And this is why I will continue to support Google. Plus their services are really good.
Those who oppose marriage equality like to say that same sex marriages will ruin the sanctity of marriage, or that those who support it are trying to destroy traditional marriage. When backed into a corner and pushed to explain this line of reasoning, the inevitable, “The Bible defines marriage as one man and woman” argument gets thrown out. The will to please an unseen and unproven deity takes priority over the happiness and rights of living breathing human beings. It is an appalling stance and completely inexcusable.
How dare anyone stand in judgment of the relationships of others? I’ve shared before that I’m not fond of memes that show some failed celebrity marriage then compares it with a gay couple who can’t get married. I get the point they’re supposed to make, but I think no one’s marriage, be it for profit, convenience, or love should be the business of anyone else if they’ve entered into it of their own free will. Everyone should be allowed to marry the person of their choosing, for their own reasons, regardless of what others think. Ultimately it’s their relationship, gay or straight. When we start thinking of it as marriage, not gay or straight marriage, we may be able to stop supporting laws that leads to the kind of pain in this video.
I will never take for granted the fact that I’m able to marry freely. I’ll also never forget that many of my LGBT friends who are married, would be shut out of their loved ones life if they experienced a tragedy because their state does not legally recognize their union. This makes me unspeakably sad as some of these relationships have outlived many heterosexual marriages.
I did find my good news today; Obama supports gay marriage. However that’s not really all that comforting to me as states will continue to do what they want.
