We were talking at work about how attitudes that are mainstream and accepted in one era look archaic and ignorant to future generations as times move on.
We agreed that the government’s refusal to allow gay marriage will be looked at in 50 years as being the most embarrassing, prejudicial thing. People in the future will look at what went on, scratch their heads and regard us with quizzical expressions. “Really??‘ they’ll say. “People really thought the fabric of society would tear into shreds if gay couples were allowed to stand in front of a minister/celebrant and say some vows??” We’d have to nod sheepishly and say the old line of, “They were different times back then… ” which we all know is a heap of rubbish but it’s a handy cop-out.
This morning I saw this on Facebook.
I tell you, if being part of a gay couple meant that my kids could be as articulate, intelligent and emotionally mature…. I’d change teams!
Ok, I’m joking… but I simply can’t see why this issue is such a controversial topic for some. It’s really very simple. Just let everybody openly acknowledge who they love and want to be with. Why not?
