Our Marriage is Now Pointless!

If the Gays can do it...

So I'm sure that most of you have heard that the great state of California has refused to be as backwards and asinine as the rest of this great country. I mean they've decided to allow gay couples to marry (gasp!) legally.

Today I heard some Conservative Radio Airbag complaining about this, and all of his intellectual listeners were calling to complain about what this does to the institution of marriage. Evidently my marriage isn't worth the paper our license is printed on anymore.

I listened to this ranting and raving for nearly twenty-five minutes while I drove across town today. Why? I wanted to hear a good reason for this insanity. I didn't. Apparently you have to be born with a certain gene that enables that sort of senseless bigotry.

O.K., why does the fact that these gay couples are allowed to wed, who obviously love each other enough to commit to a long-term monogamous relationship, erode the sanctity of your heterosexual relationship.

Up until a few days ago gay weddings were illegal, and yet 50% of all marriages in this country end in divorce.

So how sacred is your marriage? Doesn't that really depend on the two people involved? The way I see it my marriage is between my wife and me. Some of you may include god, which is fine. But other than those two (or three) people, the rest of the world shouldn't really matter.

Why does it bother people that gays want to be more like them? Maybe they secretly want to be more like the gays? That's sounds like something Freud would say, and I personally think he was a nut-job, but that's another story all together.

So, I would just like to say:

Why can't we all just get along.

25 minutes? Seriously? Get yourself a CD player man.

I never listen to talk radio. Those people (on either side of the fence) are NUTS!!

I've never understood the "it lessens the institution of marriage" argument. No one can seem to explain what that means, which indicates it's a hollow argument at best.
