Thought DOMA


I don't like how the gay rights issue is being framed.  I hate hearing, "oh well the gays are doing this so much faster than other groups."

I don't care.  Weren't those supposed to be less enlightened times?  Yes. Yes they were. And the biggest lesson out of that was?  All people deserve love and respect and the same rights.

There should be no controversy. Religion punishes in the afterlife and preaches the universal value of respect on this plane.

And that is ultimately the point.  If you were to occupy the highest levels of respect for your fellow man, your actions would not be hindered by the fear that a higher authority than you will do something outside your control.  No, you live the life of a good human and you give them more than you have had.

Period.
