In which Hank discusses marriage equality, which isn't actually an issue of marriage equality, it's an issue of human equality, and the fact that we're still struggling with it is very disappointing.

'Gay marriage is unnatural' Marriage is unnatural... How many times have you seen little sparrows dress up in gowns and suits and have a lawfully binding ceremony to get married?

It's awesome to look back on this video and see what all has changed on that front since then. I'll never forget how hard my parents hugged me when the ruling came through. They were finally going to be able to see their only son get married.

I am Christian. Don't freak out. I think that if Jesus were alive today, that he would want us to treat homosexual people just as heterosexual people. I think that God does not judge others, and if "them gays are sinners" then we should forgive them and let them go as they please. I think that they deserve equal rights. Also, when others argue the argument that homosexuals have a choice, just think of it like this: "Oh, I have a great idea! I'm going to choose to be hated be much of the world and possibly be shunned by my family and society just because I want to! This is a great idea!" I just think that they don't have a choice and that if you are truly religious that you should love every person, whether you agree with their way of life or not, because God would say that we should love others. As said by +kitkat mat​​ (Asked me to add this) "There are many people who are both Christian and Homosexual who wish to marry there significant other and have that union recognized by their church. Many Christian churches (as well as of course churches of different religions) have recently become more accepting of the LGBTQPA community, and something important to understand is that nothing can stay the same forever. The Christian religion has evolved quite a bit since its origin, (considering that the Bible says that it's our duty to stone adulterers and burn witches as mentioned in many comments here, and obviously murder and stoning is a very bad thing to do I hope we agree on that.) The principle of marriage shouldn't be dictated by any one party for many reasons (this is my own opinion). One is that when one assigns a one definition of marriage and uses that as an excuse to oppress or limit any individual's or group of people's religious and/or spiritual freedoms, it is no longer a question of law, but of morality and ethics. Rather, marriage is defined by those taking part in the union. Taking this into consideration I can't tell you that your definition of marriage is wrong just because I have a different one. It may be one person's belief that marriage is a means to expand wealth and profit, and another person that believes that marriage is for attraction and mutual respect. I cannot say (without sounding like an idiot) that all people who marry, do so for the latter reason. Bit of a tangent there, but the point I'm trying to make is that your definitions of marriage may conflict with mine, but.... I DON"T GIVE A ** :) food for thought."

This video couldn't be more on point
Why do people try to stop me from marrying my fiance? What did we ever do to you to deserve being treated like second class citizens?
