Imagine you're in love with someone, and you know that they are the one. They are the one who make you laugh, and make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. They are the one that you want to spend the rest of your life with and believe it or not it's a mutual consensus. You decide to get married.
However there is one problem-your partner and you are the same sex and it's illegal for you to get married.
Same sex marriage is an issue that has been in the news recently. Honestly, I believe that there shouldn't be much of an issue for that. Everyone who is in love, and wants to get married should have that right. It's a human right to get a wedding that you desire, I firmly believe that.
However some people do not believe that, and although we've progressed fairly far in this field, we still have a long way to go. Nine states allow gay marriage. And how many states are in the union?
Some say that it's because the Bible doesn't say that marriage is between a man and a man and a woman and a woman. However, isn't there supposed to be a separation between church and state? We don't allow the Bible to be taught in public schools, so why should we allow it to control our laws?
The bottom line is gay or straight, everyone who wants to have the legal rights of marriage should have them. It bothers me, because there are people who get married for the wrong reasons, heterosexual couples nonetheless can get married, yet the homosexual couple who wants to get married for the right reasons can not. It makes no sense to me whatsoever. Because of this, gay people who are in love are denied the right of making decisions for an incompetent loved one who is no longer able to make a decision on their own. They, although they love each other, can not legally call each other family.
I do believe in God, and the Bible. I believe that God wants gay people the way that they are because that's the way that he made them. Therefore, we can not deny those people that right, because they love who they love. It shouldn't be a debate. It's love.
