Right now, the most important issue haunting most Americans is the dwindling economy.
The opponents of gay marriage have blinders on, and they are not willing to see the real problems.
If gay marriage were to become federally legal, nothing would happen to the United States.
The idea that the sanctity of heterosexual marriage will be crippled is an imaginary issue.
Recent statistics show the current divorce rate for the United States is almost 50 percent.
If marriages in this country are so flippantly broken, then there is no sanctity left.
Some of the loudest opponents of gay marriage, like Rush Limbaugh, have multiple divorces, but they still claim they are fighting for an ideal sacred union.
Many opponents also claim to be defending their religion’s view on marriage.
What they fail to realize is their religion does not apply to the rest of the country. They are imposing their religious beliefs as though they were federal law.
They perceive a threat that isn’t real, and their response is infringing on the rights of the homosexual community.
Of course, not all religions or religious organizations have anti-gay beliefs. Unfortunately, the ones that do have the most money and political power. I am sad to say that those are the ones that help propagate and pass laws like the one in North Carolina.
The solution to this debate is quite simple.
Since gay marriage has no actual negative consequences, it should be completely legal. The fact that states such as North Carolina are fighting against a group of people demanding equal rights is counterproductive.
Many political groups claim to be standing up for our freedoms, political or otherwise.
Certain groups believe in oppressing a minority and do not understand the meaning of freedom.
Hopefully, the future will bring equality, and all this arguing will look ridiculous.
The voices of people standing up for the rights of the gay and lesbian community are getting louder.
Whatever the reasons are for opposing gay marriage, we believe they are illegitimate.
They are the result of years of ill-informed indoctrination and old world fears.
