Tolerance

I have a two year old.  He is a gashes kid.  No matter how I try and explain that it is not nice to make load toots in public he doesn’t get it.  And so I have those embarrassing moments with my kid.  He now quietly says “excuse me” when a fluff escapes.  I don’t care how cute his excuse me is, it is still embarrassing.  I don’t think it should be socially acceptable to fart wherever you feel so inclined.  But we live in a country where we are expected to be tolerance of everyone’s choices.  Granted at two it could be argued that he doesn’t understand his choice.

Wither homosexuality is caused by nurture or nature or a combo of both is not really part of why we should vote for Prop 8.  What makes someone homosexual is a total different discussion.  But the choice to act out on that drive is just that, a choice.  Unlike my two year old those who are choosing to sleep-with, live-with, marry…people of the same-sex are aware they are making that choice.  Because of our society we are encouraged to embrace homosexual actions with open arms.  But that still doesn’t make it right.

A title is gained from allowing same sex couples to marry.  The consequences to society are much boarded then that.

As a side note, I find it ever so ironic that the war cry for those against prop 8 is love, tolerance and acceptance.  But not all are living what they preach.  There are many incidents of vandalism, theft and even violets against supporting prop 8.  It drives me crazy to see damaged or graffiti signs (regardless of what the issue or side is).  We live in a country where there is freedom of speech.  Let people speak without destroying their statement.
