@Batnandez: Granted I could argue that a developmentally delayed black kid in Africa would almost certainly be a better actor than Brad Pitt, I don't think that answers your query. From a humanistic perspective, yes, they are equal; all life is sacred. The delayed child offers unconditional love and brings joy to the community, not just play-acting in multi-million dollar flops spewed out by the Hollywood machine and vapidly consumed by a public so bored and unimaginative that they fail to even conceive how much good they could potentially do within the context of a global society. All of us have the same basic rights for happiness, health, hope. Even Brad Pitt.
This is quite possibly the greatest thing I have ever read, for a varied multitude of reasons.
@satyrgod: What? That's a stretch, what about the girl who was forcefully raped everyday in her dads basement. What because she have him orgasms her life was as worthwhile as someone elses? Was Hitler's life as valuable as Gandhi's? Not all life is worth the same and it's certainly not equally as sacred.
People are NOT equal. My skill set may be more useful in the world then others. If some people disappeared from the earth no one would notice. Others play a major role in world events. Some people by their choices choose to downgrade themselves and some people choose to upgrade themselves. Regardless of that, marriage is a basic right that all should have.
Mhmhmhm, what are your points trying to establish? How does one's accomplishments equate to their worth? People are inherently equal. A life is a life. We are all human beings at our core, we don't deserve to be mistreated for any trivial reasons like our race, gender or sexual preference, or even religion.
