As far as I’m concerned, that’s just fine. If a man or woman wants to marry another of the same gender, and it’s consensual, that’s good! It’s showing commitment.
How well are the heterosexuals doing there? Not well, I assure you. Remember Kelsey Grammer? He ended his 15-year marriage over the phone. Larry King had eight divorces. Jesse Jackson and Tiger Woods had multiple sexual affairs while married. Newt Gingrich had multiple sexual affairs while his first and second wives were very ill. I don’t think we have a lot to be proud of – do you?
It’s all about privacy, really. You don’t complain about who sleeps with who. That’s just not right. If you feel justified in whining about who’s gay and married, let’s stick a video camera in your bedroom and see how you like it. And if you want to start thumping on the Holy Bible, read the book of Matthew, chapter 7. Matthew 7:2 is a really good summary of it: “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”
If you feel you can strike from one man or woman any right, which truly is protected by the U.S. and Utah Constitutions, based on your own religious views, how can you complain about your rights being attacked and removed? Right to vote; freedom of religion; freedom from warrantless searches and seizures; right to keep and bear arms; freedom of speech; right to peacefully assemble... Let me be clear – take not from others what you despise being taken from you – the freedom of choice.
