Thoughts on marriage and same sex marriage

Winnipeg - Thursday, September 4, 2003 - by: Cassandra Loiselle



I have just finished reading the article on same sex MARRIAGE (I use the term deliberately here) and wanting to have them "come up with some other name for it"




I'm shocked and offended! The only thing that comes to mind when I read this story is racism in the south - well they don't have to be our "slaves" anymore, but they can't have any rights either. Now I know that there are people who are going to think that this example is a bit drastic but you have to sit and ponder it. Right now gay and lesbian couples are discriminated against because they do not have the right to marry each other, but giving them the right to "woolly wigit" (a general fluff term used to describe things that don't exist) which comes with all the same rights as being married, but not being "married" but rather being "woolly wigited" is still keeping them segregated and separated from "us" - you know the us that are heterosexual and married!




Marriage is marriage - it is a sacred bond between two people who would be willing to lie down their lives to save the other person, be it a man and a women, a man and a man, or a women and a women. Let us consider these two thoughts, giving homosexuals the same rights as heterosexual couples but not calling it marriage is no different from what currently exists, and lastly something for ever person out there to think about - love is love, in any culture, any language, any shape or form love is love:


"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where, I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I know no other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep it is your eyes that close."
