My parents taught me that being a person need to have a our own principals, to be our self and be respectful to others.
Right now, I am doing it. I have my own principals when it comes to animal rights and human rights. And most of you will have your own rights to disagree and close my blog after you see the title above. OR, maybe you are curious and continue to read. I suggest that you choose from your heart.
I respect and appreciate differences. My mother also told me that differences are meant to be understood. So, I discover the world where people has to be themselves and to make differences for their lives to affect others. I am proud to say that I respect queer people and thrilled that they have the right to get married, in the US, 50 states has been legalized gay marriage by The Supreme Court.
Let's just say that the world is about finding your way towards equality. Yes. You had to remember when Martin Luther King freed African-American from slavery. You had to remember when woman of our own (Kartini) wrote many letters to encourage every woman to be strong and have the rights like men does. Hello? So, when you try to kind of quoting from books, I mean like Holy Books and it's already written clearly that to be a queer is a sin, well it's true. It is, might be a sin, because its not natural, because woman and men are supposed to be together, and not otherwise. Lots of pros and cons over this and its not going to be over soon, just like when we discuss about religion.
Holy Books are a complete guidance to survive and live as a person. I am no expert in religion stuff, and no, don't underestimate me. But I do know what is fair and what is not. The Books is to be interpret. Just like when we are learning to understand a case, we have to analyze and not just put an answer based from one same simple case. Okay. Bear with me. So, in my personal opinion, we have to understand the meaning, the context of people, culture, language and TIME. So that we can be more educated to relate this kind of thing with equality of love.
I am not going to discuss any further about the between the Books and its contents about this matter, but what I want to write is....love is pure and all people deserve to be themselves and get married. Whatever you guys may think this issue, let's just rejoice the fact that people are equal, God loves their creation because God has made them. God made us. And we should be thankful for God and God's creation.
Remember, what is pure is always natural :) Just like water.. (ngomong apa gue.)
Washington (CNN) The times, they are a changing, suddenly at whiplash speed.
After a momentous week, same-sex couples can now marry in all 50 states, the Confederate flag's historic hold on the political institutions of the Deep South is fraying by the hour and Obamacare, after defying another attempt to dismantle it, is now reaffirmed as the law of the land.
And as a capstone to these seismic events, the first black president of the United States spent Friday afternoon singing "Amazing Grace" on live television in front of an African American congregation.
Political and social conventions on civil rights and race relations that for decades have seemed immovable are being swept away in a cascade of grass-roots change. Politicians have been left struggling to keep up.
"Progress on this journey often comes in small increments," President Barack Obama said Friday, arguing that the task of each generation is to honor the Constitution's guarantee of equal rights as the times change.
"(It's) sometimes two steps forward, one step back, compelled by the persistent effort of dedicated citizens," he said, describing the process of transformational political change around which he has built his political career.
"And then sometimes there are days like this, when that slow, steady effort is rewarded with justice that arrives like a thunderbolt," Obama said, moments after the Supreme Court delivered its historic decision legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide.
