I found this article on allykatzz that I really like and maybe you guys would like to share your opinion on same-sex marriage in the comments. Here it is...
It's your wedding day, you have a beautiful dress on, all of your friends and family are very excited. Everyone is waiting for the ceremony to begin. Suddenly someone comes back to tell you that you can only get married if everyone votes on it. You think voting just means your family and friends, but no. The next county has to vote on it, the next state has to vote on it, the whole country has to vote on your marriage. Then they vote no.
How would you feel?
I know the first thought that would go through my mind is "Who gets to deciede who I get to marry?"
The people who voted against it, they know nothing about my parther and I, why should they get a say?
Well girls, that's what happens when people vote no on same sex marriage.
This is kind of reply to Kate's blog about how same-gender marriage is legal in New York now. Go them!<3
This is a very strong opinionated blog, so beware!
I am just another straight girl for LGBT rights. If you don't know, LGBT means, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transexual rights.
I am anxiously awaiting Arizona to become a rainbow state.
Why should same-gender marriage be legal?
My answer is because it's moraly right!
I know a lot of people disagree with me. You say that a girl kissing a girl is weird, same with boy and a boy. Well, a lot of things in life are weird. It's not all going to be like a story book.
We are all human. Love is love.
People argue that the Bible says that it is wrong. Well people do a lot of stuff that the Bible says is also wrong.
Leviticus 19:27 reads "You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard." That would make getting a bowl cut wrong in the same way, same sex couples are, and you don't see people protesting at barber shops.
Leviticus 11:8, which is discussing pigs, reads "You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you." Are you gals me you have never played football or watched a football game? Never eaten bacon or sausage? That's what a football is made of...pigskin...
Leviticus 19:19 reads, "You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together." Ever wear a polyester shirt? Or any fabric that wasn't 100% Cotton? The Bible says that's wrong too.
You think if the Bible says all of those things are wrong, more people would be protesting at JcPenny's for selling polyester shirts, or more people fighting the NFL for letting people touch pig carcasses...
People say that marriage should just be kept between a MAN and a WOMAN, Why?
50% of those are going to end in divorce. Oh! The Bible says that's wrong too.
Mark 10:11-12, "And He said to them, ‘Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her; and if she herself divorces her husband and marries another man, she is committing adultery.’"
And I just haven't seen that many people barging into court rooms to stop a divorce case..
Another arguement is that God would disapprove. Yet, a lot of people always preach that God loves everyone. When you love someone all you want is for them to be happy. And to a lot of same gender couples, marriage would make them happy.
So you say, I have no problem with gay people I just don't want them to get married. Why not? Is it really going to affect your day to day life that much? People get married every day, do you even take time to think about it? As you are driving down the road does a giant fish pop out and scream SOMEONE JUST GOT MARRIED?! No. That doesn't happen.
You aren't going to feel some current go through you each time a same gender couple gets married.
Don't like gay marriage? Well it's a good thing you don't have to get one.
Marriage makes a lot of people happy, why deprive them of that happiness
What do YOU think?
How much does a same-gender couple happiness effect you?
Did I change your opinion at all?
Your blogger who believes in HUMAN rights. Everyone deserves their shot at happiness.
PS Since LGBT is often considered a rainbow thing, I'm supporting a lot of my rainbow gear in the picture. (:
PSS If you are looking for an update on the Jill and Hank case, I don't know much. All I know is that Jill is pretty much grounded for life. Everyone is just so thankful they are home. I don't know why they ran away, or I would do a follow up blog.
