With all the news about the Indianapolis state government passing a law that is “not about discrimination,” it sure sounds like it enables business owners to discriminate against the LGBT community.
It’s been said that Indiana’s not the only state, that there are several others have similar laws. That is true. But Indiana’s case is happening right now, and it’s important to talk about this. The other states will be looked at as a result of this discussion.
But you may ask me why I care. I’m Canadian, I don’t live in the US. Well, I have friends in the US, including some in Indiana and other states that have these laws. They have friends who could be affected. And these days, it’s become internationally known that the US is a hotbed for bigotry, especially with the way the Republican party (particularly the old tea party group) has been going out of their way to discriminate against gay people (not to mention pretend that climate change isn’t happening, but that’s another story). The US has been having race problems a lot, too.
I’m not an overly emotional person, but I have this to say: Grow up, you morons! Why can’t you just learn to get along and let others live how they like? Why do you have to push your religious and political agendas down everyone’s throats, as if gay marriage is a threat to your own way of life. It is not a threat! Only bigots think this way. I mean it. If you think that gay marriage threatens your own personal way of life, you have no intelligence whatsoever. I dare you to try to give a rational explanation that justifies discriminating against people different than you. Go ahead, do it. I bet you can’t. If you want to try, the comments below await you.
For everyone else who is levelheaded, has compassion, and accepts people for how they are, I’d also like your input.
