Oh, Gay Marriage!

An Outtake for In the Life by Harvey Fierstein

"If the man is willing to discriminate against an entire minority the right name for him is BIGOT. If that minority you have deemed less than worthy for full human rights is the homosexual community, then the right name for him is HOMEOPHOBE."

Thank you for such a great post! It really brightened my miserable little day! Oh, by the way the "Protection of Marriage Ammendment" never made it to the Senate (and never will, so long as there are rational people in congress).

Even if it gets to the Senate, it would take 3/4 majority of state votes to pass. This is one of the few ammendment proposals in American history that defines who is entitled to basic human rights. Jesus! Next thing they need is to put fine print on the constitution.

...In order to form a more perfect union, Establish justice...*

*Some exclusions may apply, especially gays, communists, and anyone who is not "Christian"
or liberals who have no morals.

If the constitution was based on "Christian" morals, don't ya think they would have specified? Justice appears a lot in the Constitution, but morals I have yet to run across.

i'm glad that brightened your day, Evan! Oh god, i love your comment about the fine print on the constitution.. it's like the fine print on advertising "some exceptions do apply please see your local congress for details. non-christians might as well get the hell out." etc ;) you're great!

Isn't kinda of funny that the United States is suppose to be the land of the free, but they are taking anyway people's rights. Another thing isn't there suppose to be a separation between CHURCH and STATE???

I think the separation of church and state thing is supremely ironic due to the fact that our nation, whether we admit it or not, is one founded on Christian morals. The idea of separation is a nice idea in theory but it just doesn't work. One has to wonder if the separation is what has caused us so much trouble in the first place.. not that I want to see a hard-core Christian nation breathing down my neck but if we could be spiritual -and- reasonable, wouldn't that be neat?
