I seriously can’t handle this any more.
I don’t know which is worse, the hypocrisy of people who claim to be for liberty and small government wanting the government to invade peoples’ personal lives and take away their liberties, or the audacity of them for believing that they should be allowed to make decisions affecting the lives of others that will have no effect on their own.
It’s 2012, and we’re still arguing as to whether or not two adults are allowed to get married. The Bible? If we’re going by that, we should probably change our rape laws given that, according to the Bible, if a guy rapes a virgin and gets caught, he has to give the father 50 pieces of silver and then marry the girl he raped.
This isn’t a discussion about gun laws, tax structure, environmental regulations, or foreign policy. It’s not an issue that legitimately has two sides to it. This is a group of people looking at another and saying “no, you are not as good as the rest of us, you do not get our rights.” It’s using religion as immunity from scrutiny, since if these yahoos weren’t holding up their books they’d long ago have been cast into the fire.
It’s one of those rare issues that truly hurts my skull. Even typing this, I’m getting a headache. I’m gonna get a drink.
