Same sex marriage
By Tony Pollock
November 03, 2006
All men are created equal etc, I should not have to remind you
of the rest. Why should homosexuals be denied these basic human
rights as guaranteed in the declaration of independence. The
whole constitution is set up to achieve and guarantee them. Are
these any the less people?, Fellow human beings? Are you any
the less married because they seek to be so? Do they not love
each other? Do the principles of the constitution and human rights
somehow not apply to them? So you are offended! Wow. Under the
constution you have a right to be offended and they be offended
by you, it cuts both ways. They are "Wrong," are they?
and who decides what is right and wrong over this matter. Who
appointed you the arbiter of right and wrong for all mankind?
Only religious zealots use that excuse and since the United States
separates religion and politics then there is no justification
apart from plain bigotry and sexual racism and religious extremism
to justify your position to ban same sex marriage. How are you
harmed by others who wish to live their lives by another creed?
Especially when they seek you no harm, why do you wish to harm
Personally I abhore the idea of same sex marriage but I defend
to the death homosexual's right to be human and therefore worthy
of our respect for life and all the happiness they can find
and we, I, you, have no right to deny them that right. The only
thing I have against them is the hi jacking of the English language
which is my first love. Gay means happy and its use as a euphemism
for homosexual is to me, offensive in the extreme. Doesn't everyone
want a happy marriage?
J'Shua (That was his real name in case you didn''t know,")
The Christ did not say, "Love one another as I have loved
you," and then stick one finger in the air and add, "Except
for the queers." His love was inclusive for all who love
him and many homosexuals are also devout Christians. "Judge
not lest ye also be judged." Wasn't that also one of his
favourites. Let us live by the teachings of our messiah and practice
them in our lives and not just pay lip service to them by prating
prayers and then judging others. We should be Christians twenty
four/seven and not just on Sundays. Allow the Lord to make these
judgments, we have enough problems saving our own souls without
being so damned sanctimoneous.
