SMH! Get it together, Arkansas!

Why? And on Valentine's Day, no less. Classy. Real classy.

So apparently this Republican Senator wants to amend the Constitution to define marriage as being between one man and one woman. I don't understand. Why does the thought of two men or two women, etc., bother you to the point where you feel like they shouldn't get the same legal protections and benefits as a heterosexual couple? Are the same-sex couples not in loving relationships? Are they not dedicating their lives to one another? Aren't those the things that Christian marriage are supposed to be founded on? I assume that's part of his platform, because we all know how good Republicans are at using Christianity to strip people of their rights.

Never mind the fact that marriage, at its core, is a legal institution. Never mind the fact that Christianity does not own marriage. Never mind the fact that the LGBTQ community gets slammed for being promiscuous, but then you don't want them to be able to get married.

Again, I have to ask, how is same-sex marriage hurting "regular" marriage? Are men and women who've known each other for 5 minutes and bonded over a bottle of tequila no longer able to elope in Las Vegas? Are they no longer able to spend $50K+ on a lavish wedding and reception at their church? What is the issue? Obviously, we know what the issue is.

The part that saddens me the most is that in 2017, people still feel like the "right thing" is to deny someone else their rights. How can that ever be seen as right and just?

Happy Valentine's Day indeed.
