The LGBT Love Is Love Blog Hop and Giveaway

Welcome to the Love is Love Blog Hop. The Rafflecopter link and more details about the giveaway are at the bottom of this post. I will be holding a separate giveaway just for this blog on a post tomorrow.

As for what I think about love…

Love between human beings is an amazing thing. We read about it. Write about it. Talk about it. Most of us want as much as possible of it in our lives.

That’s why it amazes me to see so many people—who probably think of themselves as loving, who want love and give love—try to deprive others of the right to love. For ourselves—but not others?

I believe that love needs only be consensual to be good. It may be difficult, such as when two people are not in a position socially or legally to act on their feelings, or it may be complicated, because sometimes love is not the only emotion or obligation involved—but the love itself is not wrong. Sometimes the actions or decisions people lay on the altar of love are wrong. But love?

A very wise man once told me “You can’t legislate morality.” He was so right. (He was also a legislator, and knew what he was talking about.) People can make laws. They can force people to obey laws. But no law ever written, enacted, or enforced ever made a good person out of a bad one, or made a sinner into a saint.

A law can tax money out of people’s pockets, but it cannot make them generous.

A law can make it illegal to love (or hate), but it cannot prevent love (or hate).

What triumphs is love itself. More love. So let’s celebrate love and do what we can as loving people to create more of it.
