My Thoughts On Eastleigh Election and Same-Sex Marriage
Since Chris Huhne quit being the MP of my hometown Eastleigh, tomorrow it’s voting time to find his replacement.
It’s disappointing to see so many of the candidates are against same sex marriage purely because of their religious views.
Whoever is elected should represent the whole community, not just their own opinions and beliefs. Not everyone is the same and that’s what makes this world great. Where would we draw the line at saying who can and cannot do certain things? It seems crazy now to think women couldn’t vote 100 years ago and that people used to have to use different toilets just because of their skin colour. In a few years we will look back at this in the same light. It’s old fashioned and a small minded viewpoint, I just hope the people of Eastleigh make the right decision.
I have no issues with religion at all, but I don’t think an MP should let it affect their decisions. It also worries me that some of the candidates have strong links to local schools, you don’t choose your sexuality, gender or race and it’s important to send out the right message. I didn’t intend to get political, I just don’t think it’s fair people in power should make such a huge decision on something you cannot choose (sexuality)based on something that they do decide on (religion).
I don’t see myself ever getting married (Still only 20!) but when it comes to ruining the values of marriage? Well earlier this week Katie Price announced her fourth pregnancy. She now has four kids with three different fathers and has allegedly had several partners in-between. Think about that when you’re talking about family values. As long as people are happy and children are loved, who cares?
