Oklahoma private investigators, process servers and other professionals should support marriage equality. After all, this is the twenty-first century. Those that inhabit our world should not be living back in the medieval ages, and we have an inherent responsibility to learn, grow, and evolve. There are numerous reasons that Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers (OJPS) www.OklahomaJudicialProcessServers.com supports marriage equality, and our company contends that others definitely should, too.
Most of the people who rant against those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and/or transgendered cite religious sources. These same religious tomes such as the Bible also condemn working on the Sabbath and wearing cloth made from more than one fabric. The Old Testament section of the Bible, upon which the basis for condemning homosexuality is made, also allows for slavery and the selling of our daughters. Sadly, the list goes on and on. The West Wing did a rather praiseworthy job of showing the fallacies of such contentions here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1-ip47WYWc. Process Servers and private investigators should take some time to view this YouTube video.
Is our population so backward and stuck in the past that the best we can do is to thump the Bible or some other religious text? Are we seriously that out of touch with reality? Even various prominent cardinals have asserted that the Roman Catholic Church, among other religious institutions, is at least 200 years behind the times, and look what is happening to it. Christ and other spiritual leaders/guides preached love, acceptance, humility, and the importance of not judging one another, but all too often the very opposite happens. Sadly, religion is not the only basis upon which human process servers, private investigators, and deception experts who oppose marriage equality make their contentions.
Many Oklahoma private investigators and other humans assert, “Well, being gay or lesbian is a choice.” Really? Well, the last time I checked, I and everyone I know have found ourselves unable to simply go wake up tomorrow and say, “Well, today I am heterosexual, but tomorrow I think I will be homosexual. Then the day after that I think I will choose to be bisexual.” The same thing applies to those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered. Who among you reading this can make the decision to change your sexual orientation or identity with the snap of your fingers? Many people have tried to do so for years, only to suffer horribly and not have any success with it. Indeed, even prestigious organizations like the American Medical Association (AMA) have shown their support for marriage equality and equal rights for the LGBT community.
Numerous anti-gay advocates, including many process servers, private investigators, and notary public officials, have contended that parents who are gay will turn their kids gay. Well, if that is the case, then why is it that all of these “straight” parents keep having kids who are LGBT? Likewise, there is no empirical evidence to prove that parents who are gay or lesbian will “turn their kids gay”. This assertion is absurd, and we should be careful not to spread hatred and bigotry off of yet another incredibly fallible assertion
Then there is the issue of whether or not two mummies or two daddies can properly raise a child or several children. The answer is clear: yes, they can! Once again, there is no empirical evidence to show that two mummies or daddies raising kids do a better or worse job than the “traditional” mummy and daddy combination. Besides, how many kids grow up with parents who are divorced, on drugs, in jail, abusive parents, and even parents who simply do not want to be involved in their children’s lives? Any kid with two loving and dedicated mummies, daddies, or a mummy/daddy combination is extremely lucky!
Process servers, private investigators, notaries, and others who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and/or transgendered are not bad people, are not going to “Hell”, and should have the same right to enjoy all of the benefits of legalized marriage as their heterosexual counterparts. By preventing the LGBT community from enjoying the same financial benefits, having their marriage formally legalized, and ensuring their right to adopt, our society is causing a great deal of harm to a population that is already oppressed.
Likewise, kids born to or adopted by LGBT couples will also appreciate having happier parents and getting to be adopted by other females and males who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and/or transgendered. Children need stable families, and same sex couples are just as capable of providing these high quality homes as their heterosexual counterparts. It is cruel and unusual punishment to condemn any Oklahoma process server, private investigator, bail bonds agent, notary public, or other individual who is LGBT, including their kids, for mere trifles.
If the states will not act to ensure the rights they should already have under the Section One of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which reads as follows, as noted here http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/amendmentxiv:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
By failing to actively require our government to enforce this basic civil right for those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and/or transgendered, each private investigator, process server, notary public, deception expert, and other human being in Oklahoma and elsewhere has failed in his or her duty to really love others. There is simply no loving, conscionable reason to discriminate against them. Almost 200 other species are gay, and yet only humans have turned to hatred. Perhaps we are not the most “advanced” species of all after all?
Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers recognizes that hatred and bigotry based upon such things as race, religion (or the lack thereof), age, gender, sexual orientation, transgendered status, height, weight, marital status, nationality, veteran status, political affiliation, ethnicity, etc., can prove to be very harmful both in the workplace and to society as a whole. Our company strives to promote a work environment and world in which tolerance, peace, love, acceptance, and adaptation are valued. We at Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers urge all other private investigators, process servers, mobile notaries, deception experts, bodyguards, and society as a whole to follow suit and do the same thing.
