You know, as New Jersey gives homosexual partners full rights under the law, just like heterosexual married partners, it occurs to me that I have never really understood how GAY marriage threatens the “sacred” nature of straight marriage. (That may not be the official term, but that’s really what it is, right?)
I’ve heard the outcry, about how legalizing gay marriage will threaten the sanctity of ALL marriages. It boggles the mind. I mean, really, if you are GAY, you are gay. The only BAD thing I have ever seen come from gay people legally marrying straight people is when they FINALLY accept that they are gay and abandon their families, TEARING apart and destroying lives that NEVER would have been torn apart had the gay person not been forced to HIDE their real sexuality. Is this the aim of not allowing them to marry each other?
Because, let’s face it. If you ARE NOT GAY, you aren’t suddenly going to decide to marry someone of the same sex. The “gay recruitment” agenda I’ve heard some morons speak of is so ridiculous, that it should be it should be the definition of “stupid” in the dictionary.
Either you ARE gay, or you aren’t. The only confusion in sexuality comes when people say being gay is this HORRENDOUS sin and an abberation of nature. Then, damn straight you are going to be questioning your sexuality and trying to force your round self in the square box.
Who wants to be an abberation of nature? Well, except maybe that Rush Limbaugh guy. And Jared Leto. And probably Tom Cruise, but since he has solved all the words problems, you’d have a hard time convincing HIM of that.
So again, I ask, WHERE does the threat come from? Does the Religious Right think people are lemmings, with no ability to think or reason? Don’t answer that. It’s on their Christmas list.
The truth is, LEGALIZING gay marriage is NOT going to drive hordes of formerly heterosexual people into gay relationships. Because THAT IS NOT THE WAY IT WORKS. Please. I ask Rush Limbaugh, “if we legalize gay marriage, are you going to propose to Howard Stern? Enquiring minds want to know?”
I ask Orrin Hatch, “So, if we legalize gay marriage, does this mean you and Michael Jackson will be hooking up?”
No? Then again, I ask HOW DOES GAY MARRIAGE THREATEN STRAIGHT MARRIAGE?
Please, someone, give me a good reason. GIVE ME A LEGITIMATE ARGUMENT, besides, “It says so in the Bible.”
