Brace yourselves. You're about to hear from a group of people who have been mercilessly persecuted and ostracized from society for years because of who they are the things they choose to believe.

While the tone of that video is laughable, I do kinda feel the sentiment. You really can't say how you feel from a religious standpoint on this topic without getting laughed out of the room, right now.

I don't like that it shares any kind of tone with the You're Not Alone videos from a couple years back, though. Not at all.

Edit: sorry I didn't mean to hit send on this, I didn't finish my thought. Work needs me. I'll finish it later.

I agree, and like you, I just find it really regrettable that they chose to frame it the same way as the You're Not Alone videos. And the video is so earnest it's almost as if they don't even realize what co-opting that message might look like to others.

It Gets Better, that was the name of it, right? I couldn't remember when I was writing it. That campaign was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen on the Internet. Co-opting it is a HORRIBLE decision.

I do still have more I want to say, because this has been bothering me a lot for a few months now, but it's almost a completely different topic.

Yeah, that's it. I apparently forgot what it was, too.

I think it's good that people feel insecure and nervous about telling their friends and family -- who they love! And do not fear! -- that they are second class citizens and should be denied the same rights of civil marriage that they themselves enjoy. It probably does take a degree of bravery to openly look down on other people. I'm glad they've found each other and can share this narcissism.

I bet the people in this video are, to a person, entirely insufferable.

Let's not forget that the Catholic Church has not only fought against marriage equality; they've also fought against LGBTQ adoption, non-discrimination laws, and in some countries they've even fought against decriminalization of homosexuality. But they're the persecuted ones...
