03:07 pm - Raking the hate I just took out my rage concerning proposition (h)8 on the leaves in the front yard.
I don't understand how rights can be given just to be taken away. I guess there are a lot of things I don't and will never understand. But then, as a fucking weird, queerball American, I have gotten quite used to not really having many rights to speak of.
Oh, and this from the American Family Association's daily mailing (you gotta keep tabs on the other side, y'know)... "Christians, prepare for persecution!" (You know, as a logical result of the future Obama presidency and the ban on gay marriage in CA...)
Yeah. That's right. We people of alternative sexualities are soooooooooo abusive to the poor, poor Christians. Yeah, that's how it is.
When in doubt, how 'bout some "phenomenally dreary Christian singing"?
I'm not up to speed on my American politics I'm afraid but the whole Proposition 8 thing really confuses me. The reference in the prop to marriage as "traditional marriage" is a fantastic contradiction in terms and only begs the question: what century do they think they're living in?
