Khalou,
There are so many reasons to agree with you but here is yet another: people are what they are and discover themselves as life moves on. Gay people discover themselves often when they are young, when they are teenagers, when the hormones flow and sexual energy is added to love's inherent place in the human condition. When you tell young people that their honest emotions tied to such good feelings as love are bad, you can destroy the young person's self esteem and warp his or her existence. Why do it? It is so much better for all of us to have happy and well adjusted young people who will grow up to be productive happy citizens and neighbors and co-workers, honest citizens, courageous soldiers, and occasionally great leaders. We must do what we can to make all young people feel that their honest selves are to be respected and cherished. When I hear that 60% of the population is against gay marriage, I think 40% is in favor. Thats 120,000,000 people. That's quite a vote of confidence in love and truth. There is a chance for us.
Thanks for your excellent post.
T.
