Equality

I have this friend Sean. Many of you know him. He is a tough, hard-assed, and shrewd logical thinker. Everything he believes is firmly entrenched in logic. He's also a Conservative Christian, and doesn't like "gay marriage." Needless to say, this has been a topic of debate between the two of us for some time.

A month ago, I was going to make a post about how we were debating the issue, and for the first time in a long time, I felt like I had held my ground. That was an important day for me, because I get a bit touchy when my friends and family fail to see the logic against them.

Yesterday, the issue came up in conversation again, and he conceded. So long as there is a legal institution of marriage, it has to be applied equally to all couples seeking it. Regardless as to whether or not they're dirty homo queer fags.

This is my 300th post.
