President Obama Takes A Stand On Gay Marriage

Today was a momentous day.  The President Of The United States of America said that “same sex marriage” should be allowed.  The President says actual laws should be left up to the states.  Still, it is a historic day for a group of people that just want to be treated equally.  More after the jump.

I recently started working on a blog in favor of ‘the golden rule’ which is “do unto others as you would have them do to you”.  It seems like all laws, commandments and even rules can be boiled down to the fact that you should treat people the way you would want to be treated.  Homosexuality, in most cases, is a fact of nature; it appears in humans and animals.  Even if you believe homosexuality is a ‘choice’, how can you deny any human the basic rights that all of us have?  We only get one spin on this planet and I’m not going to deny anybody’s happiness while I’m here.

Yesterday, a death in the news made this issue all the more relevant.  Maurice Sendak, author of the wildly loved childrens book “Where the Wild Things Are” passed away.  He had a gay “partner” for 50 years.  Can you imagine the joy this man brought to, and will continue to bring to generations and generations of children?  Why should he ever be denied the opportunity to be happy himself?

The number one threat to marriage isn’t gay marriage, it’s divorce.  Committed couples of all types should be able to try to make a go of it; it just doesn’t affect me or you.

Sorry haters, but the President gets a ‘win’ on this one.
