Civil Unions

23 Feb

I honestly don’t understand what legal ground people against civil unions think they are making. They keep comparing allowing same-sex civil unions to allowing stealing, murder, etc., things that are currently illegal. But they fail to realize that it was also once illegal for a woman to vote, or for people of opposite colored skin to marry.

Things like murder and stealing will always continue to be illegal because they infringe on other people’s rights. I don’t understand who someone else chooses as their partner affects me in any legal way.

I wish that people would just come out and say what they really believe: that it’s a crime against God. At least be honest, if that’s what you believe then be out with it. At that time I would say that’s between God and whoever decides to enter into a civil union.

I’m sure if I were to come up to you and tell you how unholy it is to drink alcohol, and how by punishing your body you commit a crime against God, you’d basically tell me to go to Hell, and that no one can judge you but God. Yet these same people are turning around and judging others.

It’s crazy and silly. And a tad bit fanatical. And a whole lot scary that we cannot separate church and state, or even personal prejudices and civil liberties.
