Many states now are going into legislature on gay rights. Gay marriage is the big topic here in Indiana. I really don't care what sexual orientation a person is. Does it really matter? If people are nice to me, I am nice to them, gay or straight! I have relatives that are gay. I have many gay friends. We all get along. I think they should have the same rights as straight people do. Two gay people living in a house together, whether married or not, if they share the mortgage, expenses, and their income, they should have the same tax breaks as straight couples do. And so on, and so on!
I was watching TV today and there were two gay men talking. One man was trying out "straight" life, was very unhappy. His friend finally told him, and the conversation went something like this: (not word for word, my memory isn't that good!)
"You are made in the image of God. God put you here just as you are. Just as he did every other person, plant animal, fish and fowl...and gay person. He loves all of his creation. God doesn't make mistakes, so you know he loves you, too."
After hearing that, I thought how true this is. God loves us all, no matter what race, creed or orientation we are.
Okay, I know this will probably cause an uproar, not everyone will agree with me, and I don't expect them to. But I have an opinion and I felt, after all the AZ turmoil, that I just wanted to express my opinion. My blog, my right to speak out. Fortunately,sanity prevailed, and Arizona's gov. vetoed the bill. But did she do it because it was the right thing to do morally, or did she veto the bill because it would hurt the state of AZ financially if she didn't. We won't ever know. I am just glad that it got vetoed.
