Things change, and if it leaves religion becoming less relevant so be it.
Attitudes continue to evolve and change with the times. This is nothing new.
Not too long ago it was illegal for people of African descent to marry people of
European descent. As we recognize the value in others and honor their rights as
Americans, we will eventually make the right decisions for the nation.
Yep, attitudes and values evolve. Now it's ok to:* lie*
cheat on spouses* have same sex marriage. Our president says it's
ok!* put bounties on football players* electing corrupt
leaders.* giving guns to cartels* leaders wasting money for
personal use.* spend money you don't have* giving American
tax money to the Muslim brotherhood.* entitlement for things without
earning it.Wow! Some people see this as an improvement.
The outcome of the battle over marriage is clear. There is no justifiable
reason to prevent everyone from marrying the person they love, regardless of
gender. Most younger people recognize this, and as the older generation dies
out, this will be accepted by more and more people. Eventually, it will even
come to Utah, as people recognize that there is no problem here. Marriage is
such a great good for the society, that it should be shared with all.Our country has undergone a great struggle to live up to the ideals of its
founders. Our history is one of hard-fought but continuous expansion of
freedom. First, we gave white males who have no landholdings the vote, then we
freed the slaves. We gave them the vote, but it took a century for their voting
rights to be protected. Women were finally given the vote, and eventually the
right of all to marry their choice of a partner of the opposite sex, regardless
of race (a scientifically invalid concept, by the way) was recognized. Each
step of the way, many churches have held back the march of liberty. Many are
still holding back, but they will not succeed.
If America abandons it's founding values and becomes like atheist,
socialist Europe then America will follow Europe into social, and economic
bankruptcy and collapse. Gay marriage is opposed by over 33 states in the union
- each having amended their constitution to protect traditional marriage. Are
all these people haters and bigots or is there something much deeper at play
here that you NEVER here from the main stream media? Barack Obama is a man
without principle. The man will do ANYTHING to retain power. ANYTHING. I
can't imagine another 4 nightmarish years with this man in the White House.
The US is deeply divided and there is no line of compromise - it is either
become like Europe and lose our constitution , our freedom and our future or
FIGHT! Time to FIGHT. I don't want my children or grandchildren to live in
Barack Obama's America!!!
