Shoplifting does hurt people though. The store has a loss which impacts a large number of people negatively.

shoplifting is a victimless crime, like punching someone in the dark

Shoplifting hurts the store owner, the manufacturers, the people BOTH employ, and the consumer, who have to pay higher prices to compensate for the stolen goods.

That failed attempt at a rebuttal aside, there's a difference between "I want that sweater" and "I want basic human rights." One is promised to us as citizens. Guess what. It's not the cute little sweater.

(Assuming this is about homosexuality)

Shoplifting infringes on another person's right to property. We have rights but we don't have any right to interfere with another person's.

If gay rights aren't really rights, than religious people's rights must not be either.

Well, shoplifting really only hurts big business, so I really don't care.

Allegory for Jesus

Are you seriously going to consider marriage not a right? Do you want to fucking go down that road and deal with the implications of it, or do you just to spout cliched, half-thought out drivel to use as an excuse to keep hating gay people? Why do I even ask, really?
