I heard Geraldo say on his show the other night that “Now is not the time” for Bush to bring up the ban on Gay Marriages, stating that the war in Iraq and high gas prices were two examples of why this is not the right time to bring up such a divisive issue. Geraldo stated, “I just don’t buy it” meaning this is nothing more than an attempt of Bush trying to shore up his support base before the elections.
I must ask Geraldo, just when is the time to bring up this issue? To me it is insane to start with; I can not believe this qualified to be a debate. I know, I know, go ahead and call me silly little names such as homophobe, right wing nut, Bible thumper, separatist, prejudice or any other tag you wish to place on me because I disagree with the sanctity of marriage be all inclusive instead of the traditional vows to God between a man and a woman.
You believe I should not have a right to voice my opposition to Gay Marriages. Well guess what? I do! That is my God given right as an American born citizen, and by God I stand on that right.
I am so sick of every television I turn on, every newspaper I pick up to read, every movie I go see, and every talk show I listen to telling me how gay people have rights and I should be ashamed of myself for not supporting their rights. It is a constant bombardment of homosexual propaganda being both spoon fed and shoved down my throat. Your attempts to brainwash me have no effect but to strengthen my resolve to voice my own opinion of my belief on the subject.
Get out of my face! I have my own belief system as you do yours.
Want to know what it is? I thought you did or else you wouldn’t still be reading this, so here it goes!
I believe the Bible to be the Holy Spirit inspired word of God. To me that means it is God’s instruction book to mankind on how to act and believe properly. Also included is how to not act. No, I am not going to preach to you. I am simply stating that the Bible is the Constitution (for lack of an easier word to understand) that I regard as the foundation of my belief system. Why? Because it has never been proven wrong in thousands of years and it is still continuing to prove correct all the time with the new findings of evidence. Find me another book completely accurate such as the Bible and we can debate it. But for now I will move on with my point.
God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. The only way to procreate is with a Man and a Woman. Two men can not breed; two women can not breed together. Simple, there is no reason for a man and a man or a woman and a woman to marry. The reason I believe gay’s desire to be allowed to legally marry is to create a sense of acceptance from all others.
Most important to me is this, where will this end should gay marriage be allowed under law? What next? A man and a Goat should be allowed to marry? A woman should be allowed to marry a Donkey?
You say but they love each other, they can not help their sexual orientation, they were born that way! Okay, then who is to stop a man who is sexually orientated towards small children from marrying one? He or She can give the same reasons for marriage if a legal precedent is set in law for gay marriage.
You see my point is this. It dissolves the sanctity of marriage. If this is allowed marriage will mean nothing anymore, it will become a ritual equal to a circus sideshow. And if it is made into law there will be nothing to stop it from becoming anything less than a circus sideshow.
Personally, gay people or people who are gay do not bother me. I could not care less what anyone else does behind closed doors with their friends of choice as long as it is legal and consenting, and it does not involve children. Really, I do not care. I do not look at them mean, roll my eyes at them or make any comment to them about my belief unless they want to know. Nor do I judge them to hell or look down on them. I know many gay people and I treat them as anyone else. If you want to be gay, be gay, but do not try to shove your sexual orientation down my throat or try to change my mind and heart to fit your own sexual desires. I do not do you that way, so show some respect and afford me the same courtesy.
I can not believe that in this day and time that the Brokeback Senate could not stand up and vote for the ban on gay marriage out of fear of being labeled insensitive or homophobe. Those who could not vote for the ban who are not gay themselves are weak spineless souls that will trade off every American Tradition out of fear of losing their public office. What a complete disgrace to all the founders of the United States Constitution, all the great forefathers of this great nation. Surely they roll over in their graves in pure disgust!
For those that are left with some backbone I stand and applaud you!
Let the people of this great nation decide for ourselves whether we want to ban gay marriage or not. I sure do not want this Senate to believe for one minute I allow them to think for me!
