We at thinksquad understand that usually, talking about Gays, Lesbians, and Bi-sexuals makes people feel about as comfortable as Yao Ming wearing a snow-suit in the backseat of a VW beetle, on a hot summer’s day, with the windows rolled up and no air conditioning while listening to the Jonas Brothers on a perpetual loop .
The house is trying to pass a bill to allow gays to serve openly in the military, which it has just passed the sub-committee and now has to go before all of congress. Most of us have never even seen gay people in the military; they are as noticeable as a busboy at Hooters.
Why single out a group of people and hound them, beat them, decry their existence, and deprive them of jobs and even marriage, for the sake of being gay.
We here at thinksquad believe we should allow gay marriage, not only should homosexuals have the same rights to make themselves miserable as straight people, but even if Christians are right, and gays are all going to hell, that’s their right too. If true Christians believe in the Bible, then they should know that God gave us free will, no? We all have the right to choose whether or not to sin in our lives, no? If anything it’s a God-given right to SIN in any way they choose.
thinksquad also believes the ONLY sensible way for a government to deal with the issue of marriage is to wash its hands of it completely. Allow legal adults to write up and certify whatever legal contracts they like between one another, including civil partnerships. Settle inheritance, adoption and taxation issues. And then, if you want to get married in “the eyes of God” or who/what ever you think gives a crap about your personal life, settle the matter with your church.
And while you’re at it, get rid of ANY AND ALL laws regarding any kind of consensual sexual activity. All of them. Because it’s none of my business what you do in your bedroom, it’s none of your business what I do in mine, and it’s certainly none of the government’s business either way.
