My Blog posts usually consist of what I am doing, where I have been, where I live, my family, friends, pets, craft and collecting. It is a nice little life that I live but the world is happening all around me and I do take notice. So I have decided that if I feel strongly enough about something I will put it out there. You may not agree with me and I may even offend some people but I do believe we are all entitled to an opinion.
Before I start I need to tell you a couple things-I am a heterosexual and although I have no religious beliefs I do live by the alleged 10 Commandments and respect other peoples right to have a belief in God, Buddha or any other Deity.
Watch the news every day and soak in the Death, Hunger, Greed, Murder, Natural disasters, Man made disasters and every other horrible thing that has happened to one person or a thousand just on one day. Yes, there are the good news stories but they can't possibly balance out all the bad news that we see.
Now look at just one thing our Australian Politicians are arguing over and have been for quite a while now. Same Sex Marriages. Meanwhile there are bad things happening out there to good and innocent people that need to be addressed.
Using their Religious beliefs as an excuse for not allowing Same Sex marriages is just no excuse at all when they make decisions all the time that must go against all the bible teaches them. They participate in sending men and women to war, we are allowed to divorce, abortions are legal.........need I go on? When a politician has to make a decision the questions that said politician should ask are: Will it make peoples lives better? Will the world really end as we know it if I say yes? The question they shouldn't ask is: How will this affect my popularity with the voters?
Yes it is also a tradition that only heterosexual couples marry but Traditions aren't necessarily the right way of doing things or even a good thing and can be changed. All that is being asked is that prejudice to same sex couples be removed and everyone have the same rights to the way they live their lives including marriage.
If we allow two people who love one another to stand before friends and family and make a loving and socially recognized commitment to each other and their relationship........Will the world really end????????.
