Shades of Gray

Historic Vote by the Supreme Court

I agree with almost every word of this essay. I don’t think the government should be involved in marriage (or many other aspects of our personal lives) in any way. Marry whomever you wish. I could care less. But do not decry the right of others to think differently than you. I do not agree with the LGBT lifestyle, but who cares what I think? No one should, that is a fact. Your personal life has zero bearing on mine. That is the way it should be. The government should also not give a hoot who you choose to spend your life with.

In a court of law, marriage is a contract between people. Nothing more and nothing less. I say people and not two people because if straight or gay marriage is cool with the government, then why isn’t polygamy cool, also? If you are looking for freedom for yourself, you must be willing to offer it to everyone else. Pretty simple to me – “All men are created equal.”

It will be interesting to see the fallout from the increased governmental intrusion (see the IRS) into the world of gay marriage.
