This week I just decided to talk about Gay marriage bills that have been passed in states like in New York. In 2011 the state assembly passed the gay marriage bill. I would like to mention that in many countries, states, communities and organizations, laws, policies and statutes are passed without consulting all stakeholders. Poor people and minorities are always disfranchised through these laws passed by elites and the rich.
In New York the gay marriage bill was passed without consulting all New Yorkers. The gay marriage bill was passed to satisfy special interest groups which are composed of the rich. Gay or gay marriage is not only naturally immoral but also will lead to depopulation and death of religion (Weinstein, 2011).
I’m personally concerned about the fact that I will have to pay taxes to cater for two married men or two married women. I have always asked myself these questions; how just is it to legally allow men marry each other or women marry each other? Who would want to hear about men marrying each other? What is the essence of marriage? What is marriage itself? There are lots of questions that need to be answered. I’m very sure federal and state politicians are marred in this confusion. They support gays not because it is right but because they do not want to lose financial support from rich gay groups.
Another alarming issue that needs to be addressed is parents and their children that are caught up in this dilemma. It is becoming hard and difficult for parents to teach their children that gay acts are immoral since laws accept gays and proclaim that injustice has been done to them for not allowing them marry. In New York, gay marriage has increased exploitation of poor young men. Poor young men in New York are bought by gay rich men to full fill their fantasies (Spangenberg, 2001). These acts are seldom heard of because the media is controlled by the very groups.
Surprisingly gay groups have went ahead to promote gay interests in developing countries. Western countries are now tying accepting gays or losing aid. Uganda as an example, European countries have threatened to cut aid if Ugandan parliament passed anti-gay bill (fox-news, 2012).
