I Support Gay Love

This past week has been a landmark one in the gay rights movements.  While some states came closer to allowing same sex marriage, prospective Obama-2012 voters lashed out at the President for his lack of support and failed campaign promises to the community.  The week was rounded up by a former football star commenting that allowing gay marriage to happen would create utter "anarchy".

In light of all this, I would like to re-post a portion of a post I wrote a couple of years ago, "Not Special, Just Equal", when I was dissenting with a fellow HuffPo commenter on whether or not gay rights mattered at all.

The end of the post goes to something I have been saying all along - this is not about sexual partners, but LOVE and who a person can and will love.  That seems to get forgotten by the anti-gay rights folks when they are spewing their often ignorant and bigoted hate.

I don't just support gay marriage or, even, all gay rights.  I support GAY LOVE (or, better, LGBT LOVE).

Here is the end of that post, reiterating this very stance:

What bothers me, too, is that in all the hubbub and din, all the people decrying "gay sex" as deviant and gay people as aberrant for engaging in it - just for larks, of course - is the idea of Love.  Being gay isn't just about - isn't really at all about - who you have sex with or want to have sex with.  It's about who you can and will Love.  Yes, homosexuals are sexually attracted to the same sex.  But do not forget, that attraction - just like with straight people - can and does lead to more than just meaningless sex.  It becomes relationships, it becomes lasting partnerships, and long-term affairs.  It becomes Love.

And that is what this battle is really about.  No one can choose who they fall in love with - not straight people, gay persons, bi individuals, or anything in between.  And, therefore, it is not a choice for the lesbian who falls in love with the woman who becomes her partner of 20 years or the gay man who falls head over heels for the person he knows is his soulmate, no more than it is a choice for the woman who marries her high school sweetheart or the man who rekindles a romance with the woman he never got over from college.  We don't choose who we love...love has it's own agenda.

The most beautiful thing about this is that Love always wins.  It will prevail; it always does.  And gay people will win their rights.  I guarantee it.

In the meantime, to all the naysayers, I say think long and hard about the reasons you are against homosexuals or gay rights/marriage.  Remember what this country stands for, and take some time to re-read the teachings of the man you base your religion on.  You have a "choice", now - and the choice is to choose acceptance, understanding, and compassion over denial, ignorance, and hatred.  You like to ask, "What would Jesus do?" and so I posit that to you now - what, indeed?

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    When ever making a new kitchen or renovating an existing
    kitchen, it is highly recommended and highly recommended to keep an open mind and find out everything possible - by the end of the process, it
    will definitely pay off. Here are some common myths about the design process as well as its results:

    "You can certainly add later" -the best planning
    is to take into account and add all the characteristics of the kitchen at the planning
    and as well as or renewal stages, and not at a later stage.
    For example, although you may are not thinking about putting in a flat screen TV SET in the kitchen space or if you do not currently have a water dispenser, the best thing is to put together for future installation of these
    and plan power, communication and water items and keep the choices open up.
    Also, since the kitchen is supposed to provide us
    for quite some time, it is highly recommended to measure all existing ergonomic solutions such
    as drawer drawers, cabinet style dishwashers, and so forth Even if you are young and fit at the moment, these additions will
    prove themselves Mobility in the future. Either way, if you prefer to deal with kitchen planning in stages - one aspect or specific area at a time - make certain to plan carefully
    so that everything will fit in stylistic and functional harmony when the kitchen will finally be complete.

    " I do not have so many things" - whether we like it or not, your kitchen has gigantic potential for ruining
    due to multitude of items trapped in it, which is
    why space is sufficient to store, This means that there is a
    relative absence of overhead storage cabinetry, so it is important
    to balance function and style.

    "Bigger Better" - Your kitchen space is large and you need
    a huge kitchen, but then you will find yourself going
    back and out from one machine to another, and this situation, preferably in the look stages, consider adding
    a job sink beside the refrigerator or Reduce the need to cross these
    distances, and there is certainly that these upgrades mean additional costs, and if your budget
    is limited, it is obviously well worth considering a compact kitchen.

    "I do not desire a designer " -not every kitchen design project requires a designer, but many individuals need someone to help us see the overall
    picture and regulate the work. Renting consult with an architect or designer does involve quite a lot of cost, but in the long run it is approximately conserving money and time.
    Although you may have a very clear picture of what you want,
    do not save the expense of a designer as it can best fulfill ideal.
    Proper and efficient planning of your kitchen and coordination between all the many professionals included in building
    your kitchen by a designer can keep your project within it
    is as well as budget, save you unnecessary money and unneeded
    problems and particularly keep your sanity.
