--If I were President or Prime Minister for a day what is one law I would change?
*Before even beginning I want everyone to remember that I don't judge people for their opinions and I would hope that I wouldn't get judged or bashed for mine.*
There are a lot I would change. Something that recently came up when I was vising Missouri was the issue of gay marriage.
Well, I don't see an issue with it. When it comes down to it people are people and this country was founded on the principle that all people are created equal. Why is it that straight people have the right to get married but gay people don't?
One point that came up in the discussion was that it was a sin from a biblical standpoint. I'm not a super religious person so the way I feel is that if there's such a big issue about all this separation of church and state then there is really no weight to this argument in this situation. (I'm not saying I will agree with this opinion in any situation, but that's not what this post is about.) I'm just not one to put my entire defense of why I feel a certain way on religion alone either.
Somebody else said that it would create a bad environment for children. Wait... so it's okay for deadbeats that are straight to have kids that don't get taken care of to legally have children but not for two people that may have a significantly better situation to raise children. A bad parent is a bad parent is a bad parent. You can't say that a person would be an unsuitable parent because of their sexuality. That's like saying someone is a bad parent because they are deaf or they are white or whatever the case may be.
I guess bottom line is that I think people have to be a little more open minded. If I were to break down every aspect of every person I've ever met and distribute those characteristics or attributes into pros and cons I would never have something negative to say about somebody's sexuality. That's just one little piece of them as a whole person and I wouldn't want to miss out on everything they may have to offer because I couldn't get past one small percentage of their being.
