Wise Children

A friend shared this with me, and I felt the urge to share it with all of you. I feel very strongly about gay marriage, and to me, it's so simple: If two consenting adults want to get married, why should it matter what gender they are? Don't get me started on the "But the Bible says being gay is bad" thing - the Bible says a lot of things that are not applicable to today's society. As always, it is the children who see things in their simplest, most obvious lights. This video has the right idea. I can't say it in the right just check it out.

"When you mention the possibility of teaching — in schools! — young kids about what The Gay is all about,some people freak out and, like a mother throwing her arm around her child sitting shotgun in the car, get all protective. They think even a conversation about homosexuality means seven-year-olds will be learning about anal sex. And yet somehow, when a teacher posits a "boyfriend and girlfriend split the dinner check" to explain an arithmetic problem, or tackles the whole "how babies are made" question, the possibility of telling kids about penis-in-vagina sex isn't such a big concern. But it turns out, there is a way to talk to young people, even grade school kids, about gays. And not only is it possible, it's crucial."

  1. I try to stay away from politics but I was really appalled when some of my very good friends kept their kids out of school so that they wouldn't hear our president telling them the importance of staying IN school. I try to keep an open mind most of the time but I didn't get that one at all.
