“What is Proposition 8?”
Okay, so I’m not gay, but I’ve kissed a girl and I liked it, and to me, all this hoopla about whether or not gay marriage is okay is just baffling to me. I can sum up my issue in two words:
Your religion is your business, not the government’s. Now, I realize that it might be difficult for people to swallow because a lot of people’s moral and ethical standards are dictated by their religion, and it becomes nearly impossible to separate the two, so I’ll simplify it for you:
If the law doesn’t affect you, then shut the hell up.
Legalizing gay marriage is not a “threat” to yours, what someone else believes is not a threat to your belief. You must be pretty insecure about your own convictions if you honestly think these things. It is not your responsibility (or your right or privilege) to proselytize people and shove your beliefs down their throats. The government doesn’t interfere with your right to practice your religion, or exclude people from it, or think that the gay lifestyle is “icky”, so stop being a hypocrite and trying to make this a religious issue. It’s not. It’s a human rights issue. And allowing two same-sex people to legally marry is a threat to no one. It doesn’t hurt anyone, and it doesn’t violate anyone’s rights, so you have no right to deny them.
If you don’t agree with gay marriage, don’t get gay married. Simple! That’s it! End of story! We can all go home and mind our own business now!
And to you ignorant folks that say polygamy and inter-species marriage is next: grow up. You’re grasping at thin air, and you know it. And if you honestly do think that is a valid argument, get real. I don’t even know how to rationalize an explanation as to how stupid that is, it’s that stupid!
Prohibiting gay marriage and denying gay couples the rights of straight couples is wrong and unconstitutional. Period.
On a lighter note, check out the video that inspired today’s post, I think you’ll like it.
And if you don’t, I don’t care, because your opinion is invalid. 😉
