Another thing they did this week in Denver is kill the gay marriage amendment.
Now, I know this is a hot topic of debate but what cannot be debated is the God-given right to be happy. Hell, even our forefathers knew this was not debatable. Hence the reason for this :
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Do those words ring familiar to you? They should, as they are part of one of the most important documents in American history. They come from the United States Declaration of Independence.
The only reason for disallowing gays to marry is religious. Laws written and imposed by the government should NOT take into account ANYTHING pertaining to religious beliefs. This is EXACTLY why our forefathers put these words into our amendments:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
So why do we have our governors, senators, congressmen and women shoving their RELIGIOUS views down our throats?
Take religion out of politics!!!
