I've been in favor of allowing people who are gay or lesbian to marry for a long time. I understand that some folks feel differently, I guess...but I can't fathom why. I mean, I know people have their alleged "religious reasons" and crap like that. Yes, I just called "religious reasons" crap. Because I don't think God would be so judgey as these so-called religious folks are...so why should any of us be super judgey then? Aren't we supposed to be all about not casting stones? Who is so morally superior that they can pretend to know that God would do/say/think?
Anyway. I have friends and coworkers who are gay and lesbian, and some of them are in some of the most beautiful, loving, and inspiring relationships I have ever witnessed. EVER. Why should me and Mr. Polar Bear, who are sometimes snippy, prone to arguing, and most certainly not any better or more worthy than any other couple (gay or straight), be allowed to legally marry when others are not - just because they love the "wrong" person?
Ridiculous. Really freaking ridiculous.
I'm glad California is finally heading in the right direction again, and I hope other states follow soon. I know here in North Carolina, we tend to be a little bit behind, being all up in the Bible Belt and mostly conservative. But I'll do my part to make gay marriage legal here and in the United States.
