North Carolina Bans Gay Marriage—Why Would A Public That So Often Has So Little Self-Respect Have Much Care For The Rights Of Others?
Voters in North Carolina have made gay marriage in that state illegal by approving an amendment to the state constitution that will ban such marriages.
This was a cruel act by North Carolina voters. Life is brutally short and people should be allowed to live in marriage with the person they most value.
If I had it within my power, I would annul the marriages and break apart the families of the people who voted for this amendment. I would ask them how they like it to be denied the relationships they hope for with the people they love.
Then, after a time, the folks who opposed the amendment could vote on if those marriages and families should be restored. That seems fair.
Why is such basic thing as the right to get married is up for a public vote in the first place?
Where was the “get the government out of my life” crowd on this issue?
Gay marriage is going to be the law of the land sooner or later in this nation.
However, until that time it seems that the rights of gay people will be up for approval by a public that in so many cases is unable to maintain steady relationships and unable to treat children well.
It is no surprise that a public that is so often incapable of self-respect, and so often incapable of respect for the people they say they most value, would have when given the choice little respect for the basic humanity of others.
