I refuse to pledge my allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. Until the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, has liberty, and justice for ALL of its citizens.
I am considering renouncing my citizenship of the United States…I think I’ll move to Canada (keep in mind this is late night/early morning thinking). But honestly I am not considered a citizen by my government, so why am I paying taxes, why am I working hard and giving my money to a country that literally doesn’t want me? All I want is to be recognized. I want my rights to not be violated, I know I can serve my country now as I am. But I want the rest of my rights.
I am a gay man. I deserve the right to marry whom I choose. I deserve the right to be open and honest about who I love in my workplace. I shouldn’t have to hide my sexuality when I go into work, because my manager is homophobic. I should feel safe when I am walking through the streets. I shouldn’t be able to be denied housing because of who I love. I should be able to adopt children. I am not a freak. I am not a mistake, and maybe one day “Christians” will realize that God loves all of its creations.
