It's All the Same Love

Months back, there seemed to be some sort of trend with conservative bloggers coming out (see what I did there?) and admitting they were against gay marriage and the legalization of it, as if it takes some kind of bravery to admit that you're prejudice.  #SorryI'mNotSorry. 
 
I don't like to talk politics much, and certainly not on this blog, but today?  I'm telling you that I am for marriage.  And to me - that includes gay marriage, because you know gay people are just that...people.  So their marriage?  It's just marriage.
 
Yesterday, the Supreme Court (or the SCOTUS, as my law nerd husband likes to call it) started hearing arguments pertaining to gay marriage.  And I hope and pray to God (because newsflash: liberals can believe in Him, too) that they do the right thing (and I do mean morally, not on the political spectrum) and change the world as we know it by allowing everyone in love to get married as they wish, to whom they wish.  (What's funny is, being that I'm not gay, it wouldn't really change my world all that much - a fact that makes it all the more confusing to me why people care who other people marry.)
 

 
This song, and the meaning behind it, made me fall in love with Macklemore.  I hope it makes you feel something too.

Everyone has different views on the topic and being liberal (I'm assuming- I have not read your blog for very long), I would think that you don't like people saying rude comments about your beliefs. So me being conservative, I take offense to you saying that because someone admits they don't believe in same-sex marriage than they are prejudice. I don't believe in same sex marriage- but have gay friends. Two different things. The bottom line is you have every right to believe what you believe and to write on here what you want, but just saying comments like that is what gives liberals a bad rap.

The video and song are beautiful. Personally, I fail to see how who someone else marries directly affects me. It doesn't.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and the video.

I think that when it comes down to it, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. An opinion is just that though, and no one should have to live their life based on someone else's. I am proudly gay and happy. Thanks for sharing in such a public space because it means a lot to people who may not have support.

I don't think it's rude to say that someone who opposes gay marriage is prejudiced. Being prejudiced does not necessarily mean that you hate another group of people; it means that you don't think they should be treated the same as other people simply because of their membership in that group, particularly when the characterization used to single them out is something they don't control and can't change. If you believe that gay couples are not entitled to the same legal rights and privileges as straight couples because they're gay, you have a prejudice against gay people. It might be because of your religion or because gay sex grosses you out or because you were raised that way - it doesn't matter. Now certainly, believing gay people have the right to exist and being willing to be friends with them makes a person less prejudiced that otherwise, but it's all a matter of degree. Just because the label makes a person defensive doesn't mean it doesn't fit.

I LOVE this post and 100% agree with you!! My coworker and I had a huge conversation about how we REALLY hope that ALL marriages will become legal! Look at how many marriages FAIL between hetrosexual people, couples who get married after days, weeks or months of dating. I think it is sad that gay marriage is not recognized as marriage!
