Truthiness Day 18: Maawwaige

Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.

My views on “gay marriage” are the same as my views on “straight marriage.”  It’s marriage plain and simple, and if you prohibit a sector of society that is fully capable of making their own decisions from participating in a societal right, that is discrimination.  I’m not into discrimination; are you?

Marriage in this country is tied up in decisions affecting a spouse’s health and well-being and financial issues.  There is no reason why these issues should be different for same-sex couples than they are opposite-sex couples.  Health and finances have no bearing on the gender of a spouse.  The legal institution of marriage is NOT the same as the religious institution; I see no reason why the religious sector has any bearing on this issue at all.

  1. You said it all in that last sentence. Marriage should be a fundamental right regardless of whether for a same-sex or opposite-sex couple.
