Starting with the quote that torques me:
“They shouldn’t be allowed to marry,” Maggie Gallagher, chairman for the National Organization for Marriage, said in an e-mail. “They shouldn’t be allowed to redefine marriage to mean whatever relationship (they) choose.”
First off, I’ll refrain from saying “Maggie, go fuck yourself!”. I think it’s fair to claim that, according to the definition of “traditional” marriage that Maggie holds, it’s considered “untraditional” for a woman to use her ‘maiden’ name (Gallagher). It is also very un-Biblical for a self-professed Christian woman, like Maggie Gallagher Srivastav, to dishonor her husband by refusing to use his name.
As Jesus Christ is the head of the Church, so the husband is the head of the wife, and both are to submit to Christ, which Maggie Gallagher Srivastav is clearly not doing.
The law should reflect Biblical Principles™ controlling the personal relationships of every citizen — that’s what these fuckwits want — so it should be the law that the woman must take and use her husband’s surname to further preserve the sanctity of Traditional Marriage — Maggie Gallagher Srivastav should not get to redefine traditional marriage.
Most excellent video by Rob Tisinai! I saw this link the other day, marked it, and just remembered to watch it. The people behind Prop 8 went to court with nothing to present. Nothing but a very weak, discreditable argument that was made of thinly veiled animus covering some out-right untruthful, religiously-biased bunk.
Harold Scull and Clay Greene
For twenty minutes, when I first read about this on Monday, I could not stop sobbing; even now as I write, my eyes can’t help but water a bit and I have a knot in my gut. … I’ll briefly explain why the story of Harold Scull and Clay Greene affects me the way it does.
I have lost two partners … two Great Men. Jack (d. 1992) and Tommy (d. 2004). I took leave from work both times to care for them and I never left their sides. I was there to hold their hands as they took that last breath. I cannot imagine the anguish that Mr. Greene felt, forcefully separated from Harold as he lay dying. I am shaking mad … how could those monsters conspire to do such horribly hateful and evil deeds? This is why my heart hurts for Clay Greene. Jack’s family always treated me as one of their very own; every wish he had was honored after his passing.
Tommy’s family was another story. When he died, all of his wishes, all of his directives died with him. Our money was in each of our accounts; money we made and saved together — taken stealthily by his devout Catholic family. Tommy was diagnosed with fully metastasized malignant melanoma. He got so sick, so fast; the cancer was so aggressive that we never had time to draw up any legal papers, just verbal instructions and his assured trust in his family. Besides, this was not supposed to happen! We were planning for 40 years together … we made it to number six …Tommy was only 39. Had we been able to marry, the theft of our money would not have happened. They even wanted to come into our home (which was, fortunately, in my name only) and just take whatever they wanted. I did not allow it.
This is why WE NEED MARRIAGE EQUALITY NOW.
It is a travesty what happed to Harold and Clay, and it shows the glaring reality of why Marriage Equality is needed NOW. (I posted about another incident in Florida, where a Lesbian couple were forcefully separated by hospital staff while one of the women lay dying.)
This story needs to be shoved in the faces of right-wangers who claim that the current legal instruments are sufficient to give anyone rights, and that no kind of marriage is needed. Power of Attorney, care directives, wills, etc. … NONE of that matters one goddamn bit to public or private employees who decide on a whim that their religion disapproves of someone because they’re not the right kind of couple.
Nancy "Excrement-for-Brains Liar" Elliot, (R) NH
Nancy Elliot, excrement-for-brains Republican State Representative in New Hampshire, apologizes for her public statement last week in a special meeting regarding the upcoming vote on HB1590 to repeal the newly enacted marriage equality laws.
She claimed that 5th graders in a Nashua school classroom were shown pictures of two men butt-fucking and were told how they could do it, too. She described:
We’re talking about taking the penis of one man, and putting it into the rectum of another man, and wiggling it around in excrement, and you have to think. I’m not sure. Would I allow that to be done to me? All of us — that could happen to you — Would you like that happen to you? Is that normal? Is that something that we want to portray as the same as the one-flesh union between a man and a woman?
The school officials denied her claim and demanded to know WTF she was talking about. She kinda put them in the suspect position of allowing such a thing to happen. And, it didn’t. And, what-the-F? “would you like that to happen to you?” Like, if gay marriage is allowed, then gays will sneak up behind you to bugger your ass? Her apology:
Rob Tisinai sends us another of his excellent videos, this one prompted in part by the Prop 8 trial lies of Hak-Shing William Tam, who infamously claimed that the ultimate goal is gay activists is to legalize sex with children. Read Rob’saccompanying post and watch this excellent deconstruction of the lies used against us.
Pardon me, but I am pissed off and feeling hostile myself. Jeezus, this dumb-fuck “Dr.” Tam is one of the biggest goddam pussies I have seen in a long time. This stupid pedophile-looking motherfucker TESTIFIES in a Court of LAW with already discredited lies that he read on Teh Internets and he believes it (and, he’s a “doctor”). Stupid motherfucker says he can’t understand English very well, “they all sound alike, English is not my mother tongue” — YET, Mr. can’t-understand-English motherfucker runs a goddamn anti-gay website in English … Mr. can’t-understand-English motherfucker was one of the people running the goddam Proposition 8 drive.
"Dr." William Tam
“Dr.” Tam has the no-nuts to want to DROP OUT when he is legally challenged on a discrimination-driven hate campaign that he had a major part in leading.
Stupid ass Tam’s face is splashed all over a case that he’s responsible for and that he’s is too chicken-shit to be seen associated with it? My head hurts. Then I start cussing … (ok, my head doesn’t need to hurt for me to cuss).
Robert A. Levy of the CATO Institute:
“The Moral and Constitutional Case for a Right to Gay Marriage”
Following bitter defeats in California, Maine, and New York, the gay and lesbian community has a New Year’s victory to celebrate. New Hampshire joins four other states — Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts and Vermont — in legalizing gay marriage. And the nation’s capital is also onboard. Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty put it this way: “Marriage inequality is a civil rights, political, social, moral and religious issue.”
He covered all the bases, except one: It’s a constitutional issue as well.
