How sad...

After reading so many articles on the gay marriage issue, it makes me sick that the people of this country are so ignorant. You throw your religion around and judge people like myself and say we’re going to hell, blah, blah, blah. Really?

Just remember that the Bible says “judge not lest ye be judged!”

If you’re so devout to your religion then you’re going with us to hell. I want nothing to do with inheriting the “kingdom of god” if I have to be there with you people.

We are people too and live our lives the best we can in a society that would rather hate than accept.

My god, people, why are you so afraid of us. Do we threaten your families, or your way of life. Are we going to ruin “your” life in any way? Why would people like us having “equal” rights affect YOU in any way?

We could care less about how you live your life, so why so concerned with ours. Why is the heterosexual so OBSESSED with controlling our lives. Is there nothing better for you to do?

You would rather worry about the rights of two PEOPLE who love each other getting married than worry about our country falling apart. How very sad for you.
