“We’re not actually getting married; we’re just committing ourselves to one another. There is no paperwork,” Stephen Walters tells The Clarion Ledger. ”I don’t know what the difference is between our scenario and a barbeque.”
Stephen and his boo thang Kevin Garrad reached out to the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum to host their commitment ceremony and were denied. But, why?
“We were turned away for being homosexual,” said Garrard. “I understand that it is illegal for gay people to get married, but it shouldn’t be illegal for us to love each other.”
A rep for the museum said the couple is attempting to host a fake marriage and it ain’t happening boo. Not under his watch! “Commitment events, as far as the state goes, are a representation of a union, and state law says that a union can only be between a man and a woman.”
My take on the whole situation… they want us to pay taxes but not be able to use what we pay for the ONE freakin’ time in life anybody would probably be at the museum? Girl, bye. I want my money back. NOW.
