The 2010 Federal census revealed that there were 600,000 gay households of which 115,000 were raising children. Whether Scotus votes favorably on the same sex marriage issues, the nation is beginning to open their eyes and see for themselves that what they thought they knew is far from the truth about same sex couples. The divorce rate not to mention the infidelity rate in the U.S. is on the rise. What does this say about the institution of marriage as viewed by the church and the heterosexuals? Common sense would indicate that if two people would move heaven and earth just to commit to one another, that must be true love.
Traditionally a man and a woman marry either because the sex was good, one has money, one is pregnant or just to prove they are straight. The number of married men who have gay affairs on the side thinking it is acceptable is astounding. The time has come for America to truly be the land of the free and honor the civil rights afforded to us by our constitution. What drives the bans put into state constitutions and defeat of legal marriage benefits is fear. It holds a certain amount of irony when you think of it. Our ancestors came to America looking for freedom, yet over time they have become the very people they left on the shores of Europe. Just how does same sex marriage damage the so called institute of marriage? Is is because same sex couples would be able to get the same tax deductions or health coverage? What makes heterosexuals better than homosexuals? Children are not blind nor are they stupid. They tend to see things for just what they are. Love is love whether it be for a man and a woman, a man and another man or a woman and another woman. we can either choose to be a part of a movement for freedom or get left in the dust as the train leaves the station. It is going to happen within the next 5 years and there is nothing that can stop the movement. It may take another Stonewall, however the gay community is ready to make that move.
