JESSE VENTURA DEFENDS GAY RIGHTS MOVEMENT
On Jesse Ventura's online show "Off The Grid," he examines what states legalized same-sex marriage, what states banned it, and he gives his opinion on all of it. He considers the gay rights movement as "the civil rights movement of today."
Jesse Ventura is an outspoken supporter and advocate of gay rights. Here's an excerpt from his weekly blog:
I think it’s easy for me to look at gay rights objectively because I’m an atheist. I don’t have a book dictating to me that some people have a right to get married and some people don’t. I don’t have that prejudice in my heart. I don’t look at same sex marriage as a Republican issue or a Democratic issue. I look at it as a civil rights issue, because that’s exactly what it is. The majority is denying the minority the basic right of falling in love and officially stating that they want to live together as a couple, as a family unit, as legal partners.
Those same Tea Party-types, who are always harping about how we need LESS Government, are actually the ones really pushing for MORE Government by trying to legislate what people can and can’t do with their personal lives. The hypocrisy is astounding.
I am asking the American people to be objective, to be fair, to do what’s right. You don’t have to agree with someone else’s choices, but those choices are that person’s right to make. Don’t deny people the right to live as the Bill of Rights and the Constitution intended us all to live: as equals.
