A frequent discussion had by seemingly different aspects of my life have made myself and my counter parts wonder. Now I'm not a worldly person and not big into politics, but this whole prop 8 issue is really bringing peoples thoughts out of the woodwork. (Prop 8= right to gay marriage) Anyways, I had thought we'd come much further than this with ignorance. Intelligent people saying...oh the next thing we'll be doing is marrying animals. There is a handful of friends and my family that believe it is a no brainer, it should be legalized, while a larger amount of my constituents have either been brainwashed by the church or are just so set in there ways they can't even look beyond what they think they know.
My problem is I am now finding myself saying, how can I love these people so much and they are so hateful to a certain group of human beings. We are all human beings with many different looks, feelings, beliefs, desires........but we are all human beings with rights. Their DNA made them different, just like it maybe gave you a big nose, or no hair, or a petite body frame, or cerebral palsy, or to many fingers, or in my case muscular dystrophy. How can anyone in there right mind think it is a choice? Would someone choose to be this way? Let's not discriminate against people for being different!!! Who do they think they are for making judgements?
Ok, I'm usually not a ranter, but even though the election is over, it really is not over. I am faced with the fact that dear people around me are haters and that really sucks, because I have lost a lot of respect for them.
