that blogging about politics
A sure way to alienate readers.
I've been pretty good,
at staying neutral in my prose.
There is one issue,
upon which I'm not afraid to draw a line in the blog sand
and choose a side.
I am advocate for equal rights.
I don't like hate.
Especially when it's based on fear.
I came across this website
a couple weeks ago.
I bought a t-shirt.
Partially because it is a little
to wear a t-shirt that says, "FCKH8."
I certainly can't put it on my license plates.
But also, because I think it's a good cause.
The support of gay marriage.
I think it's okay to be afraid of things you may not understand,
or things that you may not morally approve of
because of personal or religious reasons.
I think it is also okay to disapprove of those things.
I do not, however, think that it's okay
to deny rights to only select people
because of that fear.
denying gays and lesbians the right to marry,
is a heinous form of
"the upholding of moral and ethical conservative values."
Citizens of the United States.
Having equal access to all rights.
I thought that was a Conservative Value....
I'm standing up to FckH8.
I hope you will, too.
