You can't have one without the other

The concept of gays in a marriage
One side loves and one will disparage
But rule supreme court
And one side must retort
Justice just had a miscarriage


Author's note:  Regardless of the outcome from the supreme court, I happen to favor gay marriage.  There really is no other conclusion since we are a land of equal rights.  We should do all we can to foster a society without discrimination.  The arguments against these rights reveal a lot about certain people of religious persuasion.  It would be comical if it were not so sad.

    Humor is a sense shared by gays and straights so please go ahead and laugh. We are all good people on both sides of the equation.

    See my comment above. It's going to be OK. This is the least of society's problems. People need a break.

    Love is love! Who are we to discriminate against them. I favor gay marriages as well. Awesome topic and write. Hugs

    Duke! You just became my HERO! Seriously, this limerick is going straight into my favorites!! This is how I see it... how could the expression of love possibly be hurting anyone? The only people that are being hurt are the ones being discriminated against merely for loving another soul! You rock :)

    I'm with you on this one, Duke. Attaboy!! One of the worst kind of discrimination. I love your limerick. :)

    YAY for you. Stand up for what you believe. I was not sure how I felt about this a long time ago. I felt that "civil union" would be the way to go. But if they can't have civil unions in every state, then I guess they need to call it marriage. Love your title.

    Inspiration. So hard to humble ourselves in this aspect. Thanks for this. Always, Laura
