And Then Gay Marriage was Legal

A sobering thought: Back in the day, just a few short years ago, almost everyone opposed gay marriage. Every state the issue was put to a vote, it was turned down, The polls all were against supporting gay marriage, suddenly, one judge, struck down millions of voters and said it was unconstitutional to not allow gays to marry, suddenly the polls reversed and it seemed everyone suddenly favored gay marriage, all in about two weeks.

I don’t think so.

Now if you oppose gay marriage you are deemed racist, a bigot, and many other unflattering terms. All for believing what millions of people believed just a few short years ago.

Regardless if you are for or against this issue,  this shows what one unelected official can do to sway the opinions of a nation, not good.

The truth of the matter is: It is not any of  the government’s business who or if you marry. It is a decision you should make on your own personal interests and beliefs.

It’s none of our business or concern who any one marries, that is for them to decide.

Marriage is a biblical term and custom, all cultures have had some form of marriage, the custom goes back to the beginning of time.

Since it is a biblical term and custom, It is for the individual and church to decide.

Since it is a religious or spiritual practice, the government has no business sticking it’s nose into your or my beliefs. 

It is my understanding the government had no interest in marriage until the income tax law was passed, then it became another way for us to be taxed, their interest has nothing to do with God or morals, it’s all about the money and their ability to have power over us.  (Another good reason to implement the Fair Tax. )

It is of no concern to government how we run our lives, or how we live, as long as we don’t harm someone else in the process, our morals are between us and our God. 

The government can’t and shouldn’t legislate morality. Gay marriage like many other issues are just used a political fodder to garner votes, most politicians could care less about the issues, our beliefs or morality, their only concern is to get reelected to their political offices to insure their high paying, high profile ego pleasing positions.

Once we learn that simple fact and realize that by legislating issues such as this, we enable one person to determine the whole course of our lives. Do we really want that?

Wisdom lost through the ages, common sense is no longer common.

Gary has been a writer/photographer for over thirty years. Specializing in nature and landscape photography, while studying native cultures.

His travels have taken him to most of the United States, as well as Australia, Belize, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

He has studied the Mayan culture of Central America and the aborigines of

Australia. Photography has given him the opportunity to observe life in various parts of the world.

He has observed that many of the forgotten cultures had spiritual beliefs that were stronger than ours in modern times.

While we have advanced technically far superior to those that came before us, we have lagged behind in spiritual knowledge.

For us to advance as the human race, we need to combine the spiritual knowledge of those that came before us, not only that of the ancients but the knowledge of our direct ancestors as well, with the technical knowledge we have today for us to propel into the twenty-first century and beyond.

He has published several books about his adventures.
