In Response To: You Are Right It is Not New (Ras Marcus)
Blessings Ras Marcus,
***So, it may have been going on for a very long time in history, but that does not make it right, and how does the explosion of same sex marriage suddenly all over the world, become helpful to humanity in this time? Can you give me any ideas?***
I don't know, Baba. But I think that homosexual people are fighting to be recognized as citizens with the same rights as other citizens and so including the right to be married and recognized by their countries as married couples. Some people believe that a society that recognizes equal rights for all of its citizens will be a more humane society. So maybe it is also part of a bigger question of citizenship, what it means to be acknowledged as a citizen of any given nation (and by who?), and how being defined as 'citizens' is different, if at all, from being recognized as a human being.
Ras Marcus, I want the I to know that I have read all of your posts in this thread and hope that you do not consider me to be taking this lightly. I have done my best to be respectful and I sight that you have repeatedly stated that you do not support hatred and violence toward homosexuals.
