The Q Business Alliance based in Salt Lake City is establishing a fund to provide reward money to those who help put hate criminals behind bars. The effort is in response to a number of recent assaults in Utah that are thought to have been motivated by anti-gay sentiment. There have been three such assaults in the last two weeks.
This voluntary, cooperative effort serves as a shining example of how the free market can truly champion the rights of homosexuals. It seems counterproductive to seek government solutions to problems largely created by government. Policies restricting the peaceful activities and contracts sought by the LGBT movement have been the purview of the State, constantly shifting to meet the demands of the fastidious and oppressive majority.
Proponents of a free and voluntary society recognize that gay marriage is not an act of aggression; therefore, it cannot justifiably be met with the violent force of the State. Absent the tyrannical prohibition of such, any consenting adults would be able to enter into contracts with which all parties involved agree.
Homosexual advocates of a free and voluntary society also recognize the other side of the coin: that government is also unjustified in forcing individuals to perform such marriages, or forcing churches to provide their facilities and property for the use of such ceremonies, or forcing private adoption agencies to put children in the care of individuals they may not deem suitable. Voluntaryists recognize that government cannot justifiably prohibit you from engaging in sexual acts with consenting adults, no matter the gender, precisely because you own your body. No one else owns you. You are not a slave. So it is with other forms of ownership.
The more society is able to expel government from dictating the nature of our consensual relationships and transactions, the more free it will be. This is no less true of homosexuals than of any other individual, as we are all equal under the law.

Repeal Stupid Laws
Does your city have stupid laws on the books? It is amazing how sacred people consider the laws of the State to be until they consider the law absurd. You can help delegitimize the State by contacting us with information about the stupid laws in your city. We'll contact elected officials to urge them to repeal.
