The gay movement has been around for many decades. Although history is replete with examples of individual struggles, recent decades have brought to the forefront an example of struggle regarding sexuality. The 1970's had a slogan, "it's all about sex". The 1980's and 1990's also provided numerous examples of their battle with society. In the newest decade, the gay movement continues to try to blend into the mainstream of societal norms and continue to find overwhelming resistance. People with strong religious beliefs feel that gay relationships are wrong and against God's Word in the Bible. I think that people are just afraid of what they don't know about.

Proposition 22 should not even been put onto the ballot. The government has no right going into other people's bedrooms. Homosexuals have been fighting this battle for way too long. This must stop. This is a very private issue and should be kept that way.

This is between the homosexual couple and themselves. No one else, especially the government, should be allowed to interfere. Where in the constitution does it say that the government is allowed to step into people's lives and mess around with them? Our wonderfully corrupt government has no just cause for wasting valuable tax dollars on an issue so personal.

The gay movement cries out to the public. Saying that they are normal and should be treated just like any other married couple. Most people think otherwise, such as people of strong religious beliefs or high societal standings. These people believe that gay relationships are wrong and unlawful. People are afraid of what they don't know about. If they don't want to be bothered with gay relationships, then they shouldn't pay so much attention to it. People need to learn that the world we live in is not some fantasy world. In fact, some parts are rather ugly. It's nice to have an opinion and voice that opinion from time to time, but making a law for this issue is extremely unnecessary.

A topic such as this is not easily put to rest. The government has dug this up and can't just shove it back into some filing cabinet. They must deal with it, right here, right now. They thought it was a problem, so now it has become their problem to deal with it. As this country ages and matures, so will the people, along with the laws. But the government will stay the same, corrupt as ever, dwelling on frivolous concerns such as this, which just waste time and tax money. I have only one thing to say to the government, "It's none of your business"!
