Bash Back

(Thanks Stanton for this snippet)

Fom The Gay Basher's State of the Union speech:
>>Our second great responsibility to our children and grandchildren is to honor and to pass along the values that sustain a free society. So many of my generation, after a long journey, have come home to family and faith, and are determined to bring up responsible, moral children. Government is not the source of these values, but government should never undermine them. Because marriage is a sacred institution and the foundation of society, it should not be re-defined by activist judges. For the good of families, children, and society, I support a constitutional amendment to protect the institution of marriage. >>

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I didn't watch the state of the union address a couple nights ago because I guess I knew the lies and utter bullshit that it would contain. I also don't understand the new vocal Republican obsession of squashing the federal right of loving and wanting to marry another person just because they're of the same gender.

At the bottom of it all it's a political tactic that's being used (and is working) to divide Democrats and other liberals under the guise of only being a true American (in God's eyes) if you are against Gay Marriage.

I could go on and on about the separation of church and state and why it matters to the morality of the country what I do behind closed doors. But I'll keep this short and urge you to speak up whenever you hear someone backing the archaic and inane comments above. Challenge them. Remind people not to be sheep and turn a blind eye to misdirected religious propaganda. Because as many angry gays and lesbians there are speaking out against this, we need straight allies more than ever.
