Gay Marriage

After the Chick-Fil-A fiasco, gay marriage has become a hot button issue…again.  Is this honestly a REAL issue?  I mean come on people, gay marriage?!

To the so-called “gay rights supporters”:
Do you really believe that this gay marriage issue can be even remotely equated to minority rights prior to the 60’s?  Nobody is being persecuted or excluded for their sexuality.  And why exactly do you need the government to recognize your marriage anyways?  Since when is marriage about the government piece of paper that gives you tax breaks and such?  I always thought marriage was simply about your commitment to another individual; that’s what it is for me anyways.  Nobody is stopping you from getting married, nobody is stopping you from having a wedding.  Go out and have a wedding, proclaim your love and commitment for one another in front of your friends and family and live out that commitment for the rest of your lives.  That is a marriage and it would be the biggest slap in the face to all those “homophobic bigots”.

And to the so-called “traditional marriage supporters”:

Why do you care so much?  What is it hurting you?  What is more important, imposing your beliefs on other people, or liberty?  Liberty is not a one way street, if you want people to respect yours, then you must also respect theirs, otherwise, yours will also be taken away.  What if Muslims were the majority religion in this country?  Would you like it if Sharia law was forced upon you?  I didn’t think so.  You have every right in the world to say what you want about anything you want no matter who it offends, without fear of punishment according to law, however, you do not have the right to enforce those beliefs on others.

STOP WITH THE NON-ISSUES!  BE FREE AND LET OTHERS BE FREE!

  1. so, nobody is being excluded for their sexuality?

    So, when a gay couple can’t get that government piece of paper, that isn’t exclusion because of their sexuality? The point is that they cannot have that paper and the legal rights attached to it. That’s discrimination.

    Also, there are many stories about abuse and persecution towards people for all sorts of differences with their sexuality. Those with the privilege of being heterosexual can live their lives without seeing it directly, but it is real.

    This is a real civil rights issue. Whether or not it is as serious an issue as the race issue was in the 1960’s is irrelevant; is it an issue which should be fought for?

    Yes. We should have done so in the 1960’s, but we are forced to keep fighting.

    • It’s news to me that it’s perfectly legal to beat an lgbt person.

      And again, there is absolutely no reason that you need that piece of paper. It helps you in no way, and nobody’s marriage should ever be based on that piece of paper.

      • What?

        assault on lgbt people happens. It’s not legal, but it actually does happen. But beatings is not the only thing that happens. The law excludes people based on their sexuality, as I described above.

        No reason to need that piece of paper? Well, what about hospital visitation, end of life decisions, parental rights, etc which are tied to that piece of paper? The piece of paper does not change the nature of the relationship per se, but it has legal consequences tied to rights.

        And even if the piece of paper did do nothing, it is still discrimination to say that you can’t get one because of your sexuality.

      • So then like I said, end government involvement in ALL marriage. It’s really quite simple.
