Let’s Talk About HUMAN Rights

image1 (1)This post is inspired by the recent state laws, both passed and proposed, across the nation that are allowing businesses to discriminate against people. Now, I don’t know about all of you, but I’m pretty sure passing laws to discriminate against certain people is a concept that belongs in the 1950s. Unfortunately, laws that make discrimination in the United States a reality are passed even in the advanced year of 2015. I’m talking about Chicanos, Whites, Blacks, Asians, Gay, Straight, Democrat, Republican, Independents- it doesn’t matter! We are all HUMAN and AMERICAN (and globally speaking, we are all HUMAN and Citizens of the same world). There’s one race that every living person on this planet belongs to, and that’s the human race. As I’m sure you’ve heard or read, a lawyer from Long Beach has proposed the Sodomite Suppression Act to be placed on the 2016 ballot. (By the way, the only people we should really be suppressing these days are terrorists and people who come up with things like the “Sodomite Suppression Act.”) Basically this law would make”[touching] another person of the same gender for purposes of sexual gratification” punishable by “bullets to the head or by any other convenient method.” The proposed law would also ban gays from serving in public office. I honestly believe this proposed law will not complete the next steps toward the ballot. If I am wrong and somehow this disgusting piece of garbage makes its way onto the ballot in 2016, there is no way it will pass and become a law. We need to stop allowing people to be so anti-gay. To be anti-gay is to be anti-human, and (not to get too political, but…) it’s pretty much the opposite of being “pro-life.” If the Sodomite Suppression Act does go to the ballot, I hope that collectively, Californians can choose a path to the future. A future in which we can all bond with the human connection. People are people and that’s all there is to it. I’d like to end with a fitting biblical quote: “Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32).

  1. Crazy, huh? My husband and I never could understand what someone’s else’s marriage had to do with ours. Our gay uncles in Hawaii got married recently. We are so happy. One (our blood relative) is getting up in years and we are thrilled that the man who loves him and knows him and has been with him for 40 years can legally take care of him now, make decisions, sign paperwork, etc…
