Four More Years

It is important to realize in this post-fairly-progressive-election season that just because other people get rights you don’t agree with doesn’t mean those people have taken away any of your rights.

To my family and friends who are disappointed today:

Just because my friends in Washington can finally get married doesn’t mean you can’t. Just because they get to be in love and in healthy relationships and build families just means that there are more people like you and that family means even more.

Just because people can get stoned doesn’t mean you have to.

Just because I get to believe I am worthwhile doesn’t mean you have to believe women are, though you should. And I will keep trying to convince you.

This country was never built on Christianity and it was never built on the idea that some people are more equal than others. If you are worried about socialism and worried about losing your rights, then don’t ruin the opportunities of others to rise through capitalism  or to enjoy the same rights as you.

And don’t forget, Barack Obama is a Christian man, so you are still in the lead over any other kind of person that exists.

You didn’t lose anything, you gained another four years to prove you know how to love.
