Human Rights

There's a meme going around right now that says if you don't post the text they offer, you are not supportive of Gay rights.
Well, I support gay rights. I support everyone's right to do anything that doesn't harm some one else and someone else's relationship, be it straight, gay, poly, bi or whatever, does not harm me or anyone else! However, I'm writing my own post because I don't like the tone of the original post - post this or you are against us. On the other hand, as filkertom says in his post, I also believe it is wrong to remain silent and let others rights be taken away, especially in this day and age when the current government is taking away all our rights.

Another Lutheran once wrote:
"First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me."
        - Pastor Martin Niemöller, 1945
