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?

    When you put up with with any discomfort, whether or
    not this be neck or again soreness, it is most likely you will pay a visit
    to your medical doctor. They could prescribe
    you drugs or advise scans to determine the issue space and see what they can do to avert the pain.

    But this might not be helpful as your initially
    port of contact. It is critical to know of the choice treatment plans that can in fact be
    additional beneficial to curing and avoiding your suffering fairly than the accessible choice
    of suffering killers.

    Record Lesson:

    Chiropractic treatment has been witnessed as a skeptical remedy of back again and neck ache considering the fact that it was very first practiced in the 1960's.
    Quite a few medical doctors tried to get rid of the apply of
    chiropractic and make people conscious of the opportunity hazards.
    Nevertheless, this was proved as bogus info and thus the follow
    of this substitute approach of therapy continued.

    About modern years, the consistent skepticism of chiropractic treatment has
    meant some people have been experienced lengthier ache and even unpleasant surgical
    processes unnecessarily. On the other hand,
    now it has truly been confirmed by lots of doctors, including
    David M. Eisenberg, that some professional medical posts are not based on scientific point
    but are completed so on view.

    With this facts, additional reports were being comprised by chiropractors into modern medication, which meant that
    they came throughout their personal analysis and in point designed astounded discoveries in regards to contemporary medication. It concluded that a lot of clients and sufferers of again and neck soreness were being in reality
    at times becoming ill suggested when going to their medical
    practitioners.

    The large pitfalls of present day medication per year, included
    o Unwanted sum of prescription drugs were remaining prescribed
    ensuing in adverse reactions
    o Superior sum of surgical methods staying encouraged ahead of seeking alternative remedy
    o Hospitalization of these clients are large
    when advisable treatment by medical practitioners for surgical procedures.

    Recommend from a Chiropractor:
    It is nonetheless critical to deal with all bases, see your medical professional when enduring any agony, just consider choice therapies just before opting for
    soreness killers or as a very last resort surgical procedures.
    A superior medical professional will want you to locate
    therapy that fits you just before heading underneath the knife.
