I thought that we were an intelligent state for the most part, with its interests based solely in reality, but when I hear that the defense of a discriminatory ban is on the grounds of preserving the “status quo” I can believe no longer that this state has truth, justice, and dignity in mind when it considers its actions.
"Heyse told Friedman that should he rule in the plaintiffs’ favor, the state would seek in injunction, because a “stay is imperative to preserve the status quo." *
This state says that we should never undo a voters decision, but what then of every voters choice that thought women should not vote? And what of every time a vote said African Americans were lesser than human? Should we just do what ever the people want and assume that the people will always be morally just and the people will always protect the civil and human rights of people that differ from their “status quo”? Because in my experience and in the experience of reality these people have shown time and time again that they sometimes need to be set right to ensure that they see their actions for what they are, morally and ethically unjust. Have we fallen so far as to forget that we are a state in a union that ensures that every citizen will be treated equally under the law? Can you honestly tell me that creating laws that treat my partner and I’s love as a lesser and sinful love that deserves no rights is equal and fair under the law? I don’t give a damn what your god says. He can say it to you till your blue in the face but if that is your justification for denying me the right to love the man I love and be protected legally the same way that your marriage is, then you need to either find a new god or stop shoving it down my legal throat.
I AM HUMAN. I LOVE. I FEEL. I HURT. I CRY. I LAUGH. I YELL. I KISS. I LIVE.
I live in this world just as you do and all I want in this life is to be with the person I love and have it not be treated as a second class act so let me live, and let me love.
