So which rights should gays be given by the state? Should they be allowed to get married? Have kids? Serve in the military? This issue seems to be one of those subjects that everyone has an opinion on.
It’s a complex question. But here’s my simple answer: Give unto them whichever right you’d give unto yourself. In the words of that famous Jewish sage:
“That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow. That is the whole of God’s teachings (the Torah); the rest is the explanation; go and learn.” (Hillel the Elder, 1st century BCE)
There you have it. Love thy gays just as you love thyself, you vag-licking heteros.
I’m happy to be featured again in FMyLife.com, one of the funniest websites I know. In case you’re not familiar with it, FMyLife (or FML) is a very popular website/blog that allows people to post short stories about how shitty their lives are. The website has an English version and a French version (called VDM).
(Read the interview, it contains a personal FML by me. Teehee).
For the record, I’m Jewish and have never celebrated Christmas.
Whichever holiday you celebrate, whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Festivus – you should celebrate it proudly, and you should have the right to celebrate it in public.
Happy holidays, and see you in 2015!
