OMG. WTF. BBQ. - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal
I just heard the most infuriating caller on NPR just now.
She said she was voting "yes" on the marriage ban because, if gay marriage was allowed it would impact the legal rights opposite-sex couples have.


How is extending the same rights to another group of people changing/reducing/disallowing the rights of those that already have them?
Wait, I know! It means the rights will be less special. Hetero couples everywhere will stop filing joint tax returns and claiming spouses because The Gays can do it too.
In Funny news:
Stingrays gettin' uppity after successful assassination of Irwin
British Tribunal upholds suspension
This woman was suspended from her job for refusing to remove her veil while she worked.

Now, let me show something that I really believe.
Church <--------------------------------------------separation-----------------------------------------------> State


I thought Britain was down with this but I guess not.
Interesting reasoning in the article with which I'm not sure I agree, of course.

Current Mood: angry angry

OK. I'm sitting here scratching my head, trying to figure that one out, too. No matter what kind of gymnastics I do, I can't come up with anything.

Did you factor "abject stupidity" in there?

If I met someone that believed things like that in person, it came out in conversation... I don't think I'd be able to stop my self from punching them in the head.

There's some sort of twisted, circular logic that I fail to understand from your post.

Same-sex couples aren't the same thing as gay couples??

Same-sex? (typo?)

I guess I would be worried if *I* got remarried and kept having the same sex... I would be frustrated. I mean, I expect it to be different from time to time...

Greater anger = more errors. :) Fixed it.

Lets ban marriage altogether! Those poor heteros have been getting the shaft the whole time.

Let's ban romance! It has only been a tool of the evil Lucifer the entire time!

If we did, we could go back to our traditional amish roots and continue building quality furniture and churning butter.

Butter is delicious. I support your plan.

That's right, who ever heard of marriage by love obviously does not believe in the predestined order as ordained by God! Marry for wealth, damn it!

I think your stingray link points to the wrong thing. Unless stingrays are spreading sleep apnea.

Once again, people have entirely missed the interconnectedness of world affairs. These stingrays have been trained by Al Qaeda to commit small-scale acts of terror. Taking out Steve Irwin was a demonstration of their power. Now nobody is safe. There's nowhere to turn when stingrays start jumping out of the water and stabbing you in the heart. We are in mortal peril.

Good god, I'm just screwing everything up today. I think cutting back on my coffe consumption is doing it.

Fixed the link. It should take you to the Chicago Tribune.
However, even sleep apnea is linked. Al Qaeda stingrays are making us choke on our tongues in fear.
