally against gay marriage rights but only because I am against SPECIAL govt involvement in marriage at all.
