The Shut-in Stand-Up

A comedic look at modern life from the perspective of a traumatized but standing up shut-in.

Gay Marriage: Canada Edition


It’s not and it is at the same time

It’s not because Canada made it so and there was no social upheavals.

 

Okay, Quebec had a massive ice storm that year and most of BC was on fire, but I am sure that was just coincidence. Those things do happen regularly.

 

I think it’s because we think that religious people and secular people have the same understanding of the law. and we don’t.

Religious people are about status quo, conformity and worship of authority. So there is no questioning authority.

They see marriage as between a man and woman – and cannot extend it to see marriage as an entitlement based on citizenship,

 

They see anyone who is unwilling to conform, as undeserving. No conformity, no cookie.

 

So when we talk marriage, we use the same words to mean different things.

 

AND if we could talk about marriage as a secular thing and leave any religion to the people – we could have the conversation.

Mostly, I think America needs to see married gays and lesbians to see that our families are pretty much the same as theirs

only we teach our children to understand the world they live in and participate, make it better

 

not just children to conform to gender roles, uphold the status quo, and go along to get along.

 

but to respect the campfire rule of leaving people and places in as good or better state than when you encountered them
