Love between two people is a peculiar emotion. It grows with every passing day, and it changes as time goes by. It can arrive slowly or, BAM, full-fledged. Sometimes it can die if not tended. But if worked on diligently, it can last a lifetime and beyond.
What is also peculiar about it is that some people, for religious reasons, choose to make it their business to opine on the ‘appropriateness’ of the love of any particular set of two people who wish to formalize their love with a marriage ceremony. Where they get the notion that they have the right to deny the CONSTITUTIONAL Right to the Pursuit of Happiness, the Right to Freedom from Religious Persecution, the Right of Personal Privacy, and the Right to Freedom of Speech I have no idea. But they do.
Somewhere along the line, they got the idea that they were the “Moral Majority” which is, if nothing, a farce. They are not. What they are is the “Minority Morals Gestapo” and, boy, are they taking THAT seriously! Their noses are in everybody’s private business, in their bedrooms, bathrooms, and even in their underwear. Then they loudly and self-righteously proclaim to the media and to lawmakers that “everyone” (which it isn’t but they claim it is) knows that….. and agrees that…..” about something that they really don’t know a handful of blackeyed peas about. Same sex marriages is a great case in point,
According to them, “marriage is between one man and one woman.” Really? Who said? That is basically a religious construct and not even all religions. Some religions allow polygamy and it can be either way. The Hindus even have a god of divorce. There are a couple of societies in Africa and Asia that are matriarchal and a woman will take 3-5 husbands. The ancient Greeks celebrated same sex marriages and thought the gods of Olympus had really honored them. The First Peoples of the North American continent frequently had threesomes (never know when you’ll need a spare?). So this hardline stance is patently bizarre. It’s not biblical, historical, or even sociological. It’s just bone-headed and based on something somebody dreamed up in Sunday School (and don’t get me started on that.)
This is another reason why we need the Marriage Equality Act passed and signed into law ASAP. We need to protect this right by codifying this so these people cannot remove this right from these people.
