Your Views on Gay Marriage
When I decided I was going to do this challenge again, I said I’d try to find the entries from 2011 when I did it the first time. I found some of them, not all 30 days. I wanted to see if my feelings, thoughts, decisions, actions had changed at all.
30 Days of Truth ~ Day 18~ Your Views on Gay Marriage(Original post-August 1, 2011)
I FULLY support Gay Marriage.
I do not believe that marriage is strictly between a woman and a man. It doesn’t matter your gender if you are in love with someone and want to spend your life with that person, I believe you should have the same rights and benefits as heterosexual couples. I believe LGBT couples have the same feelings as any other couple, I feel they should be able to be legally married and enjoy the celebration without fear of rejection or discrimination.
I also feel LGBT couples are entitled to any insurance benefits their spouse may be able to provide through their place of employment, and I also support the choice to have children. Whether by artificial insemination, adoption, surrogacy or any other legal means they choose.
I also support LGBT couples who face the challenge of legalities concerning medical decisions they may be required to make for their partner. How dare the government or any institution decide to prohibit a partner from either being with someone who is ill and possibly dying or from making the choices that had previously been discussed by the one who may be too ill to make those decisions at the time choices were needed. No one knows you better than the one you have loved and lived with for the majority of your life. No one else is qualified to make choices…
Marriage is not just for male/female couples any longer.
See above …nothing has changed. Unless you count that I am even more supportive and will fight with everything I am to make sure the rights the SCOTUS declared to be law are kept in place.
