I am for equal rights for everyone-that is the first thing I need to say before my rant.
Okay, seriously, what is wrong with people? I don't understand why the Supreme Court has to deal with this crap when the world is having actual problems.
Today on FB a ton of people have been posting complete crap and some good things too.
I cut and pasted this from someone-I honestly don't know it was on a friend of a friend's page and she liked it. So sorry for not giving credit to a well written statement.
Seriously, I don't understand people sometimes. I am so sick of the "crazy" Christians trying to tell everyone else how to live. They need to read the bible they are thumping again, because as far as I can see they haven't a clue what Jesus was talking about.
I could go on and on and on, but I won't..here is the post.
Against gay marriage? Then don't marry someone of the same sex. If you're truly worried about the sanctity of marriage based on Christian values, remember Solomon and his many wives (so many that he could go years without sleeping with the same one twice), or the verse that tells you if your brother dies, you're to marry his wife (even if you're already married) and attempt to get her pregnant immediately. Remember Jacob, who married one sister but ended up sleeping with and keeping all of Laban's daughters on his wedding night. Lest we forget my favorite Christian edict regarding marriage, IF you rape a virgin, you must pay her father 50 shekels of silver and marry her and you may NEVER divorce her. The fact that rape is condoned boggles my mind. You sure don't see THAT verse on any Prop 8 or DOMA supporter's sign. If you want to call it "traditional family values" then go back to the original "traditional family" where men were allowed to sell their daughters or beat and/or kill their wife (or wives) and children and where divorce was a sin. You don't get to pick and choose your Bible verses to defend your point(s) and ignore any that don't jive with your version of a traditional marriage. I'm pretty sure Kim Kardashian's marriage (and I use the term loosely) wouldn't have qualified as traditional either but you don't see anyone holding up misspelled signs saying "God Hates Attention Whores" or "Popularity Addicted Airheads Burn in Hell" while attempting to ban her wedding. Point is, if two women or two men getting married has ANY impact on your marriage at all, then you have better things to worry about.
