So true, Carl. I've yet to hear a coherent answer to how same sex marriage "threatens" any other marriage. The California judge said it best - "There's no such thing as gay marriage, there's just marriage, and everyone is entitled to it."
"...we will march for a true and just cause, for the civil right of Americans to enjoy the benefits of natural marriage, the union of one man and one woman, the foundation of society and the cradle of civilization."
These idiots are marching for the civil rights and benefits that they already enjoy. No one has taken anything away from them!
Thanks for that video, Daniel!
Bertold, "Sanctity of Marriage Alabama", on their Facebook page, is unwittingly demonstrating the parallel between racial discrimination and gender and sexual-orientation discrimination, the parallel they and NOM are denying:
(They're also demonstrating their religiously-based animus, which will look really good to the Supreme Court! :-)
The National Organization for Marriage is planning a massive "march on Washington" in April, and they've sent out a fundraising invitation letter to the nation comparing this effort to the original 1963 march for equal rights, replete with attempts at comparing their own efforts to those of MLK.
I can't promise you that we will have a historic speech like Dr. King's "I have a dream" speech, nor can I promise you 250,000 people will come to Washington, but I can promise you this: we will march for a true and just cause, for the civil right of Americans to enjoy the benefits of natural marriage, the union of one man and one woman, the foundation of society and the cradle of civilization.
. . . . You see, this is our last, best chance to demonstrate to the justices of the United States Supreme Court that the American people are opposed to redefining marriage and will not sit idly by while the elite and unaccountable judges rip marriage from the social foundations of society.
Yes, our man Frankie also just appointed a slew of new rabidly homophobic cardinals. I guess he hasn't seen The Birdcage.
The anti-equality referendum in Slovakia (which would have also banned adoption by same-sex couples, and allowed parents to remove their children from sex education) failed spectacularly, with only 21% of eligible voters casting ballots.
In Slovakia a referendum vote is binding only with a turnout of at least 50%. LGBT-rights groups had urged opponents of the referendum to stay home for that reason.
(Of course, the heterosexist supremacists are probably trumpeting the 90-95% yes votes among those people who did show up. And now, more than ever before, we've seen the new Pope's true colors.)
The U.S. State Department is planning to appoint a special envoy "to advocate for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people overseas." [Boston Globe] Legislation to accomplish this was introduced in Congress last week. Representative Chris Smith, R NJ, head of the subcommittee over human rights and international organizations, said "I am a strong believer in traditional marriage and I do not construe homosexual rights as human rights."
That would clearly entail the contention that homosexuals are therefore not humans. Gee, I wonder what species he thinks we belong to???
The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision. —Lynn Lavner
I can't add anything to the views that have already been expressed here about the state of our country. Sometimes I just want the ability to shake these people by the shoulders and ask, "What the hell are you thinking?! Use your brain for once!"
Regarding an earlier conversation, I'd rather work as a porn actor than to be employed in the slimy environment of religious preaching.
I think that Bush was definitely a front man for Cheney, who could NEVER have been elected (or even nominated) on his own. Bush just played his "good ol' boy" cheerleader and did what he was told. He may even have believed he was actually running things, for all I know.
And we have to remember that Al Gore won the popular vote, and what the Supremes did was totally unconstitutional. I re-read the full U.S. Constitution last week, and it carefully spells out the correct procedure if there is a tie. The Court is NOT mentioned at all in that section.
And in 2004, I suspect that the Ohio voting machines were rigged.
I vote by mail....the completed ballots may be scanned electronically, but I still feel more secure about the fact that there IS a paper trail.
