Yesterday the Supreme Court voted same-sex marriage legal across the country. From what I’ve heard, it appears there was thunderous applause and an outcry of support for the decision. However, there are still those that seem to think this was a bad decision and it undermines the Constitution.
You can read a story about it below.
I get why there are divided people in the country over the issue. But I really don’t see what the big problem is. And I think that’s the reason why there is such a divide. Many people are taking their own beliefs, what they have been taught and using it as ammunition to fuel a fire to create more of a problem than there should be.
Let’s face it. There are many kinds of people in this world from all walks of life. Many have differing beliefs and values from one another. I can’t believe that several hundred years have passed in this country and there is still bigotry and hatred for things, or people for that matter, that may be different than the “norm.” It really pains me to see people treated differently because of their religion, beliefs, or sexual preference. Whether their sexual preference is a choice or some chemical imbalance in their brain, it makes no difference to me. Because what I see is a person. A person who wants to live. A person who wants to be loved and to love. A person who wants to work and live life to the fullest and not be tormented or ridiculed for the clothes the person wears, or their beliefs or faith, or the color of his or her skin, or even the person’s sexual preference. Which, I would venture to guess, are basically the same things that pretty much every one else in the country wants.
Let’s look at it this way. The Constitution was written more than 200 years ago. This is no longer the 18th century. Let’s pick up our heads and move into the 21st century people. Let’s stop taking everything written in the U. S. Constitution at face value. Times have changed. Things have changed. Let Congress get their heads out of their asses and adapt the Constitution for the 21st century and beyond.
And that goes for EVERYONE in the U. S. If you don’t like something or someone because of his or her beliefs or sexual preference or whatever, then fine. Just keep your mouth shut and keep walking. Because that person has a right to live just as you do. We are all HUMANS. Let’s all live as civilized beings and maybe, just maybe, we can make ourselves and this country stronger.
