ARE YOU TIRED OF THE "GOVERNMENT'', "THE CHURCH" THEIR VERSIONS OF DIFFERENT "BIBLES'" AND OR "STATE' TELLING YOU WHO YOU CAN & CAN NOT MARRY ESPECIALLY AS A PERSON OF LEGAL AGE?
I KNOW I AM.
AS TIME HAS PASSED WE AS CHILDEREN HAVE READ IN HISTORY TO THE PRESENT TIME THAT MARRIAGE THROUGH OUT TIME HAS EVOLVED FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.
FROM:
HOW THERE HAS BEEN ARRANGED MARRIAGES, SOME SURVIVING & SOME NOT.
SOME AS YOUNG AS 13... PROMISED TO ONE AT THE AGE OF 3... TRADING YOUR CHILD FOR A COW.., WHAT SENSE DOES THAT MAKE?
HAVING CHILDREN OUT OF WED-LOCK YOU WERE CONSIDERED “LESS THEN” A WOMAN. IN SOME EYES A "WHORE'' & AND YET ONES LOVE & COMMITMENT CHALLENGED EVEN IF BOTH PARTIES STAYED TOGETHER, MAKING THEM ''LESS THEN" WITH LITTLE SIDE WHISPERS. TODAY IT’S VERY “NORMAL” & “COMMON”.
FROM INTER RACIAL DATING IN THE PAST. BEING 'BLACK' WAS A ''SIN". AND YET THER LOVE WAS MADE "LESS THEN" WHY? ALL BECAUSE OF ONES COLOR.
AND YET TODAY INTER RACIAL DATING IS “COMMON’’. WHATS NEXT INTER RACIAL MARRIAGE??
FROM CHRISTIAN BELIEFS TO MORMONS, FROM SACRAMENT TO CONTRACT. AND YET IT ALL GIVE "HISTORY', BUT NO ANALYSIS, NO OPINION, NO GUIDENCE.
TO UNDERSTANDING YOU CAN NOT ''FORCE ONE IN A DIRECTION" & EXPECT EVERYONE TO BE HAPPY SIMPLY BECAUSE ONE MAY NOT WANT TO BE THERE. WE LEARNED THROUGH TIME & TIME AGAIN THAT GIVING THE RIGHT TO THE "INDIVIDUAL'' ALLOWING THEM TO MAKE THERE OWN BED AND LAY IN IT. IT’S MORE BENIFITIAL IN RESPECTING ONE ANOTHER AS ADULTS TO MAKE THERE OWN CHOICES IN LIFE.
FROM YOUNG ADULTS BEING TOLD WHAT IS RIGHT & WHAT IS WRONG WHO THEY SHOULD & SHOULDN’T DATE, ADULTS LEAVING LONG TERM MARRIAGES SIMPLY BECAUSE NO LONGER HAPPY IN THERE SITUATION FINDING HAPPINESS ELESWHERE BEING CALLED A “HOMEWREAKER”.
FROM “COMMON LAW’, CIVIL UNIONS, PARTNERSHIPS TO MARRIAGE.
IS IT SAFE TO SAY, ALL OF THESE MEAN THE SAME THING BUT TO EACH INDIVIDUAL HAS DIFFERENT MEANING/ DEFINITION.ALTHOUGH DEFINED DIFFERENTLY “MARRIAGE IS MARRIAGE” A COMMITMENT BETWEEN TWO ‘’ CONCENTING ADULTS". TWO PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SIMPLY TO BE A UNION SEEN AS “ONE” AND SAY ''I DO" TO "GOD, BUDDAH...ECT", TELLING THE STATE, THE COUNTRY YOU LIVE IN AND SUPPORT... "YOU WILL LOVE HONOR AND CHERISH THIS PERSON...(NOT THIS GENDER)".
SCIENCE HAS PROVEN WE DON’T FULLY UNDERSTAND HOMOSEXUALITY. WE CAN ONLY SUPPOSE & ASSUME HOW & WHY IT COMES ABOUT IF ITS NATURE VS NURTURE OR BOTH OR NONE. SO HOW CAN IT BE DEEMED AS UNCOMMON WHEN HISTORY SHOWS SEXUALITY HAS BEEN OPEN FOR AGES. JUST LOOK AT ANY CULTURE. THERE HAS BEEN SOME VERSION OF SAME SEX ACTIVITIES AND IT NEVER WAS A PROBLEM TILL SOCIETY FELT IT WAS WRONG
TO THEN BEING LOOKED LIKE A CIRCUS ACT IN THE PEOPLE WHOM DEEM IT WRONG. SPREADING ‘HATE’ SIMPLY BECAUSE ONE IS DIFFERENT.
YET WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT. FROM HAIR, EYES TO SHAPES & SIZES TO PREFERANCE OF CLOTHING & SLLYE TO DIFFERENT MORAL & VIEWS TO DIFFERENT RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. THE UNITED STATES HAS LOST ITS WAY. WE AS THE PEOPLE HAVE LOST THE VALUE OF QUALITY IN LIFE... SIMPLY LIVING IS NO LONGER AN OPITION YOU MUST APPSEASE SOCIETY AND ITS SOCIAL NORMS... OTHERWISE MIGHT AS WELL CALL YOUR SELF AN OUTCAST… SIMPLY BECAUSE IN THIS COUNTRY THE LGBTQ DOESN’T QULIFY UNDER “HUMAN RIGHT”
THEN EXPECT OTHERS TO BE PERFECTLY OKAY WITH THE STANDERS FROM STATE TO STATE. HOW LEGAL MARRIAGE IS AND CAN BE OBTAINED ONCE OF LEGAL AGE & YET IN SOME STATES YOU CAN BE MARRIED AT 16. UNFORTUNATELY THAT DOESN’T APPLY TO THE LGBTQ. WHY? WHAT MAKES US LESS THEN THE AVARAGE 16 YR OLD??
IF ONE THAT YOUNG CAN DETERMIN "LOVE" & COMMITMENT AS A HETEROSEXUAL... WHY QUESTION HOMOSEXUALITY?? CHALLENGE THE MARRIAGE... SIMPLY BECAUSE OF SOCIETIES/ ONES PERSONAL OPINION OF ONE BEING TOO YOUNG.
THEN TO LOOK AT STATE TO STATE ACKNOLOGDING ONES VOWS AS EQUAL TO THE NEXT VARIES SIMPLY BECAUSE OF INDIFFERNCE IN OPINION AND YET TURNING BACK TIME INTO HISTORY.. WE HAVE SEEN MANY STRUGGLES OF 'BEING VEIWED LESS THEN" SIMPLY BECAUSE OF ‘PERSONAL VIEWS’

