I just got this "Conservative action alert" in my e-mail titled, Keep Marriage Marriage.
Federal Judge Tramples Your Rights! Help Fight Back! August 5 , 2010
It happened . . . the unthinkable, the wrong, the outrageous.
An openly gay judge in San Francisco ruled that the votes and values of over 7 million Californians were to be thrown in the dustbin like so many pieces of dirty paper, that his imperial will trumps the voice of the people.
We expected this outcome, because Judge Walker has telegraphed his bias loud and clear. But the sheer audacity, the sheer ego mania of the decision is startling. One judge versus all of the voters of California, plus the 30 other states that have voted directly to protect marriage. One judge against the simple common sense notion that it takes a man and a woman to make a marriage. And he thinks that this will be the end of it...
But he's wrong. Very wrong. We will fight back, and we will win! This case is no doubt going to the Supreme Court and the National Organization for Marriage will continue to give generously to the Proposition 8 Legal Defense Fund. We've already given $100,000. We were the largest single donor to Proposition 8 and the successful efforts in Maine, New York and New Jersey to protect marriage. But now we're in the fight of our lives.
I've been trying for years to figure out how gays getting married threatens my marriage. I've been married for 31 yrs of my adult life and I just can't recall a single reason or event where gay marriage could have had the least effect on my marital status.
Are you threatened by gay marriage? I'd like to know how exactly. See, these right wing extremist say this shit but they never explain anything. Their rhetoric is totally lacking in substance. Let's face it: "Keep marriage marriage" is nothing but simple minded church parlor talk. WTF does it mean?
In the paraphrased words of my blogging friend Teddy Velvet (come on Ted, you know you are), 'why shouldn't gays be just as miserable as the rest of us?'
The funny thing is that these moralistic morons just don't understand how a constitutional republic works. Ya see, it doesn't matter if every single voter in the United States of America decides to infringe one single person's constitutional rights, it is the duty of the federal gov't through the courts and legislation to protect that one person from the will of all the others.
Yes, you dumb fuck bozos, that is what a constitutional republic is all about. WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY! We employ certain democratic processes, that is all.
Now go back to your caves and take your primitive moralistic bullshit with you.
