Excellent! I enjoyed reading that, and it is the very same debate I've had with people when they actually made it known that they supported North Carolina's draconian ban on gay marriage, domestic partnerships, etc.
I often wonder why it's ok for the people who are so vehemently against gay marriage to cite the bible for that one argument when they clearly don't apply the other parts of the bible to themselves (i.e. divorce). It makes no sense.
Let's face it, the people against enacting equal rights for gays are either, closeted and miserable...or...the thought of it makes them feel icky...or both...which are neither reasons to be against gays being married.
Why stuff this obvious isn't "obvious" to a majority of Americans is beyond me.
I want Scott Walker to read it.
Scott Walker is a cynic R6.
He cares nothing at all for conservatism or Christianity.
Strange conversation with my fundie mother last week. After two years living with my partner I finally said no to an invitation that didn't include him (none ever have). I told her we lived together and were partners and I would not be accepting single invites anymore.
She asked if we are married. We live in TN. So no, well, I suppose we could go somewhere it's legal, but as a divorce lawyer who has had to explain to more than one couple why one of them will have to move to NY for six months to meet the residencey requirements for divorce, that ain't happening.
It occurs to me that she may have been asking because somehow we are "living in sin" by living together without being married.
The conservative folks don't care about the "gay marriage" issue anyway.
