Bringing In the Stars (by Amelia Fletcher)


Today in religious education, we had a heated argument about gay marriage and I got mad. Very mad. My friend and I were so mad at nearly everyone in the class who said that gay marriage should not be allowed because God created “Adam and Eve” not “Adam and Steve”. Unfortunately, I go to a Catholic school so everyone thought they were so right by quoting the Bible. No, you’re not. God also said obey your parents, don’t have sex before marriage and never get jealous. May I also add that Leviticus also said no hair cuts. But I guess we’re skipping all that. So why can’t we skip the fact that gay marriage is not “appropriate”.
I don’t care if you don’t like the idea of gay marriage or if you don’t like gays. What I do care about is when you try to take the human right of marriage away from them. Everyone deserves to love someone and get married to them without anyone questioning them or making snide comments about it. Why can’t two men or two women get married without judgement? What’s so wrong about that? The problem in our society is that we let people like Kim Kardashian get married for 2 days then divorce but we can’t have people like Ellen Degeneres get married and stay married forever? We’re all just people, all the same underneath the skin and flesh. We all deserve the same rights.
I just hope that one day, I will be able to look back, along with my children or grandchildren and remember the times that homosexuals were not allowed to get married and then I’d laugh about how everything has changed. I hope that one day I’ll be able to say “I can’t believe gay marriage used to not be accepted.” I want to live in a world where homophobia is not a thing and gay marriage is a thing. I want to see it happen before I die but if it doesn’t happen before my death, then I hope it will happen soon after that.

^ That was perfect. Wow. Reblogging for the picture and the words. God is about love, and love is love, no matter what form it takes. Every person has the right to love someone because love is love. :)
