"Kick the darkness till it bleeds daylight." - Bruce Cockburn
Really! I had that same thought when I saw those two sweet women. I couldn't beleieve there were actual protesters on the day they were married. What next? People organizing to kick puppies? That picture makes me think there might still be some hope for humanity..."Mrs. Iggy"
This all seems to orchestrated to me. Gay marriage is now becoming a ballot issue in November in California. The issue will absolutely motivate the right wing base to come out and vote. How come gay marriage is ONLY a national issue and discussion when there is a presidential election. Then it goes away and no one seems to discuss it or care. Frankly, I still don't understand why anyone cares who gets married and who doesn't and I wonder how anyone thinks its their business. I find the whole thing an absurd wedge issue and am sick of the right wing clinging to this issue for motivation of its gay bashing, gay hating base. Sorry for the rant. I am just so sick of it all.
Yes, but I think it's rapidly disappearing as a wedge issue: I don't think it will get much traction at all, and those who want it as a wedge will be very surprised.There's same-sex marriage in Massachusetts. The world didn't end. And that has made many realize how non-threatening it is.
