We were watching the news this evening, Friday November 30th, and there was a news story about Gay Marriage going before the Supreme Court. The reporter interviewed some person who mentioned the constitutionality of Gay Marriage. So let me ask you this: Where in the Constitution of the United States of America does it say anything about marriage? And, why should it?
The definition of marriage is a union between two people. Plain and simple. There are vows that the folks getting married make to each other in front of God and family and friends. These are people in love who vow to love, honor and cherish each other, in front of God and their families and friends. Doesn’t God love all that he/she created?
Do you honestly think that the founders of this country took marriage into consideration? What do you mean that this was not foremost in their minds? What? They were more concerned with taxation, freedom, the right to free speech, and more…basic rights that they felt this country needed. Are you kidding me? Shouldn’t marriage have been the first thing that they had on their list of things to do when creating the Constitution?
This country is made up of a diverse group of people. Each has their own culture, history, and mores. As we allow for all this diversity, I have to ask: Why not allow for one more? We are OK with this. What goes on within the confines of ones home regarding their sexual preferences is none of our business, nor that of anyone else. Would you allow someone, including the government come to into your home to tell you how you have to live your life? That was not why this country came into being. If we allow this to come into the bedrooms of our homes, then be prepared: Government will have the open door then to enter your bathroom and tell you what kind of toilet paper you need to wipe your butt with!
Let’s take a look at some of those folks of today who are against Gay Marriage. I ask that you take a look at this listing posted on Ranker.com. The folks on this list, and their anti-gay sentiments are a matter of record. And their actions are too. Here is the list of the Top 10 Anti-Gay Activists: Do As We Say, Not As We Do! If you stopped to read these accounts, well…hmm, they are a bit two faced maybe?
My husband and I (do you know if we are male and female, or male and male, or female and female? And, does it really matter?) are both of the belief that not only are Gay people taxpayers, but they are members of our society, combined and individually from which this society does benefit. Government should be more worried about the “Fiscal-Cliff,” overspending, and budget deficits, to name a few, then to worry about what Jack and John, or Betty and Mary are doing in their bedrooms at night!
