Attack the Gays

I know I've said it before and I'll say it again -- if you're against gay marriage then you're a bigot, plain and simple. There isn't a gray area on this. I don't care what your religion teaches or what God you follow. This is America and religious beliefs have no place in politics. BTW, God did not have anything to do with the election of George W. Bush, either.

Now, anyone who supports any law that takes away or limits the civil liberties of someone else should go live in another country. Our beautiful and sometimes flawed U.S. Constitution guarntees the rights of all American citizens, not just the straight, white ones. We're all created equal and denying marriage to people because YOU disagree with it is not only stupid, but anti-American and un-Christian.

Further, think about this. Bush has been discussing this anti-gay amendment on and off since he ran for President in 2000, but why hasn't he done anything about it until now?

Why? Because the Republicans are set to lose control of the Senate and quite possibly the House, as well as local elections and why is that?

First, the war in Iraq. The American public has turned against this war and the politicians who started it.

Second, it's still the economy, stupid. Our wages are not going up. The Wall Street Journal just reported that the average raise across the nation was merely 3.7% -- if you weren't a CEO or someone in Management. That means that while our gas prices have risen 58% since 2003, our salaries haven't been able to keep up. And, that pisses a lot of us off.

Third, the gas prices. Whether it is true or not, people believe that friends of President Bush are getting rich off of our high gas prices and they blame Bush and the Republican party for doing nothing these last few years. And, it's going to get a lot worst than better.

Finally, when you go to vote, even if you do support the anti-gay amendment, keep in mind the price you will pay to vote for that Republican. He's not looking out for you, he's looking out for number one -- and that isn't you and it isn't me.

God Bless

P.S. Eventually, even if the anti-gay amendment passes, gays will be allowed to marry. Maybe not in the next ten years, but eventually. And, this will have worked out to have been a waste of time, energy and money. Before you cast your vote for a politician who hasn't done a thing to help the American public, keep in mind how much he or she will end up hurting you in the end, just so a few gays can't get married. I hope you think it's worth it.

Hey see my post on abortion at www.mango3746ep.blogspot.com. I believe the same thing about gay marriage. Personally I feel that it is wrong, but politically I feel it has nothing to do with the government. It is a personal choice, not something to government can tell me about.

This wouldn't even be an issue if married, childless couples weren't a special protected class of Americans. I understand the idea of protecting children in a marriage, but what about the tax breaks and other benefits -- such as being able to make medical decisions for a sick spouse -- that you get even if you have no children? If those didn't exist, us gays would not be looking for legal marriages, just religious ones.

Thanks for posting and God Bless

For some people, gay marriages make them feel uncomfortable and I think that's understandable since we have different views. It's just a matter of respecting each other's opinions. Religion often comes up as a reason for opposing such union, but religion has got nothing to do with federal laws. They are both two separate things.

Browsed a great website that takes tracts politicians and contains their stances and/or opinions on sensitive issues such as gay marriages. URL is http://www.votersdomain.com/

checked out the link http://www.votersdomain.com/ and found this article: Sen. Clinton Attacks GOP Over Gay Marriage Amendment

Hillary Clinton:

"When I travel around and speak with people whom I'm representing, they worry about everything from terrorism to gas prices to the cost of health care to energy independence. There's a long list. What we're going to do this week is not on the list. It is unfortunately on the list of the political machine of the White House and the Republican majority."
