Thought for today

I've never been able to figure out the logic behind the claim that anyone else's marriage would influence any relationship other than their own. I've asked some Bible thumpers directly just how or why gays getting married would harm the institution of marriage in general, and they can never come up with a coherent answer. The usual response is some sputtering about God not liking it. How do they know? It's more like they don't like it and are using God as an excuse. After all, if we were to base all marriages on the Bible, we'd still be practicing polygamy, men would be keeping concubines or banging their wives' slaves, and fathers would be selling daughters in exchange for some livestock. Granted, there are days when someone offering a couple cows in exchange for a sullen teenager might look good, but even so . . . times have changed, marriage has changed, and life goes on.

    Exactly! And, I agree with my pal the Rat - very nice. I had that homophobia shit pounded in my head in the Air Force - Hey, these are people too I discovered.
    What did Pope Francis say - Whom am I to judge? There it is.

    Me and my friend Kevin where we were talking about Hillary in 2016 today at Hooters - Yes, I was fucking with his neocon head...
    "I don 't believe in gay marriage", he said. I told him not to marry a faggot...
