They have very piously sworn that their opposition to one human beings love for another is because they are opposed to the challenge that same sex marriage poses to the ‘traditional institute of marriage.’ They have mounted campaigns, and have succeded, far and wide. In Africa, in America, and in Europe.

I am flabbergasted. I am gay. I love a man. Fact is, we are soon celebrating 8 years as a couple. Of course we cannot claim it a marriage- the constitution of our country claims that we can never be married. Since I am a man, and he is a man.

But I love him, and that fact … well, nothing can tear it apart.

Anyway, these hypocrites (I do include Rick Warren,) these hypocrites are so convinced of their love for me that they are willing to tear down my love for my lover… in the name of Jesus. I don’t believe. So you will forgive me for being pissed off.

My lover believes. And he still believes me. I believe that he has a right to believe, even if I do not believe. I love him. Just as he is. And I do defend his right to believe.


Anyway, in the name of love, they are very willing to tear us apart. Hypocrites. Sorry, I do not have any other aptly descriptive terms. Hypocrites.

SAN FRANCISCO — The sponsors of Proposition 8 asked the California Supreme Court on Friday to nullify the marriages of the estimated 18,000 same-sex couples who exchanged vows before voters approved the ballot initiative that outlawed gay unions.

The Yes on 8 campaign filed a brief arguing that because the new law holds that only marriages between a man and a woman are recognized or valid in California, the state can no longer recognize the existing same-sex unions. The document reveals for the first time that opponents of same-sex marriage will fight in court to undo those unions that already exist.

"Proposition 8's brevity is matched by its clarity. There are no conditional clauses, exceptions, exemptions or exclusions," reads the brief co-written by Kenneth Starr, dean of Pepperdine University's law school and the former independent counsel who investigated President Bill Clinton.

The campaign submitted the document in response to three lawsuits seeking to invalidate Proposition 8, the constitutional amendment adopted last month that overruled the court's decision in May that had legalized gay marriage in the nation's most populous state.

That said, I still think Obama is a shrewd politician.

Perhaps you should be thankful you're not living in 60% of the rest of the world where it's outright illegal, or in about 20% of the world where you can be put to death for being gay.
