For those who oppose same-sex marriage for religious purposes, I remind you that the greatest sin is to judge someone. Jesus loved people; he did not cast stones. In this time in our country, when I am so very proud to have an African-American and a female battling for a chance to be president, you would think that diversity would be a full circle. Sadly, living in the valley, I am reminded of how ignorant people can be in regards to diversity, and as a Christian I am even further saddened to see the Bible used as a convenient weapon.
Who cares if two people want to marry? What business is it of everyone? If you want to save the sanctity of marriage, improve the 51 percent divorce rate and close down the all-night wedding chapels in Las Vegas. When our children are studying history 20 years from now, I am going to be ashamed how disgustingly we treated gays and lesbians, just as my parents now look back in disgust at how we treated minorities during World War II or the Civil Rights movement. Allowing one group to marry and denying another is textbook discrimination and a violation of civil rights.
