I was so ashamed and embarrassed when I drove by Starbucks yesterday. There were protesters with signs regarding gay marriage in Washington state. I guess Starbucks is for gay marriage, as I am.

I'm not gay, so you can hate me if you want, but if the subject bothers you turn a blind eye. If you don't want to hear about it, plug your ears. If you can't say anything nice, then bury your head in the sand and stay ignorant!

It isn't going to go away, so why fight it and bring so much torment and sorrow to those who have done nothing to hurt you.

So next time you go to the doctor, dinner, school or talk to your neighbor whom you like so well, you might be surprised because they just might be gay. Stop hating! Have a wonderful day.
