I had a hard time stomaching the Oscars last night. Driving home from Stu's parents house, we talked a little bit about our feelings on the speeches that were given. I guess actors know how much clout they hold with the American public and some decided to use the Academy platform as a weapon against those opposing gay marriage. That's fine, everyone has a right to state their opinion, just as I am going to attempt to state mine..

I love this country. I love the freedoms that we have. I love that I have a right to believe and practice my religion. Although I may not agree with the way other people live, it is their right to live that way-just as it is my right to disagree with it. Maybe I'm a little EXTRA strong on this issue because I was just sealed to my wonderful husband less than two months ago and I can't picture it any other way, but I believe that "marriage" is between one man and one woman. This is one thing I hold sacred. This is how I KNOW God intended it to be. I also know that God intended that His children be happy and that we all love one another. I hope that no matter what we believe, we can show love to those around us always, no matter what they might believe.


I did not want my blog to become political, and I do not mean to offend anyone. If I did, I am sorry.

Perfectly said. That made me sick too, it's just such a sad thing. I think people just need to hear the gospel and feel the REAL happiness that it brings.

I agree. The Oscars always get a political! Your opinion is a good one. Obviously I'm a little biased. But this gay marriageness is a problem. They have their freedom of speech, and we have ours!
