My soap box

I don't usually do this, but I feel like getting preachy today, so either bare with me, or have a nice evening...

Gay Marriage.

Everytime I turn on the damn TV that's what they're talking about. It's all over the friggin' internet, it seems I cannot get away from the subject. All you morons out there who are against it, yeah, you're morons, go plant your head in the sand and wait for the end of the world.

Why, dear God, would this even be an issue? Did you know it's only illegal in a few states for people to marry their animals? Yet, it seems two grown individuals who love eachother cannot get a license to wed? What the hell does that mean? You can love a pig, but not someone who happens to be the same sex as you?


You wanna bring religion into this? Fine, let's do that. Marriagewas created as an institution, so that two people could make a commitment to eachother, so that they could bring a family into the world...right? Sure, okay, but then it somehow became a financial institution, and less and less about "love." So, other than those people who have a priest marry them, religion has exactly squat to do with marriage now. Period.

All the bible thumpers, you want to be against something, how about divorce? How about promoting communication between couples, how about bringing things like GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER to the fore front? In a day and age where Brittany Spears can marry a friend just for kicks only to have the marriage annulled days later, are you actually worried that the institution of marriage will become a joke?

Get real, it's already a joke! If your life is so wrapped up in making sure two people can't get a marriage license from the city government, you're pathetic. Marriage is nothing but a financial institution now, the only way God is involved is if you INVITE him into your marriage. End of story. Athiests get married all the time, but people aren't trying to stop them, are they? Bubba can marry a goat, but Billy can't marry the man he's loved for the last five years? Come on people!
