WHY CAN’T GAYS MARRY?
WHY CAN’T GAYS MARRY?
A Cranky Opinion Saturday Post
Opposing views are welcome, but no name calling please, and that means YOU, you big stupid head!
Yes I am in favor of some form of gun regulation; that falls under protection of the citizens. Trust me I am a conservative. I do not think I have ever voted for a Democrat except maybe in an occasional local election. So how do I stand on Gay Marriage?
When possible, government should stay out of our lives.
Do I feel I need protection from Gay people? No, I’m good, and if they are a threat, why would their being married change anything?
Would allowing Gays to marry ruin our roads? I don’t think so.
What about Gay marriage and mail delivery? It couldn’t hurt.
If Gays could marry, how would it effect my life…? I don’t see how it would. Government should step away; Gay marriage should be legal and recognized.
I understand, “The Bible says Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.” That is very clever. If you believe that, then you should worship at a church that does not recognize Gay Marriage. It is your religious right to believe Gays should not marry. It is not your right to force this religious point of view on others.
Some religions will not recognize second marriages. Divorced people cannot marry in their church. Government recognizes divorce and second marriages. What is the difference?
It is a simple matter of separation of Church and State in the exact way the founders meant it to be. Government should not judge religion; religion should not force rules on government.
If you do not recognize Gay marriage (call it legal state recognized union of two individuals if it makes you happy, it is still marriage) you might as well pass a law making homosexual behavior illegal. You can, it has been done, it does not change people’s behavior. I am left handed. Some religious teaching used to say that was a sign of the devil. They tied children’s left hands and forced them to use their right hand. This resulted in people with screwed up minds and horrible hand writing.
Let Gay people marry. Let them have all the rights of heterosexuals. Let them go through painful expensive divorces. Let them live the way God apparently intended. God made Gay people. God doesn’t make mistakes; we just do not always understand his creations.
It’s funny that often the same people who want Government to get out of our lives when it comes to owning guns, want Government to regulate Gay people’s relationships.
As Adam says, “You can take Steve from me when you pry him from my cold dead fingers.”
I don’t understand homosexuality. I also don’t understand calculus, but I know it exists, and neither threaten me.
The preceding has been the opinion of a Cranky Old Man and not necessarily that of management…Mrs. Cranky
