It is the slippery slope. This will never end. Even if RSS or the 'conservatives' agree to 'marriage', adoption, and other demands, the so-called 'liberals' will move on to some other such issue which is seen as controversial. Say, pedophilia. or something else. By nature of it, they seem to be attracted to issues like that and will keep raising them. There is no solution to it.
Frankly, there is no problem at all. This so-called criminalization hardly seems to be implemented in practice. The whole idea seems to be legitimization of such relationships. Once that is achieved, this brigade will move on to some other similar issue. Those who follow such people blindly will also follow them blindly. The 'liberal' thingy is never going to end. The more one gives in, the more such demands will come.
The major danger with such things is that a small but vocal and powerful minority hijacks the narrative and browbeats the majority into accepting their worldview by suppressing/demonizing the opponent viewpoint.
Another point is that lotus should be careful not to become a kongi version. Accepting GMO seeds or decriminalization of homosexuality ...etc seem to be agendas with global players and hopefully lotus will not succumb to such pressure. If they do, then eventually they will become a kongi version.
