So I decided, after much consideration, to open up this area of conversation on my blog. Many blogs that I follow are christian based, good people, that in my opinion are probably registered Republicans. No judgement here, I define myself as a Republican also. But as a Republican I still deeply believe in equality and the right for the gay community to marry. Let's talk about this!
If you are so against Gay marriage allow me to start by saying why? If your answer is because the bible says it's wrong, then allow me to ask if you have ever committed a sin in your life. (for the record I don't believe that being Gay is in any way shape or form a sin.) I didn't think so. I hear the argument daily that we must keep the SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE. BAHAHAHA 50% percent of first marriages, 67% of second and 74% of third marriages end in divorce, according to Jennifer Baker of the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology in Springfield, Missouri. So if marriage is deemed to be so sacred, why is it so easy to get out of??
Here's my opinion. Legalize Gay marriage, but do away annulments, and make divorce harder to achieve. Let's also make over night marriages impossible to obtain. In order to get married you should have dated and taken time to get to know one another and have no doubts...maybe provide marriage counseling. I know it's a crazy suggestion, and many are saying, but if you believe that we can't be told who to love should the govt. be allowed to tell us when we can get married. My answer is, probably not, but if youa re really and TRULY in love, you can wait a bit longer. This inevitably help with our ridiculous divorce rate, simply because those that would have ended in divorce anyways probably won't end up going down the isle.
To me marriage is a promise to your love in front of God that you will always love and be with them....for better or for worse. So if two Gay human beings are in love and want to express that love by marrying one another, I say BRAVA!!! In a country where we allow people to get married for green cards, money, and out of sheer stupidity and intoxication, I am still trying to figure out why being Gay puts such a stigma on your sanctity of marriage!! Please, enlighten me!!!
