some random thoughts/rants on Miss California, gay marriage, et al... - sj
Here's the thing: Fully legal, gay marriage, in every state in America, will happen. There is ABSOLUTELY no chance it won't happen. The only question is WHEN. Most likely in 5 to 10 years, gay marriage will be legal, just like "opposite marriage" is now, everywhere in the United States.
And when that time comes - and probably a lot sooner - Miss CA (Carrie Prejean), along with every other confused, half-witted, homophobe, christian extremist (including the Pope, and the Caridnal that is outraged that Obama is speaking at Notre Dame's graduation), and clueless wonder will have to face the truth: that they wasted SO much of their lives and energy fighting something that not only could they never stop, and that most people don't see as a big deal, but also something that never had any any effect on them on WHATSOEVER. Including going to heaven, if in fact, that is where they're going when they die.
Here's an example from one of my favorite writers/bloggers, Ana Marie Cox:; actually, it's a tweet she posted this last week: "BULLETIN: IOWA PASTOR MARRIES 2 WOMEN, 1ST GAY MARRIAGE IN IOWA EVER. NUMBER OF STRAIGHT MARRIAGES DESTROYED OR AFFECTED IN ANY WAY: NONE!
Just today, Maine became the fifth state to allow same-sex marriage. The other four: Connecticut, Iowa (Iowa! The heartland, where family values reign supreme!), Massachusetts and Vermont. More to follow shortly...
Here's Miss CA, during her "exclusive" interview w/ Greta Van Susteran on FAUX News: "I think that people that are homosexual should have some rights, you know, hospital rights, and things like that."
Beautiful. Really. She's going places.
This past Wednesday, New Hampshire's Senate passed a bill to legalize same-sex marriage and if the governor signs it, the state could become the sixth to legalize gay weddings. DC, just yesterday, will now recognize gay marriage from any state in the union.
"We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage " - Miss CA. And the hits just keep on coming!
this week, reflecting upon the pageant: "It is a very touchy subject and he is a homosexual and I see where he was coming from and I see the audience would've wanted me to be more politically correct. But I was raised in a way that you can never compromise your beliefs and your opinions for anything."... no matter how wrong they are.
"I'm here to protect traditional marriage," Prejean said on the "Today" show of her partnership with NOM. Lovely.
She's also doing a new advert for The National Organisation for Marriage which is lead by paid Bush administration shill Maggie Gallagher.
Do we laugh at her? "Feel" for her? Will we still be talking about her a year from now, when her crusade has died? Who knows. But she sure is good-looking!
