Yesterday while talking about politics, Steve said something that gave me a great idea.
Steve was talking about how he was driving in Tacoma and saw a group of people protesting against gay marriage in the pouring rain. He said that their protesting isn’t going to change his opinion and that they should just go home because they probably have something better to do then stand outside holding their rain soaked signs.
This is a great point; do the protesters really not have anything better to do? Don’t they have a family that needs to be taken care of, a job that requires attention; shouldn’t they focus on their health and well being then trying to “save the institution of marriage?”
These people are going out of their way to keep marriage between a man and a woman when in reality, it won’t affect the way they live their lives in any way. On the other hand, what are the effects of them protesting? Don’t they need to pay more attention to more important things like have a direct impact on their lives like bills, their children, or even relationships with their spouses?
Here is the reality, a good amount of American people believe that being gay and getting married to a person of the same gender is not a bad thing despite what some religious texts say and I would agree.
Before we let people protest, they should evaluate their lives; if they show that they can handle their work load, have a good relationship with their family, and are in decent health, then they can protest.