WHY ARE WE DEEMED AS THESE MISFITS AND OUR OATH, OUR VOW TO OUR MATES ‘‘CONSIDERED LESS THEN... DEEMED AS "EROSION"
Erosion noun
Definition of EROSION
A gradual weakening, loss, or destruction
Synonyms attrition, erosion, undermining, waste
Related Words breakdown, decay, decomposition, disintegration, dissolution
Near Antonyms gain, increase
REALLY????

LET’S LOOK AT ROMNEYS UNDERSTANDING. HIS BELIEFS ARE BASED ON "RELIGION"...HIS BELIEF IS BASED ON "OPINION"... HIS BELIEFS ARE ROOTED SIMPLY BECAUSE OF WHAT HE WAS TAUGHT.
BEING TAUGHT... WHOS TO SAY WHAT HE HAS BEEN TAUGHT...IS RIGHT. WITH OUT AN OPEN MIND YOU LEFT BRAIN WASHED STUCK IN A TIME THAT HAS BOUNDERIES FOR A ‘SPECIFIC’ CLASSOR ‘RACE’ TO FEEDING SOCIETY MORE CHAOS BEING A BULLY TO A COMMUNITY YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. IT’S OKAY TO CALL NAMES MAKE ACCUSATION MAKE A MOCKERY OF US (LGBTQ) MR. ROMNEY OF WHAT MARRIAGE IS.

