I like this post. The whole "sanctity of marriage" argument as it pertains to same sex marriage is so ridiculous to me, seeing as "traditional" marriage (or, as the former Miss California would say, "opposite marriage") is in such a state.

Plank vs chip, you know?

As long as there are more divorces than marriage in this country, traditional marriage is no more sacred than anything else.

You took the words out of my mouth, Marcus. Felons can get married and so can child abusers, but the gays? No, marriage is sacred. We can't sully marriage by letting gay people get married.

My best friend is gay and he and his boyfriend have been together for three years. Their love is real and were they to decide to, I would fight to the death to allow them to marry (as I would if someone wouldn't allow straight friends of mine to get married, who I believed were in love and right for each other).

I've done things in my life that has made society think less of me. That doesn't bother me much. But to think that laws are being created to prevent my best friend and the man he loves from legally binding themselves together, it makes my blood boil. How dare anyone treat my friend as less than any other human being simply because of the gender he's attracted to?
