Al Gore is for Freedom to Marry



I think it’s wrong for the government to discriminate against people because of that person’s sexual orientation.

I think that gay men and women ought to have the same rights as heterosexual men and women, to make contracts, to have hospital visiting rights, to join together in marriage, and I don’t understand why it is considered by some people to be a threat to heterosexual marriage to allow it by gays and lesbians.

Shouldn’t we be promoting that kind of faithfulness and loyalty to one’s partner regardless of sexual orientation? Because if you don’t do that then to that extent you are promoting promiscuity and you are promoting all the problems that can result from promiscuity.

And the loyalty and love that two people feel for one another when they fall in love ought to be celebrated and encouraged, and shouldn’t be prevented by any form of discrimination in the law.
Well, yeah, I'm for marriage for whoever wants it, of course, but I have to point out, President Gore, that marriage hasn't kept my straight ass husband so loyal. Not that I'm bitter or anything - just sayin'

I agree that marriage in the eyes of the government is nothing more than a domestic contract. Let the churches ordain who is to receive their "sacred" approvals; government must remain secular in its business. So not only do I support same-gender unions, I also say we should have multi-party marriage, too. Of course, America is not ready for this radical a message, so let's stand up for same-gender marriage for now.
