i'm sure Jesus would be so proud.

Especially considering that His first miracle was at a wedding.

I can't imagine what those couples are going through.

the data i've seen suggests that the Bay Area went, like, 75% against the Hate Proposition.

the Central Valley was the reverse in favor of rancid discrimination.

it fell along age lines -- young people believe in dignity, old people are hateful -- and racial lines as well -- whites an asians were against hate, latinos were evenly split, blacks voted for hate (in a horribly ironic moment ... though, what was weird was when i was just typing "moment" i actually first typed "Morment")

there's a weird, warped thing going on with the Mormons and the blacks teaming up to gang up on the gays.

it's like a discrimination hate fuck thing. can't quite wrap my head around it.

I think it's pretty clear that Michigan people are the wisest and most informed people in the Union. Go Michigan!

in some good news, Marilyn Musgrave of CO got her ass booted out.

her sole purpose in Congress had been to antagonize gay people.

Washington voted to approve a "Death with Dignity" law. Yay for that.

Yes, but it's not SAME SEX prostitution, so it's ok. No worries. I'm confident the good straight people of Cali won't let the gays ruin the sanctity of Prostitution.

Whatever makes you feel comfortable in your own bigotry, Irvine. This isn't a simple or easy situation at all.

I can't even put into words how sad and pissed off I am right now.

I keep thinking back to last August, when a lesbian couple from Seattle announced that they had gotten married a few days before while they were in SoCal for Doozer's wedding. Martha was there and what I clearly remember is HER reaction, the look on her face and how she said something like "isn't love great!"

I can't believe that half of California is so threatened by that love, they have actually made it illegal.

you've protected the children, nathan. that's really what it's all about, right? the children?

18,000 couples and 55,000 children were done terrible harm today.

you must be so proud.

please, tell me nathan, how am i a bigot?

no, see, the situation is really complex.

and has such profound implications for society.

and it's about families and biology.

really.

the implications of Doozer getting married cannot be comprehended by mere mortals like you and i. it sent of little shockwaves around the world that shoot the very foundation of what it means to be human and to be part of a society.

it's that complex!

That comment had really bothered me as well, but I struggled with how to respond.

Is the thought that everyone should respect and tolerate everyone else's opinions, even when those opinions are bigoted and discriminatory?

That we should practice tolerance towards someone else's intolerance?

If that's what was meant, then I strongly disagree.

Count me in another one baffled and pissed at the outcome of the Prop. 8 vote.

I'm glad the bay area did it's part to reject this nonsense, but still can't believe it was this close, let alone that it passed.

Like deep said earlier, I hope the supporters of Prop. 8 live long enough to regret this decision.

I keep thinking about them. I had tears of joy in my eyes when she told me they had gotten married. Now, the tears are the opposite.
