Gay marriage hurts no one

April 30, 2013 

Many people are quoting the Bible "preaching" against same sex marriages. It will soon be the law of the land in Illinois and these people will have to practice their Christian values and live and let live.

Same sex marriages won't hurt any one. They won't hurt heterosexual couples and they won't hurt society in general. They won't hurt children. There are a whole lot more important things to concern ones self about than preventing anyone from marrying whoever they love and withholding the same rights they deserve that married couples have now.
