Rant: Same Sex Marriage

Can anyone recite the Preamble to the US Constitution? “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

We have fought for our freedoms, amended the Constitution to make sure civil liberties were not trampled upon. Yet, the issue of same-sex marriage is causing a huge fervor- radicals on both sides. But the bottom line is not one of morality or belief. As I quoted before- George Washington has stated the United States is NOT based upon the Christianity belief system, but on basic human rights.

Before everyone jumps on me, let me quote the Fourteenth Amendment, which people in various states and beliefs better remember and think hard on what it means in all instances. “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

So, people, think on this. Are gays, lesbians US citizens or not? That’s the bottom line. If they are US citizens, paying taxes, providing protection, then you can NOT deny them their rights of happiness or that of marriage- which is a CIVIL union, not a religious one. That means,  by abridging the rights of marriage, insurance coverage and more to gays, the States and those who live within them are breaking the 14th Amendment. That’s right, under the US Constitution, by voting on abridging the rights of other US citizens is ILLEGAL. That’s right, no matter what’s said or done, in the end, do you really think the Supreme Court won’t refer to this matter in the long run and say, “You can’t do that- it breaks all of the 14th Amendment.”

Think people. Do you want your rights abused and broken because in one way or another– you’re a minority? Think on it, Think on it hard and remember- one day you WILL be the minority, then what? Do you want your past to come back and haunt you?
