In India, gays can't get married, but monkeys can. ">200 people attend monkey wedding".
OK as long as they are not gay monkeys.
So right, Daniel. As the old Mellencamp song goes, "Ain't that America!" Don't Ask, Don't Tell was about as juvenile and absurd a policy as can be imagined, but I guess it was the most Clinton figured he could get.
Bertold, on the "114,000 veterans who were dishonorably discharged for just being themselves" - I remember thinking, when I was honorably discharged, "whew, that was close!" A big weight was lifted off of me. What a horrible way to treat people, especially people who were drafted, or enlisted, to risk their lives and give up their rights, to protect this country that so hated them and deprived them of the liberties they protected.

Sorry, but I'm pasting in the Rude 1's entire blog for the day.
Montana KKK chapter to welcome blacks and gays.
"Jimmy Simmons, one of the NAACP representatives who met with Abarr last year, believes he probably is trying to reform. If Abarr holds a peace summit next summer, Simmons said he would "take a strong look" at joining."
Ummm Uhhhh I have no idea what to say. This is where the word "gobsmacked" comes to mind.
I am paranoid about the "American-ness" argument. When religious minorities in the U.S. start holding non-believers and/or lgbtq people up as "immoral" because Mideastern Islamic groups and/or leaders (imams, ayatolahs, and other Moses-like tribal chieftans, the epitome of ruler-priests) claim the we are immoral in our affronts to Allah...I think you can see the implications of such thinking. Truly Hitlerian.
Dear Cat...there was/is NO marriage ceremony (with exchanging of vows and stuff) in the buybull at all. (As far as I know)...just the wine-drinking party at Cana.
A Christian rebutting the "Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" argument:
"The Genesis 2 marriage model says nothing about wedding gifts therefore God must be against wedding gifts. Of course, no one believes that and no thinking person would draw that conclusion from Genesis 2." (Rick Brentlinger, from gaychristian101.com)
Similarly, it's just as illogical to conclude that God must be against wedding rings... and against getting married in church... and against adopting children... and against same-sex couples.
