Marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a women, or so its been said.
I'm not sure what all the uproar is about. I don't see gay people getting hitched as the biggest threat to the institution of marriage. That title goes to well... heterosexuals. They never stay married anymore do they? I'm sure some of the politicians going on about gay people are divorced and remarried themselves. I tend to think that gay people would treat their marriage as more precious, because they had been denied access for so long. Straight people treat marriage like the corner convenience store, always open and easy to get in and get out.
Git n Go.
What cheapens marriage is the legal and financial gains you get from being married. We want people to get married because they are going to stay together and love each other. So why give people OTHER reasons to get married that have nothing to do with those goals? The only reason that gay people WANT to be married is because they are being denied certain rights that can only be gained from marriage. Otherwise I would tell gay people to just avoid getting married. Have some ceremony where you exchange rainbow scarves or something and call it "forever".
This pandering to homophobes with a constitutional amendment is bad policy. Any time the government gets in the business of defending morality things just get all twisted and screwed up. If they're not hurting anyone then let them be. I think we should put "You stay outta my face, I stay outta yours" on the money instead of "In God we trust". Live and let live is our unofficial motto. And if churches don't want to marry gay people, so be it, that's their right as well.
I have a dream.. that we can just get past this whole gay people thing. Grow up people. They're here they're queer and they want to get married for God knows why...??
