Another domino, in the line that is the stupidity of the right-wing who are decidedly on the wrong side of history, fell today when a Federal Judge ruled Virginia’s ban against same-sex marriage unconstitutional. These dominos are coming down in rapid succession as they are always prone to do once you touch the first one and it begins to fall.
But as a friend told me they will keep trying to stop the inevitable and of course they won’t be able to. Just like Humpty Dumpty they will never be able to put their hate back together again and have it make sense. Don’t mean of course that they won’t try, for as the republicans in the House of Representatives have proved (what is it 47 times?) they are so insane with hate and bigotry so that they will keep trying the same thing over again and expecting a different result.
There is no defense of marriage when you deny that right to any segment of our society. We aren’t France or Saudi Arabia we aren’t a nation of mostly one ethic background or state sponsored religion or race; we are Americans the melting pot for the world. We have been designed to beckon to all cultures, ideologies, religions, races, colors, creeds and now sexual orientations. Get with the program you off to the right you are on the wrong side of history. Homosexuality isn’t something you can catch like the flu.
Gays and lesbians are our sisters, brothers, cousins, aunts, uncles, friends and neighbors and yes even our fathers and mothers. They are Americans just as you or me are Americans. Live with it, they ain’t gonna bite you and make you into a vampire. They have every right to live (as Chuck Berry once sang) as they want to live. They are law-abiding tax paying good citizens just like any other Red Blooded American who lives, loves, works and is a citizen of our great nation. They will and they do make our nation better kinder gentler and more unique than any other nation in the world.
What the hell is wrong with that?
