- I DO!
It's not a question of whether or not I support same sex marriage as I stated on my previous post I believe that if two people love one another marriage or not they can and will be together if they want to and there's nothing anyone can do about it.
It's true that on a biblical sense God created Adam and Eve for procreation but He also gave us free will. Who’s to say we are breaking some rule by choosing to fall in love and mate for life with a person who has the same gender identity. Marriage is an institution. Marriage is a social union or a legal contract between people that creates kinship (according to Wikipedia). There is nothing or nowhere stated that as such should only be composed of a man and a woman.
Let’s say you’re a man/woman who loves someone from a different religion. What if the state tells you that you cannot be married unless one of you gives up your faith and convert? It’s the same principle with gay marriages. Why is it easier for people to accept two individuals joined through matrimony even if they have different faiths and beliefs but it’s not acceptable for people who have the same gender to have the same rights? Is it really easier to let go of your religion? Is faith really that unessential that it’s easy to just give it up? I say it’s not because faith is the same as individuality, it’s part of who are you and who you choose to be. There are religions that allow marriages to more than one spouse, again this poses a question. Is it easier to accept a bigamous relationship than a marriage between two individuals who wants to be mated to each other (only to each other) for life? And what about interracial relationships, is it easier to accept a marriage between two people who doesn’t share the same culture or upbringing and resent a joining of another just because they have a homosexual relationship?
We all have rights, we all have freedom. We are individuals who are free to choose what we want in our lives.
Yes, I do support same sex marriage as I support every joining of two individuals who wants to be bound to each other. I think it sucks that people categorize other people because of their sexual preference and condemn such relationships because they do not conform to what the masses call as ‘normal’. I think people should be allowed to marry whoever they want to marry, same sex, religion, race or not. It’s sad that after all the advancements, all the inventions and all the things we accomplished we couldn’t get pass this one barrier of close-mindedness. The world will be a better place if we just open our minds to every possibility life has to offer.
