The People's Resolution Opposing Tennessee House Joint Resolution 529 on Marriage Equality

Sign on as a co-sponsor of the People's Resolution Opposing Tennessee House Joint Resolution 529 on Marriage Equality.

WHEREAS, Rep.  Susan Lynn has introduced a resolution urging the members of the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee to express their disagreement with the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges; and

WHEREAS, the Tennessee Constitution affirms "That the citizens have a right, in a peaceable manner, to assemble together, for their common good, to instruct their representatives, and to apply to those invested with the powers of government for redress of grievances or other proper purposes, by address or remonstrance;" and

WHEREAS, the State of Tennessee ought to be focused on the legal equality of all its people rather than attacking the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community; and

WHEREAS, "the equal protection of the laws" is a cherished principle in American jurisprudence; now, therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, that we oppose House Joint Resolution 529 and urge the members of the 109th General Assembly of the State of Tennessee to uphold the entire Constitution of the United States, including the Fourteenth Amendment, and cease their legislative attacks on gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people.

    I am a thinking human and I know that someone else’s marriage is no threat to my own. Let love rule!

    All humans deserve to be happy. If two humans of legal consensual age wish to be together and take care of each other legally and otherwise no one else’s belief or view or opinion or theory should matter. I know couples who are of the same sex who are more loyal and devoted and strong and happier than those who are of opposite sexes. Why would anyone deny someone to be with the human they love as long again as they are of legal consensual age. I honestly do not see why it or how it effects anyone but those two people on a day to day everyday view of life. Legally those people because they shared and loved have expenses and things they need to be able to have the benefits of that just like any other set of people. Love is Love and honestly there is nothing wrong with it at all. Be happy someone found someone they can rely on and care about. It is sad not to have anyone or to be with someone who doesn’t really want to be with you.. That is why people cheat.. They are living lies just to please someone else. That is wrong. Honestly think about yourself and how you would feel for a complete stranger to tell you that you should not be happy because of their belief and you should not be with that man or women you are in love with because that person feels it is wrong.. Their theory, their belief , what they were taught, Who asked them? I would hope you would turn around and say you know what.. I might join you later on in hell but why don’t you get a head start and go there and mind your own business and let me love, live and be happy….
