A Vote For Values & Morals

I have seen hundreds of polls, articles, and opinions stating that people need to vote against Marriage Equality because it is the moral thing to do. Vote to defend Marriage. I am over it.

First of all, I am a lesbian. Secondly, I have morals and Thirdly, I am for Marriage, I want mine to be legal in all 50 states and recognized federally.

It is appalling to me that people think that just because I am for same sex relationships, I don't have any morals or family values. Nothing can be further from the truth. I have never ever cheated on my wife and`we have two sons together who are outstanding, good boys.

People can pick out examples of immoral behaviors, even criminal behaviors of non-heterosexual people and hold those up and say this is how they behave. However,the same can be done of heterosexuals. Heterosexuals are immoral, without values. Most serial killers are heterosexual males. How many heterosexual State and Federal Congress folks have cheated on their spouses?

They cheer because of executions because God says an "eye for an eye" and "whosoever sheds man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed"

They boo a gay military man, serving in Iraq because God says ......  Well, God doesn't condemn homosexuality, but they think He does

They say that a man who is over $100,000 behind on child support is pro-family because he is anti abortion. 

To quote Jesus "He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone..."

So when someone says "vote to protect Marriage". I say yes, vote to protect marriage to my wife is just as important to protect as (for example) my nephew's marriage to his wife.
When someone says we need to vote to protect morals, I say vote to protect morals...make adultery or divorce illegal.

When someone says that we need to protect our children. There is nothing I agree with more than that. Let's make penalties for child abuse harsher so that people will think twice about hurting children.

A vote for family values and morals is a vote to allow lesbian and gay folks to have equal marriage rights. Believe that!

Why, in the United States of America, why do we still have to fight for equal rights for all?  If I have heard this once, I have heard it a million times:  "I may not agree with what he says, but I will fight for the right for him to say it.  Isn't this the same thing?  I want to live with my wife, have my relationship recognized and honored as equal to heterosexual marriages.  I want our children to be able to have the benefits that other children are afforded.  I don't want my family to have a stigma on it because we are lesbians.  I live in the United States of America... shouldn't I have that right?

Let's get the Respect for Marriage Act passed (repeal the so called Defense of Marriage Act) and the Uniting American Families Act passed to give all Americans full equal rights. It is good, it is moral, it is the right thing to do!
