Let Love Rule

I don't know what really to say, except that sometimes I feel let down by our society. Debating on whether it's wrong to let same sex couples marry and have the same rights as everyone else, seems to spark angry fervor among the "normal" citizens of this "country". The compassion seems to have fled our midst. We are no longer able to express that the unfair treatment of a particular set of persons is cause for use to be lumped into a political category. Right wing. Left wing. Dead wing. It does not matter to me. We, as humans, were not set here on this planet, to judge and condemn anyone. We were put here to love and uplift one another.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

Powerful words. Yet, all too often, misunderstood words. We now insert a silent clause after the words "All Men", that reads; "that are not gay, too dark, too "not Christian-like", and any other discrepancies that we haven't yet seen, but are sure to hate."

I offer no solution. Just maybe for us all to exercise patience, love and understanding.

Just in case, the above in italics is from the Constitution of the United States. Same document that until recently, hadn't repealed slavery in all the states.

Sorry for the rant. I've. been keeping it bottled up for too long.
