Gay marriage has come up again in California. Here’s the story. If you don’t want to click on the link then don’t, I didn’t read too much of it either. It’s not like I’m a professional or something. Yep, that’s right – another poorly researched opinion-based rant on a random topic! Today, gay marriage.
I’m a fan. Sort of. I mean personally I don’t fully support it, not that I’m religious but I feel like marriage has become sort of a religious thing. Whatever. They can have their religious customs, I don’t care. Regardless, as stupid as this sounds, to me it comes down to location. If the Christians don’t want “marriage” to be with two guys then whatever, don’t get married in a church. Beaches are nice, it’s California, go to Santa Monica. Don’t have a priest do it. Once again, it’s California, there are plenty of gay guys that can perform a fabulous nonreligious marriage ceremony.
My big thing is equality under the law. If they want to get married then fine, get married. Take all religion out of it. Either way, if a guy wants to go visit his husband in the AIDs Ward of the hospital then fine, go ahead, they’re married. What do I care. Which brings me to my second big thing – how is it acceptable to take away the rights of others on moral grounds? Yeah, I don’t really like homosexuality either, I was raised Christian and I guess some of it sadly rubbed off on me, but who am I to say they can’t be equal in the eyes of the law to heterosexual couples? What kind of person is “strongly against” homosexual gay marriage? And why aren’t they just going, “Hey, this has nothing to do with me. Why do I care? Why am I burning this many calories trying to stop something that doesn’t affect me in the slightest?”
I don’t get it though, I hear marriage sucks anyways. Gay people should be happy they legally can’t do it.
By the way, if you disagree with me on this one go ahead and leave a comment and tell me why. I want to know. I admittedly know very little on this topic, it REALLY don’t concern me at all so I don’t follow it, I’m basically just talking out of my ass (no pun intended). If I’m completely wrong and you know more than me on this one then just make your case and if you’re not stupid I’ll listen.
