I support same sex marriages. I know by stating such I open the floodgates of idiocracy by those who think they know something. However, this nonsense of one person’s sense of morality taking precedence over another’s choice of lifestyle has become absurd.
1) The meaning of marriage has changed. It’s no longer what fundamentalists feel it is, but rather a tax status. Marriage for some has nothing to do with uniting two people in the eyes of some god, unless you worship Uncle Sam. Allowing people to publicly announce their relationship together in no way affects or stains anyone else, nor does it reflect badly on any contrived institution; it does not make your marriage less valuable. They are doing nothing that hurts anyone else but themselves, so there is no legal ground to stand on.
2) The bible isn’t the foundation of this country. The myth of freedom demands that homosexuals be allowed to do as they wish. Haters, in return, are not placed into position to accept this. You are free to hate as much as your little black heart is content. However, your rights end just as theirs does. There is no moral ground to stand on once you venture outside of your territory and into someone else’s; their morality then reigns just as yours does in your life.
3) Sex is more recreation than procreation. No arguments will be entertained from hypocrites concerning biological mandates or creation myths.
4) Maybe the terminology is to blame. Why not call them civil unions? But here’s another thing I don’t support. The bible specifically condemns homosexuality. It is beyond me why homosexuals want to get married within such an organization. The reason they give is that Christianity is their faith. If that is so, a major reconciliation of philosophy is in order! The options are A) Go to the justice of the peace to get your license and have some ceremony of your own or other religion that doesn’t frown upon it. 2) Start a gay church where some passages of the bible are overlooked or justified away as human error, and get married there. Whichever option you choose, don’t expect the world to accommodate you into their morality; you have no rights there just like they don’t in yours.
