About Nadine

Bio

I am a twenty year old girl who just had her eyes opened to how much change a single person can do and how much there is to change. I have been religiously watching documentaries and spreading ideas to people that do not get exposed to them. My big idea is that if everyone just was aware of ideas that people who in turn care and try to make the world a better place.

English

An idea worth spreading

Getting transparency in business that we take for granted, such as the MPAA who every American uses without thinking. The MPAA consists of people that have discriminated against movies based on homosexual relationships, sex and race. We all need to ask deeper questions about every company and every idea.

I'm passionate about

Getting people interested in ideas, high school education, companies that are allowed to brainwash people, and useless use of the government's money

Talk to me about

About networking or any idea you want to spread to another person.

Put personal finance as a high school requirement
Yes I have to say it is very scary that to be anyone now you need a college degree but to do that you need to have a lot of debt (for the most part) it is very scary to me that we are having very young people make decisions that are the basis for their whole lives without a lot of education. I mean I have to say I was very lucky my mom was able to put me through community college without a loan but I had trouble figuring out how to get a car loan by myself without getting a bad deal I can't image what it is going to be like when I have to go get a college loan for my BA

Make Civil Marriage the Norm for the entire country and religious marriage a symbolic addition to that
Not for all states. Civil unions are state to state vs marriage that gives federal protections. "A civil union is a legal status granted by a state... It provides legal protection to couples at the state law level, but omits federal protections" I think that religion is about thinking about the things we have in common not what sets us apart. The origins of marriage was for offspring. It was a time where that was needed. And abomination means 'not customary' which I think is one of the passages that everyone speaks of for this issue. But all of that is beside the point, I don't care about religion that is not my point at all. And spiritually I don't think you have the right to judge anyone but yourself. If there is a "God" he will judge, but no human should ever think that they have that power to say what is right or wrong. That is why this is not about forcing religion to adopt a practice but merely giving federal protection to people who deserve it.

My opinion is that if marriage has to be associated with incentives and such that everyone should have the same benefits if they wish to. Creation is such an interesting concept though what if one of you could not bare children? Is that relationship not as important because of that? Are you even considered married if marriage is about creation? I think that establishing a long relationship really doesn't boil down to sex anymore and whether you can bare children but about the life you create with one another which is a form of creation. My point is not to debate whether it is right or not to get religion to be more open to it, but how to make it more even and find common ground so that it is not an argument. And this is a petition that I did post on another site that I am trying to get comments back on so you did indeed read what I am currently petitioning. Thank you for your imput.

That is very interesting a lot of that I did not know about French Policy. In the States we have a similar thing with religious equality (we have tax breaks for churches etc.) but it is very hard to get tax breaks for a Buddhist Temple while it is very easy to get a huge retreat for Christians, it's uneven but I hope with the continued ideals that we can make the situation better. I always thought it was really interesting that religion matters so much in politics, politics shouldn't be about your personal life but what you plan to do in office, if I am not mistaken a very French ideal? :) I am a little French but I am a mutt of all Europe. My mom liked the name, I think originally it was Spanish though meaning melody but I think all of Europe's languages touch in one form at some point. Thank you again for your comments! :)

Well you see gay marriage is an issue that I am trying to fight for but it's not my ultimate purpose, you see I believe that the change for religious community to accept gays into their religious practices has to come from inside the church. Yes I think it is misguided that they do not have that thought process but this petition is about getting people that do not have the same rights even though they are 'civilly married'. For example a homosexual couple might be civilly married but one might still get deported or not be able to make decisions if their partner is unable to, these things I think we can fix quickly with this petition although the religious aspect will be a harder and longer process. And civil marriage is allowed for homosexuals in the united states already it is just a matter of getting them the same rights as a married couple who is not. I do believe to that there should be more of a separation of church and state in my country and that is another thing that this is strongly fighting for. Thank you so much for your comments!
