We, as a nation, have found ourselves in the middle of another civil rights movement. Gay marriage is exactly that. A right. To love and be loved. And to have that love legally recognized.
You're allowed to disagree. You're allowed to vote according to your religious beliefs. But, whether or not you believe God's law is the ultimate law, laws cannot be passed according to the Bible. It's unconstitutional.
As a country, we're never all going to agree. We're too diverse for that. But that's the beauty of it. If you're a woman, if you're black, if you're gay, you can vote.
You can't deny someone a basic right that everybody else is entitled to. Not for their sex, not for their race. And not for their sexual preferences.
For the record, I'm not gay. But I cried tears of joy the days it became legal.
