Works Both Ways

This just in from Yahoo News. Some anti- gay marriage folks aren't quitting either:

...Constitutional amendments to ban gay marriage passed last week in Arizona and Florida, and Arkansas voters approved a measure banning unmarried couples from serving as adoptive or foster parents.

However, Connecticut voters last week rejected the idea of a constitutional convention to amend the state's constitution, a major blow to opponents of same-sex marriage.

The Family Institute of Connecticut, a political action group that opposes gay marriage, condemned the high court's decision as undemocratic. Peter Wolfgang, the group's executive director, acknowledged banning gay marriage in Connecticut would be difficult but vowed not to give up.

"Unlike California, we did not have a remedy," Wolfgang said. "It must be overturned with patience, determination and fortitude."

Or more accurately, with hatred, discrimination and callousness.

Well, some say the No On 8 folks are handling the issue the same way here. From some of the news reports I might say they might have a point.

Yes indeed. The slave must never presume to intrude upon the perogatives of the master.

O'Reilly glances at a tape of a demonstration in Palm Springs on Nov 7 and concludes that all Gays are now preparing to snatch crosses from little old ladies across the nation. All of us. Proving that what many have said O'Reilly is true. He IS a moron. Either that, or he is a bigot's bigot.
