    Yeah, Prop 8 was some interesting politics going on.

    That and disgusting the smear and lie campaign that was perpetrated by the supposed moral right.

    They ran ads that were so far from true just to get people upset about issues that had nothing to do with prop 8 and were grounded entirely in fantasy.

    The "family values" lobby is about neither family nore values. Unless you consider lying and mouthfoaming idiocy to be values you want your family to learn.

    And people wonder why we have a breakdown in morality in this country and meanwhile we have the representatives of morality that are some of the biggest hypocrites on the face of the earth.

    Whenever I hear someone spouting on about "saving marriage" I just say "I agree - we need to ban divorce."

    Or execute Brittainy Spears and most other celebrities. And stop the Bachelor. And the Bachelorette. And shut down Vegas. And all the other things that have been diminishing marriage way longer than Rick and Steve getting mutual inheritance rights with a piece of paper.

    You know my thoughts on gay 'marriage, but there's simply no denying the truth in your post here.

    It's one thing to have a moral blemish somewhere in your distant past while trying to uphold a foundational pillar, but it's quite another to represent yourself pure as the wind driven snow when you're actually worse than you can hope to paint your opposition.

    Are any of these people card carrying members of the religious conservative right?

    If not, they represent your side of the issue and how you want to treat the institution, not us and ours

    I know. Stupid censor.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    OK, so why aren't they catching flack for their blatant disregard for the sanctity of marriage rather than me catching so much flack for possibly, sometime in the future having a disregard for the sanctity of marriage?