SINCE WHEN DID "HOMOSEXUALITY" REALLY BECOME AN ISSUE?

The homosexual community has raised the argument that the word homosexual never occurred in the Bible until 1946, thereby trying to demonstrate that homosexuality is not wrong; that instead, Christians have translated the Bible to make it suit their needs...
NO DIFFERENT THEN WHAT WE THE LGBTQ DO.. TO FEEL SOME CONNECTION TO THE "SPIRITUAL/ RELIGIOUS ASPECT''.
THERE HASNT BEEN ANY SOLID EVIDENCE PROVING WHAT HAS BEEN WRITTEN IN THE "BIBLE'... TO BE A MESSAGE FROM ''GOD''.OTHER THEN MEER OPINIONS.
THERE SHOULDNT BE NO SAY ON WHO SHOULD OR SHOULDNT BE MARRIED SIMPLY BECAUSE OF NO AGREEANCE IN A PERSON VIEWS.
The word "homosexual" did not appear in any translation of the Christian Bible until 1946. We have to acknowledge don't translate a word from Hebrew and Greek into the English if there is no English equivalent. So, using IT IN THE Bible could not have occurred until after the word had entered the English vocabulary.
SO IF IT NEVER EXISTED PRIOR TO THIS... when did the term "homosexual" enter the English vocabulary?
"In English the word homosexual was first used in 1892 in the English translation of Krafft-Ebing's "Psychopathia sexualis" which was a reference work, in German, on sexual perversions (AN OPINION). It first appeared in 1886. SO BY ONE MAN UTILIZING THE WORD PERVERSION.IS WHAT MAKED IT A "BAD" THING.
Perversion noun
Definition of PERVERSION a sinking to a state of low moral standards and behavior
Synonyms: abjection, corruptness, debasement, debauchery, decadence, decadency, degeneracy ECT.
Related Words evil, immorality, sinfulness, villainy, wickedness; filth.
Near Antonyms goodness, morality, righteousness, virtue
Related Words mishandling, mismanagement, mismanaging; ill-treatment, ill-usage, maltreatment, mistreatment; damage, destruction, ruin, spoiling, wrecking; corruption, debasement, desecration, profanation, prostitution.
WOW.
ACCORDING TO MORMON BELIEFS
Polygamy (called plural marriage by Mormons in the 19th century or the Principle by modern fundamentalist practitioners of polygamy) was taught by leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) for more than half of the 19th century, [1] and practiced publicly from 1852 to 1890. [2]...AS IF THAT ISNT PERVERSION and or IMORAL ACCORDING TO OTHERS BELIEFS.

MIND YOU MITT ROMNEY WAS ALSO TAUGHT POLYGAMY IS OKAY GROWING UP ...AND YET HE HAS EVOLVED INTO A "SUPPOSED FAITHFUL MAN TO HIS WIFE"...AND YET IF YOU GO INTO HIS HISTORY.I'M PRETTY SURE HIS GREAT GREAT GREAT WAS PERFECTLY FINE.HAVING MORE THEN ONE WOMAN IN THE BED...
WHY IS THAT OKAY...? AND NOT FOR A WOMAN TO DO THE SAME??
LET ME GUESS... A MAN LIES WITH A WOMAN TO PROCREATE... AND WOMAN DONT WANT THE SAME?? YET MITT ROMNEY MAKES IT SEEM...”THIS IS A MANS WORLD"...A WOMAN CAN NOT DO WITHOUT A MAN IN TODAYS TECNOLOGY.

