Gay Marriage

I haven’t talked about politics much here, and only because I did not find it significant to my art. But, I’ve noticed some activity around here that compels me to address this issue. I need to clear something up to followers and readers of my blog. I advocate gay marriage. Actually, I advocate civil rights.

I want to make this as simple as possible. It frustrates me that sometimes I can be as cogent as possible and people still argue with me or shake their heads. But I’ll be concise here.

I am not a libertarian. I do not think you should be allowed to bring a loaded gun into a movie theater just in case someone yells fire. But this issue is about someone being allowed to be happy.

When I found out my father was gay, my initial reaction was simple. I shrugged it off. It didn’t seem that bizarre. When I went into church and was told about a man who walked on water and folks who talked to burning bushes. It seemed bizarre. But I did immediately try to stop those people from what they were doing no matter how much I could never figure out what the hell was going on, so what is the problem with these particular religious individuals. Many of these people may be unable to think for themselves or are full of superstition.

The question I am wanting to ask here is… Two males or 2 females being attracted to each other is a natural thing. People sitting in pews listening to a preacher who claims insight into the minds of ancient authors is a supernatural thing… so my question is… how does what these people say about this make any sense?

  1. Reblogged this on The Dad Poet and commented:
    My first post of the New Year was delayed, well eaten actually, in a technical malfunction, so first I want to share my youngest son’s insightful words about civil rights and gay marriage. When he was 12, during the 2008 election I remember him being very frustrated by conservatives on this issue. “what is wrong with them? Have they seen the divorce rate in this country?” He asked. “It’s about 50%. They don’t need your help destroying the institution of marriage; they are doing a fine job on their own!”

  2. What can one say? As one who has no high regard for marriage..(for most women in the world , it still means wedLOCK) I feel if a so called Christian does not like same sex marriage, s/he should not do it. Why s/he should stick their nose into other’s choices..or even care about them, baffles me. But then , people baffle me , full stop. Why do they design lethal weapons and sit back and watch them being used on children..etc etc. Why do they saw the tusks from elephants and leave them to bleed to death..etc..etc..People baffle me.

  3. Hi, firstly thanks for the follow, I appreciate it 🙂
