Prop 8 - How Far Will This Go
What is prop 8? The official title: "Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry" Personally I think its the perfect example of how dumb we have become as a nation. We have this mentality that evil people have a desire to be evil as they do in the movies. If it was as simple as it was on t.v. where evil recognizes itself, and just has a desire to be evil, than it would be great. Its really bad however that we have let ourselves become confused with real life and comic books.
Does evil people who do evil things really do it with nothing but intentions to be evil? Of-course not! Everyone naturally has a desire for their own actions to be what's either best for them.
The t.v. good vs. evil mentality works out really well for the government, whom likes to tell us what is evil. Now don't get me wrong, I am not one of those people who thinks everything is a government conspiracy, but I'm not dumb enough to believe that a suicide bomber is killing himself and hundreds more because he was told he was going to paradise with a bunch of virgins. I also happen to live in Jacksonville nc where there are a bunch of marines who can tell me the real story. Anyway the fact is they are retaliating on us for a reason and we (US citizens) are told only half of the story.
I mean whats the more likely motive? Killing a bunch of people to go to paradise, or your baby got their head bashed in with a boot heel? It's common sense.
What I am getting at here is that no one just has a desire to be evil. They perform actions based on there life experience, or they have a mental disability. Now I ask you? More than half of US population has a.d.d. depression, anxiety, or some type of mental disability. So why am I called an asshole when I say that homosexuality is a mental disorder.
homosexuality is obviously un-natural, and obviously not what nature intended. Yet somehow I am treated just as if I am the evil one when I speak against someone who is gay. Oh I'm so sorry, I guess I shouldn't care when my four year old See's two dudes kissing.
It's not if the US will start to allow same sex marriage, its when. All because we are scared to hurt someones feelings. It's o.k. for two dudes to go kissing each other in front of kids but you better not smoke weed! How does that make sense? It's ridiculous!
Do I hate gay people? No, the fact is just like everyone else I have a gay family member whom I love very much, and I love her "partner" but surprise surprise, she has struggled with depression and drug abuse. Just because I dis-agree with someone doesn't mean that I have to hate them.
Instead of wasting our time and money debating about something that we already know is un-natural. How about trying to find the problem and fixing it. If I have a lamp cord that want fit into the wall, should I try to act as if its just the same as the other lamps and jam it into the wall anyway? I would get the sh@t shocked out of me if I did, obviously I would seek the help of an expert or replace the lamp.
So how far are we going to take this political correctness? Should we not discriminate against rapist, and murders? Don't be to quick to laugh at that comment because it's already happened? One of O.J. Simpson's arresting officers made a racist comment 15 years ago, so even though there was all but a signed confession on the crime seen he was let go.
I can be called narrow minded or whatever anyone likes. The fact is, whoever is dumb enough to believe that two guys making out is ok, and I am the asshole for recognizing a problem has my sympathy!
I apologize for using a little common sense.
