I am ashamed of California, where the gay marriage ban was upheld today by the state supreme court.
What infuriates me the most are the defenders of “traditional” marriage; those who insist we are better off with only men marrying women. When they’re asked why, the answer is some blather about the decay of society, and God’s will, and Christian nation, and infringing upon our rights and blah … blah … blah.
Idiots. All of them. Idiots.
One day, in the not-too-distant future, opponents of gay marriage will look back and be ashamed of themselves. They’ll be the George Wallaces of the early 2000sâ€”immoral fools just not smart enough to understand historical implications. This sort of commercial will be shown in documentaries, and people will laugh. Such garbage.
For anyone who disagrees, take it from me: I have gay friends who are married. Some of them have children. They raise them with love; live with love; deal with emotional and business and financial and life decisions just like heterosexual couples do.
It’s time to end this nonsense and do the right thing.
