Will I be able to get married on day?
During today's society and government issues, people are not thinking much about the idea that two guys getting married. The most the government is now trying to figure out and help in is the economy which is the number on thing right now for the government, also the issues of medicare, and also issues of what is going on with relationships between nations. The most I have heard about in the news about this is the last states that have gotten it through, which is the most states from the north east. I was wondering on how funny this was because of the fact the the states in the North East were mostly into the religious freedom. The north east was the most religious part of this country. As time went by people starting diverging into more into the country and well now a days the most religious parts of the country would be the parts of the great plains and some parts of the Rockie Mountains. The places where there are a lot of cities and lots of different kinds of people, there people are more tolerant, and more open minded to these kinds of thoughts and these kinds of ideas of gay marriage. But no a days the new generation of people are now becoming more open minded. The new kids are being more educated, and being less ignorant, and becoming much more mature then our generation. After time people become more and more educated of things and mistakes and errors people have done in the past.
"Gay rights takes on new steam this week across the country as tens of thousands of gay activists marched on Washington Sunday. What's unique to this march is that more than 100 religious leaders endorsed the National Equality March on behalf of gay rights. For some religious leaders, the journey for gay rights was a step of faith from bigotry, to gay activism.
I'm learning more about gay rights right now, and this blog post has taught me a lot in this matter. I was researching this question online and trying to find more information and updates on this topic and I came across this article about gay rights and religion. This caught my attention because it had the word gay and religion in one sentence but without a word that separates them or a word that makes them totally opposites. Instead it said that religion was actually helping out for gay rights.
The quote I choose here is basically saying that all this time of fighting and all this time of being ignorant and being more of the closed minded and reserved conservative America, that people are finally coming together and starting to understand what it actually means to come together and be one whole. People are seeing the waste of time fighting it when at the end they can coexist in peace and without any issues. Its making the future of America much more brighter for everyone including the LGBT community.
I think this is a strong quote because it makes me think that a lot of things do change if you fight for you word if you fight for your rights. People that do not give up are people that can keep on going and going until they make it, and the LGBT community has never stopped fighting for their rights and for their voice to be heard and to be treated as equal citizens of America. Now I think that maybe if this happens I'm wondering whats going to happen on the next congress votes for gay marriage in each state? Will people start voting for gay marriage and will this all come to an end finally? Or will they keep on voting against and be more conservative?
“I think he has a lot on his plate,” said Rachael McIntosh, 25, of Worcester, Mass. “But I’d hoped we’d be a priority.” Ms. McIntosh raised a sign that read “Nobel Peace Prize. Earn It!”
this news article on the NY Times also came to my attention, and it was about the gay march on Washington D.C that took place a couple of days ago. In this March people from all corners of the country came to give support and help out wit the gay or now known as the civil rights movement. I think that in this quote specifically it states what our governmnet is doing for us. In this quote a lady states the the president has a lot on his plate as in we are in times that are economy is low and our money has low value, and that people are loosing their jobs and everything. But along side that there is now the issue of gay rights that he has to see through because in these times of hardships people know that the government should be there for us. Now in the quote it also says that we want to make sure that we are not being forgotten by the president and if we are not getting put aside and ignored. On this day people marched to go give the president a wake up call to tell him we are still here and we are not seeing any progress and we are waiting for something to happen.
Now what I'm wondering is what is the president going to do now? Because in his speech on the march he said that he is on top of this and he is going to help us get our rights he is going to help us with eliminating don't ask don't tell on the Military, and he will be focusing on making us equal to everyone else in this country. He will help to eliminate discrimination by passing the law that will eliminate that in work and anywhere so life for LGBT people would be much easier and equal.
