The brilliant satire of this 'document' (thanks, ConcordeBoy) really says it all about the current oppressiveness in much of the country in the name of religion. How does letting homosexuals marry hurt you and me? They're going to be together, anyway. Do the religious 'Nazis' prefer that they live together in sin? Funny, they seem to have a problem with that concept when straight people do it. What the hell is going on in the 21st century that we still have so many people clinging to Old Worldesque views? How can people in government (Mr. Bush!) be moving to impose a ban on same-sex marriages. That's BLATANT discrimination, an area I'd thought the U.S. had been moving away from for many years. We freed the slaves, gave women the vote and have largely (but not entirely) quelled socio-economic discrimination against minority groups but the President, backed by religious right ninkompoops like the Christian Coalition, doesn't want to allow loving couples James and Todd or Laura and Penny to tie the knot? Why, because the Christian Bible says homosexuality is a sin? WHAT PLACE does Biblical doctrine have in setting U.S. laws? This is America, where separation of church and state IS
the law! I made my share of 'fag' jokes when I was younger but I'm not proud of them, now. I sincerely hope this progressive milestone is allowed to proceed; there's no sound reason to deny any couple living in this land the right to wedded bliss, regardless of sexual orientation. They need to get the ball rolling in the more liberal states and gain momentum, even so, it'll take years, if ever, to get it done in the Midwest and Deep South, the so-called, 'Bible' belts. Too bad so many of those folk can't grasp the simple concept that it's wrong to impose THEIR views on everyone else. This is SUPPOSED to a be a free country!
