I think a few of these people are getting marriage and holy matrimony confused. “Marriage is not Holy Matrimony. Holy matrimony is religious. It happens in the Church. It’s sanctity is defined and can be defended. Marriage is a social and legal contract that provides rights, obligations, privileges, and protections that are not afforded to those who are unwed. Unlike holy matrimony, marriage is a civil right. To deny civil rights to our own citizens is, quite frankly, the more un-American thing we can do.” I don’t believe in close-mindedly insulting entire groups with differing beliefs. I’ve seen so many statuses/ photos/ links that say something along the lines of: “OMG, The Bible says not to have same-sex relations, but it also says x, y, z and that is considered okay by today’s standards, THEREFORE religious people against marriage equality are so dumb!” It makes you seem just as “ignorant.” This is how I see it… religious groups are being framed in a sense of not being accepting of other beliefs. It’s great that media directed toward youth is advocating tolerance, but I believe that it is wrong to be indirectly targeting groups that have beliefs that don’t line up with the “cool, open-minded way to think.” People need to get informed before going about hating on different groups… and that goes for BOTH marriage equality supporters and religious members. I’m Catholic and I believe in marriage equality. The unalienable rights of a U.S. citizen in addition to the separation of church and state are two political ideologies of the United States that can be used to justify the legalization of same-sex marriage. According to the law system of our country, I do not see why marriage equality between all genders is not allowed. It seems perfectly legal to me.
