As you know, there are religious groups saying that they must make their stand in California, and pass Proposition (h)8 to ban gay marriage. If they lose their, it's armageddon!|
Just think. Their entire world will break up, and be destroyed, and they'll have to find something else to do with their time, rather than ranting and raving about gay folks.
Maybe they'll find a hobby. Or maybe they'll start actually paying attention to the words of the man they claim is the messiah, and worry more about helping folks who need help, rather than worrying about who's doing what with what kind of naughtybits involved.
Help them out. Vote no on Prop 8, if you can. Defeat that sucker, and give those folks a chance to do something productive with their lives.
Do it so folks who love each other can visit each other in the hospital, have custody rights, automatically inherit, be able to claim spousal privilege when in court, get tax breaks, and pension rights, and all those other things that straight folks can take for granted.
Love makes a family. It's long past time the government accepted that, and acknowledged the familial bond for all families, gay or straight.
"Maybe they'll find a hobby."
Oh, that's a beautiful (and hilarious) thought.
*laughs* Sunday, after our band's show; we and a couple friends were standing outside the Chinese restaurant where we had lunch, which happens to share a parking lot with a Mega-Church... We were musing on the concept of the Rapture. As in "So, if the Rapture comes, can we have their houses?"
"Hey! That would be great! All these people would be gone, not here annoying us, and we could have their useful stuff."
"And their energy resources."
"What would we do with all these SUV's though?"
"Huh... Recycle them? Public transportation? Really big fish tanks?"
