GRRRRRRRRR.

Am tempted to pull a Spider Jerusalem move, and just copy and paste the word fuck over 1000 times.

IF you believe that gays are an abomination, and aren't equal...and should not have the same rights as anyone else, do not deserve to be happy, and that you need to legislate your morality onto them, need to go to a book that was written by a man, and use that as a source to beat others up, when you don't even follow all the rules and laws in your book...

Then please. Unfriend now.

Edit: The ONLY thing that puts a small silver lining is that if I remember correctly, this still has to pass yet another hoop..HOPEFULLY, this state will have been smart enough to vote THESE idiots out.

And if not, I'll be looking for a more tolerant state..and be very thankful that Indiana gave a bit of money to me, so I could educate myself here, and then move to a better state.

Brain Drain, indeed.

To this day, I have no idea how anyone else's marriage can possibly affect yours.

The only way it affects mine is that I'm not getting one until everyone who is a friend of mine can. And if I'm waiting a long time, then so be it.

As to how it "subverts" straight marriage..with the divorce rates, incidence of cheating, and other examples...straights don't exactly need help.

Total agreement with you.

Tom,

I know. As a member of the GLBT community and the proud wife of a US Soldier, this hurts me in ways that is hard to put into words. I live in Indiana and I know that if this does make it through to the governor of this state and that governor signs it, I know that I will leave to a state where I can be free to love and marry who I believe God has chosen for me.

I am so lucky to have friends like [livejournal.com profile] per_solo. They are the reason I continue to fight.

It does have to pass another legislative session and then it goes on the ballot for the voters to decide. Frankly I hope it doesn't get that far. The last time this issue passed both the house and senate, it never passed through the second time.

if it does pass the aclu will fight it, they will take it to the supreme court and it will be struck down. to be honest this might be a good thing, with what happened in iowa it's great precedent for the federal supreme court so things like this can be banned permanently and the 14th amendment of the constitution which while being written to ensure black men wouldn't get lynched(yes i know that it wasn't immediately effective at that) still guarantees that i and others like me are not second class citizens and are in fact entitled to the same rights, privileges and protections as any other citizen of this country.


have faith per....this effects me directly and i do...

It affects all of us.

It's tough to have faith in the democratic process in a place where people decide that you aren't really a person if you don't believe precisely what they do.

That said, faith may make many a folk feel all shiny and happy, but I prefer to put my eggs in the basket of "I'm making some fucking noise, goddammit."

i'm not saying don't make noise. by all means shout, scream and jump up and down as much as you feel the need to do.

i'm just saying have faith that all that jumping, shouting and screaming will actually be heard and that in the end propositions like these will be a thing of the past.

you can fight without being discouraged, in fact it's really helpful to not be discouraged when fighting.

LOL, it definitely is. Albeit I do have to say that I completely understand the discouragement.

I've just got a nasty habit of fighting through it harder.
