California should be banned



So what's the deal Californians? What's the deal with this proposition 8 nonsense. I would understand if there were studies that showed a decline in the sanctity of marriage connected to homosexuals getting married, I would understand if you saw a link between the high divorce rate and gays getting married, or a link between lowered marriage rates and gays getting married but it's just not any of those things. Straight people barely believe in monogamy anymore (thank you misogynistic media and men who write self-help dating books [that's right I blame you]), and fewer yet believe in a sanctified ceremony of marriage. Of joining two souls together in love and harmony forever and ever amen. If people who *do* believe in it want to get married then why the eff do we want to stop them? It's a gift, it's a beautiful thing that everyone else searches for and completely fucks up. If somehow two men, women, trans, men and women were able to stand the thought of getting married to each other I just don't understand why anyone in the world would have the right to stop them. I just don't get it, and I don't think I ever will.

This is the part about religion that always gives me pause, it's the self-righteousness. If you believe in something bigger than yourself, then shut up and hold on to your judgment. Stop looking at what's right and what's wrong, you're deluding yourself. It's never been that easy.

Im a minister who had definite plans moonlighting as an officiator of Gay Unions dashed today.
And as a transplant to California I've noticed that this state engenders a sort of apathetic flakiness among its inhabitants. But maybe Im just projecting.
We dont even have common law marriages here and the taxes suck.

there are a lot of sides to the story though. i think gay people have every right to be together in some way or other but i don't understand why they have to get married.

yeah i don't get that. if they can be together, if they are in love and will be together for life and want to start a family, then what right do you have to stop them? isn't marriage a civil right?

It's not that they HAVE to, it's that they want the freedom to CHOOSE. Why shouldn't they be able to get married?
