Prop 8….Good bye prejudice, Hello Equality!

Posted: August 6, 2010 in Political Commentary, The Blog!

This past Wednesday a federal judge in California deemed the recent “Prop 8” bill unconstitutional. The bill banned gay couples to become married and was put into action during the 2008 elections. Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker made it very clear the the law was wrong, and was against the 14 Amendment which gives us as Americans the “Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness”. The conservatives and the religious right are hard at it, screaming at hollering that it violates their religious beliefs, that is against the bible and it damages their marriage. As a married man, I can tell you that seeing gay’s get married doesn’t diminish my marriage at all, in fact it just makes me happier knowing that people who love and care for each other would will be allowed to enjoy all the benefits that I receive for being married. People who are against gay marriage need to turn their blinders off and get with the times. It wasn’t too long ago, 1967 to be exact, that 13 states in the country didn’t allow interracial couples to get married, but luckily enough we have gotten passed that. The radical right push their beliefs and ideology on others when they need to keep those beliefs to themselves. I have said it before, I don’t have a problem with anyone who has a certain religious beliefs, but that belief should not be forced into other lives. If you are against gay marriage, than don’t marry a gay person. It doesn’t effect your life or marriage in ANYWAY possible. The same goes for the issue on abortion. If you don’t want one, don’t have one. The answer is very simple folks, were should all be treated equal, treat people as you would like to be treated. Gays have been discriminated against for years and years, and it is time to treat them equal and let them enjoy life to it’s fullest just like the rest of us, just like it says in the US Constitution.
