Bush's announcement this morning has left me angry beyond the telling of it. So very angry. So angry, in fact, that I cannot put fingers to keyboard to describe it.
Instead, I choose to address El Presidente's statement, "Ages of experience have taught humanity that the commitment of a husband and wife to love and to serve one another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society," as if there was no alternative ever explored until now.
I choose to address El Presidente's comment by refuting it with links.
A History of Gay Marriage is a bit too rah-rah-male-love-rules to be an objective source, but there's a good collection of facts.
This isn't an isolated issue, folks. This is a symptom of a problem. This is one group of people imposing their values and beliefs on an entire nation, using the shaky, unstable justification of a public opinion that's too often misrepresented and uninformed. This is about making us less free as a people, not more free. This is about changing the document that binds us together.
