Gays and Same-Sex Marriage

by Daniel McNeet on May 2, 2012

Good day, good people.

For devotees of the English language: Incunabula, a noun, means the primary state of anything.

Social justice is tolerance and equal opportunity for all citizens and is the cornerstone for the growth of America.

I am a member of the First Church of Evolution. C. Darwin is our pastor. I do not understand why religion should be brought into the discussion of gay rights and same-sex marriage. I do not understand why gays should be the whipping boys, girls, men and women for the princes and princesses of religions that are based on faith — a belief and devotion to something which is without logical proof.

It appears to me that tolerance is a nation builder. I have always thought people should do what they want to do as long as they do not hurt or inconvenience others. Some may consider this to be naïve, but it does resemble social justice, does it not?

Politicians who pander to the conservative groups for their votes say they are in favor of gay rights, but are against same-sex marriage — a gay right.

Massachusetts allows gays the right to marry, because the Supreme Judicial Court ruled in 2003 that same sex couples had the right to marry. Governor Romney did everything in his power to prevent the ruling to take effect, but alas he lost that battle, too — fortunately for the cause of tolerance and social justice.

He has repeated many times during his campaign for president in 2012, “Massachusetts should not become the Las Vegas of same-sex marriage. We do not intend to export our marriage confusion to the entire nation.” “Confusion” is an interesting choice of words under the circumstance. Marriage is the union of two people which carries with it the benefits and obligations with a moral sense in attendance. Who is to say or judge that gays cannot raise children or lead a moral life as well as heterosexuals? Where is the “confusion”?

Why not live and let live? Let all people try to do what they want to do — survive and be happy.

It will only be a matter of time before all the states become enlightened and allow gays to marry. Or, maybe I should say, it will only be a matter of time before Congress passes the necessary legislation to allow gays to marry and receive the same benefits and legal obligations of heterosexuals. After all, gay marriage is incunabula — just like our multiverses were at one time.

What is your thought on the contribution tolerance can make in the building of our great nation?

Contacting me with comments and constructive criticisms with honesty and pleasantness their constant companions will always be welcomed.
