"I assume that those who cling to old beliefs will be able to whisper their thoughts in the recesses of their homes, but if they repeat those views in public, they will risk being labeled as bigots and treated as such by governments, employers, and schools." -Justice Alito
Well, I've taken a couple of days to compose myself and collect my thoughts. I turned off my television and limited my social media exposure. There has been so much hatred spewed and so many feelings hurt during the past four days. There have been families divided and friendships ended. People on both sides of this decision have been sharing their opinions, sharing their hearts and changing their profile pictures. Unfortunately, many who have chosen to openly support marriage, (I will not recognize gay marriage. Marriage, for the purposes of this blog, is defined between one man and one woman.) have been shut down, ridiculed and called horribly offensive names. And I must say, I have seen some terribly offensive and completely inappropriate things said about those who support same-sex marriage. None of it is okay. And we should all be ashamed of ourselves.
