This shit makes me nuts:

This week, by one vote, the Vermont Legislature overrode the governor’s veto to impose same-sex marriage on that state. It’s a breakthrough of sorts for the gay marriage movement: the first state to impose gay marriage through the legislature, rather than the courts. Expect Vermont to figure prominently in President Obama’s crusade to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act later this year. The Democratic Party has now thrown its lot against the principles and priorities of the majority of Americans in favor of its richly endowed base of gay supporters. Democrats are the party of gay marriage — a position opposed by 55 percent of the American people in the latest polls.

But the Vermont same-sex marriage bill was a breakthrough in another way which has received zero attention in the press. For the very first time, a legislature has formally acknowledged that gay marriage poses a serious threat to the religious liberties of Vermonters who disagree with the government’s new definition of marriage. And the gay marriage movement has permitted — if not exactly trumpeted — that legislature to enact some imperfect yet substantive religious liberty protections, instead of the fake religious liberty protections generally offered to deflect voters’ attention from the real issues at stake.

Same-sex marriage is quite different from bans on interracial marriage in one powerful respect: It asks religious Americans to surrender a core belief — no, not Leviticus (disapproval of gay sexual acts), but Genesis — the idea that God himself made man male and female and commanded men and women to come together in a special way to image the fruitfulness of God.”

Yo, Maggie! Here’s the deal! You know EXACTLY as much as I do about what “God intended.” Nada! Zero! Zippo! Null set! I have my thoughts just as you do. I’m just not stupid enough to think they’re right. Here’s another way to look at it: Take your pick of the number of different variations of “faith” you think there are in the world. Even if you want to be REALLY conservative, you would have to say 4-5. So, using math, which I believe to be God’s language if there is One, your odds of being right are at best 25%.

You’re welcome to your guesses, Maggie, just like I am, but to claim you know is simply pathetic, stupid, myopic, and, honest, I don’t mean to be rude, but c’mon, cuntish. Jesus Christ Himself, Maggie, can you not see the cocky arrogance in your voice mimicking those who flew planes into the WTC?

Why are there so few of us who can see that God pretty much agrees with us all the time?

I don’t give a shit who marries whom, or in what number. It is simply none of my business, and I think Love is a great thing in any peaceful, adult consensual and kind form.

Maggie Gallagher? Hater. Loser. Very stupid. Very indoctrinated, which you know, kudos to the Catholic Church, for whom indoctrination is not only routine but actually necessary for the perpetuation of the Stupid.

This is a Church at least two centuries behind the times, since Time immemorial. This is an organization still apologizing for stuff they did 300 years ago, like imprisoning Galileo for having the gall to suggest the sun didn’t revolve around Earth, and has pretty much been consistently apologizing during my time on the planet for sexually molesting children, and ol’ Maggie wants to defend their way of life. Their doctrine.

Maggie, I hope you don’t rot in the Hell you’ve conceived for yourself. I know you can’t help it. I understand the power of indoctrination. I don’t think you’re a bad person, I just think your microphone is absurdly oversized.

We’ve been “redefining marriage” since the idea was invented. Perhaps you would enjoy being your husband’s property, as it once was defined, but I just don’t think you should be. You are a person in your own right, writings notwithstanding.

Update: Thank God for Sadly, No! Maggie’s organization put out a video on the gay attack and the good folks at S,N! improved it geometrically, nay, infinitely.
