So yes, we elected a wonderful, dynamic new President, but the state of California passed Proposition 8, which will ban same-sex marriage. Guess which powerful organization took a special interest in Prop 8 and donated over $22 million to the cause: MORMONS. I just find this so ironic, coming from a church who's founding father practiced (and demanded that his followers do the same) polygamy. Now, I don't know the ages of Joseph's Smiths many wives, but I do know that his most ardent followers today? They prefer their wives to be as young as 11. They're more "pliable" that way. But two consenting, adult men wanting to legally declare their love for each other? Now that's just sick, isn't it??
I will never understand how followers of religion can say that marriage of any kind is against "family values". "But two men can't procreate!" they shout. Well, guess what? Neither can an 11 year old. Also? I know this comes as a shock, but not every one in this country adheres to the teachings of the Bible. How can one religion declare what is and what is not moral for the rest the people of this country?
Not surprisingly, there are millions of people in this country who are outraged, and tomorrow has been designated a national day of protest against Prop 8. CLICK ON THE "No H8" IMAGE to the left to find out if there is a gathering in your town. If there is, I urge you to GO!!! Marriage is a CIVIL RIGHT, not a special privilege granted only to heterosexuals.
Or, as David says "Gays should have the right to be as miserable as the rest of us."
I love that guy.
