I get very fired up about this subject. I do not understand opponents of gay marriage, do not see their point of view, am generally lost as to how someone else’s wishes for equal rights infringe upon mine. They are people. There’s the end to my argument. Everyone deserves the same rights to be equally happy, to make decisions in the hospital when the time comes, to inherit, to raise children, to not raise children, to live their life as they deem fit! As Dolly says “gay people should have the right to be as miserable” as married straight people are. Going further, she of wise and humorous zingers turns to the crux of my argument by stating “I think it’s great when people accept themselves for exactly who they are and accept other people. I think that’s the key to happiness and success. It doesn’t matter who you are, as long as you do that really good. We’re all God’s children. He loves us all the same. We have to learn to love each other and ourselves a little better.”
Isn’t that the point? Why would anyone want to draft laws and “protect” the world from more love?
