Virginia seems likely to join the list of states where voters will consider a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage and civil unions this year (Gay.com).
Like a plague of locusts, hate has spread its ugly wings and has begun to circle our nation yet again. This new millennium is off with a bang... Every two years or so our nation has been looking for new and inventive ways to strip rights from her citizens and to add inequality and hate to our state constitutions. Marital Segregation (civil unions/domestic partnerships) are being celebrated because separate but unequal is suppose to be better than nothing. Celebrating someone telling you are less than they are is the same as them pretending you don't exist.
Republican corruption is going to hit the polls hard... What can we do to distract people and continue harming the morals of the nation?
Virginia will be one of five states with an amendment referendum in 2006, along with South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and Alabama. Alabama's showdown is in June; the other three are set for November (Gay.com).
Really? That should do it. Hate is stronger than love, and Fear is stronger than any other collective emotion a group can feel... and it is contagious. Fascists have always know this, and it is still true. If there is no one to fear or hate, create them. GLBT people are the only people it is politically correct to hate anymore, because if you challenge their hate, they claim you are discriminating against them.
They claim people choose to be GLBT, and thus they are not entitled to equal rights... Well, let us take their argument seriously: People choose to be religionists... People choose to be conservative... so by their logic, they are not entitled to equal treatment under the law. So fire every lazy right winger and evangelical Christian. If they sue, tell them they chose a harmful lifestyle that you cannot condone or support for the good of society. After all, no country that has accepted fundamentalist religion has ever survived: Rome, the Crusader States, Iran under the Shah, and Afghanistan, just to name a few.
This is the flaw in their logic. Whether or not it is a choice to be GLBT is moot. The way you treat the GLBT community is.
