I Pronounce You Man and Man

by tdixon

Legalizing gay marriage has been in the headlines since 2003 when the Massachusetts Supreme Court legalized it that year, transforming it into a national issue. Certain states recognize and welcome it, while certain states refuse to even move in this direction.

California has recently decided to recognize gay marriage, effective June 17, 2008, as the acceptance of this idea has been increasing steadily, and nearly 51 percent of the population support it, whereas 42 percent oppose it, according to a recent post by the Associated Press.

Of course this movement presents problems for more conservative and traditional Christian viewpoints, who generally feel that marriage should only be between one man and one woman. Some conservative activists may even attempt to reverse this progress.

This may be harder to do than it was in 2003 however because we are now challenged with tough economic times, the Iraq war, race as an issue of concern in the presidential debate, and gas prices. All of these issues are much more dominant in the news and minds of today’s public, so the gay marriage debate could very well be eclipsed.

At the end of the day, what issues should be held as the most important? I suppose this varies for each individual, but how harmful could it really be to allow the gay population the same rights as the majority?
