Greetings again everyone!
I would like your thoughts on the topic of gay marriage.
Should gay couples have the right to be lawfully married?
I personally take no issue with gay marriage. My personal opinion is that gay marriage embraces the concept of freedom that America was founded upon.
I also think it speaks volumes about America's changing social structure. This change I view as positive. It embraces peace, freedom, love and tolerance. It also helps to develop continuing multicultural diversity within our nation in a positive manner.

Oh wow, I could go on for days about this. Let's just try to get it out quick. I do think that gay marriage should be legalized and with all the same benefits and downfalls of straight marriage. Nothing should differ legally.
Marriage is about law. And law is suppose to be religion free. A school teacher got fired from his job for having a Bible on his desk. The pledge of allegiance, by law, had to take "under god" out of it, these examples show how strict the law is against bringing religion into it. However, the only argument people seem to be able to come up with for being against it is their religion. Does that make any sense? We are banning something that is SO important to so many people because of religion, when the law is suppose to have nothing to do with religion, it's suppose to be about rights. And we are taking away the rights of all those people because they were born gay.
Now for the "it's in the Bible," comment that people love to throw around. The Bible was written and re-written and translated into other languages countless times, starting YEARS before anyone alive could even ask their oldest relatives about. And it was a long ass time before it even started getting written down that most of the events of it even happened. Now here are several different debates out on the Bible, for one, they believe there is a lost section of it, a section that was never put it, either because the "editors didn't want it, or because it was just forgotten, so who knows what may have been in that section. Also, the stories that were told could have very easily have been misinterpreted when written down (like did you ever play telephone as a kid? By the time it got back to you it wasn't at all what you said to start with). And then there are believers that the "editors" of the Bible, the ones that finally wrote it down, wrote it down and made it into what they believed so that when people read it they would take on their beliefs without question.
Now, to my final point, since I'm already getting way longer than I intended. If god was SO against gay people, and God creates everything on earth.Do you see where I'm going? Why in the world would he make people gay? And don't try to say that they choose to be gay. At some point in their lives they may have to choose to accept it and/or to come out with it. But they, just like us, did not choose it, they can't help that they are attracted to the same sex rather than the opposite sex. Almost all of my gay friends tried so hard to be straight so that they were "normal." I thank god that most of them have finally just admitted it, because they are finally happy with themselves, even though they have to deal with ignorant people teasing them at times, they are finally trully happy.
Sorry that was WAY longer than I meant it to be.16
