I was just reading an article on CNN about Bush's proposal to amend the constitution. That Republicans back him to help "preserve what marriage is". That Democrats are bashing him for trying to add discrimination into the constitution.
One thing that annoys me more than anything else is the attempt to push one's morals onto someone else. Why SHOULDN'T homosexuals have the SAME legal rights as anyone else in this country? Love should not be bound to physicalities, and Love and morals have NO ROOM in the government! This is about equality, not one man's psychotic rage against his personal world view.
And the thing that really makes me Irate is that the man ignored the US for years, and when San Fran started handing out marriages to people who -deserve- it, he FINALLY takes note that, yes, our country does have people living here. Who woulda thunk?
But "Marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman." Yeah, if that were true, why is the divorce rate so high? There's nothing "Sacred" about marriage and there sure as hell isn't any integrity in it anymore. Marriage defined by christians might be Man + Woman, but this country is NOT under Christian authority. The Separation of church and state meant specifically that they cannot affect the workings of the government with their moral bullshit. This is about legality. Civil unions do not give gays the full rights of married couples. JUSTICE IS SUPPOSED TO BE BLIND. If Justice is blind then it cannot see if a couple is M/F, F/F, or M/M. How fucking stupid are you people?
Well this is how stupid, taken right off CNN Santorum said that allowing the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses "devalues what marriage is."
No, idiot, divorces devalue Marriage. Infact there's so many divorces in this country that the whole preservation-of issue is one big JOKE.
"Every culture in the world, every civilization in the world for over 3,000 years, has defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The constitutional amendment merely states that again," he said on CNN Tuesday.
So fine, give gay couples some other term they can use, such as civil union, and give them THE FULL BENEFITS OF MARRIAGE YOU STUPID ASS.
I'll tell you what this whole issue is about. Bush remembered that he's got a country to run, instead of others to attack, and decided to piss a bunch of people off instead of helping others here. If Bush really gave a rat's ass about marriage being sacred, he'd outlaw divorce, and as fucking nutty as the man is, I wouldn't put it past him to try! But no, this isn't about semantics, this isn't about the term "marriage". This is about rights due to people.
I am not gay, but I do support gay equal rights. Look I didn't say Marriage.
While you're at it Bush, why don't you declare women can't vote anymore and blacks should be as slaves....
