George Takei has gone where no famous man (but two plenty famous women) has gone before, tying the knot with his partner of 21 years, Brad Altman, Sunday night in Los Angeles in front of 200 of their closest pals, including fellow Trekkers Leonard Nimoy, Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols.
Super cool. Guess what? Two dudes just got married and it did not, nor will it ever, have a negative effect on my marriage.
Even Obama believes marriage is between one dude and one chick, but if you look at the two parties, there is no doubt the Dems, I feel, are on the right side of this issue. (Don’t worry, they are still wrong on 99% of the other issues..) I don’t look at it from a liberal point of view, though. If two peeps want to get married who is the government to tell them they can or can’t. (Other then saying what the legal age is obviously.)
I don’t get the religious argument either. Churches can marry who they want. The government can’t come in and force a church to marry two people that they don’t want to.
A dude and a chick can get meet in Vegas, get drunk, get married and somehow that’s not a problem, but two chicks or two dudes who have been together for 20 years and want to get married.. That’s a problem? It does not compute.
If you really want to shore up marriage, I have the perfect solution. Outlaw divorce!
Congratulations Mr. Sulu! Live long and prosper!
