I received a comment in regards to Prop 8 and I would like to address this comment since I feel this person(whether they read this or not)deserves an answer from me. The following is their comment italized.
Stop the Hate said...
Protect Marriage:- Outlaw Divorce- Outlaw Single Parents- Outlaw the barren couple- Outlaw the couple past child-bearing yearsVote Yes on 8: Make me suffer for a god, a bible, a fairytale religion I do not believe in - take my marriage license from me and expect me to say 'thank you'
This whole issue is very hot right now and a lot of people feel that they have the right to be happy with whom ever they choose to be with. This is very true. They also feel they have the right to be married to each other, and if they can find someone that will marry them, then again, that's their right. My issue is when this group of people start insisting that the government step in and insist that ALL religions be willing to marry this couple whether they believe in this lifestyle or not. This is when the line has been crossed between your freedom of religion and mine.
My faith(LDS) clearly is against this lifestyle. We do not hate the people living the lifestyle, we just don't condone their actions. Then when the government starts making churches do this and if not a lawsuit arises, that is just plain wrong. This country was founded on religious freedom and to make another religion accept your lifestyle that is contrary to their belief if stepping out of line. This is what Prop 8 is addressing. It's letting the government know that they are making laws that are unconstitutional. And we as a Christian faith are joining other Christians in stating we will NOT tolerate this kind of attitude.
I'm guessing this person who commented does not believe in God. That's ok. I'm not sure if I answered the question or whatever, but this is my belief. And I did try to contact this person through their blog, but apparently they only registed enough to be able to make a comment since I found no blog. Anyway, these are my opinions.
