On the 26th of June, the Supreme Court of the US decided in a 5-4 ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional. This proved to be a landmark victory for LBGT rights
DOMA, signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996, prevented same-sex couples whose marriages were recognized by their home state from receiving the hundreds of benefits available to other married couples under federal law. The Huffington Post
Now, I’m a practicing Catholic, and even I support LBGT rights. I’ve never thought that the two should be exclusive to one another. Shit, I think Jesus had one commandment that we should all try to live by, and that was “Love one another, as I have loved you.” (Translation, “DON’T BE A CUNT.”) Fair enough, JC. I don’t think that any of us have the right to define just what love is. Except Haddaway.
If two people of the same sex want to get married and enjoy the same rights as heterosexual couples, who are we to stop ’em? Who does it hurt? Really? Just because gay people are gettin’ married and stuff doesn’t mean that you’re automatically start craving cock (if you’re a male), or wanting to eat carpet (if you’re female). Then again, with the way that some people are acting now, you’d think that somethin’ crawled up their respective assholes. Let LBGT couples be.
Not long after the ruling was made, various Christian groups started letting their opinions be heard. I found this picture on facebook.
There’s a sayin’ out there, and sadly, it’s been my M.O. when dealing with crazy Christians.
“Dear Lord, protect me from your followers. Amen.”
Now, that picture just wasn’t gay enough, in my opinion. So I commissioned my cousin Charlie to photoshop me something awesome. And here it is.
Better. Much more fabulous.
So, in the end, I think that couples of any sexual orientation should be able to enjoy the same rights as heterosexual couples. Love is all you need, no matter what sexual preference you have.
This entry is dedicated to all my LBGT friends and readers. Guys, that rainbow is ever closer. Keep reaching for it. Be fabulous. Always.
Edit: June 26, 2015. The Supreme Court ruled today in favor of Same Sex Marriage. Already people are tweeting about moving to Canada, where’s it’s already legal. I wonder if those people that said they’d set themselves on fire if Same Sex Marriage was legal…already did?
