Gay, want to be married? Live in Albany? I don't think so.

The big controversy going on right now, spreading throughout the US is the gay marriage controversy.

In one particular article i found, which discusses several states views, a mayor in Albany, NY was barrred by a state judge. I think that gay people have rights too. I am one hundred percent straight, but i see no problem with gay people. They are people too, they have two arms, two legs, two eyes, two ears, a nose, they are human beings. They have feelings, they have opinions, they have voices. Trying to deny gay people rights reminds me of those who try to deny colored people rights, or women their own abortion rights. This is a supposed country of free choice, people move here everyday, so that they may have a choice, and here officials are, trying to restrict people. Ok, so you cheat on your husband, have three kids out of wedlock, and highly disobey your parents. These things are not moral, constitutional, or going along with the Ten Commandments, or so is some peoples opinion. And thats just it, their OPINION. They have a right to it, they have a right to do what they want, what they consider moral, i don't see that person being called a slut, or a disobidient child by high up officials. Gay marriage is just another right to be claimed, just another right that should be claimed. For goodness sakes, they like the same sex. SO WHAT? Why does that make them less of a person?

Homosexuality is the hot topic right now.

I don't know if I agree with your opinions, but you are picking up on journalistic stuff. Go creative writer, Lori.
