Seriously.

It’s time to end this marriage equality nonsense in America. How about that Declaration of Independence, US? “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal and that they are endowed by their creator with certain, unalienable rights, and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” That pretty much says it all for me. Whether you personally/religiously/morally agree with it or not, it’s time to recognize that a person’s right to marry another person is not something that can or should be legislated. Looking back, do we think it was just or right to prevent slaves from marrying? Or to outlaw interracial marriages? I guarantee you that in a hundred years, the world will look back at these debates and think, “What?! Our ancestors were barbarians!”

This post was inspired by the following two links, one disturbing, one awesome (See if you can guess which is which!) :
