Tomorrow can possibly be one of the biggest days in US History. If Prop 8/DOMA is reversed — we will be one step closer to equality for all. It always take society some time to catch up — hell it’s still catching up in some parts of this country — but it eventually does and will. Nine states have already made same sex marriage legal, and if it passes the other 41 will follow suit.
As a person of color, I’ve been discriminated against many times just because of the color of my skin — something I didn’t chose, I was just born brown. I see it as the same thing. Discriminating because of how you were born — something you had no control over.
As a person of faith, I also don’t see why there is so much conflict on this issue on the Christianity front ( I can’t speak on behalf of other belief systems). Jesus is all about free will — he doesn’t force people to follow him. I don’t know why we are forcing hate onto loving dudes and ladies who just wanna get married and have the same rights as every other American here. We are asked to treat others like we’d like to be treated and to above all else, love our neighbors. So neighbors, here is to tomorrow.
PS. I also expect everyone to be married by the end of next year (2014). Take that domestic partnership//common law marriage// Brad and Angelina type of love to the next level. I wanna see commitments, rings, celebrations of love ASAP.
PSS. I also wonder when DOMA is reversed, if all the gay billionaires will just then become Republicans and just live off that compound interest for generations upon generations to come. I mean, just use that tax loophole, am I right!?
PSSS. I just googled gay billionaires. I think I have ADD.
PSSS. The rulings aren’t until June? WHAT??!! Ugghhhhh
