It's a religious rule that for one season, Catholics don't eat meat on Fridays. Some people think it's wrong to do so, immoral even because it goes against what God wants. Which is fine and dandy, but there's no LAWS enforcing that. Furthermore, I think there's very few acceptable times (and that it's not entirely acceptable to society as well) to discriminate against people of other religions.
Ultimately, like religion, even if my sexuality were a choice (it isn't for me, but I think it's arrogant of me to say that it isn't for anyone), it's a choice I should be allowed to make.
You are allowed to make such a choice (theoretically). Why aren't people allowed to respond to it as they see fit?
