I'm not quite sure if anyone from class reads this besides our professor, but I'd like to apologize for my strong opinions that I expressed earlier in class today. The issue of gay-marriage hits really close to home, as I have a aunt who is fighting for her right to wed her partner of 6 years. I love her, respect her, and I believe that she has every right to be married just like me. Granted maybe she shouldn't be married in a church, if that is your opinion, but she should still receive the same benefits and respect that married couples receive.
Again, I am sorry for the outburst.
