The Queen Of Sheba

"Homosexuals were on their strongest ground when they argued that what happens between consenting adults is nobody else's business. Now they want to make it everybody's business by requiring others to acquiesce in their unions, both in law and in social practice. ... When they are simply 'consenting adults,' they can consent on whatever terms they choose to work out between themselves. It is nobody else's business and should not be the law's business.

"If (homosexuals) choose to consider themselves married, that is wholly different from saying that a whole elaborate body of laws, policies and traditions – which evolved from the experiences of innumerable generations of male and female union – should automatically apply to their very different circumstances. You can call yourself anything you want, including the queen of Sheba, but that does not give you the right to force other people to call you the queen of Sheba."

— Thomas Sowell
