I didn't ask this question to offend somebody. I do know that marriage is a sacred ritual/ceremony that was given by god for a man and a women only. But yes, everyone deserve equal rights but I guess there are few limitations.
Marriage came about for political and financial reasons first, and was retro-fitted to be justified as somehow "holy" and "religious" to try to force/encourage more people to embrace it.
Equal rights with limitations? That's not equal. Equal rights means everybody is treated the same way. And marriage? It's a civil contract, and not official until the government grants you a license.
Everyone deserves to be happy and you are right with that. I also agree with that but do we need to break God's rule just for us to be happy?
We live in a secular nation not a theocracy, and your God's rules don't govern all of us. I get tired of this non-argument. Secular marriage has been in existence for a long time and non-religious marry.
While marriage equality has been established, in some states, you can be fired from your job for being gay or trans. Sexual orientation and gender identity are still not included in most equal rights laws.
Yup, it's obsolete discussion but it will never go old in many generations.
You're absolutely right, Lisa. There is still much further to go for true equal rights. I'm just glad we can put the marriage one behind us.
