In this last election, one of the big topics was gay marriage. Mr. Bush, who has been re-elected, is once again pushing to ban marriage between gays, lesbians, and bisexual couples; so far the Senate and House have voted to not pass the amendment for the ban, but it looks like even that won't be necessary. Eleven states have passed bans on their own.
This is wrong. We live in the United States of America, where we're supposedly free. Homosexuals have every other right under the Constitution, so why not allow them to marry?
Discrimination, as defined in the dictionary is "Treatment or consideration based on class or category rather than individual merit; partiality or prejudice". Is that not what's going on? Are gays not being discriminated against?
It needs to stop; if we're truly free, we'd be able to marry whoever we wanted.
