Something tells me God or the celestial bureaucrat he put in charge could give a rat's ass whether the plumbing between consenting adults meshes as intended. Come on. Just how tight of an ass are these homophobes packing they want to interfere in the love affairs of others? Shouldn't same sex couples be entitled to the same wonderful
I know. I know. I should be respectful of the religious views of others. That's what I am told. Sorry. I feel an obligation to respect their right to believe what they want. But no way in Hell do I have to respect the view itself. And I certainly do not have to respect the idiots who harbor such a hardline view of the world around them.
Do we really think we are such a priority God feels the need to micro manage our pedestrian existence in what is arguably a fairly large Universe? What an egotistical bloated opinion some of us have of our importance in relation to the rest of the Cosmos. We are but insignificant astral fleas floundering around on some back woods planet spinning out of control on the edge of the Milky Way. God's got more important things to do than nursemaid Humanity. Did not the Great One give us Free Will? If so , then he's got nothing to say how we use it. I guess he could fire off some lightening, hit us with some bad ass pests and a little pestilence. But why would he? If he's so talented to have come up with the Heavens, the Earth, and the Donald's excellent pompadour, why would he be so petty and bush league to get pissy over who marries who, who diddles who, or who makes the final four on "The Voice". Besides Humans prove time and time and again, we are our own worse enemies. We do a fine job of screwing ourselves without God throwing in his two cents worth.
(Brief interlude - While I calm down, grab a Papst, and consider just why this pisses me off so much.)
Maine is once again attempting to get the issue of same sex marriage behind us. Our legislators passed it once a few years back. But outsiders who felt the need to stick their nose in our business pumped stupid amounts of money (most of it came from Utah) into the petition drive to get its repeal on the ballot. Once they had it on the ballot, we were bombarded with so many lies and religious mumbo jumbo about how God meant marriage to be between a man and woman, the law was shot down. Toss out enough fire and brimstone and even the most rigid fence sitter is liable to fall your way.
It took awhile, but it's back on the ballot. I hope this time it passes. I am so tired of hearing about it. It looks good this time. The negative ads are fewer and farther between than the last time. I guess the Mormon church is pumping all their spare change in Romney's direction. Or they may have lost interest. Who knows, who cares? This time, there is serious bipartisan support. Hell, just yesterday I read even Obama has endorsed Question 1 in Maine.
For your enjoyment - one of the many pro gay marriage commercials from Maine. I especially like this one because the old duffer has such a great Maine accent.
