Hey American gays,
You realize this means you may all be able to get married anywhere in the country sometimes in the next four years, right? YESSSSSSSSS.
Because the election is tomorrow I’ve obviously seen a shit ton of Mitt Romney stuff and it’s been annoying the fuck out of me. I wrote this because I just wanted to say this before the election. Sorry that the grammar and stuff is really terrible but oh well, deal with it.
With the election being tomorrow and all, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking in regards to the horrific event of you actually winning.
In the First Amendment it states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” If you become the President of the United States shouldn’t you be required to uphold one of the basic principles of your country? Why do you get to impose your personal, religious beliefs about abortion and gay marriage on an entire country? Isn’t that exactly what the First Amendment is saying you are NOT allowed to do? If you don’t like gay marriage, whatever your reasons may be, that’s your prerogative, but you have no right imposing your views on an entire country. Also, “prohibiting the free exercise thereof”, does not mean you get to impose your religious beliefs on an entire country. It means you are entitled to your own beliefs and that’s it. It doesn’t mean you can make laws in respect to your religion and justify it because people are not allowed to prohibit your freedom of religion.
The separation of Church and State is pretty self explanatory, wouldn’t you say? All it means is that the Church (meaning any religious influence) shall not play a part in law making. That means, if you become President, you have absolutely no right to impose your beliefs on gay marriage and abortion on the entire country. Here’s an idea: If you don’t want a gay marriage, don’t get one.
Now, I’m Canadian so any of these laws wouldn’t really have any effect on me. I’m writing this because this is what I believe in. I believe that you shouldn’t be allowed to take away someone’s basic human right to marry the person they love, and you should not be allowed to take away a woman’s right to her own body. The fact that you would even consider that, especially on the basis of religion, in which you are supposed to be loving and kind to everyone, makes me sick.
I am Jewish, gay, and Canadian. I was raised with Judeo-Christian values and morals. One thing I learned is that you treat everyone equally. You don’t tell someone they are lesser than because and don’t give them equal rights because they are attracted to people of the same gender; have a different colour skin; practice a different religion; or anything else.
In conclusion, you’re an asshole and should not be President.
