Nothing else matters

This is a good essay on gay marriage and the homophobic Republican/Christianist nutbags who want to define it out of existence, but I really wanted to share this poem from the article.

    That.
    Was.
    Moving.

    It brought me to tears.
    “Marriage is about love. Nothing else matters.”
    Indeed.

    That was beautiful

    And before the “let’s just change the definition of marriage” people show up (you know who you are.) Don’t. Say. A. Word.

    Beatrice, an amateur cynic looking for a happy thought

    Excuse me, I think I’ve got something in my eye.

    Love!? But what of the approval of Rick Santorum? I am speaking sarcastically.

    It seems so clear. How could anyone not understand this?

    Powerfully said.

    I usually don’t click to watch videos.

    I’m so glad I watched this one.

    This is another of those situations where “letting the states decide” is morally wrong. 50 different versions of law with people wildly different in opinion does not make for a rational outcome. What’s needed is an American “Marriage Rights Act”, like the Voting Rights Act of 45 years ago.

    Me too Beatrice. The poet kicked up a lot of dust, I guess.

    Heh, started sappy, ended up leaving ripped a scorched hole through any at least slightly feeling human.

    It was pretty, and moving.

    I still despise marriage in general, and hate the way such a toxic institution is so deeply tied up with our cultural idea of “love”, but that was still a good poem.
