:2funny: I love that line: "the war on WHATEVER!" that's perfect!
But thank you also for bringing this thread back to what it is supposed to be addressing.
justine i'm finding that no matter how much i say i feel like i'm always missing something .................and then you come along and finish the thought i couldn't finish myself. That line about the war on whatever was actually something that got me in alot of trouble at school because apparently im not supportive of our troops, which is funny because i never said anything about the troops. But once again this is a gay marriage thread so with that in mind let me once again bring it back to what it is. Gay marriage- the marriage of two gay or lesbian human beings who wish to solidify the bond they share.
Even at the dawn of time whenever that was , and then when cavemen and cavewomen were around they had a bond of two people sharing a home and sharing a special bond that only they shared. I believe this was the bond of love. I'm not gonna go and say there was or was not gays and lesbians back in the stone ago because i sure as hell wasn't there and i can't call fred flinstone to ask him so it's all speculation, but the point of the matter is even then people were connected by a bond greater then themselves and anything else. I believe when something so complex , yet so simple, as love brings two beings together there is no person, not the president, not the supreme court, not the senate or the house, any governer, any religous leader, any mayor , or any person who has the right to say they shouldn't be together just like any other two people in the world. But unfortunetly people do have the right to say that , and presidents can interject their opinions so that it influences the senate and the house, and the supreme court , and the governers , and the mayors. I can only hope that one day we look past the flesh that covers us and see behind our eyes that can tell a million stories or nothing at all, and see that deep down we are all human beings with ambitions in life, emotions, feelings, the desire to love and be loved, and to be free and equal. To ask for equality , thats what this is just a beg a plea , no matter how desperate it seems. I can say a million times I AM NOT GAY and i'm not im in a relationship and have been for over a year and half with a girl who i love more than anything, but I can't help but see people who want to only have the equal rights that everyone else has. What has our country done in the past 227 years. Have we made any progress or have we only regressed back to times when slavery was ok, when we sat back and watched people be killed for what they believe in. Equal Rights, as a member of the straight community it's what i am asking for and if i had only one request from one member of the United States government that is what i would ask for. After everywar fought in the name of freedom please live up to what you fight and let this finally be a free nation with freedom of choice , freedom of religion , i could go on forever but most important of all equal rights , whether it be all rights or none at least let it be equal because after all freedom,equal rights, it's what we have been fighting for since we have became a free nation. I guess my last question is are we really a free nation or still a nation suffering from tyrany.
