Gay Marriage.

The time has come for equality for all Americans.

For all those protesting gay civil rights under the banner of “traditional marriage”…remember that slavery used to be traditional, too…and that divorce is more common in “red states” than blue. Where’s the protest in Texas, today, against divorce?

It’s legal in Canada. It’s legal in Mexico. “The U.S. Supreme Court takes up the issue of same sex marriage today. A new poll shows that 53% of American’s now support gay marriage.” It’s high time we join in solidarity for Civil Rights for all Americans.

  1. You should probably double-check the title of the article… Proofreading is important.

  2. Ha. Wearing glasses when reading is important. Nevermind. I can't even figure out how to delete that first comment.

  3. Bobbie says:

    ..the title is referring to the first article…… Hmmmm…pay attention.

  4. Which is exactly why I posted the next comment. Now who's not paying attention? I just have no idea how to delete the first comment or I would have.

    We can delete, if you prefer! No worries! The title was included to spark interest from those who may not already agree with equal rights…and to spark the interest of those who do (and, yes, it's the title of the first image). ~ Waylon

    Okay, first things first, this is the 21st century, I think that all of those reasons are BS and another thing, change happens in everything so deal with it!!
    Our nation doesn’t have one religion, people make babies all the time, that will never change. Some of you reasons like marrying a dog are stupid, ridiculous and way too far! I mean come on, get a grip on reality.
    Love is love no matter what! I’m just so frustrated right now that I don’t even know what to say without it turning into some huge rant!

    So…think what you want, and listen to Katy Perry’s song about kissing girls!

  8. Sky says:

    Oh and BTW, interracial marriages are fine too. I mean come on, at least we’re all human!!! Plus there’s nothing “unnatural” about homosexuality. A lot of Americans wear glasses and we ALWAYS use air conditioning! It’s so much BS! I can’t believe this…

  9. Sky says:

    PS, God did not write the bible, people did! You might as well worship your next door neighbor. Besides, the so called New Testament was written like forever ago. Seriously, now would you marry off your teenage daughter to a man in his fifties or sell her for sheep? Modern people don’t do things like that.

    speaking of the bible i do believe it says we are all brother and sisters, so technically we all don incest in a way so why should gay marriage be a problem

    I’m pretty sure the first image is sarcasm

    First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask

    if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first

    10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or

    tips? Kudos!
