With the Ban on Gay marriage in NC. we are seeing in America a continuance of the good, bad, and ugly of American politics! Now while Gay marriage is, for most of America, Morally wrong, it is legally right, and nothing and noone should stand against it! For to do so is a clear imposition upon and against the rights of others!( and right now let's stop equating the gay rights struggle with the Civil Rights struggle! Sex is a choice, race is not! and no matter what Lady Gaga might say, if you are gay you werent born that way!) But in legislating against gay marriage on the grounds of personal morality, are we not becoming as immoral as what we are supposedly standing against? I believe that consenting adults, in a land of freedom, should be allowed to do whatever they choose by law, as long as they arent interfering or jeopordizing the health and welfare of others! That is the American way, and that is what our soldiers have fought and died to defend! But while it is legally right, that does not mean that it is morally validated!Because while you can and should be allowed to marry, it does not mean that I must accept your choice, or in accepting it, validate it!
No more than I should or would validate other "alternative" sexual choices! I respect the right to choose, but I dont have to respect or validate that choice, and no law can or should force me to do so! To paraphrase"I May not agree with your choice, but i will defend to the death your right to make that choice!!" That is the definative, in my opinion, on Gay marriage, which addresses the good, the bad, and the downright ugly! I only hope that those on Both sides of the issue can finally come to that realization, so we can go on with living and focus on more imprtant issues!!!
