Marla's Gimme a Minute

I Only Need 60 Seconds!

How About that Gay Marriage

Hi. I’m Marla. Gimme a minute to talk about Gay Marriage. I’ve said in the past that I wasn’t ever going to get political, but I can’t sit back anymore and listen to the BS being spewed by so-called “family values” politicians.

Enough already.

As if Gregory and Rick getting married would really make Brittany think twice?  As if Bonnie and Ellen getting married would keep Arnold’s pants on.  As if the brilliant and beautiful children raised by the constant love and devotion of PJ and Leslie and Crystal and Peg would have had a better life if they’d been raised born into the family of all those Duggars.  As if.  Ok, so maybe it’s not fair to pit my sane, grounded gay friends against the crazy straight celebrities we hear about in the news every day….. how about the fact that straight America is headed to a 50% divorce rate?  It’s true, Kelly and Rosie got divorced, and left all those kids and they’re gay.  But so did Jon and Kate and, not gay.

The fact is, until Gay marriage includes federal and medical benefits and equal protections, we will always be equal but separate.

Don’t you think it’s about time that our homosexual friends get to enjoy the ups and downs and stresses of traditional marriage?

If you’re offended by my opinion, you are certainly entitled to yours, but really As if any other marriage would have any impact on yours.  Don’t you have a hard enough time just minding your own business?

I’m Marla.  Thanks for Listening.  See Ya.

    You did go there! And should be proud! I loved the end — I often wonder myself where and how and WHY these people care so much about other people’s lives?! Well-said.
