So tomorrow I have another debate meet, and I know the majority of the crap I speak about is debate, but I reaaaalllllyy like it. Why? Because I feed off of politics and I like being right.
There. I said it.
So today in anticipation I talked a lot about politics. Many of my beliefs had to be defended, and for a good reason.
Gay Marriage, And Prop. 8
Today I got into the 'moral' aspect of the thought of Gay marriage with my friends, and I understand where they're coming from. Most of my friends are Christian, and their religion says that gay marriage is wrong, but who are we to play God and say, "Hey. You're gay. You can't get married because MY God that you might not believe in says that you're participating in sin."
I don't think that we as Humans have the right to pass judgement, because in the end we all do something wrong and we all sin. Who are we to persecute others for being imperfect, when we ourselves are flawed.
If you don't like Gay people, or them wanting to join in holy matrimony then don't associate with those individuals, and don't get a gay marriage.
I can't stress this issue enough. NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO CONDEMN OTHERS BECAUSE OF THEIR BELIEFS. And BTW it's really tacky to rub the fact that a law was passed that made it to where they couldn't marry the person they loved. RESPECT.
Yes, even those radical KKK members. If they want to believe that then fine. The only reason we should step in and intercept is if they harm other beings.
It's like the philosopher Immanuel Kant taught, don't interfere. If a train was speeding down the tracks and on one end of the tracks was a group of Caucasian babies, and on the other end was a group of African babies, and you only had the ability to save one group, which would you save?
Neither. You would walk away. The only way to have a clear conscience is to NOT interfere. This is how we should treat gay marriage and other issues of the sort. Don't interfere. Just let stuff happen. It's best to ignore it than get worked up about something like same sex marriage.
If you don't like it then don't do it. Plain and simple.
