The Picture Sweeping the Web – Andy O Commentary
More and more you are seeing the above image on Facebook and other social media sites popping up. This symbol is meant to signify unity for the equality of all when it comes to marriage rights.
There is so much polarization on the issue. The definition of marriage being between a man and woman or marriage between partners of the same gender seems to be the biggest topic of the day.
Personally, I just tend to think it’s not much of my business. But, there does seem to be an imbalance when it comes to “equality”. Why wouldn’t people who have spent a lifetime as partners be denied the right to make life and death decisions? Why should someone lose everything when their partner dies? Why do gay and lesbian people continue to be the lepers of modern society? I don’t agree with all of their lifestyle choices, but then again, I know plenty of “normal” people who have personality traits and ways to live I disagree with too.
There was a time not too long ago that black people were not allowed to drink from the same water fountain as white people. I personally hope that we can look at an example from our past and worry about much bigger things than who’s marrying who in the future.
