The 21st Century’s “Colored Folk”

CNN.com – Ohio governor signs bill making state 38th to ban gay marriage – Feb. 6, 2004

We look back at the ridiculous laws separating people with different color shades and say, ?how could that have happened?? There are commercials teaching children, and especially parents, that hate is taught and that it shouldn?t be tolerated. In WWII soldiers who volunteered to die for their country were only allowed to hold jobs as cooks, etc. because of their skin color (excuse given? ?they have poor night vision?). Children were kept out of schools and opportunities were not based on merit, but birth origin.

When are we going to look back at these ridiculous laws and attitudes against Gays and Lesbians, who are treading an up-hill battle against those who hate, (and hold many of these beliefs based on religion) and wonder what we were thinking?

Family isn?t just about marriage. How many marriages end in divorce? THE BEAVER CLEAVER FAMILY IS A PIPE DREAM. Married couples are reaping the benefit of nothing except higher taxes, higher lawsuit liability and high divorce rates. Two people must work in the family to survive financially. June can no longer stay home, clean house, cook dinner, and meet Ward at the door and take his coat when he gets home from work.

I believe that this law is based on something else ( hint, hint, religion). For example, this quote could very easily be changed:

Marriage is an essential building block of our society, an institution we must reaffirm??

Just replace Marriage with Religion.

Enough of my rant for now, I am late for work.
