Local Marylander Explains The Joy He Feels After Seeing Gay Marriage Bill Die

After effectively killing the chances of a same-sex marriage bill moving through the House and onto Gov. Martin O’Malley’s desk, the state has at least one very happy resident. His name is Michael Simas, and he couldn’t resist writing into his local newspaper, the Carroll County Times, to express his relief.

I applaud the Maryland House for standing up for what is undeniably right and opposing gay marriage.

The gay marriage proponents based their beliefs on what I consider two lies that they repeat over and over, the first being that individuals currently living the homosexual lifestyle are born that way and have no choice, which I believe is false because as of the writing of this letter no factual evidence has ever been found producing the definitive genetic link of gay at birth, despite untold millions and time poured into finding such link. The gay lobby repeats this lie often enough that most people just accept it.

The second lie is that they do not have equal rights. Sure they do. They have the same inalienable rights that every other American is born with. They have the right to marry, provided it’s with someone of the opposite sex. What they seek is to have the law changed based upon the lifestyle choice they made. If that’s the case I have a lifestyle that would be easier if I didn’t have to pay taxes. I’d like those laws changed.

Really when you boil it all down, it is my personal belief that gays don’t really want to be married, they want their lifestyle choice normalized, and marriage is just the vehicle they are driving to get there. Only there is nowhere to park that vehicle.

Michael Simas, Westminster

Yeah, all you demonstrators are really just yearning to listen to yourselves speak, not walk down the aisle.

      Standard Lies used by the right to spread disinformation and ignorance other wise know as Talking Points.

      The point is that this is the type of trash we are up against. The people who say being gay is a choice I’m 100% sure have bisexual tendencies and choose to repress their homosexual desires out of self-hate, and take their shit out on others or think others have to live the way they do. It’s pretty obvious to me.

      Anyway, marriage equality is coming, these people are dying off, and quite frankly, who cares?

      I have just two things to say in response to him.

      1. Even though people like all those child raping evangelical minsters keep saying that there is no proo gays are born different….funny how they keep ignoring multiple studies that say just that. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/06/080617151845.htm

      2. Lets pretend for a second that he is right and gays aren’t born different. Well nobody is BORN into a religion either and yet I would be willing to bet that this person believes his religious behavior should be protected.

      i agree with this part,

      …they want their lifestyle choice normalized, and marriage is just the vehicle they are driving to get there…

      so few of us fighting for the right to marry, don’t actually have someone to marry, but this movement in gay rights is about being accepted, and the right to marry would normalize us in the eyes of those who don’t know what to think.

      I honestly cannot read rhetoric like what Michael Simas wrote, anymore. It’s getting to the point where all I want to do is quarantine these people for being so fucking ignorant, arrogant, and judgmental. And the worst part is that there are no real penalties for them expressing these unjust, unfounded, and prejudiced opinions.

      How dare they speak this way, and how dare any news publication publish this absolute nonsense. It is bigotry and UNACCEPTABLE.

      Michael Simas, you and those like you have blood and death on your hands! Shame on you, you sick bastard!

      The second argument is always a fun one to hear. I mean, blacks had the same equal rights in the 60s. They could marry just like everyone else, provided it was to someone of the same race.

      I guess Mr. Simas doesn’t realize that should Maryland allow same-sex marriage, he too will be able to marry a man. What’s that? He says he would never dream of such a thing? Then why is he bringing up the fact that gays can marry persons of the opposite sex?

      1. Genes are incredibly complicated. No one knows where “the eye color gene” or “the left-handed gene” is either – genes work together to produce traits. Some genes have a greater affect than others on certain traits. One specific gene will typically only increase the likelyhood of a trait being expressed. And the fact is that scientists have discovered at least one gene that increases the likelyhood of being gay – which is actually quite impressive considering it’s far more difficult to distinguish gay/straight/bi than it is to distinguish eye color or handedness.

      2. The discrimination is not that gay people are not allowed to get married. We are. But we are not allowed to get married to someone of the sex that we are naturally attracted to, and straight people are. That’s the crux of the discrimination.

      “no factual evidence has ever been found producing the definitive genetic link of gay at birth”

      So I hear evolution is just a theory. and so is gravity.

      I agree with you. Every time I read that I think “this is who Hitler should have killed.” It does not lower you to their level to wish them dead. Tolerating intolerance is enabling intolerance.
