That this graphic exists excites me and depresses me.

Yesterday, Illinois joined the growing number of states to provide  equality to same-sex partners.

It’s news that makes me happy. But it also is depressing that marriage equality is an issue. That people with a dusty old book can demand certain people shouldn’t love one another because of the target of their sexuality.

I don’t mean to be negative about something so positive. But it feels weird that in 2013, the world acts like a bunch of 1900s-ers.

I mean, really. Not only should this graphic be all green. It shouldn’t be news.

It shouldn’t get people upset or think storms and earthquakes will result from pissing off the guy in the sky.

Yes! There are more good people in North Carolina.

From The Daily What … Cheezburger:

The Green Street United Methodist Church in North Carolina is refusing to perform any marriages until same-sex marriage is legally recognized by the state. The announcement comes in conflict with the official laws and doctrines of the United Methodist Church, which lists homosexuality as a practice that is “incompatible with Christian teaching.” In the meantime, the church will be holding “relationship blessings” as an alternative to marriage ceremonies.

North Carolina you’re famous! You made it to Al Jazeera!

The rural US town of Maiden in North Carolina has become the latest flashpoint in an often bitter national debate about gay rights.

Arguments from either side intensified after President Barack Obama earlier this month declared his support for gay marriage.

In rural America’s so called, “Bible Belt”, many pastors have been rhetorical and at times hateful in their condemnation.

A recent sermon posted online by a pastor, in which he outlines a plan to imprison homosexuals behind an electric fence and keep them there until they die, has gone viral.

Al Jazeera’s Kimberly Halkett reports from Maiden.

Reasoned men reason reasonably about what the reasons are for gay marriage


If there is anything I can do to get you to watch this clip, yes you, let me know what that is.

And if there’s something that prevents you from making it through the whole thing, please push through.

Liberals are echoing each other. They are reading STRAIGHT from the bible on the issue of gay marriage and “one man, one woman.”

And this clip is a great example of doing just that.

No one is getting the short end of the stick. No one is getting made fun of.

Watch it. Pretty please, with sugar on top.

About the video of Lawrence O’Donnell exposing lies from Perkins, Franklin Graham, Sean Harris and any other proponent of “one man, one woman.”

Come here and give me a hug, North Carolina


Oh North Carolina, we’re not upset with you over passing amendment one. Not one bit. You did what your pastors and church leadership told you to do, and you should be happy with that.

We aren’t going to call you ignorant. We won’t call you a bunch of backwoods rednecks. We’re not going to call you unschooled, unenlightened, unevolved assholes. That would be so mean.

We aren’t going to label you the red-headed stepchild of the United States, or post pictures of you wearing hairy ape costumes.

We won’t call you stupid retards or rally against you as the dumbass state.

Don’t you know that calling names would be juvenile?

We’re not going to criticize you for taking North Carolina back to the olden days when illiterate, bigotry and homophobia reigned supreme.

We’re not going to break up with you just because you’ve just tattooed a huge L on your forehead.

We aren’t even going to bother sending you angry emails or tweets. That would be so wrong.

Nope, we’re going to let your silly little mistakes go unmentioned. We’re going to hide them in the closet with the rest of your sins.

We’re not going to talk about your adulterous affair with South Carolina, when you know you’re married to Virginia. Remember when you took the virgin out of Virginia, that was such a great, bloody romp in the hay, right?

We’re not even going to mention the one time you hooked up with Tennessee and Georgia in the best threesome of your lives.

No sirree bob, your secrets of torrid affairs and gay love triangles are safe with us.

We can keep a secret.

Shhhhhh.

See you next Tuesday, North Carolina. Hope to see you soon!

Let’s quote the National Organization for Marriage. I love this game!


“Hollywood with its cultural biases is far bigger than we can hope to be. We recognize this. But we also recognize the opportunity – the disproportionate potential impact of proactively seeking to gather and connect a community of artists, athletes, writers, beauty queens and other glamorous non-cognitive elites across national boundaries.”

Found on the page marked 15 of this document (bottom of page) called “National Strategy for Winning the Marriage Battle“. Read a little higher up as it discusses how to influence minds and the psychology behind it.

Imagine that. Non-elitists using the sciences of psychology to perpetuate their message.

NOM openly wants the stupid people to deliver their message, because they’re too dumb to understand it in full context.

Hey, gay marriage haters … your leadership is hoping your non-cognitive enough to repeat this shit. So go repeat it!

Santorum compares marriage equality to polygamy


Apparently letting two men or two women marry opens up the floodgates to allow three men to marry.

But allowing one man to marry a woman is cool, just as long as the one man and one woman agree on how many extra women and men get into their spouses’ pants.

Makes perfect sense. Especially from an abortion hater whose wife (may have) had an abortion.

Or something.
