Historic Day

I feel is would be remiss of me to not post about the Supreme Court decision on gay marriage. It made me so happy to open my facebook and see all the posts. I don't think I can put it into words. Now there are equal marriage rights for all.

I know a lot of religious people are upset about it. However, I know that it is prohibited by certain groups. I think that what needs to be understood is that everyone can get a civil union that gives all equal rights, but the holy sacrament is part of the church. I believe in the separation of church and state. We do not live in a christian nation therefore rules that apply to christians to not need to be forced onto those who are not.

Overall I am so happy that the gay couples I know that now have equal rights across the US. However, as some have pointed out, LGBT+ issues are not over with this and there are many other issues. Such as job discrimination, abuse, youth homelessness, and conversion therapy that still need to be dealt with.


  1. Honestly, I'm so happy I could cry. You are so right about the state being separate from the church. And you are also very correct about the issues not being over. In fact, I fear there may be a backlash. I hope everyone stays safe. Gay rights are human rights, as gay people are human beings and deserve the same rights as anyone else. It's about time.

    1. There were definitely moments when I almost cried. I am worried as well about people. I totally agree that the issue of gay marriage is much more human rights an nothing to do with morality. A religion will have its own view on what is right and wrong(like drinking alcohol) but should not enforce their religions beliefs on those who do not belong to that religion.
