I would like to start off by saying that any homosexual, especially young men and women that are just coming to accept their identity within themselves, would tell you that their sexuality was under no circumstances a choice. Just like African Americans, homosexuals are born with a particular quality that makes them different from the rest of society and just like we have come to realize that African Americans are just as deserving of the liberty and equality that our nation was built upon, it is only a matter of time before this justice is brought to homosexuals as well. The fight for marriage equality is nothing short of a Civil Rights movement and the fact that whether or not two people that love each other have the right to get married is even up for debate is one of the more disturbing aspects of our culture. Expressing who you are, loving the person your with, fostering self-development, and pursuing happiness are the greatest gifts God has bestowed upon us and gender should not be looked at something that confines what this entails.
