Gay marriage.....blah blah blah

So I just watched this documentary about gay marriage in America. I find it so sad that we are actually taking the time to debate something like this. It is a civil rights issue, in my opinion. There is such a thing as separation of church and state in our constitution which means that we should not be bringing our religious views into lawmaking. Well, guess what, the religious right is once again trying to apply THEIR viewpoints onto everyone in society. Ok, so say you are should know that even God (from a Christian view point) gives all of us free will. So what's the big deal about sex then? And if you want to argue the whole "what the bible says is..." arguement then I suggest you look into all the ways that the bible has been modified throughout the years. It is pretty obvious to me. Sex is just sex....that's all it is. It is really no big deal. We are the ones making it a big deal. Look at all the animals that do it. Now, since animals "have no soul" as so many seem to believe, then they apparently have no grasping of right or wrong, so are they going to hell too since they sometimes hump members of the same sex? hmmmm....something to ponder. The problem is that the people that are so adimately against gay rights are also the same people that need to focus on their own lives mirroring that of Christ. If you really want it in your face, I feel that Christ was a liberal democrat of sorts. Anyway, I guess it really doesn't matter what I think anyway. Oh well, someday all the closed-minded people will figure it out. But, by then, will it be too late?

I was upset by the combination of church and government last year when this issue came up. I just don't see why the gov should be stopping it.

I agree with you, it's an inidividual's choice and the govt. should be careful to avoid the seperation of church and state. To propose a constitutional amendment and creat another battle in our culture war is unacceptable. When we invest our time and attention in this kind of cheap campaign rhetoric we're allowing them to divert our attention from the real issues. I also agree that Christ was a liberal democrat of sorts. He preached love and tolerance, two wonderful qualities often left out of the current debates.
By the way, thank you for serving our country. I have a brother-in-law in Iraq and am very concerned for him and our other brothers and sisters serving over there.
