Gay marriage has been put into the spot light now and many people are taking stands. This issue is being mentioned in the news, and social websites such as facebook and instagram. I do not really have an opinion when it comes to gay marriage, but what I have been seeing and hearing is really opening my eyes. It seems that everyone cares about this issue now even though they did not before, just because it is what everyone is “talking about.” Many people are saying things and supporting equality when they have little knowledge of the matter. The people who are activists and truely passionate about their beliefs, are getting backlashes from others who read their posts. I believe that there are always two sides to each argument and for this issue one of them is the religious point of view. Religion has been the key weapon in some people’s criticisms. An interesting argument (by an anonymous person) that I saw a picture of is: “Its interesting how people selectively choose which aspects of religion to follow and believe certain aspects are more important than others. So when the government considers legalizing gay marriage you don’t support it because of God’s word, but when the government is contemplating…I don’t know….let’s say war…what about “thou shall not kill”? 120,000 dead Iraqi civilians…” I think that it is a very good point that this person made and I couldn’t have said it better myself. The point is that everyone should respect opinions and beliefs even when we do not agree. Just because we see things a certain way, does not mean that everyone else sees it the same way. I am indifferent when it comes to this issue, but I do have beliefs about other things that I wouldn’t want people to criticize me negatively about in the way that I see criticism concerning this issue.
