If you believe gay marriage is wrong, then don’t marry a gay person. Simple as that.

My tax dollars hard at work. Here’s a flash for you: gay people are no less human than straights.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” The Declaration of Independence.

What gives anyone the right to define “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” for another, as long as they aren’t hurting anyone else? The Republican Party says gay marriage is a threat to American families, but it never specifies how it’s a threat – because it’s not. It’s part of who we are, whether they like it or not, and when you kill part of who you are, you kill yourself. God made gay people, too. Who are you to judge what God and people who are born gay have decided that this particular set of circumstances is what is required to further their spiritual growth? Condemn not, lest you become what you condemn. In all thy getting, GET UNDERSTANDING.

Republicans claim they act the way they do toward their homosexual brothers and sisters on religious grounds based upon Christian principles as representatives of a government in which there is supposed to be separation of church and state. First, Jesus made no exceptions when He told us to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, minds and souls, and our neighbors AS OURSELVES. Second, live your spiritual convictions in your own life and try to resist the urge to inflict them on others. Third, until W., marriage was administered under STATE laws – not federal; butt out.

Marriage is firstly a civil and contractual matter in America. Period.

Onward, Joe Mustich, CT Justice of the Peace, USA.

And the marriage cops need to just retire and play some bingo…in the middle of the nearest river….
