30 Day of Truth – Day 18December 8, 2010
Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.
Finally, an easy topic. LOL I don’t know that a lot of people would see it that way, but I do. I’m all for it. Get married. Be happy. Have medical decision-making rights. Have children and raise them in a (semi)traditional nuclear family. Enjoy all of the social and legal benefits that marriage has been providing for heterosexual couples. Gay marriage is kind of a non-issue for me, actually.
My views on gay marriage are actually more about straight marriage. It irks me to no end that people can say the sanctity of marriage is ruined if we allow “unnatural” couples to wed. These couples think it’s so important that they’re often willing to fight for it. On the other hand, we have our morally- and socially-correct hetero couples that get married and divorced before the ink on the wedding license has time to dry. I think it’s preposterous to punish people who want something for its value while rewarding, or at least condoning, the ridiculous behavior of those who do something because it’s expected or easy.
Okay, before this totally turns into a rant… I think that a couple of any nature should have the right to legally preserve their family through marriage.
