This is not the country I grew up in!

This administration and its issues are self-serving, at best! If something affects them, it changes their view of that issue. Case in point – Dick Cheney’s stand on gay marriage. Only because his daughter is gay does he take a stand. If she were “straight”, he would stand side-by-side with his “Commander in Chief” to make sure an amendment to the Constitution be installed to ban gay marriages. Religion is being cited for this amendment when in reality it has nothing to do with it. These are “civil unions” – the government has nothing to do with the church’s law!

Speaking of which, according to MY religion, the only reason for marriage is to procreate! In other words, any couple (be it male & female, or otherwise) is not “married” in the eyes of the Lord if they don’t or expect not to have children! Which puts thousands upon thousands of couples in “marriage limbo!” Apparently then, people who marry later in life who can no longer have children should not be allowed to marry either. Where does this end?

We need to allow the rights of some to become the rights for ALL! That is what this country is supposed to be about. The Constitution calls for EVERYONE to ENJOY EQUALLY THE RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES OF CITIZENSHIP AS ESTABLISHED BY LAW.
