I wonder how many people could have been helped by the amount of money the Catlick and Moron Crutches spent promoting Prop 8 in California four years ago. (That ballot initiative was written in such a confusing way that a lot of people who voted "Yes" thought they were voting in favor of gay marriage. That kind of thing happens a lot here. You have to have a law degree to understand what you're voting for...or against.)
Bad mood today.
Even though the vote for marriage equality in WA state looks certain, when you break it down with likely voters who lie to pollsters,it's not a sure thing.
What is it - 3 weeks away? I think I'll go to bed early that night. Or go on a hike. Can't take the suspense. Also I'm a pessimist. The one thing I can always count on from the American voter is anti-LGBT bias.
I received the following e-mail from a friend after I sent him the cartoon in the post below this one:************************
During my working life I lived for long periods in many different countries and these were varied from the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the Americas. I was exposed to many religion's (none of which stuck) and early on I noted that most if not all tend to deny to their followers the ability to enjoy life. The doctrines of all dictate to their followers that they must villify any person or group who has the audacity to allow any practice which may enhance and make their life more enjoyable. All will tell you they practice love but in truth all practice hate. Human history is full of murder, torture, denial of education and Human Rights and wars all justified in some fictional Skygod's name. The scary part, I fear, is all of this will only end when one or the other loonies destroy's our world.
I've said this before, but it bears repeating: one of my favorite authorrs, Spider Robinson has said in many of his stories and novels that rage, hate, bigotry are ALL symptoms of fear. Or, as he wrote in one book, "Anger is nothing but fear in drag."
Now we have to figure out WTF these bigots are really afraid of... how can a same-sex couple's marriage in another city or state (people that they don't even know) be a threat to their well-being?
That IS how they see it, but why? I don't think they even know. They just get bat-shit crazy because a few other people live and love differently from the way they do. It makes no sense at all. Do they get freaked out because Muslim men in some countries are allowed to have as many as four wives if they want to? I don't think so. (I think women might have a problem with that...and with the ease of divorce...for men... in those cultures.)
Why should I care who my neighbor marries? I don't...as long as they are happy.
Lies, disinformation, propaganda. Christians are so evil! It's come to a point where I think Christian=liar, christian=hate, christian=bigot. Bad me. I know that's just the outspoken attention getting agenda pushers, not "real christians". Right?
Thanks for posting this sk8eycat. I just signed the petition. Let's hope it works! I was a boy scout myself.
Please check this news story out and sign the petition. I just did.:
more than 350,000 people have signed an online petition urging the leaders of Troop 212 to ignore the Scouts' anti-gay policy and award Ryan the organization's highest honor.
In addition to not meeting the group's membership standard on sexual orientation, a national spokesman for the Scouts said, Ryan also disagreed with the BSA's religious principles.
Eric Andresen objected to that portrayal.
"Ryan has never said anything about being atheist to anyone, because he's not," his father wrote. "Ryan has labeled himself as agnostic and continues to believe in a supreme being—he just hasn't figured out what form that is or how he wants to recognize it."
