Don't want to ge involved with something that has 0 effect on me.
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
It's easy to get away with inactivity when you aren't the one being oppressed or singled out... it's not your problem, after all... until one day your son comes out of the closet, terrified of a world that hates him for the way he is. How will you explain to him how it isn't your problem?
1) I evoke Godwin's Law...
2) If my son came out of the closet I would support his choice. The world doesn't hate gay people. Just a few fundamentalists do.
I guess by this logic I shouldn't care about the famine and genocide in Africa because it has 0 effect on me.
I see it an issue with gays and the legal system. Don't want to ge involved with something that has 0 effect on me.
I donated 5 bucks at my local charity for aid to the famine. It isn't much but it is what I could spare at the moment. I don't see gays dying and starving in the masses like in Somalia.
My view on marraige is that government should get out of marriage. Its the individual commitment to theit partner that makes the marraige special not a marraige certificate.
