Racism? You Don’t Say?

Points are spot on here~

Michael’s thoughts on marriage equality in Illinois!

Michael Mandrake


Yesterday marked the 1st day of marriage equality in Illinois

And today, I hope to see lots of update about same sex couples across the state getting their licenses and going to city hall.

My biggest thing is, why would anyone deny someone their basic freedoms?

Everyone should be able to fall in love regardless of gender and or orientation.

What are the so called critics of same sex marriage afraid of?

Seeing 2 men getting married is a detriment to your marriage?

How so?

I’m still waiting for a good reason why people feel the GLBTQ community shouldn’t be able to get married.

Why is this?

Because they’re is no reason.

It’s pride month too so celebrate and hold your heads high, peeps.

Celebrate diversity and equality in every way
