From what I see almost all conservatives are flaming the new gay marriage laws and see it as a major threat to christianity itself, alone with other
religious establishments in the nation. I oppose gay marriage because to be it is a religious thing, however I do not oppose the same rights of
marriage passed onto gays themselves. That being said for us to ban gays from getting married is against the very constitutional rights the founding
fathers implemented upon this nation. If folks here love their gun rights, their freedom of speech, then we should also respect the rights of all man
regardless of race, creed or sexuality.
That being said marriage in itself written in the law is unconstitutional for the founding fathers established these United States to be have a
seperation of religion and law. For years fringers and conservatives alike have waved the constitution in everybodies face when it came to their
arguments, however they continously forget other aspects of the constitution that they fail to follow. Marriage is written in the law, however it is
relgious, and in addition these laws to fall over all american citizens, regardless of their race, creed sexuality. In that sense the law of marriage
itself is unconstitional and is constitutional when applied to gays.
I say that if folks feel gay marriage as a threat to their religion then take the term "marriage" out of the laws of these lands, keep it strictly
christian and imploy a replacement term that follows all the same laws as marriages, besides specifically naming a priest that is who 99% of the time
does marriages. Keep the religious marriage law to christianity itself and then in that sense nobody here will have to worry about gays and other
kinds of sexuality taking part in it.
So the question many here would then ask, well what if I want to get married but at the same time have the laws and rights of marriage? Well you have
to go through the replacement law that carries out "marriages" but at the same time you can also choose to do so under christian churches, although
that have no direct link to the law of the land, just purely choice.
I think its only fair and I feel it will make everybody happy. If folks here well and truly feel this isnt fair then maybe you should reconsider where
you stand with the constitution.
