Of course, I’m already convinced that I shouldn’t have to do what this young man did.

Those who compare gender and race discrimination with sexual orientation are using tactical deception to emotionally sway an unsuspecting public. More troubling, they do a disservice to people who long for freedom from the bondage of homosexual behavior. Wrongful discrimination (in actual civil rights cases) injures people for what they are by nature not for their sexual preferences. We have laws to protect human rights for all people. If homosexuals want same-sex-lifestyles, they shouldn’t demand special laws to protect their sexual preferences. If we start protecting sexual preferences from discrimination, where will it end? On what basis will we decide that some sexual preferences should be endorsed and defended by the state and others rejected?
The flawed logic serving the battle for gay rights works off of the assumption that one is born gay and cannot change. But ask those who once practiced the homosexual lifestyle but are now free from it what they think of this argument? Although some are possibly biologically inclined toward homosexual behavior and others had it forced on them against their wills, ultimately it becomes a chosen behavior. Any other view disrespects human dignity. Two men could live together and deeply care for each other without being homosexual. Homosexuality only becomes part of the equation when they commit sexual acts with each other. As a result, homosexual refers not to one’s nature, disposition or desire but to one’s behavior.
After many years of counseling others, I am convinced that those who practice homosexuality do not genuinely accept that they were meant to live the gay lifestyle. Even radical homosexual activists, if honest, would admit that their fight for gay rights is not the answer for their inner frustrations, resentments and despair. Deep inside, they know that changes in legislation or public opinion will not remove the agony they feel. The homosexual lifestyle robs people of both dignity and freedom. Court decisions and marriage licenses will not give these people the dignity or freedom they desire.
Will legalized Gay Marriage threaten Liberty?

Your comment got caught in WordPress’ spam filter. I could have left it there, but I wanted to say that to assume anybody’s inner emotional life is something that most people will interpret as arrogance, and this makes your argument much less agreeable to people that are on the fence.
