I try to keep my blog upbeat and fun. I seldom venture into political territory, if ever. I come from the mindset that you do not discuss politics or religion.
However, something has weighed on my mind for quite some time now, gay marriage. There isn't much that can be said on the topic, that hasn't already been said before. However, I feel as though it would be an injustice to myself, if I didn't speak from my heart (for fear of offending someone).
Most people have a problem with gay marriage, because of their religious faith and beliefs.
Most law-makers site their religions beliefs, as their reason for denying gays the right to a happily ever after. Though, I find it hard to believe that most politicians care. I find it hard to believe, that politicians mind what someone else is doing in the privacy of their own home. They do NOT care. Trust me, they do not! What they do care about (are you ready for this), votes. Do not act shocked. Politicians will do whatever it takes (including denying people rights) to become reelected. So, they lie, and say that by giving gays the right to marriage, it will ruin the sanctity of marriage. When in reality, we all know that the "sanctity of marriage" was ruined ages ago.
Excuse me, was I naive to believe that our country had a law in place called, "Separation of Church and State."
People say being gay is a sin. If it is, indeed a sin, then wouldn't that be between God and those individuals committing the said "sin"? Perhaps we could all be reminded of Luke 3:67:
"Judge not, and you will not be judged' condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive and you will be forgiven"
Everyone is entitled to the pursuit of happiness, as stated in The Declaration of Independence. No where in the document does it say: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness (unless you are gay)."
