Who defined marriage anyway as between man and woman only? so many combinations are possible..man and man..woman and woman..man and tranvestite..woman and transvestite..tranvestite and tranvestite..Is it the Church or the State? What gives them the right to do so?? Should'nt the personal lives of people be private and sacrosant?? Who has the right to interfere in wht you do in your prvate bedroom??
I believe there is an inherent need for people to be that is to stand out from the crowd , have their voices heard and more important to be treated as equal. Unfortunately , people are not always treated as equal due to their ethnicity , religion , economic stature in society and life style choices which brings about unrest and thusly creates change . Change is good for those who are open to it but for those who are used to the old way well it will only create more problems.
S/n : I have no problem with gays / transgender as long as they don't infringe upon my right to live and believe as I see fit.
