I would have to say this is the most important cause near and dear to my heart. Gay rights has always been important to me. I cannot remember a time in my life when I did not adore gay men and women.
It still amazes me that these people have to fight tooth and nail for basic rights. I may never understand hating a group because of who they love. It's ridiculous.
Now, I did not grow up during a time of racism. By the time I was born the people I interacted with did not differentiate between the color of someone's skin. Men and women could marry regardless of race, color, or creed...sort of. All people are equal in the eyes of the government, oh wait. Not you. You guys sit in the back of the bus. You gay people have to use this other water fountain. You cannot marry another man because God says it's a sin.
What happened to seperation of church and state? How can you base laws on religious beliefs? Whose business is it anyway if two people love each other and want to express that love in the legal bonds of marriage which give them equal rights in parenting, insurance, and beneficiary situations?
It took way too long for equal racial rights. Please don't let this drag on forever. Let love prevail.
