Jersey Shores!

We both have double chins but that is where the similarity begins and ends

A bill legalizing same-sex marriage in New Jersey was delivered Friday morning to Gov. Chris Christie, who has vowed to veto it. The Assembly clerk’s office sent the bill to Christie a day after the chamber approved it 42-33, Assembly spokesman Tom Hester said. The Senate passed the gay marriage proposal on Monday. Christie, a Republican who opposes gay marriage, had vowed “very swift action” once the bill reached his desk. On Friday, Steven Goldstein, chairman of the state’s largest gay rights group, Garden State Equality, said Christie would veto the bill because of his national political ambitions. “He won’t veto the bill because he’s anti-gay,” Goldstein said in a statement. “He’ll veto the bill because the 2016 South Carolina presidential primary electorate is anti-gay.”

I am so tired of this.  When are we going to address this as a nation and make it right!  Take religion out of it.  I don’t care if the church recognises my marriage.   I just want the government to give me the same rights as any other couple under the law.   And I don’t like the “gay marriage” stigma.   We are married, not gay married as if this is something different.   What happens in the bedroom should have no barring on human rights.  Certainly things can happen that are immoral or illegal.  Those things can just as easily happen in a heterosexual relationship as a homosexual one.

These people are acting like we are opening to the flood gates to pedifiles, and perverts, which have nothing to do with it.   In fact, two people in a committed relationship would be the opposite of such perversions.  

We all know this in our heart of hearts.  If a Republican has a gay child, suddenly that is different.  Their gay child is different from me, an exception to the rule.  But we can’t go around legalizing it for all of them.  And don’t get me started on the churches, my dad is a very religious man.  He practices what he preaches.  He accepts me for who I am.  It’s called tolerance.  We are not asking you to join us.  We just want you to leave us alone.  My homosexuality does not define me as a person any more than heterosexuality defines them.  And stop calling it a choice.   Who would choose to be a minority?  To be ridiculed all through school and into adulthood?  To have to hide in fear of persecution?

Enough!

  1. Jeff,
    Well said! I agree with you that it should not be called “gay marriage.” It is marriage, plain and simple. And it doesn’t count unless it is on the federal level. We just had a civil union law passed her in Delaware. Bill and I were going to get “unioned” but decided against it because it really doesn’t mean anything. It’s all play acting. Not until DOMA is repealed and marriage is for all, will we get married. And don’t even get me started on the opportunism of someone like New Jersey governor Chris Christie. I’m not a Republican but I thought he was one who had some sense. Apparently not, he’s going the easy route and putting it up to a vote. Sure, let the majority decide who get what civil rights. We’ve come a long way in this country but we have a LONG WAY to go. I am always amazed at how easily we gays scare so many straight people and closeted gays (them too). This battle is far from over.

  2. it is all rather depressing.
