All Marriage Should Be Gay
One of my favorite TV shows is "Wheel of Fortune," I guess every person over 55 including myself loves 'Wheel of Fortune!?'
After the first round puzzle Pat Sajak introduces the players and they all say something about themselves. Usually something like I've been married for 10 years to my beautiful and awesome wife, who is also my best friend. They always say positive things. They say gay (happy) stuff about spouses. They never say realities like," I've been married to my husband for 10 years and he cheats on me constantly and is abusing alcohol."
Why are the gays so excited with the passage of the recent same sex marriage bill? With marriage comes divorce more than 50 percent of the time. There are nasty custody battles when keiki and pets are involved. Are they ready to be taken to the cleaners for infidelities, and are they ready for the heartbreak of a former spouse re-marrying another partner?
The traditional definition of "gay" according to my oxford, dictionary thesaurus is light hearted, brightly coloured and extremely happy. Therefore gay marriage is really just marriage.
The dilemma with 'gay' marriage is many take it wrong, since all marriages should be gay,(happy) just as all divorces are either nasty, depressing , costly, or all of the above. Do you think when a homosexual couple gets divorced they will seek a gay divorce? Probably not, since divorce is not a happy (gay) thing
Everything seems centered around the gays. It has become highly accepted and seems the new cool is to be gay.
Every evening newscast usually has something about gay marriage, civil unions or a new professional sports figure coming out of the closet. A recent headline concerning the winter Olympics read,"
Winter Olympics off to colourful start as countries show they're not Putin up with anti-gay laws."
The recent February 17th edition of Sports Illustrated featured on the cover Missouri state defensive lineman Michael Sam. Sam was named a first-team All-American of the 2013 season and has publicly come out as gay. The college football star is eligible for the 2014 NFL Draft and is said to become the first active openly gay player in NFL history. Players are being interviewed about it and the general consensus seems to bare that nobody really seems to care about his personal life. They are however concerned if he can play football, and from all indications he can.
...And last year Sports Illustrated magazine featured Jason Collins, a gay NBA basketball player. The story had nothing to do with any sports achievement but just the fact he was a gay and came out of the closet.
It has become politically correct to accept gay anything and everything. Nowadays It seems every sit-com, reality show feature movie and even the Olympics take into account the gay lifestyle.
I am opposed to same sex marriage, not for the same reasons as religious fundamentalists, but because I am against marriage in general. The hippie movement of the 1960's had it right with living together. If you really love someone you don't need a license warranted by some politician,lawyer or religious leader,for obvious reasons.
It's gotten to be that one feels left out if your not a homosexual or lesbian, or should I say gay? Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Epilogue; (added for blog,not in newspaper column)
The only problem I foresee is showering after practice and games. It would be like a straight guy getting to shower with 52 naked woman...
P.S. A beautiful YouTube video, "Cows jump for joy!" Its worth the watch!
