I understand that it’s against everything your religion says. That I understand, and actually even sympathize. But you know what, maybe they are not your religion! So what now? Are you preaching your religion on everyone else? Sounds like you are if you’re saying that it’s against YOUR religion. What if, in their religion, it says same-sex marriage is okay? What are you going to do then? Is your religion better than theirs? Last I checked, in the USA, there’s something called “freedom of religion”. Am I wrong here?
I’ll even go ahead and say I understand your children don’t want to be taught these values. Okay, I’ll go with that thought. But don’t you want to teach your children values of forgiveness and care? Treat others like you would want to be treated yourself? What happened to values? If they’re not doing you any harm, why are you harassing them? I think children are not taught these values and instead learn cruelty and selfishness from their parents. Remember, children see what you do and emulate you. The “do as I say, not as I do” thing never worked anyways, why would it start working now?
I’m really rambling I know. I guess I just don’t understand it. There are tax breaks too, I can understand that. But seriously. I don’t think the IRS cares who is married as long as they get their money.
So please, can someone explain what is the big freaking deal? This inspires a poll.
