I happened to stumble upon the pride parade last night. People were yelling things at them and it disgusted me.

Now create me if I'm wrong, God made humans in his image and they are considered his best and brightest creation. But these penguins were made this way, to be gay, but humans make the choice? That defies genetics and science.
Well, penguins being less superior beings then us, obvious do not have the ability to make choices nor do they have a conscious. They can't help who they are! GOSH!

It probably won't succeed though.

Yea, from what I hear that is going to get pushed back because they have the budget to worry about right now. There is a competing bill that would create a constitutional amendment making marriage exclusively between a man and woman. Both bills have been introduced before and neither have passed. I expect the same this time around.

In your Senate, the Republican have a 60/40 majority and in the House, the Democrats have only a small majority. And it's, well... Pennsylvania.

Has anyone been paying attention to what went on with that DOMA brief? I only really paid attention to it today when someone posted a link on twitter which then directed me to this article...

Quote:
We just got the brief from reader Lavi Soloway. It's pretty despicable, and gratuitously homophobic. It reads as if it were written by one of George Bush's top political appointees. I cannot state strongly enough how damaging this brief is to us. Obama didn't just argue a technicality about the case, he argued that DOMA is reasonable. That DOMA is constitutional. That DOMA wasn't motivated by any anti-gay animus. He argued why our Supreme Court victories in Roemer and Lawrence shouldn't be interpreted to give us rights in any other area (which hurts us in countless other cases and battles). He argued that DOMA doesn't discriminate against us because it also discriminates about straight unmarried couples (ignoring the fact that they can get married and we can't).

I'm not quite sure how I missed all of this the past few days, but HOLY SHIT. I didn't read the entire article because it was rather lengthy, but my jaw has honestly dropped. Now, I doubt that Obama has actually read this (maybe not doubt, but hope), but it still infuriates me that something like this comes from an administration that has constantly proclaimed it was a friend to the LGBT community and it would fight for our rights. It feels like betrayal. As part of the LGBT community, I feel completely lied to yet again. Clinton did this before when he signed DOMA into law. I will continue to feel betrayed and lied to until something is said or done about this. Large donors such as the HRC have pulled out of the DNC gay fundraiser in protest.

The briefing itself sounds like Dr. James Dobson himself wrote it. The little I have read is actually quite disgusting.

Not that disgusting, in my opinion. Comparing homosexuality to pedophilia sounds like the work of a rational mind.

Good point.

Edit: That was for the two dudes that quoted me.

I sincerely hope that is sarcasm, but judging by other posts I've seen from you, I assume that it is. Haha
