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.

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

  2. DLC says

    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.

    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.
