This morning I poured me a cup of coffee, turned the TV on, picked up my knitting and sat down into my favorite chair to begin knitting while taking in a little TV at the same time.
I was once again expecting to hear about the Jodi Arias Trial, and was all set to change the channel, however instead I heard a Newscaster talking about Conservative Republican Senator (Ohio) Rob Portman.
In 2011 one of his sons told him he was gay
Senator Portman recently came out about this publicly .......
When it hits home or close to home it makes you reconsider your thoughts on someone being gay.
"I have come to believe that if two people are prepared to make a lifetime commitment to love and care for each other in good times and in bad, the government shouldn't deny them the opportunity to get married," he wrote.
As a member of the House in 1996, Portman voted in favor of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman and bars federal recognition of same-sex marriage.
I know it wasn't an easy decision for him to take this out in the open I am very proud of him for speaking out...
Now that this has become public knowledge maybe it will help others who are against gay marriage to wake up and realize gays and Lesbians want the same as everyone else.
In the past on these blogs some have left comments about gays some positive comments and some very negative. Those that left negative comments appeared to be afraid of a gay man. Some show themselves as bigots calling gays an old fashion name "Queer" which isn't used much these days.
I have always wondered what they would do if one of their sons or daughters, or grandkids should some day come out of the closet and tell them straight up "I'm Gay" Would they be like Rob Portman ? Or would the gay or lesbian be thrown out of the family?
I will end this blog by saying................
Gays have always been among us . God is our maker and he not only made straight he also made gay.
