Don’t usually do this…

Standard

I try to stay out of hot-button issues, in part because I don’t find the back and forth of debate to be enjoyable.  However, I’m going to bend that slightly for a money quote:

‎”A private moral view that same-sex couples are inferior to opposite-sex couples is not a proper basis for legislation.” — Justice Walker

Marriage is a legal contract, not a religious one.  If your objection to the equal legal rights of a group are based on religious belief, they really don’t have a part in the law.  If you’re upset and up in arms because Prop 8 is overturned, I sympathize…  but your morals aren’t more important than the rights of others.

Ethics > Morals, yo.
