Gay Marriage and the Constitution

A Copy sent to the Minnesota Governor and Vice Governor on 14 May 2013: It should be unconstitutional for a handful of people, in a state or federally, to decide on issues of morality over an entire state. Especially in recent days, it’s been shown that the various governments of the United States are not a good representation of the people of the states and the country. Who do these handfuls of people think that they are to decide morality? This vote could change morality issues for other states while taking the right away from your own voters. Please do the right thing and explain that you want your voters to make this decision and Do Not Sign the gay marriage bill.

  1. “Seeing it on television, the movies, in public, jobs being forced to hire based on your sexual wishes ”

    First of all, too bad. You are not free from seeing that people you disagree with exist.

    Secondly, jobs are forced to hire regardless of sexual orientation.

      Jobs should not be forced to hire based on your sexual practices. Also, the FCC is supposed to be watching the airwaves to make sure that certain things aren’t put on television or radio, but they have completely failed our nation in the past many years. Immorality should be one of those issues. You can put your demented likes and dislikes on HBO because people have to choose to buy that trash, but there is no reason for putting it on prime-time TV where people have no choice as to what shows up at a moments notice.

        Loving someone of the same gender isn’t immoral.

          There is an enormous difference between love and sex, and homosexuality is about sex, not love. If it was about love, it would be called homoloveability, not homosexuality. Love is not immoral, but homosexuality is! You can love anyone that you want without getting married and without being immoral. The entire gay marriage, gay rights issue is about being gay, and being gay is about sex, and nothing more.

            The homosexuals I know disagree with you, and I am more likely to believe them.

              You have done little to explain why I’m wrong, or what your gay friends have to say that may change my opinion of their thoughts. You have continuously tried to tell me that my freedom of speech isn’t as important as yours, and I disagree 100%. I’ve even allowed your comments to be posted in the respect of the freedom of speech, though I have no reason to believe anything but the opposite of what you say. If you have a point which explains your gay friends feelings, make it. I don’t change my mind easily, and I sure don’t change it without intelligent reasoning. Explain your position in further detail or stop arguing with me. If you don’t have an argument other than ‘gay people want to be treated equally (which they are if they don’t raise the ‘I’m Gay’ flag), or ‘it’s normal or natural for them to be gay’, or your comments about ‘it’s not about religion’, or that ‘it’s moral’, I’m not on board with you. Whatever your comments, answer the question “Why do I feel that way and how can I enforce my point to make it more believable by others, including the author of this blog post”.

  2. The majority of people cannot decide on the morality for the minority, particularly when that morality has no basis in ‘harm’, only their interpretation of their religion.

    “Please do the right thing and explain that you want your voters to make this decision”

    The voters can make the decision.

    If they want to get married, they can. If they don’t want to, they don’t have to. Ta-da.

      Morality is in fact, based on what the majority believes, not based on what the minority wants to do. If that was the case, murderers could do what they want to, child molesters could do what they want to…basically, laws are based on two basic things: safety and morality. They don’t decide to create laws to collect money. They are supposed to decide to create laws to protect people from the things that others want to do, or may carelessly do, that may injure the people in a specific way. Many of these laws are intended to protect children from a variety of immoral issues, and I believe that this is one of those cases. Until I hear a good argument as to why this issue is based on a moral cause, I will forever consider it an immoral issue which is based on an immoral act.
      My e-mail to the Minnesota Governor was based on the fact that 500 people (give or take) should not be making morality decisions for millions of people, and that it is for the millions to have their say in the matter. There were some serious controversies as to the state of MN’s policies with regards to the ballot measure on the ‘Marriage is between a man and a woman’, and should have become a vote of the people, not the politicians. Most politicians are incompetent to represent the people, and should not be making those decisions, even if they make other decisions, that they do a poor job of doing.
      I have approved your comment since I believe that you have the right of freedom of speech, but I also have the right to do the same and have stated that I will always vote against the things that I feel are immoral or should be illegal. If I disagree with something that you have said, I will say it. As long as you have an argument that includes some intelligence, I will listen, but you have a huge argument to prove that this issue should be made into law. As with many laws on the books (especially stuff from California), I would be more likely to say ‘OK, I don’t believe that way, but the majority of people want this’. Until then, I must argue for what I think is good, just and right.
      Part of this issue that I hate, is that rights have been and will be given to homosexuals that not even I have as a Military Veteran. Continue your fight as you wish, but I will be doing the same.
      Thanks for your comment.

        Except where what the minority wants to do impacts no one but the specific individuals involved of their own free will. Which is the case in gay marriage, and not in murder.

          In this case, the minority will impact ALL persons within the United States, and the world. Seeing it on television, the movies, in public, jobs being forced to hire based on your sexual wishes (the military is already being forced to do that)…will all impact how children and adults are forced to deal with the issue. Nobody should be forced to deal with it by living as a person, but it is being shoved down our throats. Enough is enough. If love was the issue, there wouldn’t be an issue, but it is about love based on the sexual act, i.e. it is based on the sexual act.

      If you keep your morality, or immorality to yourself, than the majority shouldn’t have any affect on it, but it is a public issue and affects the entire population of our planet. Do the right thing and put Pandora back in the box.
