Marriage Equality: It's Time USA

      Urbana, IL

I see the petitions for individual states to change their marriage laws and lift bans on gay marriage, but I haven't yet found a petition designed to demonstrate the growing sympathy of our nation towards the LGBT community's on-going struggle with discrimination against gay marriage. If we profess to believe in equality there is no room to pick and choose to whom we disperse certain rights too. The "inalienable" right of marriage is currently "alienated" from a portion of our population. We, as a people, need to defend that right--for everyone. One day we will look back and be dismayed at how long it took us to grant our American brothers and sisters ALL of their rights, but that day won't come till we speak up and enact change. Help speed that day along by signing this--or any other marriage equality--petition.

      Why is this important to me? Because I love someone so, so much. Just because he's a man shouldn't make any difference to anyone else but me. I love; I LOVE. If there was only more love in the world today...

      Tru love is hard enough to find. I don't care what gender the couple may be comprised of, and Congress you do NOT have the right to tell me who I may marry and who I don't. That is the most personal OF personal decisions, and the government should keep OUT of it.

      Everyone should be allowed the right to choose and the right to marry! Our belief system is both unstructured and backwards. Personally, if people actually believed the myth that marriage is so sanctified that it cannot risk the "degradation" of allowing same sex marriages, then our divorce rate would not be higher than our marriage rate. Oh, it's okay for a straight person to have six marriages, but heaven forbid a same sex couple even wish for such?

      All our children deserve the same rights we heterosexual parents and families have.

      All our children deserve the same rights as we heterosexuals have and take for granted.
