With an ever-busy schedule and attempting a social life, blogging regularly is sometimes a chore. With a world of things happening, thoughts are as varied and scattered as whatever fake issue FOX News decides to blow up into a scandal. Therefore, in the spirit of brevity, I’ll be as concise as possible with the following:
Gay marriage is back in the news with backers of Proposition 8 in California trying to strike down the ruling that allowed lawfully-recognized same-sex unions because of the judge’s sexuality. (Brevity: negated.) There are several reasons why supporters of Prop. 8 and opponents of gay marriage are and will be ridiculous:
- Gay marriage protesters — the ones actively picketing and getting legislation to strike down same-sex marriages — are the equivalent of busybody neighbors, concerned that their neighbor’s son’s hair is getting too shaggy or that the minister’s daughter is rumored to enjoy a drink of alcohol. Like in these silly examples, the so-called problems do not concern the onlooker in the slightest.
- Those using the Bible as their argument crutch are more likely to pick and choose the parts of the Good Book to obey or interpret as they wish. If people believe that “man lying with a man“ is an abomination (or even more annoying, those that say “Doesn’t saying anything about woman lying with a woman — hur hur hur”), how about that whole lying thing being a sin? How about marriage being solely a Christian thang?
- The whole sanctity of marriage being a reason to deny gays the right to marry? BULLSHIT. There is no sanctity of marriage. Blame its disappearance on reality shows hawking phony unions, divorce, or more commonly, people marrying for selfish reasons unrelated to love and trust until death do you part.
