I just wanted to put a blog out there that says I believe in marriage equality. I’m heterosexual but the reason I care is because I think any injustice towards a group of human beings is wrong. I’m basically not a bigot. I don’t planned on getting married, maybe that will change someday, but as of right now, I see it as something people don’t really care about. Divorce rates and all. The other big reason is I believe it is in people’s nature to change. I may marry someone, and in 10 years they’re a different person. If you can grow and evolve with that person, great, but I don’t want to risk it. Could I see myself having a partner for 20 odd years, yeah. Anyway, I don’t believe in it, but I would NEVER tell someone they couldn’t do it.
Now for the arguments against gay marriage.
“It will destroy the moral fabric of America!”
Have you looked around? Do you see the people wearing the American Flag as a bikini? That’s literally destroying American fabric (most likely made in china). Plus the gay culture has been going strong since the hay-day of Will and Grace! That was a long time ago. I think the moral fabric is just as strong as it used to be.
“They will force my church to perform gay marriages.”
My little cousin said this one to me. People believe this. You can’t do that. Keep your church out of my government, and my government out of my church. The Catholic church, for example, won’t marry people that aren’t Catholic. You can’t force them to. Gays will get married in their own churches or any church that allows it. So calm down.
“It’s Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.”
Not really an argument, but I think it is a funny sign. The bible is a magical book that not everyone believes in. Since, we keep religion out of government, the bible is not a reference source. All arguments from it are null and void. As well as argument from the Torah, the Koran, and any other religious text.
“Think the of children!”
There is no study proving children raised by a gay couple verses a straight one are any different. There is actually a book out by a kid who was raised by two moms that is suppose to be really good. He actually just talks about how his childhood was just as normal as any other kid.
What are the other arguments? Once you take out the bible and religious arguments, there really aren’t many left.
My main point is, stop hating people you don’t know. If you don’t like gay marriage, go marry someone of the opposite sex and, unfortunately, teach your own children to be bigots and when one is gay, I guess disown them. It’s your own choice, because that is the beauty of America, we can make our own choices. Even if they’re dumb.
