As a civil libertarian, I never understood why some people feel the need to dictate other people’s private lives, specifically in the matter of gay marriage. And especially during a time when we, as a nation, displayed our progressiveness by electing the nation’s first black president.

I know it’s a religion thing, but that is exactly why I don’t understand it. If our democracy was founded on the principles that protected those who were persecuted for their religion, why should some use their religion to deny others certain rights?

It’s not like we’re going to turn gay people straight by denying them the right to marry.

On the contrary. The recent passage of laws in Florida, California and Arizona that banned same-sex marriage prompted more than one million people across the United States to take to the streets in protest, including more than 1,000 in Fort Lauderdale.
