Equal marriage does threaten one thing: religious conservatives' worldview that their "god-given" traditional prejudice is somehow the one "true", "right", and "natural" way, and government going along with it somehow ennobles and validates it. (As opposed to other believers' equally revered "god-given" rules, or to actual reason, empathy, and morality.) And that delusion needs to be threatened! (Yes, I'm preaching to the choir, and possibly a few actual former preachers who are members here!)

Anyway, the person who literally put words in the dog's mouth couldn't have said it better!

This is hilarious, TFA, and so true. I've always wanted an answer to the question just exactly how it is that marriage equality "threatens" "traditional" marriage. Are "straight" marriages so fragile that someone you don't even know getting married in another state somewhere is going to destroy them? David Sedaris has a wonderful short story titled "I Break for Traditional Marriage."

More wonderful quotes from the backlash against that horrible, anti-gay pastor here: Unfair discrimination

(Thanks to Freethinker for bringing this up in the more general "Ethics and Morals" forum!)

Amen ("What he said!" no gods needed) to Carl!

Obviously the pastor who cancelled the gay man's funeral the night before got no help from his supposedly loving and perfect god in being moral and decent!

Sentient, you beat me to sharing the comments I was about to quote! :-)  [to the pastor] "if a loving God existed, He would not allow people like you to use His name to harm others."

And well said about the fake gay man faking a fake religion to distribute fake "gospel condoms" in Vancouver's pride parade! (More at JMG) What would FSM say? The anti-LGBTQ evangelist is actually proud of his elaborate ruse, even lying through his teeth on his application to enter the parade.

And I too hope the Ugandan pride parade took place peacefully!

Thanks for the the update on the Florida church.  I love a good, well-deserved backlash.

Three very interesting stories.  I  hope the Ugandan parade succeeds without any violent confrontations or injuries.  I just wish people were allowed to live their lives as they naturally were born.  Those are some very brave and courageous people in Uganda. 

The guy in Vancouver?  What a nut-case.  Girl, pleeze! 

How terrible to drop a bombshell on a grieving family the night before a scheduled funeral service.  Does this "pastor" has ANY sense of decency?  Apparently not.  And some people still wonder why we seek equal protection.

I read that when Dubya ran for gov. the 1st time, some Texans actually thought they were voting for the former prez.   Duh.

Comment by sk8eycat on July 22, 2014 at 9:54am

LOL!

Any electorate that would vote for Dubya  AND Rick Perry for governor has major brain damage.

Dear Grinning Cat, I think I'd rather die than cave in to the Health Police.  I've been contemplating ways to leave the planet for more than 60 years, and I haven't even been able to give myself lung cancer.

Still working on it, though.
