My opinion about legislating same sex marriage

If ever I become Senator, I would approve any proposed legislation to allow LGBT to get married, HOWEVER with a special provision that it be allowed only by those who tolerate it, without prejudice to the service provider's rights of refusal. Not everything that is legal can be pushed for consumption down the throat of all - the minister and owner of the business still has rights to conspicuously display a signage that such thing is not allowed in his establishment. Forcing a religious minister to marry a LBGT couple is similar to forcing in pork into the mouth of Muslims, it's gonna result to armed conflict. If a particular minister refuses, then the customer should just find some other minister. I cannot allow a legal charge against those who refuse. This is how my egalitarian ideology puts this issue in proper order.

Election is not gambling

ELECTION IS NOT GAMBLING The only prize we get if we vote for the winnable brands of the usual politicians is the same frustration and disappointment that we get in the government’s performance now. We, the people, will be loser in the end if we vote for those who appear to be winnable in surveys an advertisements. Let's take the road less travelled by increasing our curiosity and liking for new brands of politicians who braved to challenge the usual winners. There is more hope in new names because their feet are in our shoes – they feel the same frustration as we do.
