Love Is All There Is
Last summer marked the point at which I had lived in Nevada for as long as I had previously lived in California. I realized then that it will never matter how long I live in Nevada, I will always think of myself as a Californian. And today I am profoundly ashamed of my home state. I will never understand why some people are so bent on denying civil rights to gays and lesbians. I don't understand why anyone cares who marries whom. Nothing about gay unions harms anyone. The sad thing to me is that so many of those anti same sex marriage people claim to be Christians and want to use the Bible to justify their position. The same Bible that exhorts them to beware of casting the first stone, to love their neighbors, to judge not and to turn the other check. As as practicing agnostic, I sincerely hope there is a God and a heaven where these same people will finally learn that it is not important who you love but only that you love.
