We like to consider our nation one that promotes equality. But isn’t
that a little hypocritical considering there are so many people in this
country who are denied the most basic civil rights? It shouldn’t matter
if you are straight, gay, bisexual, black, white, rich, poor… every citizen
deserves to be treated as an equal.

My good friend Joe Francis visited Washington DC this weekend to take part in the National Equality March
and marched with thousands of gay rights activists all standing up for
gay rights and rallying to demand that President Obama stand by what he
promised this weekend at the Human Rights Campaign.

I think what President Obama has said he will do to move gay
rights forward is such a huge step in the right direction. It is a
breath of fresh air to see a leader be so open minded, modern and
understanding of people of all lifestyles. I just hope he stands by his
word. Equal rights for everyone!!!!!

    Unless you’re gay yourself or have a gay friend or relative, you will never understand what they go through. They are human just like you and I. Therefore, they should have the same rights that everyone else has in this land where equal rights are promised

      Again, NO disrespect, but you should read everything I wrote before posting your opinion. I said several times that I am a supporter of gay rights, I just don’t agree how Kim approaches the situation as a Christian.

    I feel like everyone is so CONFUSED about what gay rights is about.
    It is NOT about religion.
    It has to do with government.
    LEGALLY married. (Think Seperation of church and state). You can still be religious and not spead hate to everyone different.

      I know that gay rights has to do with the government. I’m not saying that granting gay right has anything to do with religion, please understand that. I just think that Kim supporting a ‘sin’ & then claiming to live strong in her faith is not right.

    This isn’t about religion. A person who is gay will always be gay, whether you grant them rights or not. It’s not about marriage either. Civil unions that give couples rights are not asking for a marriage that is accepted by God and the church.

    Also, so many people in the U.S. get married without a priest and without any affiliation with a church, like in Vegas or at a court. That’s just as valid in the eyes of God as a “civil union” is. It’s just about RIGHTS. Being a Christian means not hating.

    Because she IS Christian, Kim is choosing not to hate and discriminate against people. As Christians, we cannot judge anyone. THAT IS NOT OUR JOB. She is choosing to stand up for their basic human rights that no one should be denied because of differences.

      I do not hate & discriminate against others. As I have said about 3 times, I DO support gay rights. I don’t think some of you are getting this. I am not judging anyone, I have love for ALL of you. I am simply voicing my opinion, nothing more.

        I understand where u r coming from. As a Catholic myself, it’s hard to learn 1 thing in church then grow up & love people who are openly gay & want equality. It’s a constant struggle. I just choose to support their basic rights & leave the rest up to God

    Thank you for understanding. I feel that some have been attacking me for “judging” Kim. When I came on here, I had no intention of making anyone upset or angry. I think it’s important to share our opinions, just respectfully.

    YAY! GO KIM! Love, don’t h8! I REALLY hope Obama sticks to his guns (and Congress helps pass these acts) because living in a more equal America will make me SO PROUD (even more so than I already am) to be an American!

    My aunt told me people who get married in the court and not in a church in the “eyes of god” are sinners and their children are doomed.I have Xtian friends who are just “legally married” that dont support gay rights. I wonder how they’d feel tables turned

    I just want to say that Jesus Christ is coming back soon, he said so in the bible. Lets get ready for his coming. Also to be a christian means to follow Jesus Christ , he is not a religion. To be a christian is to have a relationship with him. Talk to him.

    Whoever said that she/he hopes that President Obama will keep his word and the rest of the world should follow suit … I think you should just come out of your little bubble and not assume that other countries don’t take any positive initiatives until US of A starts it. There are many communities/countries in the world that don’t even care this much or oppose gay marriage this much. It is only in the Muslim and Christian worlds (both are related based on the history of these religions) that are so against it because both these religions are rules-based religions, not wisdom or philosophy based. The proof of this is the people that never think for themselves and keep saying “it is in the bible”. It is all about rules that somebody came up with long time ago and people being brain-washed to follow them. For example, eastern religions like Buddhism don’t even meddle with people’s daily lives like this … they just “provide” wisdom for people to elevate their mental state.

    I use the word “brainwash” because did it ever occur to these people that if they are quoting the bible, they are only talking about Christians. What about gays from other religions? Since they don’t have to care about what is in the bible, can they marry and have equal rights? I just wish all these Christians that quote bible only talk about Christian gays. But they always talk about all homosexuals as a whole as if the whole world/country has to follow the bible. It will teach them a lesson if non-christian gays are allowed to marry because whatever their religions are, don’t oppose it.

    And somebody said Kim shouldn’t support it because it is a sin and as a Christian she shouldn’t sin. Oh really, Christians don’t sin? Why don’t you learn about Christian Crusades of earlier times and Christian of current times? The unfortunate thing is these are the only 2 religions that are actively converting the whole world to their respective religions using billions of dollars and other deceptive ways. But none of this comes out in the news because they have all the powers.

      Of course Christians sin, but I think when it comes to sin it’s about realizing your sin and then trying to make things right with God. I am certainly not calling out any gays’ at all, I am in no position to judge. I hope you understand.
