So I met this really nice/good looking/sweet guy named Jason. So far he's been the sweetest guy to me and things between us have been going well. I was waiting to figure out what was wrong with him, I know that sounds silly but he was just too perfect to be true. Well last night I found out and I'm super confused. I was talking to him about how silly it is that Iowa voted to allow same sex marriage but California voted to take that right away from them again. I said that CA should have been the first to make same sex marriage legal and it should never have been overturned and I looked at him cause he was all quiet and I said "right?" Well he doesn't agree, he doesn't think same sex marriage should be legal and furthermore he thinks homosexuality is wrong. *sigh*

I'm a human rights activist. For starters I have a lot of gay loved ones and I don't think their way of life is "wrong." In fact I believe your sexuality is innate and if God made everybody that means s/he made them that way too and to slight Gods work is a slight against God. More important to me though is that I believe NO MATTER WHAT all humans deserve every human right. Marriage is a HUMAN right and nobody should be denied that.

So that left me thinking, is that a deal breaker for me? Could I be with somebody that thinks my friends and loved ones way of life is "wrong?" Could I be with somebody that thinks people should be denied their human rights just because they are gay?? I'm thinking no. He's a nice guy and I don't want to hurt him but when I day dream about the man I'm going to be with forever he at least feels the same way I do about this. It wouldn't be a big deal if it wasn't so important to me. *sigh* now I have to tell him how I feel and hope he understands.

Amen sister. That would be a dealbreaker for me too.

and here I was second guessing myself....
Thank you!! I've been going through all of it in my head and I was wonderinng is this is really something I can't handle or am I just looking for a way to push this guy away (I have some trust issues and tend to do that). Obviously I decided that I really can't handle somebody that close minded and the reaction from my friends has been completely supportive.

Re: and here I was second guessing myself....
No, I think it's totally justified. And really, I know it was fairly new, but imagine if you had kids with this guy...how could you raise kids with such different viewpoints on such a big topic? Which reminds me I've been meaning to ask you if you still talk to Zach Walker?

I haven't spoken with Zach in a LONG time. I don't even know how to contact him otherwise I definately would!
