Leather Goods, Trinkets and Equality


Mexico City has now legalized gay marriage.  What is wrong with Los Angeles?  And they had the Roman Catholic Church to deal with, we have Orange County.

According to the AFP, Javier Lozano Barragan, a Mexican cardinal, stated earlier this month that homosexuals and transexuals “will never make it to the kingdom of heaven.”  But, at least they have Mexico City now, Los Angeles…that is another story.

Whether one is for gay marriages or opposed, freedom for all should be an important issue we take a look at, and should have nothing to do with the sexual preference of a person.  It disturbs me how California is considered a liberal state with nothing that liberal about it. 

We say we believe in equality for all, but is that what we are putting out there? 

So, now not only can you cross the border for some inexpensive trinkets, leather goods and reasonably-priced seafood, you can tie the knot with the one you love, without judgement (until you return to Cali, of course)...just don’t drink the water.
