I agree with the President

It is about time that we had a president in this country that is for same sex marriage.  The anti gay marriage feelings in this country are no different than the anti minority or anti women ones we had to deal with decades ago.  The United States is discriminating against a whole demographic of people and somehow this is suppose to be okay. 

I live in the land of the free.  We are suppose to have freedoms in this county, not oppression.  The government has too much control in our lives already without them telling us who we can and cannot marry.  I don't expect the government to be able to tell me where I can live, so why can they tell me what I can and cannot do with my roommate.  After all that is all marriage is, two people who love each other, most of the time, cohabiting in the same household.

There is no sanctity of marriage that the right wing shouts about.  The ones screaming that the loudest are usually the ones that are on their 4th marriage with the 10th mistress on the side.  The Republican party is horrible about sex scandles, both straight and gay ones.  They are the last ones that should be saying that same sex marriage will ruin marriage for everyone.

We are suppose to have a separation of church and state in this country.  For those of you who are bible thumping scripture quoting bigots, I'll break it down into terms you can understand.  Anything that you think should be a law based on something that is in your book, that you of course follow everything in not just select things, you cannot do that due to freedom of religion.  Our freedom of religion is suppose to protect us not only to be free of persecution for practicing our religion of choice, but also against laws based on beliefs of religions not our own.

Some people in our country need to take a long look at the Bill of Rights for our country.  They could learn a lot by taking a look at the whole bill of rights and not just the pieces that they want to look at.  There is nothing saying it's okay to discriminate against a demographic of people because we don't agree with their lifestyle.  Our politicians would do good to remember that, and to remind the voters of the same.
