Prop. 8

I cannot believe this whole Proposition 8 thing is even an issue. Yes, I understand that there are lots of crazy, hateful, psychotic Christian conservatives who have an opinion. I get that. They can have their opinion. They can picket, they can throw food at gay people. Hell, they can even burn effigies of gay people in the streets for all I care. Everyone's got a right to their opinion.

What I don't get is WHY IT'S EVEN AN ISSUE! I don't care if you think gay marriage is beautiful or completely abhorrent, Prop. 8 is illegal. It's unconstitutional. You can't tell someone that they have no right to a civil liberty because they are attracted to someone of the same sex. What's next, telling black people that they can't use the "whites only" water fountain? Telling Hispanic Americans that they are not allowed to breed?

Since when do people get the right to vote on an issue where a religious belief is made into a law - a law that takes away the basic human rights of a minority. WHY is it being voted on? This shouldn't even be being voted on. It's as simple as that.

WHY IS THIS EVEN A FREAKING ISSUE, PEOPLE?! Are we going back in time or something?

And to you Christians who are so unbelievably NON-Christian, maybe you need to go read the freaking Bible. Jesus died for your sins, morons. That means everyone is forgiven if they believe in Christ. That renders the rules of the Old Testament null and void. That was Jesus' purpose. And if that's not good enough for you, maybe you should highlight the part where God said that only he has the right to judge and our only business is to love our neighbor and treat him the way we would want to be treated. Didn't Jesus say "let he who is without sin cast the first stone?" Maybe we should take away your right to be married because you drink alcohol or eat pork on Friday.

Hell, I'm PAGAN and I'm more Christian than most "Christians."
