Adding a jump to clean up the home page.
My name is Hugh Murray and I’m a 26 year old catholic, heterosexual male from Long Island. I was just poking fun at a friend that changed his Facebook picture to an equal sign to support gay marriage and I realized that I don’t care about issues enough to do things about them. Then it struck me that I’m a good person and I should do good things for good causes. I will not change my Facebook picture to an equal sign. Instead, I will call you out on the internet. Like any normal person would.
First off, I think that marriage is a silly issue and will almost be a dead institution in the next fifty years. Saying “Let’s get married” is like saying “Let’s get a VCR” and I think the only thing marriage has going for it is the passion that the homosexuals are showing. Seriously. When have people been THIS excited to get married? Ever?
Every comedian, sitcom writer and politician is doing everything in their power to ruin the luster of marriage. Marriage has become a parody of itself and a dread for most people. It’s become a thing that a person does when they hit a certain age and get comfortable with another person and have nothing else to accomplish.
Notice how I said person?
If you are as smart as you would have your voters to believe, you will allow the gays to marry. What is the argument against gay marriage? That God has already determined that marriage is defined as a man and a woman? Is that what your telling me? I’m not pro-science but there’s a lot of things that our “God” says that seems like a crazy person wrote them. Oh and it really is just coming from a book that he didn’t even write. Right? We all understand that God’s word isn’t the Bible. God’s word would crumble the skin of any human with it’s awesome power. No one’s heard him speak in thousands of years. And why? Maybe he gave up on us. Maybe he’s waiting for us to do something worth while before he congratulates us. Maybe he wants us to stop trashing the gift that he gave us.
Notice how I said maybe?
I understand that marriage is a religious ceremony. However, people are still getting married in casino parking lots, cruise ships and court houses. Once marriage was able to be declared legitimate in a court of law, it became an American matter. And as Americans, we need to unify to allow our gay friends to get married. For two reasons:
1. Americans need something to fight for. Americans are at their best when they rise up to defeat a common enemy. It’s just sad to see that the common enemy is our own bigotry. The Labor Movement, Civil Rights, Women’s Equality. These were all awesome times in our history. The gays are the only ones left out in the cold and if you haven’t noticed…no one has fucking died when they didn’t get their way. The gays haven’t car bombed anyone like the Irish did during the Labor Movement. No one’s bra was set aflame like the women. And the leader of the gay movement won’t be assassinated for dreaming. I think more people were hurt by Occupation Wall Street, to be honest.
2. Americans were the FIRST to want change and now we are the LAST to let it happen. This is a tired argument, but our ancestors came here because of religious persecution. Then our hypocrisy destroyed the real Americans. Now we’re telling people they can’t get married because of their religion? Don’t you get it? Their religion says that two dudes CAN get married and in America we have a freedom of religion. (And it’s for this that I don’t understand why we don’t let the polygamists get away with their wacky cult-shit)
I understand that this is very unnatural. The other part of the argument seems to be child care. If you took a species of something and made every single member of that species gay, then that species would eventually die out. However, we are humans. Humans have the ability to invent. We have invented the technology that will keep our race alive as long as this earth lets us. As long as being gay is a choice, there will always be orphans and poor children that deserve a two salary home.
I also do not believe that gay parents would force their children to be homosexual. I think the process of “coming out of the closet” is such a emotional hurricane that they wouldn’t wish it on their worst enemy, let alone a child they care for. Plus, they wanted the freedom to chose, I would hope that they would want the same for their child.
Well, I think I’ve made too much sense to be taken seriously so I’ll close this open letter out. Please contact me however you want. You’re the government, so you can probably put a two way speaker in my bedroom if need be.
