The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

John Locke Supports Gay Marriage

This Post is in response to Governor Schwartzenegger's recent claim on Meet the Press regarding the gay marriages in San Francisco.

During his interview, Mr. Schwartzenegger gave the following reason as why the City must stop issuing wedding licenses immediately. He stated that "all of a sudden, we see riots and we see protests and we see people clashing. The next thing we know is there are injured or there are dead people, and we don't want to have that. We don't want to get to that extent."

I feel that Mr. Schwartzenegger's statements are extremely misleading and that no matter where you stand on the gay marriage issue, it is important that you know the truth. First of all, there have been no riots and no people clashing. The only protests were done by a very small number of hateful people who tried to prevent other people from entering City Hall. The disruption lasted a grand total of only fifteen minutes of the last two weeks, and the people who tried to block City Hall were removed without incident.

There have been no injuries and there have been no killings. For the record, there haven't even been any fights.

As someone who lives and works near San Francisco, the only thing we have seen over the last few weeks is several thousand devoted couples sharing their love with each other and with society. Even with people waiting hours and even days outside in the rain, people have remained happy and upbeat. So, for the record, I believe that Mr. Schwartzenegger has misled the entire country (and I mean that in the nicest possible sense).

I can't tell you which version of the "truth" you should believe, but I urge you to do your own research.

That being said, I also believe it important that you know where I stand on this issue. I do not believe that gay marriage will be the downfall of our civilization or that gay marriage will somehow cheapen or threaten my marriage. For the record, I support equal rights for all, and I fully and whole-heartedly support gay marriage.

Sincerely,

John Locke
