Why can’t everyone just get along?
But seriously, why? I understand that there are people you may not like, and there are fights that need to and will happen but in general, why can’t everyone just grow up and be civil? This has nothing to do with anyone doing anything to me, I am just sick of hearing things like racial/sexual/religion issues and crimes.

Currently its the whole equal rights for gays issue. I feel like deep down everyone knows that gays are going to get equal rights, but they still keep fighting. I know this is a huge issue, and there are many sides and arguments, but come on people – it is 2010. We have gone through abolishing slavery and women’s suffrage, and this is just the next thing. Let’s just skip to the end where the right thing eventually is done, and everyone is happy.
I love hearing all of the Bible related reasons against gay people marrying. For every quote there is in the bible against homosexual relationships, there is a quote that says something ludicrous, like women can’t speak in public forums, or you can’t cross breed animals (like two dogs). Haha I just think it is funny. Also, this was a really interesting article: bascially Prop 8 supporters claim same-sex marriage is bad, but can’t say why. Click here to read the excerpt. Its a little long, but really interesting.
I don’t get what the whole deal is anyways. Everyone is born different, and you can’t judge them for that. You can support gay marriage and be straight, I am. Anyone who thinks otherwise doesn’t know what they are talking about.
Anyways, just a little rambling. I say accept people for who they are and what they believe. You don’t have to agree with it, or support it, but at least respect it!
What do you think? Support equal rights/same sex marriage? If not, why?
