It is no one’s business but that of the two people marrying
I am a California minister. I would like to know when the rest of the country is going to wake up and see the LGBT crowd as also being equal humans with us. I have performed many unions which have lasted through a whole lot of stuff. In the time that I have been legally able to marry couples in wedded bliss, I have had the grand opportunity to have joined in Divine Union couples considered “LGBT.” These couples, by and large, are just like all of the straight couples I have married outside of the fact that they are not straight. As a minister, it is my job to marry people, but as a woman of grand Spirit, it is my lot in life to be able to see Love and to show Love to all, namely those who are to be considered as the meek, the lost, and those who are just not the same as everyone else is. I, too, am included in this, because I am not the same as everyone else is.
Yet, that is aside of the assumption of some people that those who are LGBT are not supposed to be happy, are not meant to have the same things in life that we straight folks are, and it is a crying shame that there are still a lot of hateful people who share the air with us who think that it is somehow their right to make married life something that is exclusive to people who are straight.
It is none of anyone’s business what two people in love, regardless of their gender, are doing with their lives. I have said it a whole lot, that whatever it is that gays are doing behind the privacy of their own closed doors has no bearing on what the rest of the world is doing. When was it ours to lay claim to something as special and holy and Divine as Love and being married because you Love someone else? When did we have the right to pull rank on people who a few straights believe to be morally wrong? How is it that Love is ever morally wrong? What anyone refuses to think about is that in all of their judgement, there has been left no room for thinking about how it might feel if the shoe were on the other foot.
No one straight would accept that someone else thinks that they haven’t got the same freedoms and rights as does anyone else, including the right to be with who any one of us cares to be with, even if that other person someone cares to be with is the same gender as we are. It is not ours to say who will love someone else enough to want to spend the rest of our lives with them, and is not ours to place limits onto something as big and as important as having the right to be with the person who you love. It is wrong and it is hurtful and smacks of hatred that was supposed to be gone a long time ago.
Too often, we forget that we need to stop telling good people who are also gay that they are wonderful but that they are not wonderful nor human enough to fall in love, in love enough to want to spend the rest of their days in this lifetime with the one person who they know also feels like they do…and so what if those two people in love are two women or two men?
Love does not see anything other than Love. We do not have the right, Spiritually, to make that limitation a reality for people who just want what we want.
To be Loved.
