I'm a big fan of Facebook, and I'm on it more than I probably should be. And many of my "friends" on it aren't afraid to voice their opinions on various topics, and marriage equality was definitely one of the hot topics this week.
I know that some of my family and friends, especially those who are very religious (ironically) are opposed to marriage equality. Marriage equality isn't the first to be controversial, as this picture proves.
I understand where those opposed to same-sex marriage are coming from. They feel that God's intentions for union was between a man and a women.
I get it. However, what loving God would create people who are lesbian, gay, transsexual, or transgender, and not want for them to be loved and happy?
Who am I to decide how other people should live? Who am I to judge others based on who they love? Would I wish for others to be miserable, angry, depressed, lonely, or unloved? What kind of Christian (or Catholic in my case) would I be? Is it really our place to instill the values of our faith upon others who probably don't share our belief systems?
Thank you for letting me say my peace about the issue. Love is Love!
