Didn't even notice it. Too busy being like the gif in trojanchick's post .

I think BEAL makes some good points, too.

I liked what Jon Stewart had to say last week

In ten years gays will be able to marry and all those who protested at chick fil a will have diabetes

The 'tradition' argument and the 'natural' arguments against same sex marriage (ssm sounds like an actual kinky sexual practice) are just as fallacious as each other. I mean democracy isn't exactly a long standing human tradition, for the majority of our existence we've lived under monarchies, chiefs and emperors. Capitalism hasn't been around for very long either. Give SSM another 20 years and it will be as traditional everything else.

To be fair though using reason and logic is a pointless task, as the opposition have seemingly abandoned both.

The Sleuth - Christian Site's Ban on 'G' Word Sends Homosexual to Olympics

Quote:
The American Family Association obviously didn't foresee the problems that might arise with its strict policy to always replace the word "gay" with "homosexual" on the Web site of its Christian news outlet, OneNewsNow. The group's automated system for changing the forbidden word wound up publishing a story about a world-class sprinter named "Tyson Homosexual" who qualified this week for the Beijing Olympics.

The problem: Tyson's real last name is Gay. Therefore, OneNewsNow's reliable software changed the Associated Press story about Tyson Gay's amazing Olympic qualifying trial to read this way:

Tyson Homosexual was a blur in blue, sprinting 100 meters faster than anyone ever has.

His time of 9.68 seconds at the U.S. Olympic trials Sunday doesn't count as a world record, because it was run with the help of a too-strong tailwind. Here's what does matter: Homosexual qualified for his first Summer Games team and served notice he's certainly someone to watch in Beijing.

"It means a lot to me," the 25-year-old Homosexual said. "I'm glad my body could do it, because now I know I have it in me."

I don't think this is any laughing matter. Normal society resents that a perfectly good word has been stolen and appropriated by the so-called "gay" lobby.

It should probably have filtered 'white' out of that sentence too. I know white men are a popular finger wagging target, but this isn't even close to being a colour issue; perhaps a bit knee jerk that you went with that?
