I support human rights.
Let's start with the basics: LGBTQ people are people- people being the operative word. People= human- so they by virtue of being human deserve the same rights and protections as any other individuals.
I live in a very conservative town. The majority of people in this town are people who are dedicated to Christianity. To be emphatically clear, I take no issue with that, as long as their faith is their faith and it doesn't become something they require others to abide by. Many Christians assert that the bible says that marriage is defined as a promise between one woman and one man (we can debate what the bible says about marriage in another post). This is what leads us to one problem:
A significant percentage of people in the country, do not believe in the bible as a source of faith or a guide for moral living, as a significant portion of people do not garner their ethics or morals from the bible asking them to follow its teachings regarding marriage makes no sense.
One of the best things about the US is that the US is not a Christian nation, we are not a Jewish nation, or a Islamic Nation. Our country was founded on the ideals of separation of church and state, where citizens are guaranteed the freedom of and from religion, therefore for laws to be written and instituted based on a religious text is in direct contradiction to our nations founding principles.
Whether or not two adults are permitted to marry in no way lessens the value and the importance of any other marriage.
Back to point-
LGBTQ people do not need special privileges or rights; they need and deserve the same rights granted to any other citizen.
Let us not forget that not terribly long ago, it was illegal for people of different races to marry now we have moved past this (mostly) hopefully we can move past this being a problem as well.