MITT ROMNEY BELIEVES A CHILD AND A HOME HAS A MOTHER & FATHER... A MAN & A WOMAN.
AND YET HOW MANY SINGLE HETERO MOTHER & FATHERS ARE OUT THERE... FROM DIVORCE TO SIMPLY HAVING A ONE NIGHTSTAND...
YET WE THE LGBTQ ARE THE PERVERSION....’’EROSION"? ...NOT LOOKING AT THE FACT THAT WE ALL HAVE OUR OPINIONS ON WHAT A HOME IS... AND WHAT A FAMILY IS.

"A RECORD OF PROTECTING TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE" ROMNEYS DOING.

Governor Romney Staunchly Defended Traditional Marriage
In January 2007, The Massachusetts Legislature Approved The Measure Advancing It To The Next Session. "Massachusetts legislators approved a measure yesterday that next year could allow voters to overturn a historic same-sex marriage law in the only state in the nation where such unions are legal. A bitterly divided state legislature voted to advance a proposed amendment to the state constitution that defines marriage exclusively as a union between a man and a woman. … 'This is a huge victory for the people of Massachusetts,' Romney said in a statement. 'In a democracy, the voice of the people is sovereign.'' (FREE) SO LET ALL OUR VOICES BE HEARD.
In June 2004, Governor Romney Testified In Support Of The Federal Marriage Amendment.
"Society can ill afford erosion of charitable institutions. For these reasons, I join with those who support a federal constitutional amendment. Some may retreat from the concept of amendment. While they say they agree with the traditional definition of marriage, they hesitate to amend. But amendment is a vital and necessary aspect of our constitutional democracy, not an aberration."
ABERRATION noun a serious mental disorder that prevents one from living a safe and normal life.
Synonyms dementia, derangement, lunacy, madness, mania, rage [archaic]
Related Words neurosis, psychosis; instability, irrationality, unreasonableness; delirium, frenzy, hysteria; hypomania, paranoia, schizophrenia; senile dementia; delusion, hallucination; monomania, obsession, phobia; abnormality, dementedness, unsoundness

Related Words accident, bizarre, distortion, kink, mutation, variation; difference, disparity, inconsistence, inconsistency; error, mistake; contradiction, paradox-Near Antonyms norm, ordinary, usual
Basically saying we are crazy, unstable, beings not worthy of being married or having the same right in the eyes of “whomever”... whatever”. Yet doesn’t see the madness in the hetero world.
If you ask me…if marriage isn’t for the LGBTQ… then it isn’t for you MR. ROMNEY. IF YOU RESTRICT US THE LGBTQ OF MARRIAGE… WE SHOULD BE ABLE AS A COUNTRY TO RISTRICT IT FOR ALL. WE ARE ALL HUMAN. OF LEGAL AGE. AND THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS.
RELIGIONIOUS BELIEFS IS BASED ON OWN INTURPITIATION.

NOW TO THE PRESENT DAY
ACCORDING TO MITT ROMNEY IS TRYING TO PUSH ONCE PRESIDENT OF OUR CONTRY FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT (THE MUSGRAVE AMENDMENT)
THIS IS WHAT IT STATES.

" Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution or the constitution of any State, nor state or federal law, shall be construed to require that marital status or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon unmarried couples or groups''

…If equal protection of the laws has any meaning, it must be that
all people, all families must be treated fairly and equally. THAT MEANS THE TERM MARRIAGE IS FOR ALL AS LONG AS CONSENTING ADULTS. That should include lesbian and gay families, whether or not anyone approves of them.
THE LAND WE LOVE... FOR THE COMMON INDIVIDUAL. FOR THE ONE WHO DOESN’T FIT HIS STANDERS…. OF LOVE… COMMITMENT... FAMILY…AND IS MORE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT WE “CAUSE’’ THIS CONTRY VS LOOKING AT THE WHOLE PICTURE AS ONE.
IT SEEMS WE THE LGBTQ ARENT WORTHY OF THE SAME HUMAN RIGHTS that Mr. Romney has… SIMPLY BECAUSE TO ROMNEY... WE ARE LESS THEN HUMAN...HE MAY NOT SAY IT... BUT THAT’S MY INTERUPTATION OF WHAT ROMNEY MEANS...
