It's just shifted to a new battlefield.
These past couple of weeks, I've been absorbed in info about the current Prop 8 Trial.
In case you have no idea what I'm talking about, it's a case attempting to overthrow the ruling making gay marriage illegal in California. There's lots of good info on http://www.time.com/ covering it.
This is an issue that affects not only the GTBL, but all of us. No matter what side you're on, this is absolutely a moment in history that will be remembered. No matter what the outcome of this trial, America will be changed forever. Every minority has had to fight for their civil rights, and at this moment in time, it's the gay community.
As a Christian, I'm extremely passionate about equal rights for all. I try to live by the phrase "love you neighbor as yourself." That goes for every aspect of my life, from how I vote, to how I treat those different from myself. I believe everyone is equal in God's eyes, equally loved, and equally deserving of civil rights as well as respect.
I'll be waiting with bated breath to see how this goes. For those interested, on either side of the issue, you can find full transcripts HERE.
This is a deciding moment for all of us.
What are your thoughts?
Have you been following this trial? How do you think this will change America?
