Religion is the sacred meaning of their existence

That's more pathetic than collecting "friends" on FlakesBook.

My parents never (or rarely) talked about any "good old daze."  When my dad finally earned his MBA in 1932 (with the aid of an extremely wealthy aunt) the only job he could get was driving a gasoline tanker truck over Cajon Pass....armed.

The most thrilling thing in my mother's life (and mine) was the Apollo 11 moon landing. 

Neither parent ever looked back with nostalgia, except for the times they went to concerts at the Hollywood Bowl or visited the Disney Studio, always with Aunt Grace.  (She was a major backer of "Snow White.")

(I think my mother also enjoyed flying in to Salt Lake City to see her bratty daughter in the HOI chorus line....I made an ass of myself.)

WTF are the bigots afraid of?

You're quite right, Loren.  Additionally, the people who are the most vocal and opposed are also the most religious.  Religion is the sacred meaning of their existence and of their entire belief system.  When gay marriage is validated in our society, their entire belief system is shaken to the core and invalidates everything they stand for that makes them "special."  That's what scares them.

WTF are the bigots afraid of?

Change, my dear.  They don't want ANYTHING to change  They want EVERYTHING to be just like it was in the "Good Old Days" (which were never as good as they imagined them to be), because they can't deal with the alterations of the patterns they've become inured to ... and more specifically, to people who live differently from them, even if it brings no harm to them.

It wasn't all that long ago, either.  Loving v. Virginia was decided (unanimously) in 1967.

What has always puzzled me in all these cases is WTF are the bigots afraid of?  Nobody is forcing them to marry someone they don't want to.  And most southerners of all shades are a mixture due to slave owners having sex with the women who had no choice in the matter.

Even in the 20th century, someone who had a single great-grandparent who had been a slave...or a free mulatto....1/16th (or less) black ....was classified as "negro" no matter how blonde and pink they were.

I have some Cherokee ancestors from way back when...that was also considered disgraceful, but not criminal.

Shameful.

(THANKS to the Human Genome Project for starting to straighten this out!)

Carl, the day will come when beautiful photos of same-sex marriage will be common place and won't raise any eyebrow. Can you remember when mixed-race marriage was taboo? It was awful. Some of the most beautiful children came out of such unions.

Daniel, I haven't noticed any "unrelenting tsunami of republican and christian stupid" on Atheist Nexus. We seem to make it uncomfortable here for that kind of thinking.

I've been aware of that fact for quite some time, Loren. 

Comment by Loren Miller on June 17, 2015 at 5:35pm
Carl, ordinarily I'd say you could toss my salad any ole day of the week ... but my wife might take exception! [grin]

BTW, you are aware I'm bisexual, right?
