About the Proposition 8 Initiative to take rights away from same sex couples...

... their desperate ads ask:

"Same sex marriages. What does it mean to our religion?"

Well, honestly, I don't give a flying fuck about your religion, and according to the U.S. Constitution, no one else is obliged to, nor do you have any right to pass laws or eliminate the rights of one group of people or another based on it.

The constitution only says you have the right to believe whatever Invisible-Buddy-in-the-sky bullshit you want -- YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE ANYONE ELSE LIVE ACCORDING TO the voices you hear.

So yeah, go and whine about how much nasty prejudice there is against Christians in this country.

You never seem to understand -- it's like John McCain's heroism -- he doesn't actually seem to understand the basic reality about his captors -- he had been shooting and strafing and dropping napalm and killing their friends and families and they were pissed off...

Similarly, the only antipathy I see against those of you who claim to have a monopoly on the word and concept of "CHRISTIAN" is reaction against the kind of grief you give anyone who might have his or her own spiritual Pole Star to guide on, one which is not the same as yours.

You might want to think about this comment from Oscar Wilde, although if it makes you think too much, you'll probably dismiss it as coming from a homosexual man and therefore not anything you need to consider:

"Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live.
It is asking others to live as one wishes to live."

-- Wilde

So may I say, with all due respect -- keep your fucking religious beliefs to yourself and do not try to pass laws to make us live under the rules of the same terror that defines your life.
