Discrimination OK for some


If you love someone then you should be able to marry them. Even President Obama said so.

If you disagree with his statement, then you no doubt will be labeled a homophobe, racist or a bigot, just to mention a few choice names.

Since love seems to be the only prerequisite to marriage, it would be rather foolish to deny that option to anyone.

If someone is bisexual, then they should be able to marry either a man and a woman as long as they love each other. Who are we to judge or deny them equal rights?

If a member of a family loves another member the family, no matter how close the relationship, why should they be denied the right to marry as long as they all agree not to have children?

Why should age be a factor? If a 40-year-old man and a 12-year-old boy fall in love, then they should have the right to marry.

No matter how distasteful this may seem to you, it may be perfectly right for others. We do not have the right to tell them what to do or discriminate against them. You can’t have it both ways.

So you have no right to discourage, discriminate or refuse to be a part of their wedding celebration, especially if you are a Christian. It seems to be OK to discriminate if you are a homosexual or Muslim.

Let’s get the state out of the marriage business.
