Give Me A Break!

Conservative religious and political leaders in Boston claim their religious rights are being violated by Massachusett's allowing of gay marriage. ''Here in Massachusetts, activist judges struck a blow to the foundation of civilization: the family,'' Republican governor Mitt Romney, a likely presidential candidate, told an applauding crowd of about 1,000 people, some of whom responded with ''Amen.'' GIVE ME A BREAK!!

I don't know of any gay man or woman that believes someone cannot worship the way they want! Legalization of gay marriage does not stop anyone from practicing his/her beliefs the way he/she wants. And what's even sadder is eight states will vote in November on constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriage, following 20 states that have already approved bans. Prompted by a ruling from its highest court, Massachusetts legalized same-sex marriage in 2004. Massachusetts lawmakers are expected to consider a proposed constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage on November 9.

You don't have to like gay marriage. You don't even have to like gay people! However, they pay the same taxes and provide to this society just like anyone else. And gays should be entitled to the same rights as any other citizen.
