“It’s a question of love”

12 Nov

A most sensitive and heartfelt article – Olbermann : Gay Marriage is a question of love, was pointed out by Closetalk on Sam’s blog.

Rakesh explained the difference between Marriage and Domestic Partnerships etc. etc. to me the other day. My viewpoints that were expressed a few days ago, are beginning to change. We do not need to find another name for the institution. Yes, we deserve equal rights. And the Church cannot hijack marriage, especially since it’s becoming so obsolete anyway. How long will it’s unlawful dominance last anyway!
In the aftermath of Prop. 8 vote, one can see that it is pretty much evident… California is in fact ready for gay marriage.

    Another name or not .. whatever its called, it has to be the same for all couples.

    I am glad you are moving towards that. I am really happy to see people who actually can change their opinion after giving the thing some thought. Yay for unsungpsalm! XD

    Haha! Thanks Vlad!

    Of course I have obviously full support for Gay Marriage, for every conceivable reason! It’s just that I thought that if it’s the word “Marriage” that they’re so sensitive about, then we could call it something else. As long as it was exactly the same as Marriage. I suppose I still do hold on to that point of view. The point is that I’d rather there was SOMETHING that gave us equal rights, as opposed to nothing at the moment. What it was called hardly matters, as long as it’s the same as marriage. Because if it was simply the desire to call it “marriage” that delayed it by 2 years, it’s like having your cake and eating it to. At least at the moment.
    In some 2 years, Cal. would be in a position to legalise Gay Marriage without much of a fight. But until then, having a proxy for the same should suffice.

    But as I said… it seems that California is (though marginally) ready to allow Gay marriage already!
