Truth or Consequences

Over at The Daily Dish, one of Andrew Sullivan's cohorts has penned a worthwhile post about what conservatives believe will happen as more states embrace marriage equality a.k.a. gay marriage. I recommend that you read "The Horrible Things that Gay Marriage Will Do".

My take? The woman that proposed the 5 items has a mote in her own eye and is too caught up in the Christians as martyrs mentality. Boo Hoo Hoo. Can we please get beyond that lions and arena thing and live in this century?

Yes, in the near future she might not be able to openly and rabidly discriminate against gay and transgendered folks as it occurs now.

And, really, just why is it that Christianists, given their historical difficulties, seek to block hate crime legislation? What? Have we not had enough pain and death in this country? Or in Iraq, Iran, and Saudi Arabia?

Where's the decency?
