Ok. What the hell is wrong with everybody? Are people still upset about gay marriage in the United States? Seriously?
As the years have gone by and certain states have legalized gay marriage, the rest of the country has trembled in fear at the implications that it will have on "The Sanctity of Marriage". Sanctity of Marriage? Really?
Have you looked at the statistics on marriage? I mean, really looked at them? Half of the straight people who get married, get divorced. Half the straight couples who live together, aren't even married. Those that are, are always bickering and bitching about their significant other. They use their kids as pawns in bitter divorces, and even the family dog has to deal with the brunt of a dysfunctional American marriage. Sometimes, they even go as far at to murder one another. No one likes their in-laws, and children are a pain in the rear. It's pretty much established, that straight folks don't care much for marriage.
And that's why gay folks should get married. If anyone's going to appreciate the concept and institution of these unions, it will be them. They fought for the right to be married. They've taken media backlash for it, they've been beaten, spat upon, ridiculed. But still, they persevere, and want to marry their significant other. They're not standing on the altar with a shot-gun to their head, they're fighting through crowds of angry protesters and religious fanatics in order to marry someone they love.
That's how important it is to them.
"But the bible says marriage is between a man and woman." Again with the bible, huh? 1)The bible has been manipulated by man from its inception, even if you consider it the word of god, man has way too much an influence on it, tweaking it, for their own political and religious game.
2) Religion is a personal choice. Not law. Your religious views may not be the same as another. You don't have the right to impose your religious views on other people. That's kinda why America was founded. Religious freedom. Remember that?
3) Free will. If God gave us all free will to do what we want, then what's the flipping problem? Gay folks wanna get married on their own free will! Now you're just contradicting God by trying to stop people from doing what they want. And...I don't know how you're gonna deal with that.
4) If you think that it's God's will that marriage is only between a man and woman, then why not let God sort them out during the rapture? Y'know? Where's that religious faith we all hear so much about? If you truly have faith in God, you should know that he/she/it in his/her/it all-knowing wisdom will do what needs to be done. So don't worry yourself about it. And do note, that I'm not trying to offend anyone. Maybe Foamy the Squirrel is, because that's what all of this is based on.
So, with all this being said, as gay marriage comes into your cities and states, don't sweat it. It's not a big deal. Let them get married!
And, if you agree to this, spread the word on this! Repost this everywhere you can, in hopes that someone high up in the government and such will see this, and consider legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states. Also, keep supporting the gays, because I have a feeling that gay marriage will be legalized pretty soon. Maybe in the next 5-10 years...
OH! And this is all from Foamy the Squirrel's rant on Gay Marriage. I just decided to reword it so it would offend anyone.
Thank ya for reading!
