it’s time

If there is one thing I’ve learned by working in the wedding industry, and by attending the vast number of weddings that I attend, it’s that there is nothing political about love. And there is nothing political when two people decide that they want to stand in front of their community and declare their love to each other. This video does one of the best jobs of illustrating that fact than anything else I’ve ever seen:

In general, I don’t really think that this blog is a very appropriate place for me to talk about politics. However, I don’t actually think that the legalization of same-sex marriage should be a political issue*, because it’s a human & civil rights issue. Which, I guess is a political issue, if you live in a country whose laws differentiate between and oppress certain groups of citizens.

I have to believe that Americans won’t continue to let the United States be that kind of country for very much longer. It is, indeed, time.

*I also don’t think that it should be a religious issue, (um, and let’s pretend to ignore the complet lack of Church-State separation in American marriage laws for a moment) except that as a practicing Christian, I actually find it impossible to find a valid Christianity-based argument against civil rights, including a valid Christianity-based argument against same-sex marriage. Religious arguments for same-sex marriage, however, are much easier for me to understand.
