Though the result in the North Carolina anti-gay marriage amendment is not a surprise, it still pisses me off.  As much that it was put on the ballot in the first place as that it passed. In a state where it was already impossible for same-sex couples to get married, an unnecessary--and unnecessarily mean-spirited--amendment was put on the ballot. Will it create jobs? Will it have positive economic impact? Will it help the old, the sick, the infirm or anybody else?

The answer is an emphatic no to all of the above. It was put on the ballot by busybodies who are confused about the difference between holy matrimony and civil marriage. They are confused about the separation of church and state. And they've embarrassed themselves now and in the history books. They've written discrimination into their state constitution. Shameful. Disgusting. Mean. Predictable.

  1. Just because our country's founding fathers wished for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; that is not a blank check for "anything goes." Family values and moral behavior where a marriage is between one man and one woman is the societal norm. If you are gay or lesbian and wish to get married, please find another country to live in.

  2. All right, anonymous, help me out here. What harm is being done by same-sex marriage? Because it is no longer hypothetical. I'm married to my husband, legally, in several states. If my being married is so dangerous, it must be doing specific damage, NOW. What is it?

    Oh, and as for, "If you are gay or lesbian and wish to get married, please find another country to live in," kindly go fuck yourself. I'm a taxpaying citizen. I deserve the same rights and privileges you enjoy.
